    Hey Guys, please see the image below, I bought both of these from two very separate members of the marketplace. Personally, I think they are both a bit.. meh.. or am I wrong here?

    I tend to gauge a keyword on whether I can get into the top 3 easily or not. Bare in mind that these were both advertised as 'super easy' to rank keywords.
    Fortunately, i'm not very new to this but I don't see how I could easily outrank those top 4 results on both keywords with an amazon niche site.

    Which will usually be less authority and fewer links etc. Again, I could totally be wrong and am looking to learn, not flame.

    I made an effort to cover up the terms, not that i'm likely to use them anyway.

    You didn't provide a lot of information. But with the information you provided, I can say that you better can ask for a refund. You never can call this "super easy".

    dont most services here at least give u the kw diff score?
    thats really the only metric a buyer can look at and gauge before purchase (not incl pdp price and volume)

    It's impossible to tell with just the information given above. From my experience, the only KW provider worth a damn is @Jared255

    With these two purchases, they just sent the KW difficulty with the keyword itself 7 - 10 days after purchase.
    These are all subpages by the way, no homepages etc. Figured as much, i'll check out thus Jared guy, any other suggestions?

    These Keywords are medium and no where fit the super-easy category. I give up on amazon keyword sellers after purchasing from different sources. I know every well how to find easy-to-rank keywords. Sometimes out of curiosity I will order one of the easy, zero competition keyword only to have nonsensical report of medium (some times very hard keywords) as EASY. No need for backlinks bla bla bla.

    You can ask the seller for a refund or a replacement.

    The problem most people have with keyword research is that they're relying on tools to do the hard work for them. They pop the keyword into the tool and it returns some score based on the tool's algorithm.

    Guess what? They're using Moz's API to determine that score. Moz is fucking shit. It's 2017 and people are still using Moz? It doesn't really matter how many links Moz tells you a URL has because it's more than likely wrong. Their database is tiny. I don't use these tools, but as far as I'm aware, KwFinder, Keysearch and Keyword Revealer are all using Moz to determine the scores.

    Why does Kwfinder even bother telling you the social shares? The effect social shares have on SEO is minuscule.

    Apologies for the rant, but I think these tools are next to useless. You're better off doing it yourself.

    To answer your question. Based on what I can see, you should ask for a refund. A "super easy keyword" shouldn't have backlinks to the ranking sites in SERPs. If Moz is finding plenty of links to those sites, you're in trouble.

    plug into an ahrefs trial.
    if you see anything in ahrefs in top 10 DR45+ on average, you are fucked.

    cause, you will get stuck in page 2 world..

    It's insane, but as soon as top 10 got "something" of links behind them, they rank and you will have hard time surpassing them without any good links behind your site..

    kind of annoys me on daily basis...

    however, you can always do parasites ;)

    for instant KW difficulty checks, I use kwfinder AND ahrefs top 10 UR/DR stats...

    anything above kwdiff 10 usually is annoying but manable.. anything around 30 will get you stuck in page 2 world for long time..

    however, what seller was that?

    I orderd from 2 in the past. one really provided a easy keyword..
    the other not but re funded with ease..
