Video instructions: Use Free Google Keyword Tool to get Seed Keywords

This video is a step by step visual tutorial that covers steps #1 - #7 above which shows you exactly how to use Googles Free Keyword tool to turn your root keyword (in this example, training German Shepherds) build your list of seed keywords. The whole purpose of this is to take your one root keyword and multiply that into dozens or even hundreds of variations. All of these variations of the root keyword are called seed keywords because it is these keywords we are going to input into the Jaaxy keyword tool which will give us the goldmine keywords: keywords with little competition and good search volume. It is from these keywords that we will build our affiliate website around. The more seed keywords we have to input into Jaaxy the more opportunities we have to find long tail keywords with very little competition.

Using Jaaxy Keyword Tool to Find Goldmine Long Tail, No Competition Keyword Phrases

This part of the keyword research is where you should get really excited. This is where you find exact keyword phrases that have very little competition that people are search for. It is the keyword phrases you are about to dig up using Jaaxy that your entire affiliate website is going to be structured and oriented around.

➀ Log into your Jaaxy account. If you don't have one create one. It's not free but it is very inexpensive and trust me it is worth it, you need it. There are other keyword tools out there but they are either outdated because of major changes to SEO and how search engines work (i.e. Wordtracker) or they are just way too expensive (i.e. Wordstream).

with email and password.

Jaaxy is only $19 per month and is as good and powerful as any keyword tools costing $100 or more per month and Jaaxy is actually easier to use that the more expensive keywords tools. Jaaxy also has a totally FREE TRIAL so you can find out for yourself.

NOTE: you should avoid any software program keyword tool and use web based keyword tools (like Jaaxy) only.

This is because all the software keywords programs such as Niche Finder, Long Tail Pro and Keyword Elite all merely interface with the Free Google Keyword tool. These software programs merely present the keyword data to you in a more structured and organized matter with additional information but for our purpose, to build an ongoing, money making, affiliate website, these keyword tools are completely useless. The ONLY software based keyword tool you should consider is called Keyword Researcher which scrapes from Googles massive autocomplete database which is totally different. This produces very long tail, low competition keyword phrases 5 words or more long.

➁ Click on the Search tab at the top of the page.

Jaaxy click the 'Search'

➂ Enter the first of your seed keywords that you found in steps #1 - #7 above, in the Jaaxy Keyword Tool. In about 5 seconds Jaaxy will return a list of a dozen or more related keywords phrases listing the number of searches for each keyword phrase. What is REALL COOL about Jaaxy is Jaaxy color codes the keyword phrases it produces as a fast and easy indicator of how little or how much competition each keyword phrase has. Just look for the keyword phrases that are color coded green and avoid the yellow and red.

This color coding feature of Jaaxy makes finding the keywords with the best SEO score really fast, easy and effortless.(SEO Score is a numerical value from 1 - 100 that indicates how easy or hard it will be to get a web page or blog post on the first page of Google and is calculated based upon how many searches there are a month for a keyword phrase, and how many web pages there are on the internet optimized for the specific keyword phrase. Jaaxy assigns green to keyword phrases the get a relatively high number of monthly searches and not many webpages online optimized for that keyword phrase.).

NOTE: notice many of the keyword phrase results are hidden behind a link that says Get QSR. For each keyword phrase that is related to your seed keyword click that link to reveal the stats for the keyword phrase.

➃ Save ALL the keyword phrases that are color coded green AND have an SEO Score of 90 or higher. These are the money making gems. Save them in order with the keywords phrases with the highest SEO score at the top and progressively lower SEO Score going down. Refer to the images below for clarification. The way you could save them is select the entire row for each keyword with your mouse, copy to clipboard, and then save in notepad.

NOTE: there is a free program called Jaaxy Goldmine Keyword Organizer you can use where you simply copy and paste the entire Jaaxy Keyword list, press a button and the software saves just the keyword phrases with an SEO Score of 90 or higher in order with highest SEO Score at the top. Huge time saver and its free. Jaaxy Goldmine Keyword Organizer.

➄ Repeat steps #4 and #5 for all the seed keywords you found using the Google Keyword Tool.

It is these keyword phrases you are going to make web pages/blog posts about that will bring you traffic and create the affiliate sales.
