Use these 5 SEO tips for competitor research and analysis to reveal niche markets or affiliate market opportunities by triangulating keyword search volume for domains ranked in the top 3 results for keywords with proven commercial intent. Rather than rely on one tool alone, this method uses SEMRush, Compete and Alexa in tandem with related search and common sense to identify niche market opportunities for search engine optimization.

For the sample set and keyword analyzed I used the “weight loss” market and the root phrase “weight loss pills” which is an extremely saturated market to identify alternative less competitive keyword phrases to target based on such a competitive vertical phrase at the root.

There is always money on the table and often, all you need is one major keyword in the top 3 results to reap the rewards of conversion for that phrase. This video will provide a few lean and mean SEO tactics to identify, optimize and conquer phrases that already have a proven track record of success (through assessing the competitors in the top 3 results).
