    Hello All,

    I'm going to be following bluematter's excellent and generous thread about building a $100/day Adsense site.


    Currently:


    I'm researching keywords and having difficulty.

    Bluematter says the keyword must match most of these requirements:

    After 4-5 hours of searching using various tools including the trial version of Long Tail Pro, I'm not able to find anything that hits all of the requirements. I do have 6 that are close contenders though. Following I will post their compliance with respect to bluematter's criteria, along with a couple other Longtail metrics.

    I don't want to post actual infographics for obvious reasons, so I'll do my best to lay this out in a way that makes sense. Will any of these work?


    *** Assume All Keywords Have High Adword Competition ***


    Option A

    Length: 4
    CPC: $1.79
    Monthly Local Searches (avg): 9,850
    Seasonal/ Consistent: 6,000 - 14,000/ month
    Sites in top 10 with exact match keyword: 5ish
    At least 2 domains in top 10 are under 2 years old: There is one that's 1.3, two that are 2, and two that are 2.5.
    At least 3 sites in top 10 with pr under 4: 3 comply, 6 have "No PR". Though I think that may be intentional.
    Sites in top 10 with mozRank ≤ 4: 2
    Sites in top 10 with domain authority ≤ 35: 4


    Option B

    Length: 3
    CPC: $10.80
    Monthly Local Searches (avg): 5,500
    Seasonal/ Consistent: 2,500 - 8,100/ month
    Sites in top 10 with exact match keyword: 2
    At least 2 domains in top 10 are under 2 years old: There is one that's 1.8, the rest are between 4 - 18.
    At least 3 sites in top 10 with pr under 4: 5 comply, 2 have "no PR".
    Sites in top 10 with mozRank ≤ 4: 3
    Sites in top 10 with domain authority ≤ 35: 2. The rest are 75+.


    Option C

    Length: 2
    CPC: $2.41
    Monthly Local Searches (avg): 73,000
    Seasonal/ Consistent: 50,000 - 100,000/ month
    Sites in top 10 with exact match keyword: 6ish
    At least 2 domains in top 10 are under 2 years old: One that's 1.3, one 2.5.
    At least 3 sites in top 10 with pr under 4: 4 comply, 4 "no PR".
    Sites in top 10 with mozRank ≤ 4: 3
    Sites in top 10 with domain authority ≤ 35: 2


    Option D

    CPC: $1.15
    Monthly Local Searches (avg): 14,000
    Seasonal/ Consistent: 9,500 - 18,000/ month
    Sites in top 10 with exact match keyword: 8
    At least 2 domains in top 10 are under 2 years old: One is 1 year old, the rest are 6 - 16.
    At least 3 sites in top 10 with pr under 4: 7 comply, 2 have "No PR".
    Sites in top 10 with mozRank ≤ 4: 5
    Sites in top 10 with domain authority ≤ 35: 2


    Option E

    Length: 3
    CPC: $1.00
    Monthly Local Searches (avg): 10,000
    Seasonal/ Consistent: 6,500 - 15,000/ month
    Sites in top 10 with exact match keyword: 5ish
    At least 2 domains in top 10 are under 2 years old: There is one that's 0.8, the rest are 6 - 18.
    At least 3 sites in top 10 with pr under 4: 5 comply, 3 have "No PR".
    Sites in top 10 with mozRank ≤ 4: 6
    Sites in top 10 with domain authority ≤ 35: 2


    Option F


    Length: 3
    CPC: $1.57
    Monthly Local Searches (avg): 9,900
    Seasonal/ Consistent: 6,500 - 12,000/ month
    Sites in top 10 with exact match keyword: 6ish
    At least 2 domains in top 10 are under 2 years old: One is 1.8, one is 5, then the rest are in the teens.
    At least 3 sites in top 10 with pr under 4: 5 comply, 4 have "No PR".
    Sites in top 10 with mozRank ≤ 4: 4
    Sites in top 10 with domain authority ≤ 35: 0

    I'd go with option B and E if you are new to SEO. High adwords competition isn't really relevant, it can only serve as an indication to do more research first.
    Just remember that, as a rule of thumb, the longer it takes to rank a website, the longer the ranking sticks (although big G makes the weirdest jumps).

    If I were you, I'd start up 2-3 sites and apply mostly the same (proven) methods found on this forum, have patience and work harder on the sites that get more traffic.
    Just make sure you have months of patience ;-)

    I would go for option C because there is high search volume and probably many secondary long tail keywords... Good Luck!

    Thanks!

    Ok, so maybe I should dig deeper on the high competition keywords. If I find an extrapolation with far more favorable competition stats, but is is medium competition, I'll know to go for it.

    I'm planning on doing 2-3 to see what happens. If in 6 months even one of them is making $100/day, I'll be very pleased.

    Thanks! Actually, Option A is a secondary long tail from Option C.

    A little update:

    Spoke with bluematter via skype (very nice guy) and he advised me that option C is a good way to go.

    Here's a screencap of stats from LongTail Pro. Untitled.jpg


    Unfortunately this weekend has been very hectic with my "survival work". I'm an actor, and bartend/cater for money. Weekend's are busy. Will make time to dedicate to implementing the next step in the next few days.
