Step 1. Brainstorm A List Of Keywords:
Then select your top 10 favorite keywords from this list.
TIP: Use Clickbank Marketplace to come up with ideas (, then select "Marketplace" at the top)

Step 2. Search For Opportunity With AdAssault Or Search Engines (Bing, Google, Yahoo)
Record the best websites that have affiliate ads running on them below:

     Keyword/Site:          Affiliate Ads? [Yes] or [No]                                                    Tips
                                                           If you don't find any ads with AdAssault, then look at Google or Yahoo or Bing.
                                                           If you still don't find any ads, label it as "None"
                                                           Look at the "status bar" of your browser for plenty of redirect links.
                                                           Look at the URL box. Look for pieces of code like: "affid" or "aid" or "ref" or "CID"
                                                           Don't bother with corporate advertisements - ignore them.
                                                           If no good ads, brainstorm new ones or use some from Step 1 again.
                                                           Persistence is key. Finding affiliates is the most important part!
