    This is my first thread I open on this forum. I'm sorry if it isn't in the right section.

    I've read a lot of threads on the forum during last 2 weeks. I've tried some methods to start making some quick money but I realized that there's no such thing as making quick, easy money without putting any efforts, or at least not in the long-term. I've never had a site or a blog and this will be my first one(blog). I think it's best to start with low-competitive niche to start from and scale things up. I did some keywords researches today and I found something that I'm interested in and will have fun while building the blog, will learn new things. This is more like a experiment but it'll be great if it works and start earning me some $$ :) I used Google AdWords Keyword Tool and Traffic Travis(free version) for the research. I've targeted a keywords with 4000-6000 global monthly searches (main keywords) and relevant keywords with around 2000-10 000 global monthly searches. Is it better to choose one with medium or with low competition? On one side, it's better to be with low-competition cus I'm new at the whole thing with IM but I'm willing to progress and learn, on other side, will it worth the time which I'll put in in this project. I would appreciate your opinions, advises and directions.

    It would definitely be worth to put time in your project. Experience is the best teacher. You will gain so much from doing your project and then you can carry that experience on to your next.

    Here are some tip's from my end

    While searching for keywords choose exact searches and not broad
    And competition in adwords tool doesn't mention the seo competition it shows the no.of advertisers bid for that particular keyword
    Also don't choose any branded/seasonal keywords
    Choose keywords with atleast 2-3 words long
    Do some research on the keyword you choose (like seo competition,competitors on page and many other factors)

    I did more research on the competition and here are some results

    keyword intitle: 554
    keyword inurl: 395
    keyword inurl + intitle: 290
    average page backlinks: 140

    the keyword is 2 words long. Should I jump in? What do you think?

    It depends on which 3 sites are ont he first three of SERP. And don't look at global monthly search, you should choose one country (like US or UK etc) and target only to one country.

    For the start you want the best keyword as possible, because it will make everything easier for you.

    Exact monthly US Searches: 1000 (or more)
    Adwords Competition: High
    CPC: $1 (or higher)
    SERP Competition: Low
