Most of the bloggers use Long Tail Pro to find great niches. It has been developed by Spencer Haws. It is a full-fledged tool for doing effective keyword research. It helps you ease out the process of finding low competition, high paying keywords.
Many of the brands and pro bloggers use this tool and have ended up with great success.
After searching for the best high paying keywords. It’s time for you to filter out them.
Here are the tips to filter them.
- Prefer buyer intent keywords over normal ones.Visitors who come to your blog with a buying intention are more likely to click on your ads.
- Filter out high competition keywords. You may have chosen low competition keywords at the beginning itself, but make use of tools like SEMrush or Mozbar to accurately determine the keyword competition. Because even the lowest competition keyword may be difficult to rank, depending upon your domain authority.
Here’s my post on how to accurately find the competition of a keyword for your blog.
- Choose the keyword, which has more related terms to it. Related keywords make your blog posts semantically rich.
- Now, write a super-relevant content targeting the keyword.
- Wait for your post to rank and drive targeted traffic.
When you target high paying keywords, Google AdSense shows keyword relevant ads from publishers, who are willing to pay a high amount of money for a single click, on your blog.
Hence more earnings.
SEMrush is one of the best premium tool, which I’ve ever come across. It lets you perfectly find low competition, long tail keywords, high CPC keywords that don’t suck. Additionally, you can look up for all the keywords; your competitor blog post is ranking for. You can also look up for keyword difficulty.
It also comes loaded with a plethora of other features.

SEMrush free version, which you can use up to 5 times a day, can alone be enough for some of the bloggers.
If you are one of the bloggers, who spend more time, researching for effective keywords, competitor analysis, the SEMrush pro plan is something you are looking for.
