I’m sure someone has thought of this, and people use this, but I’ve never heard it talked about, so I’ll talk about it
Note: This is a “short guide” for finding guaranteed (or very close to guaranteed) profitable keywords and building profitable websites…
Alright so one of the biggest complaints that many people have when first starting out (and even those that have been in the business a while but just can’t start making money because of keyword research) is that they come up with keywords that just don’t make them money.
Well I want to share something that I would personally do, if I was in this position.
And that’s use examples that you already know are working and making money, right in front of you.
How do you do this?
I want to layout a short little guide for those of you struggling with this, as I think it may help get a lot of you on the right track, at least to start.
I’m going to make this as short as possible, with as much value as possible. I haven’t written a good post in a while bc I’ve been very busy with clients, but I want to roll out this post.
How many of you know about the website Flippa? That’s Flippa.com
This is a website where people sell domains, new websites, established websites, and best of all….duh duh duh….PROFITABLE websites. There’s a reason that people go to Flippa and buy websites, and most of the time that’s because they want to buy websites that are already generating profit\revenue.
The whole idea here is that people are selling websites, which they have created, ranked, and monetized – and are now selling them. Most of these people don’t hide the details of their website, and you can very easily pinpoint profitable keyword and website ideas.
Two tabs that I would use for this in Flippa are the “Just sold” tab, and the “most active” tab.
Just sold tab – this one shows websites that have been sold – a good amount of these already have revenue as that’s what people like buying for the most part on Flippa.
Most active tab – this shows the most active auctions – again, a good amount of these already have revenue, as that’s what people like buying – and this is why these websites will be the most active.
So let’s go through an example.
Lets click on the most active tab…
The THIRD site I see (notice how I barely have to scroll down to find the first one), lets read the headline for this one…
$130 Per Month Passive Income From Adsense & Lead Gen, PR 2, 1st Page Rankings!
Want to know how they are monetizing their site (well duh, they already told us, but what if they didn’t)? Visit the site…go to divorceinnj.net and see what they’re doing. See EXACTLY how they have their site laid out.
Want to know what keywords they’re ranking for to get this income? I can tell you without looking their main keyword is probably divorce in nj….but what if I want to find more?
Go to AHREFS.com and click on the SERPs analysis tab and type in their domain name. Even with the free version you’ll see their top keywords…and the only keyword they’re really even ranking for is divorce in nj.
And BTW, you don’t even have to go after this keyword…what if you find a better one? What about divorce in ca? What about divorce in me? What about divorce in tx? What about divorce in fl? The list goes on with slight variations.
If you’re using different keywords, just use the google keyword tool, compare it to the auctioneers keyword, and make sure it has similar searches (or more or less, depending on what you are looking to do).
You have your keywords. You have your site setup (you can emulate the auctioneers site, or improve on it). You have your blueprint.
Just one thing you want to pay attention to, is that the person is telling the truth about the revenue. Checkout their screen shots, their traffic stats, and anything else they have posted as proof and make your own judgement call. For the most part you can tell pretty easily if the income is real…as they’re going to have to prove the income is real in order to sell the site.
Now, about ethics. Is it wrong to do this? I’m not the judge of that…but one thing i can tell you is that people do have the option to hide\privatize their sites so the general public doesn’t know their domain name, etc.
The only part you have left, is to rank your websites…but as a member of BTF, you already know how to do that.
If you guys have questions about this, just let me know, enjoy…
