    Im about to spend hundreds of dollars on SEO and I wanted to make sure these were good stats to spend money on.. I have 7 keywords so far.. Without revealing my niche, I'll attempt to display the keyword stats that I got from Market Samurai. Each Number represents a keyword and the amount of daily traffic, competition, etc(its all labeled) Im not really concerned about adwords and adsense so I wont display those. This will be a content locking site:

    HTML:
    SEO Traffic (Broad)
    167
    137
    250
    18
    40
    14
    18
    
    SEO Traffic (Phrase)
    167
    137
    250
    18
    40
    14
    18
    
    SEO Traffic (Exact)
    75
    33
    91
    18
    4
    10

    44.69135802469136
    24.074074074074076
    35.80246913580247
    15.151515151515152
    19.6969696969697
    
    SEO Comp
    45800
    72000
    3240000
    27000
    58100
    47300
    34000
    
    Lets say hypothetically, my conversion ratio will be around 5% and my offers average $1.00.. Will this site generate decent income or should I find new keywords?

    I would look mainly at the exact match results as they are the most reliable.

    Code:
    SEO Traffic (Exact)
    75
    33
    91
    18
    4
    10
    10
    It all depends on your competition because there are some keywords that you can rank for with on-site SEO alone. If this was the case then these would definitely be a good choice.

    With these stats you will be getting 200-300 visits per month so at a 5% conversion you are looking at $10-$15 per day at best so don't go wild with your budget. You could always make a few pages for these keywords and see where they rank without any SEO if you really do not have any idea about whether or not they are worth it. If they appear in the top 1000 then they might only need a small push to get to the first page.

    Just remember as well that even at rank 1 you will not receive all of the traffic, maybe 70% or something depending on your chosen niche so that might bring the expected traffic and revenue down a bit.

    Hopefully that helps

    If you have any more questions I will do my best at answering them :)

    Like the post above, you want to look at exact, and you aren't going to get 100% of the traffic of the exact either. Phrase is good to look at to, but exact is going to be the guaranteed traffic you're aiming for.

    Also, you want to look at the competition. Do they have all the keywords in title, URL, etc and their PR, age, and backlink. You should be able to determine how hard it is based on those stats.

    if those are daily stats, i guess its seems okay. i wouldnt spend 100s of dollars on it though. i'd only do it if you could relatively easily get to first place

    So do you think I would be able to make more than 50 bucks a day? wait i kind of just figured out the answer dumb question its only about 15 bucks a day.. Damn how is any of this even worth the time and effort? Im trying to make 50 bucks a day

    Ok lets say I want more keywords and I find them and they seem to be low to medium competion... How many keywords is a reasonable amount to have on my site? I am looking at alot of these sites and they have like only 7 or 8... Can I have 20? How much will google recognize on my page, all 20 in the meta tag description? Or is there some sort of special number that people find google recognizes? Because if I can only rank for 8 keywords, this idea is pretty much dead and all my other ideas for that matter because I can only find keywords that are like the ones im mentioning in this thread

    I've got the extact opposite problem as you, seriously. I have so many keywords/projects that it seems overwhelming. If only i had more resources. If you want maybe we can do a joint venture. PM me your IM s/n

    But to answer your question google will recognize as many keywords on your site as long the words on your page and you've done the right seo

    edit: Also you wont make 50/day with that traffic. Maybe like 5$ a week if youre lucky.
