    I have a found a keyword to base a site on.

    Keyword is 9 letters long.

    My domain name will be KEYWORD.US or KEYWORD.WS? What is better for what is left?

    when you google 'keyword' (no quotes) - 359,000 competition
    "keyword" (with quotes) - 719,000 competition
    intext:"keyword" - 240,000 competition
    [keyword] (IDK, google keyword tool uses this) - 359,000

    Over 151+ long tail keywords

    Keyword Tool:

    Broad: GLOBAL 1,220,000 Searches
    Phrase: GLOBAL 823,000 Searches
    Exact: GLOBAL 673,000 Searches


    I plan on purchasing 2000 Manual Directory Submit, along with Social Bookmarking Submits (and possibly some StumbleUdon/Piqqus ), Article Marketing and some blog commenting. Also, link exchanges and topsites!

    Do I basically have the number one spot? and if I don't what more could I do to definitely get it.

    When submitting the url to anything and as my link should I 301 redirect http://www.KEYWORD.ws (or .us) to http://KEYWORD.KEYWORD.ws/KEYWORD/ as a way to show that my domain is super keyword rich? or just do either the subdomain or subfolder...? Whats the best?

    Thanks,

    rnc505

    Also, with this kind of organic traffic will Adsense succeed? Thanks

    If you want "lots of keywords", i think i would rather use a meta description and add the keywords there (too), since those will appear on the search results.

    I know that you're being helpful, but obviously I'd use meta-tags and you didn't answer any of my questions....

    Hi mate, quick point you may have missed, if I was in your shoes, I would also start registering web 2.0 properties for that keyword. This will be in addition to what you have already stated.

    There are never any guarantees, you just have to try your luck. Personally I never focus on just one niche. There are always factors that you can't control or anticipate.

    Make your best guess of what the low competition / high traffic niches are. Adwords is notoriously unreliable, and you should only pay attention to exact mode with your [keyword] written like this. A keyword should have 5,000 searches/month on exact mode before I will pursue it.

    My personal choice for checking out competition is using allintitle:keyword. But more importantly, you need to use backlinkwatch.com to check out the backlinks of the top 10 sites for your keyword.

    If they have a lot of backlinks, with the keyword in the anchor text, you may have a tough time ranking. In the end, it doesn't matter if there are only 10 competing sites - if they've all got 100,000 backlinks (and there are indeed niches where this is the case) then you're just not going to succeed.

    SO, I would spend more time checking out the top 10 and seeing if you can best them. If you can't, move on.

    p.s. the real backlink power is in comment spam and article marketing, I wouldn't focus so much on social bookmarking, and not at-all on directories. You could make an attempt at wider domination by making a linkwheel, they are quite effective if you choose your niche well.

    Good luck.

    I would personnal go for .us. However after creating a number of link wheels, my Squidoo page ranked higher then my .com site so I changed a few things and started generating sales from the squidoo page as well as my main site.

    Makes sense doesnt it, allow sales to come from the best performing site, your main one or your web 2.0 sites, doesnt matter, as long as the sales come in.
