    I don't believe Amazon would sell "anything of low competition".

    It's really easy. Simply choose a category on the left menu, choose a sun-category and so forth until you're in a category that takes your interest. Check items with 4/5 stars and 10+ reviews in Google Keyword Tool - if it has 1,000+ searches go to your browser and do some competition analysis.

    Competition analysis can consist of checking for number of targeted backlinks, PR (don't take too much notice of this. Also check title, meta description and H1 for keywords - rinse and repeat until you find something that has lower than 100 targeted backlinks.

    There really aren't any low competition niches anymore. There are 7 billion people in this tiny world competiting to make money and survive, they are everywhere. You've just got to pick a niche, create something cool for it, and get in there and slug it out with the competition (and team up with them for partnerships and joint ventures).

      Sorry I have to disagree here there are lots of low competition niches but whats not easy is the effort it takes to find them BUT THEY ARE THERE.

      Think outside the box, and dig deep into niches and you will find those Golden Nuggets.

      Kickin it on Amazon

        MaverickUK has already given really good advice about how to select your product for your review site.

        I would say this to further the point, that although there maybe other people who have reviewed the product the reviews are often not very good.

        Most people (and I'm guilty of this myself sometimes) create some pretty thin content for the review site.

        When I have done detailed, quality review of around 1000 words I have gotten good results even when competition analysis said it would be difficult to rank.

        So my point would be do good work and don't worry so much about the competition

      There are definitely 7 billion people in the world, however, just a small fraction of those are actively trying to make money doing so online.

      I can't seem to find the article at the moment, but I seem to remember reading that Google claims about 20% of the searches they see on a daily basis are BRAND NEW--meaning that they have never been searched for before.

      Couple that with millions of undiscovered niches and your bound to find plenty of low competition keywords. Even then for most medium-competitive keywords ranking isn't all that hard.

      To think that there aren't any low competition niches left is like saying we will run out of oxygen tomorrow.

    Don't worry about low competition for Amazon products in themselves. What you should really be looking for is low competition in your niche.

    By that I mean finding sought after product keywords where the SE competition isn't too hot. Then focus on building content around those keywords for your Amazon site.

    In fact it helps to have popular Amazon products on your site as they are more likely to sell. All you have to do is pick up on what people are looking for and direct them to the right product.

    When we speak of low competition in IM, we are generally referring to keywords with low competition. The niche you are in is what defines what kinds of products you promote and thus the keywords you aim for. Product-related keywords convert the best, so you want to find keywords with low competition for products that are selling well -- really easy on Amazon.

    It would also be a good idea to choose products from a niche that you're kind of into or know something about just to save yourself some time on research. When it comes to promoting products during this time of year, you can't really rely on keyword tools since they are usually months behind and not always accurate. There are other indicators you can use like what people are actually typing into Google search and so on.

    Good luck,
    Joey

    There are things to be found on a daily basis, although it is tougher at this time of year with marketers trying to catch the Christmas traffic. Look for products types like TV's, Blu-ray's, home cinema, systems, coffee makers, fitness equipment and try to promote items that have just been launched in the past six months.

        RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH and then more RESEARCH choose a niche, find forums that discuss the products in that Niche, sign up to manufacturer newsletters, look for trade shows in certain niches, (they always have new products, and use the trade show to introduce them to the market) use Google and search for new products use multiple search terms to find new products in different niches.

        Thinking ahead is one of my favorite strategys but you have to be patient but they are all around you if you just make an effort.

        Here is a link to the TOP 10 picks for NEW products for 2012 in the Triathalon niche took me less than 1 minute to find.

    Look, review websites can often give you backdoor access to the biggest markets online. The keywords are traditionally easier to rank for. Now aside from that, you can repeatedly find micro niches within the major categories of Amazon, and this is only speaking of physical products of course.

    It should be reassuring to note that even if everyone on this forum decided to tackle Amazon promotions, we could never keep up with the increasing global demand in the global marketplace that is Amazon.

    Finding a niche where the top 3 to 5 sites in Google (for the main KW you are targeting) has less than 100 BLs each might be more difficult than you think.

    A more realistic number for these lesser competitive niches (surrounding KWs and products with decent monthly search volumes) is probably going to be more around 500 to 1000 BLs on the higher ranking sites (ranked 1 - 3)...which is where you want to be so thats who you will have to beat.

    That's not to say you can't find good niches with reasonable competition levels because they are out there but it will require you to do a fair amount of research.

    Good luck!
