Reviews are going to play a big role in your online business.
People looking to shop or for an opportunity to earn money online typically start a search with broad terms (e.g. which affiliate training platform is the best or, how do I make money online).
If they come across a “product x”, they may not accept the credibility of that review right away, so they research that product further.
This makes them gain more product knowledge or awareness.
How do People go about their Searches with Google?
Here are some examples (x replaces the name of the product):
– product_x scam
– is product_x scam
– is product_x a scam
– product_x legit
– is product x legit
– does product_x work
– product_x review
– product_x reviews
– does product_x produce results
– product_x complaints
Do this research for all your reviews. And while writing them, you could use one of the product-related keywords in the title, another one at the beginning, others as sub categories and in the anchor text and yet another one placed at the end of the article.
Don’t forget to Google instant it as well as use the alphabet soup technique on the product which will all supply you product related keywords.
