    I found few keywords, which have around 200k searches with low competition ( 7 from kwrevealer ).
    Will I be to rank with just buying expired domain with trust flow and cf over 15+ and writing atleast 2k + words optimized article?
    In order to rank will I have to get for each kw own domain and put the article on homepage or will be better to invest in slightly better expired domain maybe tf & cf 20+ and have each article as a post? So on the homepage will be just the summaries from the newst posts?

    I haven't done seo for over a year now and I have never actually bought expired domain, I have always bought tld which was exact name domain and I did very little of site seo, I have usually ranked with just my long on page seo optimezed content and ofcourse that I have always tried to rank easy kws.

    No you won't.

    Expired domains are strong and help tons, but you can't expect to just put 2K words of content there and rank. Let alone for 200K a month KW (easy competition, right...). They can't do miracles.

    People here expect miracles from expired domains as money sites. Only to end up disappointed.

    Low competition lies in the eye of the beholder, especially since tools like keyword revealer are flawed when it comes to Google Rankbrain. Just because noone has the keyword in the site title, URL or description doesn't mean you can rank for it easily. If your site doesn't match the search intent Google assumes (e.g. transactional -> ecommerce site) , you'll never reach page 1.

    I wouldn't bank on a keyword being low competition just because kwrevealer says so. In fact, it is more than likely not low competition at 200k searches unless perhaps it is a non-english term. Even informational keywords at 200k searches nearly always have authority sites in the top spots.

    Either way it will take more than just an expired domain to rank.

    Thanks, I really have no idea, that is why I asked. Ok I will rather find brandable TLD.

    Well it's still better to go with expired domain, but you have to invest into it a bit. :)
