Does my IM strategy make sense?

    Hi BHers

    I am new to IM, so I am not really good at it although generating some adsense $$.

    I have a blog where I make every day several posts. Instead of going for the high competition KWs I make posts to very low competition that get about 10 daily exact views (SeoT). Lets say I make 1000 Posts, would I get 10000 views? I know that is Maths, but does that work in real life?

    I would not get high competition KW to pos 1, but I manage to get those mentioned above to pos 1.

    I do onpage seo and backlinking and fB and twitter as well.

    Thx
    Eric

    Above you in the SERPS
    Perhaps it makes sense to you but doesn't make sense to me (used to think and do it that way with EMD with less then 1k Exact Match Searches a month)...

    Don't limit yourself to small keywords, think big that's where the big money is...

    You still have to rank those low competition keywords many times, if your main site doesn't have enough authority you won't easily naturally rank. So if you want to throw some backlinks at all of those than ya, it's possible. But sounds like more work than needed to me.

    Don't you think it is much more difficult to rank 1000 exact? or is it the same?

    Don't get so hooked on exact matches for search. I've seen keywords with few matches have high competition and keywords with high matches have low competition. Think about what you are trying to sell, and then look for low competition keywords that are related to your product and that you think would convert.

    I want to monetize with adsense and amazon affiliates.

    This way you will make more effort but you will get less traffic. Anyhow keep on trying your luck.
