Keyword Saturation and Niche Saturation are Myths

It is true that niche sat­u­ra­tion and key­word sat­u­ra­tion are myths, and to make money online you should under­stand why?

Key­word sat­u­ra­tion is a myth because there are so many key­words used for searches that are over­looked and not used. Niche sat­u­ra­tion is a myth because there are so many places and so many ways to find micro niche mar­kets, niches within niches that are over­looked and not uti­lized by main­stream affil­i­ate marketers.

Niche mar­ket­ing is a very impor­tant aspect of affil­i­ate mar­ket­ing and Inter­net mar­ket­ing, and it is where so many new mar­keters fail.

Some call niches within niches, sub niches, but most Inter­net mar­keters refer to these types of niches as micro niches.

Micro niches are sim­ply tak­ing a seg­ment or a small part of a broader or gen­eral niche, topic, prod­uct, or mar­ket­place, and focus­ing on it. An exam­ple that we have used is the tat­too niche.

Tat­toos are a broad niche within the gen­eral niche of body art and body adorn­ment, and spe­cific types of tat­toos are micro niches. The more spe­cific and spe­cial­ized a micro niche is will usu­ally mean the audi­ence, cus­tomer base, and inter­est group will be smaller, and more tar­geted. It will also mean that the traf­fic that it receives will be smaller and more targeted.

  • Gen­eral Niche: Body adornment
  • Broad Niche: Tattoos
  • Niche or Micro Niche: Ankle tattoos
  • Micro Niche: Chi­nese ankle tattoos
  • Micro Niche: Female Chi­nese ankle tattoos
  • Micro Niche: Girl’s Chi­nese dragon ankle tattoos

Hav­ing a smaller audi­ence can be good when the audi­ence is pri­mar­ily made up of buy­ers, peo­ple that are ready to make a pur­chase rather than sight­seers and infor­ma­tion seekers.

Niche sat­u­ra­tion is a myth when you con­sider how many micro niche mar­kets are avail­able for affil­i­ate mar­ket­ing. It is obvi­ous that there are mul­ti­ple niche mar­kets avail­able to enter and exploit to your advantage.

To make money online with micro niches you need to find a prof­itable micro niche, get traf­fic to it, and cap­i­tal­ize on that traffic. 

First, you have to make sure that there are enough peo­ple search­ing for the micro niche that you want to enter. This can be done using search engines, and Google is the most pop­u­lar, so it is often the best choice for doing your research.

You can check your micro niche pop­u­lar­ity by using stan­dard searches and in-depth searches, and we have cov­ered how to do these in pre­vi­ous posts. Your inves­ti­ga­tion should include both pop­u­lar­ity of searches and find­ing out how much com­pe­ti­tion there is already online for the key­words that will direct peo­ple to your micro niche.

You can find out how many arti­cles have been writ­ten about your par­tic­u­lar niche tar­get, and if the arti­cles con­tain the key­words that you have cho­sen to use for your micro niche. These are the key­words that you have already found by using key­word tools, either free ones or paid tools, it is entirely up to you.

A tremen­dous amount of arti­cles can mean niche sat­u­ra­tion and that it might be too com­pet­i­tive, but it can also mean that it is a pop­u­lar niche mar­ket, and there is money to be made. Many pop­u­lar micro niche mar­kets have plenty of room for more affil­i­ate mar­keters, espe­cially if there are many key­words that are not being used by the competition.

Key­word sat­u­ra­tion is a myth because there are so many key­words that are not being used.

Pick­ing the right key­words will be one of the most impor­tant steps in your micro niche mar­ket­ing process. The key­words that you choose to tar­get will play a very impor­tant role in deter­min­ing if you will make money online or not.

Pick key­words that have less search results but enough to guar­an­tee tar­geted traffic.

Try to focus on key­words that have traf­fic but less search results. The amount of traf­fic to tar­get varies from one niche to another and from one affil­i­ate mar­keter to another, but you need traf­fic, so the bare min­i­mum should be 300 searches and the max­i­mum can be set at 900, 10,000 or 30,000. It all depends on how big your com­pe­ti­tion is, and how con­fi­dent you feel.

If you are writ­ing ads then your key­words need to be placed within your ads. If you are writ­ing arti­cles or posts then you need to place your key­words within the con­tent and the titles. We have cov­ered this in prior posts, and will con­tinue to expound upon it in future posts.

Key­word sat­u­ra­tion and niche sat­u­ra­tion are myths, and if you really want to suc­ceed in affil­i­ate mar­ket­ing then you can turn these myths into prof­itable ways to make money online.

Do your research and make sure that you have a micro niche mar­ket that con­tains buy­ers that you can reach. These are buy­ers that are being swal­lowed up by a com­pe­ti­tion that is tar­get­ing broad and gen­eral niche top­ics and audi­ences. You can claim these buy­ers for your own by using the spe­cific key­words that they are inter­ested in instead of key­words that are too general.

I hope that this helps you to see that key­word sat­u­ra­tion and niche sat­u­ra­tion are myths and that there are plenty of micro niche mar­kets still avail­able for you to make money online.

Affil­i­ate mar­ket­ing can be fun and a prof­itable way to make money online.

There are so many ways to mar­ket affil­i­ate prod­ucts and micro niche mar­ket­ing is one of the best approaches for any­one. Niche sat­u­ra­tion and key­word sat­u­ra­tion may be hap­pen­ing in the gen­eral and broad niche top­ics but not in the micro niche markets.
