Doug Cunnington of the Niche Site Project came up with a formula that has proven time and time again to result in success. The Keyword Golden Ratio is a data-driven way to find those keywords and keyword phrases that are considered underserved on the internet.
When finding the KGR, you simply divide the number of Google results that have the keyword phrase included in the title by the local monthly search volume.
You are looking for a local monthly search volume of under 250. This means that when the KGR is less than 0.25, it is entirely possible for your site to rank in the top 10 when the page is indexed.
When you have search volumes that surpass 250, they won’t rank as quickly as the lower search volume keywords.
These are the phrases people in search engines use when they are looking for a specific product to purchase. At this stage of the search, the person already has an idea of what they want and are ready to purchase the item.
You can use different keyword tools to generate a list of keywords that are relevant to your industry. You can also search for competitor keywords. Once you have compiled this list, you can begin looking at the buyer’s intent.
Importance of Keyword Research for Affiliate Marketing
One of the biggest advantages of keyword research is gaining traffic and site visibility on Google. Keyword research also provides you with valuable insight into consumer tastes, different affiliate marketing styles, as well as tells you which keywords are changing so you can keep up.
So why use KGR keywords? Simple… they get results quick! Don’t take our word for it though; take a look at how some of our clients have seen success with this strategy. Below are some screenshots showing the massive jumps in keyword rankings from a few of our clients that focused on the KGR strategy.
