When it comes to finding effective keyword research tips, you have probably found that the web is packed full of various products or services which claim they can teach you all you need to know in the world of keyword research. While keyword tools can make the job of finding targeted keywords much simpler, they will do you no good if you do not have a firm understanding of the steps involved in finding effective keywords. Here are some of the top effective keyword research tips that can help place you on the right path in your quest for affiliate marketing success.

First, select a broad topic as your starting point. This has to be one of the most important effective keyword research tips because without it you will not have a starting point. In order to find the best targeted keywords for your product or service of choice, you first need to determine which niche you are planning to promote. Examples that would fall into this category are dogs, cats, automotive, and electronics, just to name a few. Selecting a topic is usually easier if you already have a product in mind, but its not a necessity. You can also choose a topic which you are knowledgeable about. Your knowledge can also make the selection process easier, especially if this is your first time researching keywords.

Second, dig a little deeper. In order to be successful with these effective keyword research tips you will need to find a niche within the broad topic you had already selected. For example, if you choose dogs, a first level dig may result in dog toys, dog beds, dog products etc. These keywords are still too general and will not bring you the targeted traffic that you are looking for. If we dig a little further we find the keyword "small dog toy", turn that into "best small dog toy" and you have a unique keyword that someone may actually type into Google and search for. When used correctly it can result in many small dog owners purchasing the dog toy that you are promoting.

Lastly, perform a quick analysis of your keyword of choice. Equally important in the effective keyword research tips is making sure your keyword makes the cut. An effective keyword should be at least 3 words in length, sometimes referred to as a long tail keyword, and it should also be highly relevant to the product that you are planning to promote. It can also be helpful to have a search ratio of at least 50 searches per month. This guarantees that there are customers out there who are looking for the product you are offering. While it may not necessarily be bad if the number of searches is less than 50, it just means you may not make as many sales with that keyword as you would with others because the amount of traffic need may not be there.

In closing, these are just a few of the most effective keyword research tips. If you take the time to practice these tips you will find that your site will receive more traffic than you had ever dreamed of.
