I've joined the Affilojetpack program since 2011 and I've not unlocked any niche yet.
This is really disturbing for me, Sunil! You've missed out on three years of growth because of analysis paralysis.
All the niches in AffiloJetpack have a huge amount of money to be made, and most of them are such massive niches that even if you just zero in on a tiny tiny corner of that niche, you'll still do really well.
My own personal opinion (because I also got stuck in this paralysis back when I first started) is that focusing on keywords in the early stages is not productive if you have a tendency to over-analyze. You just get stuck, and you don't do anything for three years :)
What I like to do is look at the affiliate products I'm promoting, look at the problems they solve, think about the kinds of people who would have those problems, and then create content for those people.
I look in forums where people are talking about my topic and see what kinds of people I come across. I read blogs related to my topic and see what sort of topics get discussed quite often.
These are much more constructive uses of my time than poring over keyword data, because I actually get a feel for what my audience needs, and I can focus on providing it.
I only ever look at keyword data once I've zeroed in on some good topics for creating content. I'll go in and see if there are any keywords related to these topics that would be easier pickings than others, and I look to see how much interest there actually is in these topics.
If you find yourself getting stuck on keyword research, don't do it! Look for the problems, and try to understand your audience. Create something they will actually like. Not just half-hearted articles with a few keywords shoved in there.
Put as much effort into creating your content as you put into your keyword research and you'll be golden!
