Use This Site To Find Keywords
Hey, I was researching keywords and found an EXCELLENT site to help with keyword ideas:
The Gadget Flow is a website that lists new and expensive products in all markets. A lot of these products are high end, expensive and have new technologies (meaning you can be the first to write about them).
If you're looking to create some extremely low competition best of lists, this website can help you. In fact, you can find keywords where you'll rank without the word "best" too.
For example, I typed in bike (https://thegadgetflow.com/?s=bike) and immediately saw some great keywords:
The Best electric bike conversion kit - 153 search, 28 QSR
Best bike GPS tracker - 48,8
Google "best electric bike conversion kit" and what do you notice? The 5th results has "2017" in the title! Google loves new content and you can easily rank in the top 5 for that keyword.
Google "Best bike GPS tracker" and what do you notice? There's basically no competition for this keyword (there's only 3 results on page 1 that are even best of lists and they're all the top 3 results).
Now type in "bike gps tracker" and what do you notice? The first results is a best of list! In fact, all 3 best of lists show up on page one for "bike gps tracker" and that search results gets 210 searches. But there's also "bicycle gps tracker" that gets 189 searches, "bike gps tracking" that gets 79 searches, "gps tracker for bike" gets 160 searches and so on.
Best bike gps tracker may only get you 48 searches but if you add up all the other variations you can rank for and you'll most likely get over 1,000 clicks a month to this article in time.
I've ranked for keywords like this (small traffic with "best" and more traffic without it) and no from first hand experience they can bring in over 1,000 clicks a month.
There could even be a chance, in time, you rank for "electric bike conversion kit" if you write the that post well and that gets over 3,000 searches alone.
Hope this helps!
