    I was wondering if there's a number to avoid when looking at search results, so anything such as DA/PA/TF etc. I understand there's LOTS of other factors to look at when keyword researching, but it would be good to have some type of numbers to go by. I'd really appreciate it if someone could let me know.

    Thanks

    In a nutshell I would not bother with competition that has a TF which you can't achieve. Often it is much more difficult than this because PBN links are in play that you can't see.

    I would recommend staying away from keywords where sites have above a 20 PA/DA/TF/CT etc. This is hard to achieve. If below that though shouldn't be to hard as you can get expired domains with these metrics pretty easily. Example of a provider would be me ;)

    I would rather stay away from high RD number. Site can have a TF of 20+ with just 10 backlinks, which you can easily outrank, but if it has TF20+ and RD in hundreds, then that's a no go.
