In episode 116 of our weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if it is possible to make profits for Google-suggested long tail keywords with low search volume.

The exact question was:

Hi guys. I follow your HDHOs for a few weeks now and I love your content, thanks for the valuable info. I watched Bradley's KW research videos recommended in the previous HDHO and the info is great again, thanks.

My question: when I used this approach for affiliate KW research, the long-tail keywords I found in the end with this process didn't really have any search volume showing up in GKPlanner data (or very little), although they were extracted from google suggest.

So what's the point in going after such keywords if I can't get any traffic from them… or what am I missing here…?
In other words: do you think it's possible to make profits with affiliate sites, optimizing blog pages/posts for google suggested type long-tail keywords, or I'm just wasting my time?
