    Hey there.

    So here I am with my new project:

    -I come up with a few keywords

    -IF I'm able to register my primary keyword in the domain and IF first 10 sites have PR<3 and no kws in domain, I decide to go for it

    -I use kw tools to analyze other kws for structuring the website and I set Minimum local and global searches to 1000-1500, looking for interesting long-tail kws and here comes my doubt...

    ...I've read in a lot of discussion, guides, etc that it's better to obtain less than 1.000.000 search results in google or, clearly, will be difficult to compete (apart from the case I've written at point number 2, in which I'll go for it independently from the search results).

    The question is: should I search for quoted kws or not-quoted ones?

    " Quoted " gives exact competition

    In my case the quoted keyword phrase gives around 300.000 results (with low PR pages and just 1 relevant domain name) vs the 13.000.000 (with quite a few high PR pages but still no relevant domain names) of the non-quoted one.

    Does this mean that I'm going to easily rank just when a user quotes the keyword and I'm having no chance with the unquoted one?
    This is something I still can't grasp fully..

    Having exact keyword in domain name is one of the factor to get better ranking in search engines but it is not the "Only Factor", you need to wel optimize your website as well as you need to build quality backlinks in order to acheive top rankings.

    It all depends on your competitors and their strategies if there are some good competitors you will find out it time taken to acheive your goal.

    Surely I wanna analyze the competition and optimize on and off seo, backlinkings, social bookmarking, articles etc...but my doubt was about the keyword search on google...should I put quotes or shouldn't I when I do my research?

    Ok fine, always use quotes when you need to know exactly how many actual competitors you are competiting with for this particular keyword. Google always show you "broad" so always use quotes to know the exact no. of competitors.

    Hope this will help you

    A lot depends on how long tail the keyword is too.
