Amazon Afilliates Please Help

15 replies
I'm new to Amazon Affiliates.

I'm having a real hard time trying to find a good niche, with enough google searches per month, with an alright competition.

It's so hard.

So how do you guys determine competition?

And how do you guys find your niches?

Do you aim for high price product niches or low price product niches?

Do you guys register and host a different site for every niche you target?

Thanks

    Hey,

    When I use to promote products for amazon, I just went for products that I had interest in such as electronics. Something which I knew a lot about. So look for products that you know a lot about.

    The only problem with that is, electronics, video games don't get shipped outside U.S due to warranty reasons.

    Thanks

      but on step 6 checking for low competition....

      Most of niches if not all have high competition shown in google adwords, so how do you determine if a niche is still low competition?

        Most of niches if not all have high competition shown in google adwords, so how do you determine if a niche is still low competition?
        When you say high competition are you talking about the green bar besides the keyword? Because that is for PPC competition i believe.

        Now what you need to do is check the competition on the first page of Google and ask yourself these questions.

        1. Is there any Web 2.0 sites on the first page? Ezine, Articlebase, Hubpages? If yes then go for it.

        2. How many links do the first page results have?

        3. What is the pagerank of the websites on the first page?

        4. How many links will you have to build to get on the first page?

        When researching for a keyword rich domain i like to go for competition less than 100,000 in quotes.

        Now for a specific keyword for a product i like to go for anything under 50,000 in quotes in Google.

        Also your keyword should have at least 1,000 searches per month on exact search in Google keyword tool.

        Remember the most important thing is the competition on the first page of Google.

        Can you get there? If you think you can then go for it. And you can for just about any keyword the thing is how long is going to take you? Weeks, Months, Year? That depends on how strong the competition is.

        Good luck,
        Shannon

          Thanks a lot Shannon, you don't know how much I appreciate your help.
          Just a few more questions.
          By competition I did mean the green bar beides the keyword. Are you sure that is PPC competition? by ppc competition you mean paid advertisement on google?
          And I also do research on how many links the top three sites have, but sometimes I get sites at the top having just a few external links, but like a 1000 links coming from the same domain. SHanon do you think the links coming from the same domain also have a SEO power?

          By saying
          "When researching for a keyword rich domain i like to go for competition less than 100,000 in quotes."
          do you mean when choosing for a domain name?
          And just a last question, if I'm not rude, may I ask you how much you make roughly with Amazon affiliates? I mean it could help me get more motivated.

          THank you so much.

            I think it means PPC competition but i am not 100% sure if someone else wants to respond or disagree i would like to know. Don't worry too much about that though what is important is how strong are the competing sites on the first page of Google.

            I do not think 1,000 links from the same domain has as much power or link juice as say 100 link going to different high pagerank domains.

            do you mean when choosing for a domain name? Yes i am talking about picking out a keyword rich domain. At least 1,000 searches a month although more is better a CPC of at least .50 cent and less than 100,000 in quotes for competing sites.

            As far as the last question i sent you a PM.

            Good luck,
            Shannon

      Lol, Shannon's first post with advice had an excerpt of Dan Brock's deadbeat super affiliate course.

      If you want more decent advice like this I'd suggest you guys go and buy it. You can get it for $27 if you try to exit the page. I just felt that because this information was being passed on from an original course that the course should get some recognition.

        The green bar on the Google KW Tool is indeed the PPC competition. It's a comparative measure that factors in both the number of people competing for ad slots and the PPC price for the top spot, if I remember correctly.

        Since the KWT is putatively for Adwords users, some of the data is intended for campaign decision making.

        I usually just turn the competition bars off, myself.
