    I actually do have some black hat experience but still need someones opinion.

    I have created 9 niche sites in the plastic surgery field. And 1 Main xxxxxxx site. All to try to get people on these sites referred to one or more plastic surgeons. The goal is to get to page 1 on Gaggle.Or top of page 2.
    I plan to work hard on this however is this a too competitive area ?
    Oh and I will focus on Los Angeles area only.

    Each niche site has only 1 major keyword and the main site has all those keywords.

    this has been edited.

    any chance to be successful on these ?

    You never create the sites first and THEN check out the earning potential and the competition. You start out with keyword and niche research, find out the earning potential and the competition and THEN create sites for a low-competition high-profit niche/subniche.

    Just type the keyword in google and check the competition for yourself. They sound pretty competitive from the looks of it though.

    A few questions;

    Are your keywords "nose surgery" or "nose surgery in los angeles"

    if it is just nose surgery that all of your on page seo is targeting, how are you going to target Los Angeles? Nose surgery in Los Angeles does look doable but your going to have to put in quite a bit of work, for 480 searches in a month. Also why are you not targeting rhinoplasty instead of nose surgery looks like more volume there?

    First of all Ive already done keyword research and it is a very competitive field. I'm trying to get a sense or feel or advice about this.

    I dont use rhinoplasty because its probably too competitive , ????

    I will use nose surgery which is less competitive,

    I assume I dont need to use "nose surgery los angeles "

    keyword because los angeles will be a keyword in the articles on the site,
    nose surgery will be the main keyword with los angeles another keyword on the same page and gaggle will put those 2 together ?

    they are very competitive keywords you have there, if you are to focus on a geo location then it's probably better (less competitive and more targeted) to include a city or town etc into the kw I think

    I guess it also depends on how you are monetizing your sites but you can definitely dominate these "microniche" kw with some work rather than not showing up on any pages with the much more competitive ones. 58 here 60 there adds up!

    The top of page 2 = nothing
    You have to get to page 1, better to the top of page 1.

    That said,
    I think you can do this, if you FOCUS very tightly on your "los Angeles" in your phrase - it is NOT enough to have it in the page a bit.

    Your phrases must look like:
    "breast implants los angeles"
    "los angeles breast implants"
    "breast implant los angeles"
    "los angeles breast implant"
    use every variation like above in order to target enough traffic.

    Doing it this way, the competition is not too bad, but expect to take 2-3 months and to need to spend some money on good quality backlinking to get there.

    Yea, if you're doing local seo then you'll do just fine. I've been doing some local seo lately as well.

    Yes, fairly easy actually. If I were you though, I would remove this post before you get a huge group of black hatters that will rank over you :D
