I'm looking for low comp keywords in Ahrefs and it shows them as 0-5 KD out of 100 so they should be low - no comp but when i dig in to the top 10 sites they mostly have a monster domain rating of 60-100 and shit loads of backlinks and they are large aged sites.

How can that be a competition score of 1-5 super low comp? The page authority or url rating as Ahrefs call it for that page is quite low (10-30) but won't they still take some beating if they have a large domain rating because internal linking will help power those pages up?

Bit confused now any advice would be largely appreciated please, I don't want to screw up this part or I will be up against it before I even get started.

Please help me understand why Ahrefs gives me these super low difficulties.
 
me too confused with ahref keyword score. It show how many links need to rank as the KD.
Starting to think it’s best to use something more simple like keyword revealer or moz for keyword research and use ahrefs for checking the top 10’s backlink profile and manually checking there content and on page.

ahrefs is awesome for generating keyword ideas but not for the metrics
 
Ahrefs is not the tool for keyword research - you’d better use longtailpro or sth like that
 
Ahref KD system is not easy to understand.
Like you said, many keywords shows low KD but when you check the competitors, you will see huge websites.
But if these top competitors are parasites or forums then surely you have an opportunity to grab a spot on top 10.
To be honest, this keyword research part needs some practises because even Keyword Revealer and LTP is not that accurate.
Keep researching and surely you will feel comfortable and confident when you find the right keywords.

Don't just ever rely on one tool mate.
