    When I chose the niche, I oriented to Google keyword planner. In neighbor thread here on bhw I read one comment where guy said that it is wrong to orient on the competition level on keywordplanner, because it is stats for advertisers. I didn't know it... And I chose to make site in health niche ....now I see there are quite many competitors big portals which describe my niche (my site is about some disease )... My site is ready already and I am trying to add some new info there ... But now i don't know is it make sense ?
    1. I'd like to know is Google keyword planner is useless in order to evaluate competition level? Is there a tool which I can use for checking level of competition?

    2. What should i do ? Develop my site or not waste my time and try to find another niche?

    Doesn't have to be. It all depends on the quality of your content and promotion methods.

    The keyword planner is a good tool to get started as there is no cost incurred when researching or deciding on keywords to target. In fact most keyword research tools are actually use google keyword planner to start generating keywords.

    Try using keyword revealer online, enter your current keyword, then you can analyse keyword competition.
    Else when deciding on a keyword search a range of different related terms, check what other domains are ranked, if there is a similar niche sites chances are its going to be easy to rank.

    Good luck with it!

    Health niche is pretty hard to rank, as many bigger RATS already in there years, is your site a micro niche, or small authority, or authority site?

    IMHO, if a micro niche, you may* got a chance to rank, but only with quality contents, perfect on-page SEO, and damn good cash on link-building, let alone, this keyword must be a long tail and weak competition.( top 10 sites pages)

    But if you aim at an authority and what you said you messed up the planner's competition, then you maybe screwed.

    Paste more infos here, others maybe help you more.


    Good luck

    Terry

    Well if you want to get organic traffic is better to focus on keywords that have low competition.

    It is important to know how many are actually competing for that KW and then i will decide about making content, i mean how good it should be and yeah who are in the top 10 also makes difference.

    Got it. Do you know if competition level is between 40-50% in keyword revealer, is it make sense to promote article by these keywords or it's too high level?
