    Hey guys I am frequently finding in my keyword research( on MS) that I find these keyword that have 1 million competition (exact phrase search) but only has 200 competition with the exact phrase in ALLINTITLE(the site/pages title)...

    What does this mean to me? Does this mean I should or shouldn't try to target this keyword to rank in the top 5?

    It confusing to me as to if I could take over this keyword or not?

    I am also seeing keyword that have 30,000 competition which I would normally say that I could compete in that keyword...but the ALLINTITLE has 20,000 for this keyword...what does this mean to me trying to figure out if I need to target this?

    It is telling you that 200 shave the exact phrase in their title tags of their website.

    What it means is there is very little indication of competition from websites who are targeting your exact phrase.

    you have to use judgment and experience as well as a little common sense. 20,000 allintitle is usually a sign it could be competitive, however, use all your resources to find out. Don't just go by one number.

    So would that 1 million/200 typically indicate weak competition making it easier for me to rank? if I used the exact phrase?

    200 competition with the exact phrase in ALLINTITLE means that there are only 200 marketers who are targeting your keyword seriously. So see what these people are up to and study the best among them. If every thing else suits you, then go for it only after thorough study to save time, money, and efforts.

    The 20K allintitle vs 30k competition is very hard to beat as everyone (well, 66% at least) are serious about the particular keyword. Many would be having high domain age, 1000s of backlinks, and other onpage/offpage optimization done to their sites. I wouldn't touch this topic so soon. ;)

    The problem is, you can't measure the strength of the competition by SEOTC alone (all in title). Every metric is important and is a small piece of the larger puzzle. I wouldn't let SEOTC be the deciding factor whether or not you test a market.

    Having said that, if SEOTC is high then I would guess that the other metrics are high as well, but check.

    Here's an example of a 2 word niche I found last night and grabbed the 2 word .org thankfully.

    See the problem is I am whittlling down a 3500 keyword list within my niche...it would take me a year to go thru all of them like this...just looking for a way to rough estimate a keyword as im narrowing down my list of keywords...

    Another thing thats confusing to me in terms of determining if I should try and tackle a keyword (without the exact keyword domain)...

    I am seeing sites that have 2,000,000 exact search results but less than 1,000 all in title results...should I try and target this with an ezine article w/ backlinks?

    Another thing im seeing is 2,000 exact search results and 10,000 all in title results...how does this happen? And should I try and target this with an ezine article w/ backlinks?

    Anyone>?

    Write a script, set up a CRON Job, and let the thing scrape Google while you sleep.
