Target Audiences for Wealthy Affiliate

When you sit down and think about all the people in the world that would like to make more money, you could pretty much include just about everyone.

Every person from every little corner of the population could use extra cash and that is really the target audience. So in essence, your target audience consists of the close to 7 BILLION people that live this world, 3.4 of them have high speed internet and would love to have access to a platform like Wealthy Affiliate.

That is a pretty MASSIVE target audience, so within this tutorial I am going to give you a hand with some more targeted examples of audiences and show you exactly how to break them down.

Pretty big and pretty broad right? That was intended to prove the scale of the market that you can promote to, and within this section we are going to explain smaller more niche target audiences and also let you in on some ways in which you can research and market to these audiences.

When many affiliates begin to work on their keyword and industry research for Wealthy Affiliate research, they typically think of the most obvious marketers that are highly relevant to the services offered at Wealthy Affiliate. The main audiences that come to mind are:

  • Making Money
  • Work From Home
  • Internet Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • PPC Marketing
  • Email Marketing

These are fine and they are definitely targeted, however marketers typically run into a wall when they attempt to promote WA under these keywords as they are very competitive. They convert, but they are competitive.

Because of this, we recommend also venturing into other very targeted niches. I have included a list of these below:

  • Entrepreneur Programs
  • Website Marketing
  • Local Marketing
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Twitter marketing
  • Facebook Marketing
  • Linked In marketing
  • Email Marketing
  • Google Adwords
  • Google content network
  • BingAds
  • PPC Marketing
  • Clickbank
  • Data Entry
  • Home Business
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Article Marketing
  • Getting Rich Quick
  • Become a Millionaire
  • Search Engine Marketing
  • Self-Employment
  • Affiliate Programs
  • Affiliate Networks
  • Wordpress Plugins/Theme/Hosting
  • Website Hosting
  • Website Builders
  • Internet Marketing Tools

These are all hot topics and highly related to what is offered within Wealthy Affiliate. Anyone looking for help in any of these areas can easily get help and get training within the Wealthy Affiliate community if you look a little deeper you find that there are even more than the obvious.

These can all be target audiences and I am going to show you how to elaborate on these in a second. However, there are complete demographics of people that should not be forgotten about. Massive groups of people that are looking for opportunities, to create businesses online or to expand their existing businesses online.

  • College Students
  • University Students
  • Retired Individuals
  • Middle Class Populous (large majority of US consumers)
  • Retired Veterans / Disabled Veterans
  • Disabled Individuals (who can work from their computer)
  • New Career seekers
  • Career Development/Advancement seekers
  • Laid Off Employees
  • Unemployment Benefits
  • People with massive hospital/health bills
  • Low Salary Employees
  • High Salary Employees that Want More
  • Minimum Wage Workers / McJobs
  • Passive Income Seekers
  • Residual Income Seekers
  • Baby Boomers About to Retire
  • People Who Vacation Lots (like the freedom)
  • Loans/Cash Advances
  • People with a mortgage
  • People that are forced to foreclose their homes
  • Debt Consolidation
  • People with Undesirable Jobs
  • Office Workers
  • People looking to win the lottery
  • Computer Jobs and remote jobs
  • People interesting in computer programming
  • Residents at business and Internet marketing schools
  • People looking to get a marketing, finance, or business education
  • Someone who wants to quit their job
  • Franchising/Franchisees
  • Ebay Sellers
  • Summer Job Seekers
  • Part-Time Employment
  • People seeking any type of employment!
  • Employment Search Engines (JobSearch, Monster, Careers.com)
  • Criminal Employment (employment for criminals)
  • People seeking post secondary education (can target University and College names)
  • Real Estate Investors
  • Online Surveys Takers
  • Related Forums and discussion rooms
  • TV Shows (Apprentice, Deal or No Deal, etc)
  • Famous Rich People (Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Rich Dad Poor Dad)
  • Hard Copy Books (The Art of the Deal, Buzz marketing, etc)
  • Affiliate Network Keywords (CJ, Clickbank, Linkshare, Shareasale, Kowabunga, etc)

These are some demographic based audiences that you can target. These above ideas alone will give you enough ammunition to promote Wealthy Affiliate for a lifetime!

With what we have already given you, you could easily scale a campaign to make over $1 MILLION per year...in fact, if you put your effort into just one of these target audiences, you could likely make that with just one.

Remember, the average affiliate referral for Wealthy Affiliate is close to $150. Commissions and recurring revenue add up very quickly!

In the next section, we are going to elaborate on a few of these so you can get a better idea of how to research and find keywords within them, and and how to effectively set up campaigns targeting them.

SO glad you are enjoying them and these are things that you can "recommend" and audiences that you can target on your website (the keyword/research category, the website builder category, the hosting category, website analysis).

This is one way you can expand within your given niche. ;)

Revisiting this document after 3 months or so of working on my site I see things in a different light...I am astounded at how much I didn't take in before...even while I thought I was getting it.

What about a target audience in the service/restaurant industry? I would like to target those workers, maybe making $2.13 an hour (been there, done that!). The laws surrounding that pay scale are hard to learn about and employers don't seem to know (i.e. if servers aren't making minimum wage during slow hours, employers are supposed to make up this difference), so maybe a keyword about the laws of employers paying only $2.13/hr. Thoughts anyone?
Reply
kimwolfe Premium
That sounds like a great way to help people! Does this have a name? I’m dont believe it’s referred to as minimum wage. I googled it to find “tipped employees” as away to categorize some one who makes 2.13 an hour. The right keyword can be important to target who you are helping. Not only can you guide them on what they need to know and how to get what is lawfully guaranteed to them, you can recommend other ways for them to make money. You have tons of possibilities here.

oK, here's something that I think can really help a specific group of people in the US. people who are trying to be sober. people who may be on probation or have experienced criminal charges due to addiction and drunk driving. The angle is to provide helpful information related to self-improvement while recognizing the need to be or maintain sobriety, and to provide an additional income for these people. It's based on my own experience and journey and the need to find a focus and hope that is often hard to imagine when facing these daunting circumstances, mounting bills, and sometimes a major life adjustment. I really think a good number of people who find themselves in this sort of trouble do so because they lack maturity in one or more aspects of their life, and they have not found satisfaction in the current job market. I remember meeting a friend who had gotten sober and I feared he would be a different person. He turned out to be actually the same person but a much better version. I told him so, and I think about that often. I hope I can help people become a better version of who they are, and help them realize that as well as make a living pursuing a passion. what do you guys think?

Tough road to hoe. There is a huge market out there. I would think though that you might want to focus on all substance abuse and not limit yourself to alcohol abusers.

I'm getting a peripheral view of what this is all about right now. (Not me but a close associate) It is a hard thing not just for the primary person but for the family and friends involved as well.

If you can provide a solution and support structure for these people, that would be a wonderful thing.

I think it's a good idea. I know a lot of people who have had their lives heavily impacted by isolated mistakes while under the influence of alcohol or drugs - some of those people were also abusers of drugs or alcohol. I can think of two who paid dearly (as they should to a degree) and they both people that are generally good and have a lot to contribute to society. However, it's been years and neither have recovered from their mistakes.

I would like to be able to help fathers, such as me, who have daughters that work at sports bars in clothing that accentuate the scenic views or advertise owl watching. I have nothing against such establishments and may have been at them on occasion. I stopped going when I realized that the women working there were not much older than my daughter. Anyhow, she has had no harassment issues, but I would gladly pay for a years worth of WA to allow her to make her spending money? That is a very tight drill down to a target audience, but can it be that specific? Also, if targeting college students, is having a presence at career fairs and perhaps dorm flyers or stadium/arena advertising beneficial at all?
Just thoughts, can I blame it on the two whiskey sours my wife brought me? lol...

Hi Kyle and all,

Thank you. Most of this makes sense, but...

Here is what I don't understand about finding and then using the keywords... I don't see how I could naturally target most of the keywords, which in reality often turn out to be low hanging fruits... How could I write a post that aims to bring minimum wage workers to WA using "how minimum wage affects businesses" or "...higher paid employees" or "...unemployment" keywords? Actually, in this case, I don't even see the connection between my chosen audience and either of these keyword phrases: why minimum wage workers would care about higher paid employees, businesses or even unemployment? I don't think my niche people will ever google these keyword phrases. And yet, my article has to organically lead to "join Wealthy Affiliate" message from one of these keywords, which I am supposed to use in the Title and in the first couple paragraphs. How? What am I missing in this concept? Kyle, would you really use any of the keywords from "how" group, or was this just not a very good example, and you'd continue searching for other more relevant keywords?

Thank you,
~ Julia

Many unemployed workers are trying desperately to find an income. While WA won't provide instant success, it can be a long term solution to people that are in the hunt for an income not dependent on the whims of a low income manager with delusions of grandeur.

Hi Craig,

I appreciate your response, but that's not what I asked... I understand that minimum wage workers are great as a targeted audience for WA referrals. I don't understand how to use these keyword phrases: "how minimum wage affects businesses" or "...higher paid employees" or "...unemployment". If you don't mind to re-read my original question, I'd love to learn from you.

Thank you for your time,

A potential WA affiliate may see or want to determine the connection between: minimum wage mindsets, and higher paid mindsets, minimum wage and business owners, the comparative fees (capital) to get started in different programmes, or to even do campaigns about the economy, minimum wage, and the looming risks and gloom of unemployment without any backup. Remember that the reader in the audience may not necessarily search those keywords verbatim, only partially, but may still pull your content if ranked well.

These type of keywords may return high quality affiliates as well, since they are persons seeking to understand how to satisfy an audience that is looking to get out of the 9 - 5 rat race, or rigidity and lack of freedom of traditional corporate jobs.

Also you don't have to use it in the first few paragraph's but spread it out and make each of your paragraphs have a relation to campaign topic, theme, or issue.

Hope this helps, however it may be just an example here.

Hmm... Thank you very much, Paul. You brought up several good points, which are helpful. But I am still not convinced that "how" group of keywords in Kyle's example is appropriate for the task he defines.

The assignment Kyle sets in this tutorial:
1. Point your audience to Wealthy Affiliate as a resource for success online.
2. Your target audience is Minimum Wage Workers
3. And closer to the end of the tutorial:
Use any of these 4 search terms:
"how minimum wage works"
"how minimum wage affects businesses"
"how minimum wage affects higher paid employees"
"how minimum wage affects unemployment"

I read your response 3 times trying to mentally plan my own blog targeting these keywords (#3) with a goal of delivering "join Wealthy Affiliates" message (#1) to minimum wage workers (#2). I still can't connect all three.

One or even two of three given conditions fall out of the picture... I hear you saying that the topics addressed by these keywords(#3) may find "a potential WA affiliate" (#1), but "a potential WA affiliate" in this case is not " minimum wage worker"(#2), which would not be a problem if... the rest of my blogs were not focused on targeting this group. But they were and therefore most of the visitors to my website ARE minimum wage workers.

I am very meticulous in this particular example, but of course, I am not running this exact scenario. I am trying to understand the line of thoughts for my own niche and for a different target audience in WA referrals.

Do you understand my confusion? What am I missing? If all pieces don't seem to fit together, what should I do: move on to different keywords, or not to worry about the originally chosen audience? I am sure I am over-complicating something and somewhere... What and where, please?

Thank you,

Hi Julia - as a minimum wage employee constantly looking for income opportunities outside of work, I can tell you that in my quest I certainly googled things like "how to get a higher paying job" or "unemployment alternatives"
When you have that mindset to break out of the rut, you try to think outside the box and you look up not only what you want but what you don;t want.
Hope that helps.

Hi, I’m no expert but I understand what you are asking and I believe you create a list of these keywords to ensure you use them in Articles you post on your blog that the search engines will pick up.

You could choose anyone as a niche. Like you could use many unemployed workers have now chosen internet marketing to earn extra cash and replace working 9-5 etc. or one on higher paid employees are often made to do more work than is required etc and promote wealthy affiliate within that article. I hope this makes sense.

Jewelia,

You have two choices on what type of site you want. Or, you can have two sites! LOL First, you can pick a niche that you are very interested in and build it from there. I have always loved to create things so my niche is customized printed items. Second, you can build a site that drives traffic back into WA. You need to decide what is more exciting for you and gets your juices going. If doing the WA site is uncomfortable try something different. A hobby you love or something you have always dreamed of. The process should always be fun and exciting.

To All: beware of Pay Per Click (PPC). It can easily cost a thousand dollars or more. Try Article Marketing. You can write an article about your product. At the end of your article, you can provide a link to your product. Your article should be close to or more than 400 words.

Great list! The ONLY 1 that I personally would stay away from is the tagline of "Get Rich Quick"...From my own experiences as well as many other individuals experiences, whenever I read on a site about getting rich quick, I automatically call BS and tend to keep moving on...The rest of this list is amazing! Just giving my 2 bits on it...Thanks!

Is there a newer version of this article? After reading it through once, i decided to go back and substitute with my idea of target audience. When i click on the View Result button, a pop-up window comes up titled keyword competition and states the competition QSR is xxx number, not what the image above that shows what appears to be a google search result. Am I misunderstanding the directions?

Thanks in advance for any help.

NicoleJBN Premium
It appears that the article has been updated in June 2017 as seen underneath the title. However, the images are showing the older keyword tool version. It has since been updated and the window you're talking about is showing you the competition directly without having to use the Google search feature.

This is for your convenience and to give you an instant idea how competitive the keyword you're searching for is. If you prefer the Google search results as shown in the article, you can always go to Google and perform a manual search using the following search term.

"YOURKEYWORDHERE"

For example, your keyword is baby seats. You'd search in Google like this:

"baby seats"

This helps Google to search anything using this keyword only. This gives a more direct result in terms of competing websites and articles focusing on the same keyword.

To get to the point, the popup window with the QSR result is the shortcut to the manual Google search. The lower the competition, the better you can rank for the keyword. Rule of thumb is to try to find keywords with a QSR of 300 and less. More would be too competitive. It'd be harder and take longer to rank for it.

I have a question ...

I haven't been at WA very long (about 6 weeks or so) and am still very new. However, I have been so impressed and immensely grateful for all the support and help that I've experienced thus far in the Certification course, that I've convinced myself to start the Bootcamp as well in order to not only promote WA but hopefully help others who are looking for alternative ways of earning an income from home.

Let me be honest here in saying that I haven't earned any income yet (and wouldn't expect to in such a short amount of time and no experience) and I'm still learning the basics to becoming an online entrepreneur.

However, my question is, even though I lack the experience and knowledge of whether WA will work for me or not (or anyone else for that matter), can enthusiasm for WA alone be enough to follow the Bootcamp training and become a WA affiliate or do I wait until I have completed the Certification course in its entirety?

I would appreciate any thoughts or comments - thank you.

Swangirl Premium
You can do it either way. You can just work on Bootcamp...many others have done that, though I have not yet. It is probably easier to just do one at a time though, not both at once!
Reply
Felynz Premium
I did wander if I would be stretching myself too thin but I also thought that alternating between the two would help keep me from getting "bogged down". If I concentrate on just one thing and put all effort into it, sometimes I can get quite stuck and then frustrated. Whereas, if I have the option to give one thing a break and do something else (even though in this case, it would be kinda similar), it may keep me from going insane!

I guess the only way to find out would be to trial it and if it gets too much, I can always come back to the Bootcamp at a later date.

Thank you - I'm grateful for your insight.

No problem! It's a good read and makes a lot of sense. It's hard to promote something that you are not familiar with or seen success from yourself. If promoting WA is what you truly want to do, then go for it. That's what the affiliate bootcamp is there for and the training is amazing - but I see a lot of people struggling with the idea of promoting something that they've yet to have any success with. All the best! ;)

That is why I started with my own niche site in a field I am very familiar with (pet health and behavior). It makes it so much easier to write about products I already use and love!

Now when I create my WA promotion site it will be much easier since I can say I have used the system to create a #1 Google ranked website already!

You can do it however you like. If you plan to promote WA, that's what the bootcamp is for. I tried to do both concurrently and got nowhere quickly. I suggest you focus on the bootcamp first.

Hi :)

I've been desperately searching google for results that come in under the '400' mark but I've not found a single one under 75000 that had more than 50 searches a month, and that was the lowest by miles, I've now run out of keyword searches as I'm only a free member. I don't really know what to do now as I haven't been able to find what I was looking for and now I'm unable to use the one thing that would have given me confidence in the whole venture before going premium.

Has anyone else been in this situation before? If so how did you get around this?

Ok. To be honest with you, I've never been a free member (I joined premium straight away) and I didn't realize that there was a limit to using the keyword tool here at WA as a free member. Have you registered for a free Jaaxy account? You can get 30 more searches if you do. There are also other free keyword tools if you Google them but they do have their limitations. Do you mind me asking exactly what you are doing keyword research on?

To be honest I didn't realise there was a cap on the searches so I tried all sorts, I've still not decided on a niche and whether or not that will be in the affiliate program or not...

Hey Katie,

I just read your profile and I see that you're waiting for a response from Kyle. I think what would be really beneficial to you is using your expertise (what you have been studying) rather than going for the Bootcamp at this stage. From what I read, I think you have actually got the right idea in terms of promoting natural health. This article might clear up a few things for you. It's been very helpful to others so I thought I'd share it with you.
Reply
PeterK77 Premium
The other thing I noticed about your comment on your profile is that you seem to have a pretty clear idea of what you are wanting to promote and how to do it - it's just a question of narrowing it down to who you want to promote it to. I would say promoting natural health is an incredible niche. If you have all your content ready to go (which it looks like you do), then your keyword research would be around solving the problems that your expertise can. You might have to 'reverse engineer' the keywords - in other words, if someone didn't know what your remedies solved but had the problem (e.g. - natural ways to cure acne rosacea) then you would probably be able to bring in quite a lot of traffic. You can think of the keywords as being questions that people want resolved and that's when you give them the solution, and provide them with recommendations of which products will help and provide your affiliate links to get the product. If you continue to create a lot of content in your field, you will likely become an authority site in a relatively short amount of time (there is no exact timing on this). I do think you would really benefit from going premium because it really looks to me like you have a very well thought out plan in organizing your content and you could definitely make it work.

Thank you so much for taking the time to help, I have just read the above link you sent me. You are absolutely right, I have no idea why I even thought about going down the Wa affiliate rd when I came only 2 days ago with a plan... I think I just thought it was totally wrong because I couldn't break it down to make it small enough.

Thanks so much for your kind words and encouragement, my head is clear and I can now regain focus!! Much appreciation for snapping me out of my wobble! ;)

Your advise above re keywords being questions makes perfect sense, I think I was being a little too obvious in my searches. I'll have a look at Jaaxy and have a google of how else to get some keywords. I'm confident that I will go premium once I've got the hang of things I just need a little practice before committing.

Thanks very much, you popped up just at the right moment, all is very much appreciated.

I use facebook all the time. You can do both. When I am in FB I like to find groups that are targeted for people looking to learn how to work at home and people looking for affiliate programs. I join these groups a few a day. Then everyday I look through them because there is ALWAYS someone asking for this info. I leave a link. I also use advertising groups up here that will let me leave a small discussion with my link, like an ad you could say. That is how I use FB for free. When I get going I am sure I will invest in advertising there.

The name of my website is http://getoutofourownway.com. I understand the concepts of target marketing and niche marketing. The problem is, I'm not sure which way to go with either or both of them as they apply to my website. I need major help with choosing a brand direction for my website. At this point, that is an incomplete step in this lesson and I want to be crystal clear about it before moving forward. As a retread I know first hand how vital this is. Previously, not only was I not clear about this but tried to go in far too many directions at the same time. The results were pathetic. I don't want to do that this time. I want to plant the proper seed(s) this time and nurture accordingly. I'm looking for input/feedback from Kyle and/or someone who's had real success and can help me decide which way to go.

I think you need to go with your strengths. I see on your profile that part of your skill set is retirement planning. What do you think about teaching internet marketing as a means to planning a successful retirement? You can use you expertise in the field to educate people as to why it's so important to plan for retirement and in the process recommend products that would help support and implement the strategies that you suggest to them. Wealthy Affiliate would be one of the tools that you could recommend and I'm sure that there are many others. What are your thoughts?

Cheers,

Peter

Thanks so much for your response and comments. I have a non-working website that I was using when I went through WA last time abulletprooflifeinc.com that focused on what you refer to, which was mostly about life insurance products, as, among other things, I am a life insurance agent. It created a lot of traffic but few if any conversions. I wish I could say I've been able to plan a successful retirement but I haven't. I won't go into my whole story here. On the other hand, it's not that I don't believe in the products I represent. I do! I wish I'd seen the light when I first got into that business nearly 25 years ago. As I've gotten closer to retirement age myself, I've become painfully aware of the error of my ways. However, I know people who have done what I believe works and can see it definitely works. What I'm trying to say is I understand what you're saying and suggesting. I agree. What I struggle with is how to present the material in a way that isn't hypocritical. I haven't done well as an internet marketer either. Lastly, I like what you said about teaching. Teaching is my true calling. I am currently a substitute teacher and have been a full time teacher in the past. What I do best is present things in an understandable, bite-size way. At least that's what I try to do. Having said all that, I'm still not clear about what/who are my target and niche markets. Suggestions? Thanks again. :-)

Hey Robert,

An interesting angle you could take from your experience would be to teach people what NOT to do! There's also nothing wrong with taking people through your journey. If your site says something like 'I am at the beginning of this journey so come with me as I find a way to make it work' then people can relate. In a year or 2 when it really is working for you, people will be able to look back over your journey, relate to you, and see that it really is possible to make a living in another format that they may never have thought of before. Just an idea. If you think it could work for you, then go for it.

As far as a target market, you could think of who you were 25 years ago when you wish you had have seen the light. What were you doing and what was your demographic? A 30 something go getter? Interested in freedom? You'll have to drill down into yourself to get an idea, but that could be the kid of people that you tailor your content towards.

Another interesting thing I think is because you are a teacher, then you could teach teachers how to teach! I know that sounds a bit crazy, but you know what the education fields is like. I see all too often that the education system tries to use a 'one size fits all' approach and that's not ideal for everyone. You could teach teachers how to put together online courses that are unique and far more beneficial to students that want to learn the subject matter (because like WA, they get to do it at their own pace). The best resource for this that I have come across is Eben Pagan. I'm sure there are others, but he has thorough courses that teach how to create information products (online courses) and then sell them. He also has affiliate programs for his courses, so you could start the education process for the teachers and then recommend his courses. You might want to study his material so that you can come from a genuine place of understanding his teachings.

Are any of these ideas in lone with what you're thinking?

Okay, okay. I'm reading this very carefully on this go around. I'm not just glossing through the material. So it's about this statement.

"With what we have already given you, you could easily scale a campaign to make over $1 MILLION per year...in fact, if you put your effort into just one of these target audiences, you could likely make that with just one."

OMG! How can you not get excited reading a statement like that. Is this really possible? You would think that the potential is there considering 3.4billion have high speed internet and everybody needs more money.

All I can say is, thanks Kyle for the encouraging words. My wife would be very happy if I could make this happen at 70. I'm looking forward to see what actually will need to be done and how fast I can start getting results. It's about potential at this time.

When the rubber hits the road, you will find that differentiation is difficult to achieve but achievable. Being creative in the middle of a large community would require thinking out of the box and originality. I agree with Kyle when he tackles the issue of substance content with substance that is key word rich, versus key words rich content with no substance. Originality pays even in cyberspace albeit hard to patent, so you just keep on creating, to do so you need to know your niche, which in many cases means no more that doing a little reading.

kind of competition you're up against for sites like

I also agree with Leon. We are creating a real business here at WA and it is going to take time and effort, but with dedication and hard work we can be successful. I have shifted my focus away from ideas like 'easy money' and 'passive income' long ago as I have found these opportunities to be shady at best or simply do not work. Instead, let's take the time to get this training right and build an online business we would be proud of owning.

I like your website name Leon, I still need to come up with mine.

There's a lot happening these days in terms of chronic pain and chronic illness, with some big commission affiliate programs in the health niche - which seems indicated in your profile - however it is not get rich quick and content marketing involves writing quality original content to your site 3 times a week on average as well as going through and implementing the training here - time varies depending on the individual and their commitment. Big results posted recently by some fairly new people, while others struggle for longer - but it will depend as much on the person as the process...

That's a valid question, Thomas, but only you can answer that question. There are some who can only spare a few hours a week, while others can spend several hours a day going through the Certification and interacting with other members.

Since you're just starting out, perhaps you may just want to start out with just 2 or 3 hours a day, with the focus on the training. Maybe you can set aside 2 hours towards training and the other hour interacting within the community by reading posts. The beauty of this training is that you really can establish your own pace, so you can do as much or as little as you want. The important thing is that you fully understand each lesson before moving forward.

All the best to you, Thomas.

Ok. I think a lightbulb may have just gone off, but I want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. Ideally I want to choose as many of these high traffic, low competition keywords as possible and find a way to insert them into my website in such a way that it still sounds, looks, and reads good. And by inserting these keywords into my website, Google automatically plugs my site into the potential customer's search results simply because my article contains one of the words that the person searched for? Also the more keywords I have in one article, the more diverse my potential customer base is correct? I.e. If my website had the sentence...Are you looking for new ways to diversify your portfolio...then anyone searching for diversify and/or portfolio could potentially come across my site in a search? Last question. Does adding the keyword into your site more times allow for a higher rating from the search engine? I'm probably getting ahead of myself and all that will be explained, but while my head is wrapped around this part I'd just like to clarify so that while building my knowledge base I have as solid a foundation as possible. Any comments and/or feedback is appreciated. Thankyou.

Hi Jason, regarding the last two points some caution imo:

beware of 'keyword stuffing' in two ways, overusing the same keyword won't go well and you'll see a lot of people talking about targeting one keyword in a post - and using it strategically in the title, first paragraph, elsewhere, yet you are right in that a diversity of keywords that come naturally in a nice long post of high quality original content will all get picked up too

some people's blogs and training to check out on this are Jvranjes, Boomergp08, Magistudios, Nathaniell...and try the search bar top of page for others
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
You are mainly correct. Though Google will rank your pages and posts on the overall quality of your content and not just on keywords, using keywords strategically are important.

For example the keyword, How to Make Money with a Blog, is a popular keyword with 3233 monthly searches and a low competition of 165. Those numbers may not mean much to you now, but they will once you start doing keyword research.

You would take that keyword and put it in your post title. That title could look like the following, How to Make Money with a Blog in Affiliate Marketing.

Then when you start writing your content you want to place your target keyword in the first paragraph, it could look like the following.

Are you looking for a way to earn some money from home in a fun way? Well in this post I will explain how to make money with a blog doing a form of online affiliate marketing. This could be an enjoyable way to promote products that you know and love.

In the above paragraph, notice how I placed the keyword How to Make Money with a Blog into the flow of my opening paragraph. It reads very natural and didn't seem like I stuffed that keyword into the content in an unnatural way.

RECAP...

You want to place your target keyword in your page or post title. Then you want to place your target keyword in the first paragraph naturally. Then you do NOT want to use your target keyword again through out the rest of your content.

However, if your content is long, like 1000 words or more long, you may want to use the target keyword again near the end of the content. It could be within a paragraph where you are recapping the information, but you really do not want to use that keyword more than twice within your entire content.

Then if we had let's say 10 low competition keywords, could we use them all within the content in the same manner as you have described?

Is there a limit?

Is there a rule of thumb, between 3-5 let's say?

If we used several keywords within the content and let's say the third keyword ranked on a search if the customer clicked on the link then wouldn't the page be opened at where the keyword was within the page, which I guess is what we don't want, or do we?

Maybe you could keep it down to a minimum for that web page and then create additional blogs and rank for the remainder of the low competition keywords?

Is there a rule of thumb with regards to a number of words on the page?

Web page?
Blog post?
Reply
MozMary Premium
I'm hearing the rule of thumb is to target one keyword per article/post/page

So people advise not to target 10 keywords in the one post, but make 10 posts targeting those keywords [makes sense, as it could be a bit of an overkill for one post if it is already ranking high in the SERPs and also a bit of a waste of 10 good keywords]

Rule of thumb for word count is 1500 words, see in site manager where it talks about site health...

I hear what you are saying, but If you are only targeting one keyword on your page and that one keyword has a monthly search of around 100 then your HIT rate is going to be low, whereas if you targeted 5 keywords each with a monthly search of 100 then my success is going to be greater right? 100 against 500.
Reply
boomergp08 Premium
The rule is 1 target keyword per page or post. Google does not highly rank content with lots of keywords. They did a few years ago but not anymore.

The minute you start adding a bunch of additional keywords to your target keyword in your content, is the minute your content quality will go down and so will your chances higher rankings.

When you stop focusing on keywords beyond your target keyword and just provide helpful information, Google will reward you with higher rankings, because Google wants to see quality content and not keyword stuffed content.

It is totally possible to rank highly on Google and the other search engines WITHOUT using a target keyword, because like I said, you are ranked on quality content. In fact you will get ranked on natural keywords within your content.

To understand in detail how this will happen and how to know what non-target keywords your content is being ranked for, check out the training tutorial below.

Do not try to make every single page and post be a winner as far as hit rates. Seeing how you are creating a website that will eventually have 50 plus posts and pages, your traffic will come from the whole website and not just one particular page or post.

Wozzy, boomer is right on this - it does seem a little counterintuitive but that's where long posts of high quality naturally compensate by having lots of natural keywords in them - my first articles all got found by 1000s of people without target keywords because I wrote quality original content - and I get your confusion on this one, great point about the one keyword - but that 'one keyword' thing is a strategy in itself...you'd be aiming for that 100 searches but not confining yourself to them

the way it is with tracking anyway you can try all three strategies and see how you get on... :)

Ok, I searched keyword and I came to a list where result list is low.. but, high traffic and low competition. How do I decide which one do I want to dig? I did some digging in one and came to a longer result list. traffic was through the roof and competition was very low and some were like 15 from being 300 in the competition.
I guess I'm asking when do I stop and choose? I know I have seen a video of that last week on narrowing it down. But, I don't remember where on this site.

Actually what's really great about WA is that it's NOT an MLM schemes, and so many MLM programs are schemes, and as WA uses Paypal they would be shut off if it turned into that! Just the premium program alone has so many other benefits! If you want to have benefits for affiliate signups, there are a few things you can do, like maybe offer some PLR products, some e-books are programs you have give-away rights to for signups, and you can run those off your blog if you created one to advertise your Wealthy Affiliate links!

Thank you, Terry Vandal I am glad not to be categorized as MLM with WA.

I understand now that each new member is directly connected to be credited and linked to the approaching WA member that initially had received direct response interest to become a WA new subscriber-member. This way I could make a mental note to understand how it works within the WA hierarchy?

One tip I've learned when it comes to promoting is to avoid talking solely about your company and its products. Instead, focus on making a friend and figuring out what their pain or problem is.

Let's say you're working with a company called "Traffic Guru" (theoretical example). Well, if you're on social media trying to promote it by screaming "TRAFFIC GURU can do this, TRAFFIC GURU will help you with that, TRAFFIC GURU, TRAFFIC GURU, TRAFFIC GURU", you've likely already eliminated 90% of your marketplace. The moment you label yourself with that one specific business, you no longer have that personal connection with your customer. They want to see who YOU are and what YOU have to share.

Here's the difference. "Hey everyone, I just started learning some new strategies for online marketing that are able to generate 30-50 qualified leads each day! This has taken my business to a whole new level, and I can show you how I did it! Anyone interested?"

When you can connect individuals with each other as a leader and add value, you'll find that many will begin to see you as an authority in your niche, and will begin to jump ship so they too can move forward in their business.

I hope this helps!

Let's say your target audience is "High Salary Employees that Want More" in the training, I am not sure how that will affect the keyword. If you are writing a review about a home business scam, the keyword will still be the same whether this wealthy person is clicking on the link or a homeless person.

Are you saying that "my voice" and the way I write is geared towards that high salary person but a homeless person reading the article may still possibly benefit signup for WA, but I SHOULD have at least a certain "kind of voice" so that the high salary person will LIKE more of my blogs and eventually build more and more trust in me?

They way you promote would be your lead to be followed.

Careful how you differentiate yourself.

I'm not clear on the response. I am just trying to get clarification on the training. In my example, I was just randomly picking one of the target audiences. How would my style differ talking to a "high-salaried employee looking for more" vs "Passive income seekers"? My voice would pretty much be the same so that's why I was not clear why we need to be so narrow.

Hello, Rob. I think you can be specific in your domain name and in the title of your post or page. It's up to you, who you want to target.

From what I understand this is what to file your site under to reach the largest audience. This is about marketing research to better promote your product.

Okay hold up, wait a minute. That's a song from some where. :) but seriously. I got confused for a moment. So with this should I be creating a whole new site just for promoting WA and targeting people for it. Or is this also used or applied to my website with my niche or my blog?

People who promote WA have a dedicated site to promote WA. You don't mix niches on one website.

For your niche site, you can however put a little link at the bottom of your site to say something like "Like My Website? You can learn how to build yours too here." and link your affiliate link to it.

Just a quick question,,, I am very strapped for time and don't hae time to hang out of social media,,, What do I do,,, do I choose one and "BE" and make an effort there or do I still post to all these pages and then just concentrate on one platform,,, not too sure as I don't have to time to engage on all these platfroms every day

You can choose one and focus on it. You don't have to overwhelm yourself by trying to do them all. Best wishes to your success!

Since I'm going to be promoting Wealthy Affiliate in IM (a really large audience) do I need to have different sites or just focus on using the Keywords to get the exposure. Unless I change my Niche it seems to be wasting resources like the time to fill up a site with content - do most successful affiliates use seperate sites or just fully develope the one.

You can have just one site Louis and laser beam your efforts on it. You do have the option to get a second one later which some venture to doing once the first gets fully-developed contents-wise. Great questions sir!

Cheers!

Thanks,This all helps in the decisions I make going forward, that was my feeling I guess when It starts getting conversions is when I should revisit this at that time.

This is good information. I was actually thinking of a specific niche and My wife said that there would probably not be a place for that here and what do you know it is actually on the list and I doubt that alot of folks are using it. Definitely encouraged.
