Step by step process for keyword research for content marketers and affiliates… Follow along and create your master keyword list with this step-by-step kw tutorial.

For the blog post that shows how I find low difficulty, high search volume buying keyword phrases, go here –

If you want SEO traffic, you must learn how to do keyword research! The kw research is simply not optional…

My wife and I generate over 8 million visits per year to our personal websites with almost 70% coming from Google organic traffic.

There are two core skills we have honed in order to generate this massive volume of traffic that ultimately turns in the leads and customers for online business.

Skill number one is keyword research and skill number two is content marketing. They act as two sides of the search engine optimization (SEO) coin.

In my previous KW video ( ) I show my exact strategy for keyword research when optimizing an e-commerce store or focusing on content hyper targeted to a specific product.

That strategy above requires a paid keyword research tool (this one is the only one I use: ) and I totally get it that sometimes a paid tool is too much…

So I created another keyword research video for you detailing the best free keyword research tool, here:

But today, in this video you’re watching now… I cover the broader strategy where you start with brainstorming keyword ideas and ultimately analyzing those ideas to refine them down and find the keywords creating content on.

If you are beginning your journey in affiliate marketing, this keyword research video is for you! If you are wanting to double down on your content marketing efforts, or you’re starting a 90 day challenge… This video reveals my exact process for finding the topic ideas to create content on for months or years to come.

We start by brainstorming all of the ideas and intent phrases relevant to my main niche. After the brainstorming session we shift onto the computer where we manually expand the list to find keywords that no software or competitors are currently targeting.

This is manual work! Most people don’t do this level of work, which is your opportunity to outwork them strategically. Most people rely on the free Google keyword planner which means most of your competition are all fighting over the only phrases that tool displays.

This is your opportunity to find the keyword phrases that that tool does not displace your competitors!

After manually expanding the keyword list, I show you multiple free tools that will also use automation to expand your keyword list.

You will then learn how to leverage googles keyword planner analyze your massive list of keyword phrases and refining down to the phrases that get monthly search volume.

Finally you will learn how to analyze the phrases that receive traffic for their SEO value. specifically, how to understand the difficulty in ranking for these keyword phrases with this tool:

When you are finished, you will have a master keyword list of phrases that are hyper relevant to your target market, their goals/problems/solutions click and the ones that have the highest likelihood of buyer’s intent behind them.

This will act as your roadmap for your content marketing strategy. You simply begin creating content like it’s your job!

if you are not finding enough content marketing ideas from this keyword research tutorial, this video will show you advanced keyword research strategy to find even more topic ideas:

When you begin content marketing, you will want to be sure you apply the three pillar content marketing strategy as explained in this video:

Finally, as you create your content and begin to lay out your content marketing pieces on your WordPress website, you need to deploy the SEO best practices on each post as I cover in this video series:

  1. Hi Miles , big fan. have you covered anything regarding Your Money or Your Life categories for the YT and Google algorithm? I found other sources online but not a recent one from yourself. I have seen you niche selection videos but couldn't find anything specific to this. my nice was in the productivity and self improvement niche

  2. I watched this video 5 times over just to make sure I didn't miss anything because it is so full of great knowledge to apply. I am in the process of starting to build a blog and videos like this that take a deep dive into the world of creating content make the process much clearer!

  3. When using keywords in your blog – does the keyword always have to be typed out as is? For example Personal Trainer NYC – can it be Personal Trainer in NYC? Or NYC Personal Trainer. LOVE YOUR VIDEOS! BTW

  4. Miles…you are the first online person that ever mentioned SoloBuildIt which I’m a member. My fear of SEO and creating content is so overwhelming. I am trying to use the tools but I’m lost to be honest. Between seed words and all that stuff I’m just super confused. Your videos are helpful but for some reason…I just feel overwhelmed. I’m thinking content curation to get started but even there I’m not sure how to structure a post like that. I have a nice list and a nice funnel going, but I want to create content and this SEO stuff is really holding me back. Can you provide any suggestions? I want to use the SBI tools since I have them at my disposal. Thank you, sir.

  5. Hey Miles thx for helping as always. I'm building an Italian Affiliate website but I live in Ireland and my google searches are influenced by my position. How can I have accesso to Italian search results by living abroad? Do i have to necessarily purchase a VPN service? Thanks man 🙂

  6. Hi Miles,

    It really was a great watch! I think keyword research is a tricky subject, and your video will help a lot of aspiring users. I have created a process for keyword research, but after watching your video, I gained several insights that will help me streamline my process. Some friends of mine are also starting their blogs, and I think they will learn a lot from this video as well. Thanks a lot for such an amazing share, it was very helpful for me.

  7. Great tutorial Miles. How much do you think core SEO techniques affects SERP vs. just having excellent content? For example, if one writes the absolute best post on “how to remove fluoride from tap water” but doesn’t have “remove fluoride” in url or forgets to write a meta description, blah blah blah, slow site load, etc obviously best to do both, but could a page with excellent content rank without fundamental technical SEO in place?

  8. It took me less than 1 second to like this…the reason? because everything Miles does is 100% brilliant and truthful. He is a top guy and seriously, the only person you need to follow if you are thinking of building an online blogging or affiliate website.

  9. Hey Miles – excellent knowledge as usual. Thanks for sharing. You mention 1-2 posts per day for these ultr focused keywords. I know that there is a number of factors that go into what will rank, when and how much traffic an article will bring etc. Many many factors, but in the case of these longer tail/focused keywords, would you have a feeler for what length of posts we are looking at as far as word count goes? Are we talking 1500 words on average (for example).
