    well, lately i have been investing in keyword research. I have been loking over 10000 keywords/daily. I have been hitting some good keywords but every single time they have something that says not to go for.

    Its either high top10 competition, not enough advertisers and specially exact match domains (.com, net org), already taken.

    So i decided to lower down my expectations for potential amount of visitors/day to 20. Same thing as above.

    Then, just for curiosity i decided to look for keywords that could bring 10 or less... and surprise, even exact match keyword domains were taken... i mean 10 or less visitors a day...

    and this did not happen just for a couple dozen keywords... it happened to hundreds....

    I know i could get domains lime myexactkeywordreview.com or myexactkeywordshop.com but for now i am aiming at only exact keywod domains.

    What do you guys think all of this?

    Now i am looking to a keyword that could bring 18 visitors daily and exact domain is available, and spyfu shows ads worth between 1 and 10$.... what to do lol...

    Anyway, this is a freaking war.l ol

    if you don't try any you wont ever know just go for the long tail keywords and you would find some that other sites haven't been so optimized for

    Finding good keywords can be daunting sometimes but I haven't had too much of a problem for whatever niche I've chosen. First I look for what people want or whatever is popular then I look for a product then look for keywords. I use Market Samurai for my keyword and domain research.

    I'm not saying that it's easy but dig deep enough and you will find keywords and domains that work for you.

    Also just because you find a competitive keyword doesn't mean you can't rank for it. There are many blackhat techniques to help you outrank your competition for competitive keywords.

    For me, I like a challenge just to prove that I can outrank my competition.

    Hi,

    try looking for keywords using the wonder wheel =) make different variations of the keyword and input it in ms. Sometimes you'll just find those golden keywords unexpectedly so just be patient and be creative in finding them =)

    And don't trust google keyword too much. They are not giving absolute correct data.

    the wonderwheel tool for sale here on bhw works great too and is cheap it digs in up to 9 levels search it up and you will find the thread, yeah googles data is not 100% correct i think it doesn't show monthly searches that are lower than 10/monthly.
