    I seem to have found a keyword that I am going back on forth on. I could use some help from the pros, if, in your opinion it's a solid keyword.

    The dotCOM is available for purchase.
    Health niche
    Exact Monthly Search: 33,100
    SEOC: 535,000
    cpc: $2.30
    I will use adsense
    I also did the, intitle:"keyword" inurl:"keyword" and just plugged my keyword in both slots and 24,000 came up as a result. Don't know if that's a good number or not.

    Sorry for the copy/paste More details below on the keyword.

    The Pros: I can buy the dotCOM, cpc is average, and from what I understand the search volume would be thought as relatively healthy. Most of my competitors it seems are only PR1 as well.

    The Cons: The SEOC of 535,000. It's a health niche heavy competition is expected.

    Honestly, if my goal to reach the first page of Google is achievable I work on the site for about 6-8 months.

    I would like to start on the right foot. So your guidance is very appreciated. Thanks again in advance.

    HOw many backlinks do the first 10 results have? Sounds like it will take some work to get to #1. Is this your first site our trying to rank? Whats your SEO experience?

    All that matters is the top 10. All other competition figures are just loose guidelines.

    I think Niche Market Samurai has it marked as BLP, right? They range from 13 to 3,000. It's a big scatter fest for the most part, some lower some higher.

    1. 105
    2. 35
    3. 1914
    4. 1876
    5. 3895
    6. 602
    7. 156
    8. 14
    9. 1471
    10. 104

    The info from Niche Market Samurai:

    How many homepage backlinks do the first 3 sites have. That is the question.

    535,00 is not a number.

    How do I find that out exactly? I don't think NMS has anything to let you know the backlinks for the homepage. Perhaps I'm wrong.

    Your comments aren't very helpful. I don't understand why you would even post. :(

    Could really use some guidance on this keyword. No thoughts at all about it? :(

    I can say that if your "allintitle" competition is only 24,000, that is a very strong sign. The backlinks also look beatable.

    Are they high PR? Are they aged? are they exact match domains?

    You would need some serious SEO to do to see results that grow further. If possible grab a guy with some experience and put him to the test. You
    wouldn't want to "Do It Yourself" on this one.
