    If one was to purchase an EMD with 450 000 monthly searches and 'low' competition, would the domain instantly be worth any cash or would one have to build a website around the domain for it to be worth an money?


    Cheers

    Also CPC is $3.38

    Is it better to get the-keyword.com or thekeyword.com

    The 'the' is in the search term.

    I would develop an authority site with some original content and then would try to flip for some more cash.

    Is it branded? Most EMDs with that volume that are available are branded. Low adwords competition is also a bad sign.

    Whether or not would it would be valuable would depend on a lot of factors. Getting an EMD with that search volume does not guarantee a profitable flip.

    I hate to say it but, the site that ranks #1 for the term is wikipedia. If this a deal breaker?

    Its not branded per say, its an event in history that is repeated every so often. I don't know how to explain it without giving too much info. But its not a commercial brand.

    thekeyword.com
    and
    the-keyword.net
    and
    thekeyword.net

    and build sites on all of them :)

    Wikipedia isn't overly difficult to beat most of the time. Wouldn't call that a deal breaker at all.

    TheEMD.com is not a EMD though.
    As far as Wiki, a EMD can be in front of it. I have EMD before amazon and wiki.
    The thing to get there is don't make any tier2 and tier3 with sb backlinking stuff...

    the EMD has the in front of it. So in keyword tool it term with 450 000 searches is for example thefacebook. I think I am explaining this really poorly. I put, for example 'the keyword' into keyword tool so thekeyword.com would be an EMD.

    If t1, t2, t3 with SB blasts wouldn't work, what would?

    Sorry for all the Qs people but I am extremely bad at SEO.

    Forget SB blasts and all that shite. Worthless.

    Build a fat HTML5 CSS3 website on the domain.

    Is it going to repeat itself again soon or did it just repeat itself this last year and it won't be repeating again for a while?

    If it happened this past year than that 450000 is not the true search volume. It was the search volume averaged over the last year. If it repeats fairly regularly, like a blue moon, then it might be worth getting.

    The primary question when buying such a domain is: would someone else want this for their commercial project? If you have a .com for a common term then there's a good chance this domain would be worthwhile.

    Wikipedia 1st is a great indicator which tells you that the niche is empty. It takes a bit to outrank it, but when you see wikipedia 18th it is how you know it is a year process to get there.

    [Not to mention EMD has greatly decreased in value over the past 72 hours... ;)]

    Is that 450,000 exact searches or phrase or broad? Also is the low competition using the Google keyword tool. If it is then this could mean nobody is going after this keyword or its not a keyword with buying intent. Sometimes high competition is what is needed using the Adwords tool. What about checking for competing domains, keywords in competing domains etc.

    Choose your own path mon frere. I can only speak from my experience. Content is king.

    The game is constantly changing. Personally I'd stay away from any spammy links. You can build backlinks manually.

    Bare in mind what works for some might not work for others.

    Good luck in your project.

    Its something that last happened about 20 years ago. The competition has some PR5 domains, some .edu.and .gov

    I think this is going to be way to hard to rank.

    Well, I don't see a "theEMD" as a EMD. Actually, when I search for a EMD I REALLY want, if it's gone, I reg aEMD.com or theEMD.com or 1EMD.com, etc...That makes it a NON-EMD IMO...

    I don't think you're getting it. 'the' is part of the keyword that is searched. For example: "The Dark Knight", the emd would be thedarkknight.com, not darkknight.com
