Finding Keywords that Bring Results & Traffic
The days of creating unique pages ranking for little tiny keywords to rank has left us a few years ago, but that’s ok. It just means we have to combine a lot of these keywords into one article and try to serve the users intent correctly. You have a lot of options out there for keyword research, but Ahrefs is most defiantly King. They are by far one of the most powerful SEO tools out there you can have. Even if you are an expert in the field, you are writing on. Getting that snowball rolling down the mountain, and finding those super easy keywords are motivating victories. Start with the easy wins, and then work towards those bigger volume keywords.
What we are going to do today is search for millions of keywords related to our topic. Generating such a large list will help us have some decent results when we filter those results down. We want keywords with little search results and more than three words. Long tail’s with little results generally will be super easy for you to rank for. The problem is just the long tail keywords are usually low volume, but you will see how to get around that.
You will find the search feature on the keyword explorer main page. Ahrefs allows you to enter in multiple keywords and phrases into the search, and it’s really helpful feature. We want to collect a lot of results because our final list will be pretty small.
Here are some of the low result searches that came up after filtering out any keyword that had a Google search result of over 500,000. The keywords that are sticking out to me on this are:
CPA networks for Beginners
CPA networks that pay weekly
CPA networks for newbies
CPA network reviews.
What you could do with this is write a review article on the top 5 CPA networks. Include if they are beginner/newbie friendly, what kind of payment terms they have, what other people think of them, offer selection, Ect etc etc.
Rather than writing one post about networks that pay weekly, and another that list of newbie friendly ones. Why not try to serve as much as the user intent as possible? Giving the person who is searching for CPA networks access to all the frequently asked questions about them for newbies.
We can take the one keyword that looks rankable and expand upon that as well. When we search for more related keywords on “CPA networks for newbies”. Even on this short list, we can see its pulling more results of beginner questions about networks. These are all super low result page keywords, that shouldn’t take a ton of effort to rank for. Writing a valuable article that gives legitimate advice will probably cause you to rank for all those keywords.
If we break down the phase even more to just CPA network, and filter the results down. We can find even more topics to write about in this article if we are unsure of what people are searching for. All these little keywords have search volume behind them, and each long tail has about a billion variations of what it could be. These search tools can’t gather everything, but they can get semi close and show us trends in the data.
So we started with one Keyword – CPA Networks for Newbies – Volume of 20. It looks like it will be more like 1,000+ Impressions a month on that article if you write a large enough one. If the low volume scared you away from the keyword, perhaps the additional keywords you would also rank will change your mind. This is why topic research is so powerful because the questions are so related to the user original internet in the first place. The data is showing that people who search for that CPA networks, normally will search for these other phrases while in that learning stage.

Another ninja trick you can do is looking at ranked keywords of other similar websites. If we look at these larger sites, we can work with a larger set of organic keywords. If you can find other websites with a similar DA of the site you are running, in a perfect world you can mimic their backlinks and steal easy to rank for keywords from them
