    This is for: ADSENSE not adwords

    Well, basically i'm all new to this, I want to set up ad sense on the site and I would like to know if I have found a good starter niche for a first timer?

    9,900 Exact Local.
    100% Keyword Density in Domain Name
    £0.55 CPC
    Zero Competition on Google Adwords tool

    I don't know if this is very good? I also have this info from market samurai:

    Using market samurai it says the maximum potential monthly clicks for number 1 for the term is 11k.
    SEOTCR is only 2.68% and there is a domain name available with the keyword density 100%

    If you want any more info on the market samurai results ask! :)
    Obviusly not the keyword..

    Use the Google ad keyword External tool,

    on the far left hand side - there is a button for 'broad'. Underneath that there is a button for 'Exact', tick that, it will show you your keywords searches in brackets, with an Exact match search.

    If you have already done this - then you have found a niche!

    yes, it's on exact, No offence, thanks very much for the reply, that means that I have one person who thinks it is, however is there any there who is a lot more experience which may also help me?

    EDIT:

    Oh and also, when using intitle:"keyword" inurl:"keyword" it returns 1620 results? is this good?

    From what you have written, it certainly sounds inviting, however, without checking it thru then I cannot be absolutely certain...

    I'm not in the business of sniping anyones chosen niche, so if you want someone to help you finally decide, give me a shout and I will help as much as I can ..

    Respect

    what does MS say about the top 10 competition?

    i know that their isnt alot of comp in adwords but that does not really reflect the competition for ranking, only between advertisers.

    6 of the top 10 are PR1-5.
    2 of them are PR0
    1 of them is PR1
    3 are PR3
    Highest PR is 6 and it's ranking 7th for it.
    However there is a PR1 ranking 5th for it.

    These are the stats for number 1:
    PR3. 2,050 indexed pages
    58 referring Domains
    BLP is only 103

    The 9th position is new, under a year, and only has 5 pages, and has a total amount of backlinks of only 172?

    well, it's a waste if it's completely pointless. i need someone to take a look and say whether it's worth it, as I don't know how to decide for my self..

    I agree, if you are afraid of risking $5, than you are in the wrong game.

    Also agreed. Just tell me the keyword and I'll take the risk for you.

    I think this niche is right on the cusp of being valuable.

    An adsense niche is only worth it if
    CPC x .25 x exact searches x .4 x .05. > $50/mo

    CPC x .25 = Estimation on how much $ you will average per click for that keyword
    .4 = 40% = estimation of the number of people that click the #1 ranked search engine result
    .05 = 5% CTR on your adsense ads.

    9900*0.55*.25*.4*.05 = 27 GBP = 44 USD.

    What does the .25 account for? 25% of the cpc value? I was under the impression it was more like 60/40?

    Personally I would go for it. Finding a keyword with those numbers and an EMD available doesn't come around every day. Remember, it's possible to rank for most any term with enough work. I would run the allintitle, and allinurl searches as well to give you an idea of how many sites are actually targeting your keyword.

    Is the emd a .com/.org/.net?

    If you can't get past deciding on your on if it's worth it, good luck trying to build a site and monetizing it

    using &start=990 with keyword in "" it gives 51 pages

    you will need domain + hosting if your going for it ..

    personally, I would give it a punt ..

    I am sure it could be expanded to include further keyword phrases etc. which puts more in your pocket ..

    Enjoy ...
