    I don't really know in which section this post belongs so I will just post here. My question is - how do I do keyword/competition research properly?

    Meaning - let's say I found a new keyphrase - "Best Health Dog". When you type this in google with brackets you get 229 results - pretty good right?

    But when you type in the same phrase without brackets, you get 61 million results - not so good.

    Now the question is - normal people never usually search with brackets and the first pages that appear on the keyphrase search without brackets are very high PR and with lots of backlinks. So - who am I actually competing with? If I outrank on the brackets search, does it mean I will also outrank on the no brackets search?

    Please share your knowledge on this subject.

    I'm not sure how that would work out. But, Google's adword keyword tool offers 4 different types of results for keyword searches. Each type gives completely different results. When you know how to use it, you can uncover some really great keywords.

    You can get a free tutorial with screenshots of how it works at http://internetincomeguide.com/

    I don't think you are doing keyword research properly. You are simply searching for "supply" instead of "demand"..

    Use Google's external keyword tool for proper research.. And from what I've know, age of domain + backlinks is the most important thing to rank high.. :)

    Yes, when you target a keyphrase you are also targeting the keywords that make that phrase. Google will give preference to the keyphrase over pages containing individual keywords.

    Use Seoquake plugin for Firefox and check, the first page that you get on top of Google's SERP has PR 0. while the url with a PR4 is on the 7th position because it does not contains the keyphrase you are searching for.
