    It's been a while since I've tried out IM. Last I was aware everyone used PageRank for determining how saturated a niche is for Google results.
    Now that PRs algorithm isn't updated, and everyone uses Moz Domain and Page Authority. What is a good number to see for the top Google results?

    For example if a keywords first result was an article with 46 PA and 68 DA, would it take a lot of effort for me to build my website to pass that?
    I'm very confused as these keywords show "Low Competition" on Google but then show high numbers with Moz.
    I apologize if this is asked a lot... I am terrible at searching :(

    First, but low competition on google. If you are searching on keyword planner it means low competition for advertisers since keyword tool is for advertisers. Also, DA should not matter a lot, the PA matters it shows the authority for the page. Pa 30+ is hard to pass, but there are ways for pa 1 pages to outrank. Mostly try to stay away from 30+ pa

    @whiteblackseo IMO you are giving too much importance to this moz's metric which can be easily manipulated with a simple trackback blast.
    OP i would rather go through the backlink profile of the competitors' to get the better picture of the link quality and then will decide a/c to my budget that i can outrank them by getting those links. Rather than using metrics like PA or DA.

    Thanks for the information.

    One more question: What is the best way to utilize long-tail keywords? I'm confused as for example searching 'how to grow a vegetable garden'. Google just comes up with the same #1 result being a high PA page with 'grow a garden' as its only text.

    I also check the TF and CF as well. Just check everything and make sure you have the ability to outrank them. Don't fight with authority pages, you will have a hard time unless you had a huge budget.
