Ok. I am go to start to build building sites [micro niche sites > niche sites > authority sites]. I know how to or should i say i know what to do for offsite seo thanks to searching bhw guides. I was going outsource mns and the content writing but can't get a hold get a hold of seller. Also i figure i can easily set up the sites and create the quality content and... i have to take care of getting domain and hosting even if i outsource mns. Where im getting stuck at is the most important factor of building the site which is keyword research. I know how to do keyword research using google keyword tool. I am able to see estimate for adword competition, global/local searches, and cpc for keywords. But i need to know how to search for level of competition for keyword I can do the first half of keyword research but how do i do the other half... to ensure that i have good keywords to build sites from. How do i find keywords with low competition and mid/high adword competition w/o using a paid software/service. method? free software? tips/advice? any useful appreciated... can someone point me in the right direction.
