    Before I knew much about keyword research I registered a domain last year thinking it would be a good keyword to pursue since I saw it on one of those high CPC lists. I did some proper KW research and I see it's only getting 11 exact and 30 broad searches a day (330 and 900 a month) but the CPC is more than $20 for broad, $7 for exact, and there are 5 advertisers.

    Even as an SEO newbie I'm pretty certain I could dominate the top 3 if not the first position.

    Is this worth pursuing as an Adsense site? Should I just do it anyway for practice and then target other keywords with separate pages on that domain? Or should I just dominate this keyword and move on to another keyword/domain?

    Adsense site ? i don't think so, because making money with adsense is all about volume,unlike affiliate products you need a huge a mount of traffic to make money, so it's better to find an other keyword with a higher search volum and even if it got a huge amount of compititors just make sure that the first page is not full of highly optimized websites and athority sites and i'm sure that you can make it to the top with a bit of work .

    Good Luck!
