How to Use LongTail Pro for the Best SEO & SEM Keyword Research? [S1E02]

Ok, now when we have an idea what products sell let’s research what to write about. The main tool we will use will be LongTail Pro.

The first thing we need to do is open sheet S1E02 – Keyword Research in the spreadsheet (Download Spreadsheet). On the top you can see this:

Keyword Research - 5 Departments and 5 Product Groups
5 Departments With 5 Product Groups

There are 5 Amazon departments with 5 product groups. These fields are auto-filled based on the data from the previous episode.

Only the departments with the best potential are selected. Also, only product groups with the best potential are selected.

 

How to do SEO & SEM keyword research with LongTail Pro? This lesson will show you the process to follow to find rankable keywords in a competitive niche.

 

First Decision, Select Department

Now we need to make the first decision. We need to pick one department.

 

Ask yourself?

1. What department do you like the most?

2. Also what product groups do you like the most?

3. What department is familiar to you?

4. Would you like to learn more about it?

 

Based on those questions my choice for the department is Pet Supplies and for the product group it’s “dog food”. So now I will make a thorough in-depth keyword research of product group “dog food“.

 

Note: If we don’t find enough good keywords we will research the next product group in Pet Supplies department and it’s “dog training”.

2nd Note: Another reason to research next product group (“dog training“) is if we in the future cover all the topics from the first product group (“dog food“). Then we just select the next best product group do our research and cover that topic. And then repeat this again until you cover the whole department. It will probably be a few years before you cover the whole department.

 

How do you start?

1.  Open LongTail Pro and create the new project.

I will name my project E2 – Dog Food.

2. Select the option “Google AdWords Suggestions“.

3. Type 50 in field “Suggestions per keyword“.

4. Then we will enter hundreds of keywords in the field “Seed Keywords“.

What to Do Next

Now when we have data we need to analyze.

 

We need to focus on 2 things:

1. How many keywords with Avg. KC less than 25 and Volume more than 50 are there?

2. Can you write helpful valuable articles for those keywords?

 

To find those numbers you can use Long Tail Pro’s Filter option.

Keyword Research - Long Tail Pro Filter Option

Keyword Research - Long Tail Pro Filter Option Settings
Long Tail Pro Filter Option Settings

Now you only see keywords that meet our criteria.

 

You need to analyze only those keywords and see can you write 100 helpful, valuable articles based on those keywords.

Just quickly glance over those filtered keywords and quickly think about each keyword “Would article based on this keyword make sense?

 

Repeat or Move On

If you can’t find 100 potential article ideas you will need to repeat this whole Keyword Research process for next product category. In my case, it would be “dog training“.

 

If you, on the other hand, can find 100 or more potential article ideas move on to the next episode.
