    No they are not harder to rank. But first of all I would advise you to change Google Keyword Tool to Germany, German and choose EXACT in the left side of the panel. Now you should see much less searches.

    Have a nice day:)

    This. 2,7m exact searches from Germany are highly unlikely if you keep in mind that even something like "bmw" can't reach even 500k.

    Mate, look again for the keyword on Google keyword tool and check only [Exact] to your left.

    I don't target exact match, I target broad match. The keyword gets 90% of its searches from Germany.

    If you "target" broad match like you said, all keywords that partial match with your keyword get added to the estimated monthly searches. Broad match is worth nothing.

    What is the monthly search volume if you uncheck "broad" and just check "exact"?

    Thank you Winternacht for pointing that out.

    I thought the keyword tool would suggest keywords that people actually use to search, but it makes sense since it's an advertising tool and not a SEO tool.

    I will run Market Samurai later and pick 10 keyword extensions to rank for. I already analyzed the competition before buying the domain and there are some keywords with nice traffic/competition/CPC .

    I already have the same niche but in english

    If this is the case, I would suggest you to keep the domain name. This is because it is pretty hard to sell a .de domain name with only 700 exact monthly searches.

    700 Exact matches is very low. People tend to use broad searches and get misguided.

    yes 700 is very low I agree but there are some easy to rank keyword extensions with a lot more traffic. It's just a bit more work.
