Looking for some input on this. Right now, I've got one affiliate site which does fairly well. I've been adding "filler" articles which has slowly but surely increased traffic over the last 6 months. I went on a search to find a low-comp keyword (something with sub 1000 local search volume) in which to write a nice article for. I'm mainly doing this because I want to see how much traffic it realistically generates. So, I came upon a keyword which appeared "low-comp" from everything I know anyway. Here are the metrics in Long Tail Pro: I'm not seeing a ton of Page authority and pretty much no juice links. The 10 results you see there are: 1. an online magazine 2. amazon 3. amazon 4. niche site (although it doesn't appear to be monetized - odd - but it is a very nice site, not a lousy throw-together) 5. site that sells this type of product 6. forum 7. niche site (lousy) 8. forum 9. barnes and noble 10. some type of small news site - not local Anyhow, the article has been indexed for about a week now. It's around 600 words and follows on page SEO best practices. I've been monitoring it's ranking and it did a little bounce between 500+(long tail pro's way of saying it is non-existent) and high 100's for a couple of days and now it is hanging around 180. I wanted to get some feedback on what you all thought of the metrics I posted because it seems to me that my article (which is very well written - by me) would be a 'shoe-in' to the first 10 in Google. Have I misjudged this keyword? Thoughts? Thanks!
