Step 1: Setting Up LowFruits

Getting started with LowFruits.io is fairly straightforward and is representative of how easy the whole tool is to use. 

Start by heading to the LowFruits.io Home Page and clicking “Get started for Free”.

Next, you will come to the registration page.

You can either sign in with Google or just fill out the few details shown above. Don’t worry, no credit card is required to sign up.

As soon as you click “Register” and verify your email, you will enter your main keyword research interface.

Step 2: Keyword Searching Options

Now it’s time to enter a seed keyword and generate a list of the best keyword opportunities to target - your low-hanging fruit keywords, or “weak spots” you can take advantage of. 

However, there are a couple of things to be aware of before hitting search.

Firstly, LowFruits provide a couple of helpful tips that you should follow to generate the best content ideas:

These tips are not hard and fast rules that you have to follow, but they can definitely help you improve your seed keyword searches. 

Advanced Keyword Filtering

The advanced filtering options provided by LowFruits are a great way to avoid results that are too competitive or irrelevant.

For this example, we will assume that you have a new website that has not yet built up any authority. Therefore, you should target keywords with a DA below 20 (if your website is more established and has higher authority, you can also target keywords with higher DA).

All you have to do is scroll down past the six tips and click on the “Advanced Options” dropdown. 

When you click on the “Advanced Options” you will receive this dropdown menu:

First, select your country and language. If your website targets a global audience you will want to select “United States” and “English”. This is because these keywords are the most universal and convert well globally.

Target Low DA Websites

Next, select Max DA. Do not skip this step! It’s the easiest way to quickly filter out keywords that are too competitive and hard to rank for right now. 

You should aim to target keywords where the websites that are currently ranking have roughly equal, or lower, DA than your site. If your website has very low or no DA, you can set this metric to 20. 

Alternatively, you can simply enter your domain and LowFruits will automatically find the keyword opportunities that you can easily rank for.

Don’t worry, once you set your filters, LowFruits will automatically analyze all the websites that are currently ranking on the first page for your target keyword. You don’t have to do any manual work here! 

Target Weak Domains

The next filter isn’t too important and you may choose to skip this step, but it can be a good way to target keywords where you have identified “weak competition”. 

What do we mean by weak competition? 

This could include websites that are:

  • Ranking with content that is largely irrelevant to your niche 
  • Websites that appear spammy (lots of low-quality backlinks) 
  • Plagiarized (duplicate, or scraped content) 
  • Generally unsafe (lack of SSL certificates) 

It may be tricky to find keywords where these websites are ranking, so don’t bother spending a lot of time finding these websites to target.

Exclude Words

Finally, LowFruits has an “Exclude Words” option. This is a good way to eliminate keywords that you don’t want to generate content for. There are a few categories here that we would recommend always excluding:

  • Existing forums (maybe use a different term)
  • Location-specific terms
  • Dates/years
Existing Forums

We always exclude online forums such as “Reddit, Quora, Forum, Discussion”. This is pretty self-explanatory, your goal is to create a high-quality blog post and not add content to an online discussion on an existing forum

These are also navigational keywords which means that a person searching for a keyword like “cryptocurrency trends reddit” wants to visit a specific website, in this case, a forum on Reddit about cryptocurrency, and not your blog post.

Location Specific Terms

Unless you are specifically targeting local SEO, you can also exclude words like “near me” and “countries”. In this case, these keywords are too specific to start with and the searcher will typically be looking for a very specific and location-dependent service. 

Dates/Years

We recommend excluding years (e.g. best kitchen appliances 2018, how to turn off a Panasonic TV 2019). These keywords have virtually zero search volume, and even targeting a keyword with the current year isn’t recommended. 

Your goal should be to generate evergreen content that will serve your readers both now and in the future.

Step 3: Find High Potential Keywords and SEO Weak Spots

Now that you understand how to optimize your keyword list by filtering out negative results, it’s time to perform your first keyword search.

For this guide, we will assume that you have a new website about household technology and your goal is to create a successful affiliate website that ranks for profitable keywords. 

Since your website is new, ranking well for keywords like “best laptops” and “best phones” is unrealistic. So, we will need to target more specific, and related long-tail keywords to succeed.

Luckily, LowFruits lets you use wildcard operators (using “*”) to find hidden gems in your niche. For example, entering “best laptops for *” will reveal long-tail keywords beginning with “best laptops for”.

We know that laptops serve different purposes for different people, so using the above search will help us find long-tail keywords such as:

  • “Best laptops for work”
  • “Best laptops for gaming”
  • “Best laptops for programming”
  • “Best laptops for graphic design”

All of these keywords will be much less competitive, and easier for us to rank for. 

Note: Even though these keywords will have less search volume individually, we can target more of them to cover more volume in total. Beyond this, long-tail keywords will rank for many more terms than just the exact match. This will rapidly compound your total search volume (we’ll cover this more in the next section). 

Our search has yielded over 280 keywords that we are able to check out:

The next stage is to perform a SERP extract on some of the keywords that would make great content ideas for your website. 

SEO is a numbers game - so extract as many keywords as you would like here to find the most potential winners at once. This is also an easy way to quickly fill out your content calendar.

Ideally, you will build up a list of at least 10 keywords and make a note of these in your notepad or in a spreadsheet. This will allow you to fill out your content calendar several weeks in advance. 

We recommend taking the extra time to do this as it means you can perform all of your keyword research in one go, another advantage is that you will still be in “keyword research mode”.

In our case, we extracted three uber-relevant keywords to give you an idea and actionable example about what the SERP extract report in LowFruits actually means.

Does Search Volume Matter?

You will notice a common theme very quickly when you start running SERP extracts - keywords with higher volumes typically have fewer, or no, weak spots. This makes sense, the keywords that get searched the most tend to be more competitive.

However, search volume does not equal potential traffic. It’s entirely possible (common even) for a keyword with a “low” search volume to receive a solid amount of traffic.

Take the keyword “best laptops for instructional designers” - this keyword only receives 30 searches a month, however, the article ranking number 1 will inevitably receive much more traffic than this. 

This is for a very simple reason: people are different and they search for information differently. An interview with senior Google employee, Ben Gomes, led to the finding that 16-20% of daily Google searches have never been searched before. 

In other words, when you create content around a keyword, that doesn’t mean you will only rank for that exact search, you will also rank for many similar searches. For example, creating content on the keyword “best laptops for instructional designers” will often also lead to ranking well for extremely similar keywords, such as:

  • Top laptops for instructional designers
  • Best laptops instructional designers
  • Instructional designer's best laptops
  • Best laptops for instructional designers 2022
  • Best laptops for instructional designers ever

So, does search volume matter?

Yes and no. Search volume is a good indicator of general interest in a keyword, however, you shouldn’t look at a low search volume keyword and assume creating content for it is a waste of time.

Low-volume keywords with “weak spots” often mean better rankings and more relevant traffic, helping to improve the overall SEO-related metrics of your content, and your website overall.

How To Find SEO Weak Spots

LowFruits directly points out the best keywords to target by highlighting keywords with “weak spots”.

The apples in the SERP extract report indicate these weak spots: 

  • The green apple shows that a website with a domain authority that is less than the predefined rating (DA 20) is ranking on the first page for the keyword. 
  • The blue apple means that a forum or discussion (typically on Reddit or Quora) is also ranking on the first page. This is a good indicator that there are not dedicated pages or posts targeting this keyword. However, if lots of forums are ranking on page 1, it’s probably better to avoid creating content for that keyword because it suggests many people are looking for forums.

The more weak spots that a keyword has the better the opportunity is for you. 

LowFruits is also really good at identifying keywords that you should probably avoid. Your first instinct may have been that the keyword “best laptops for architecture students” is fairly niche and would be an easy keyword to rank for. 

However, the analysis conducted by LowFruits shows that this isn’t the case. The lack of “weak spots” is a clear signal that indicates that this keyword is probably too competitive, at least for a newly established or low-authority website.

Picking our Target Keywords

Given the LowFruits analysis, we are left with two options for our next article. Both of these keywords are good options as they have multiple weak spots, so why not target both?

Creating two separate articles using an AI article generator couldn’t be easier. Therefore you don’t need to be too selective about the keywords you choose and can create more targeted content overall. The higher your content output, the more keywords you will rank for, and eventually, this will mean significantly more traffic.

Now that you have decided to use both (or more) keywords, you have come to the most important stage of the SEO content production process: creating your content. 

Traditionally this has always been the most difficult and time-consuming step of producing SEO content. Fortunately, Article Forge’s AI-powered article generator is able to generate 1,500+ words of unique content with a single click.

Step 4: Use AI To Automatically Generate Articles

Creating content couldn’t be any easier when you are using AI writing software, it’s literally a machine that writes for you.

All you need to do is head over to the New Article Page in Article Forge and enter each of the keywords you identified in LowFruits. Only do one at a time though. Your interface will now look like this:

One of Article Forge’s unique abilities is that it automatically includes relevant section headings in longer articles. 

You can also decide to pick your own section headings, but this is completely optional, and Article Forge does a great job of writing section headings for you.

Using Article Forge is a highly efficient step of the content production process. Now, you can perform keyword research in bulk to find the best content ideas that you can turn into publishable content using AI with less than 15 seconds of work.

You can keep going through your keyword list and generating content this way, or to improve your efficiency further you can use our Bulk Article Generator.

Step 5: Generate Content At Scale With Article Forge

If you were impressed with the last step, then our Bulk Article Generator will blow your mind. Simply, the bulk generator lets you produce content for multiple keywords at once. 

This means that you can enter an entire list of keywords from LowFruits and turn them all into publishable articles in a single click.

To do this, simply return to the New Article Page and click on “Switch To Bulk Article Generator”. Now, it’s time to enter your keywords, just like before, all you need to do is enter the keywords you have already identified as part of your keyword research. Make sure to enter all your keywords on a new line like this:

Finally, scroll down and click “Create New Article” and Article Forge will generate five completely separate and unique articles for you all at once.
