    I was inspired by the thread by The Dark One so decided to give it ago.

    I have read up a bit and decided to target solicitors. As a lot of dentists in my area are NHS so free for UK citizens.

    The domain i wanted was taken so i ended up going for Doncaster - solicitors .com.

    Doncaster is a fairly large area and on google gets 2400 local keyword searches for the phrase Doncaster Solicitors.

    What i have done so far:
    - Registered the domain
    - Set up hosting and wordpress on it
    - Installed all in one seo and google site map plugins.
    - Got it listed in Google within 30 mins of setting it up

    My next steps:
    - Buy 4 or 5 unique articles to place on my site.
    - Submit these to sevel sites and bookmarking sites
    - Use a small xrumer blast for added backlinks.

    I will post regularly on how i have progressed and my serps. I would appreciate it if nobody posts my domain without spaces as i dont want my future clients searching the domain and seeing this thread.

    Thanks

    Read about this method too awhile back. Keep us posted on your progress. :) Depending on how new your domain is I'd recommend exercising a bit of caution on your aggressiveness of your linkbuilding though..

    Are you letting the search engines find the links naturally or are you pinging them?

    Hi there, the man here.

    You have failed before you started. That's not remotely accurate. I'd cut my hands off that the term gets problably 20-30 searches a year. You are setting your foundations on sand. Also, you are behind the times. You assume Google is the same as up to 6 months ago. You are in for a nice surprise. Keep up with Google news. Backlinks and the long tail don't work that good anymore; at least not long term. There are top SEO thinkers at top webmaster forums trying to figure out what Google wants lately and they all are frustrated as hell trying to figure it out.

    Throw away all those SEO ebooks, Google methods, etc. There is a new Google in town.

    After reading above comment I am really curious, so I started small research on the keyword " Doncaster solicitors" . Agreed that google traffic estimator, google search based keywords and other tools give different results, but if we have to believe Google then I fond 110-125 searches per month for that keyword. (don't cut your hand) I also found that on the second page of Google search with that keyword a parked site with no content and backlink but only keyword in the domain (doncastersolicitors.com)

    Unfortunatly I can't find your site ( I stopped looking after 4 th page) Similarly, for the keyword "solicitors in doncaster" there is a site with keywords in domain at 2nd page with only one backlink. (solicitorsindoncaster.co.uk)

    Now for the positive side. It is my experience that for a new site google really do the dance. This is a good sign. I think you will at least end up on second page. How to move your site to first page from second page is beyond me. Since, I am also doing same experiment but following different thread (strange that thread I can't find any more, may be moved to Jr.VIP or DNS) my keywords has 5400 searches per month and after dancing my site (10 days old) landed on 2 nd page. Now I am doing link building at present only 8 links are indexed. (My website has no articles (lol)

    Lastly my two cent to op
    Don't be discouraged. Only way to learn in this field is doing mistakes.

    A suggestion : I found a good keyword with around 1000 searches per moth for doncaster. You may use it but after through examination regarding competition and all. Don't do the same mistake again.

    The keyword is "
    doncaster airport parking" Both .com and .net are taken and parked so no problem. .org is available. average cpc for adwords is also good $3.99 - $5.76.

    All the best and don't stop.

    Thanks for your advice guys especially the negative stuff as it does help :D.

    But why am i wrong on the amount of searches per month?

    Why is it not the 2400 that it suggests on google keyword search??

    Thanks

    ExtraWinner, you and me have things in common....! I have the exact same issue

    I am targeting a particular profession, I have XinLocation.com . Did some backlinking, I am on page 1 of google.com (position 5) and page 3 of google.ie (position 7). The .ie 's are really killing me. So I will consider purchasing a .ie in the future, but at the moment I am just constantly addingg new content and hopefully backlinks, and hopefully get to improve the google.ie rank. It should be possible as there are a few .coms ahead of me...

    Anyway, at the current positions, I get about 3-5 visitors per day, so I may even just give up on this within the next 4/5 weeks and just sell the domain, or set up a site etc and charge say 20euro per month for someone in the profession to have it...

    That's my plan B anyway...!
