    Hi friends! I will want start authority site, but stuck for step choose niche. I can't understand criterias for choose keywords.


    How I do this now:
    1) Find kw1 with 30000+ searches
    2) Find relevant kw for kw1 with 1000 - 10000 searches
    3) Check kw in MOZ for PA and backlink


    Question:
    1) What value PA and quantity backlink, say about low competition?
    2) What criteria has to pay attention?


    It would be great to get more advice on choosing a niche for authority site.


    Thanks.

    Start with a smaller site.

    After that you will know what to look for.

    Think small and highly targeted...

    shoes = A BIG ASS KEYWORD

    collectible basketball shoes = A niche your might have a chance at if your website is cool enough and well promoted

    kw2 - snoring aids 9 900 searches

    Use Longtail pro... it has everything you're asking for. Each keyword will show you who're on Page1 for that keyword. You can decide if you want to go with which KW. Sometimes the bigger searches can still be used/attacked successfully if you know how but the small KWs can't because the bigger-ballers (authority sites) are on the Page1 of the search page for that small search numbered KW. But even then there can be a smaller site among the top 10 for that KW, which you might be able to displace. And although the big-ballers are occupying the top spots, some of them can still be displaced below you, if you know how to... just saying!
