Do both the DA and PA of the top sites have to be less than 10?
You have to check the seo competition for top 10 results. Install seoquake to do it automatically or type your keyword and analyze every page manually and then check their backlinks with a tool like ahrefs.
@pauleylo I installed SEOQuake and it gives me these rank numbers but I don't know what to make of them.
You should definitely check Google Keyword Planner!
That's where you'll find a list of keywords that are similar to the one you wanna rank for and analyze the sort of competition and value the market has for each specific one.
You can also explore LSIGraph to look for similar keywords you should rank for.
The key thing?
Don't rank just for one keyword but try to branch out and explore synonyms and related keywords.
Hello dano2, PA/DA yes, you can start checking PA/DA from Top 10 in order to start
Right, but the competition in Google Keyword Planner is just for adwords. It does not reflect the organic result competition
How can I tell if a site is an authority site? How much PA and DA does it need? When I look at keywords in the titles and URLs of the results, how can I tell if it's optimized? Say my keyword is best car subwoofers. If a title and permalink says best big card subwoofers, is it optimized, or does it have to say best car subwoofers? What if it just says best subwoofers or car subwoofers? I'm so confused
If it is a 4 word keyword then it should be easier and the lesser words it have the tougher it gets. Using broad keywords in meta and title is good but always better to use the actual keywords in the title, URL and within the article. This ensures direct relevancy. But you can also target broader keywords in the article. Well, if you are confused now then the bots can also get confused
Dude, you crated the same thread today.
@TayaX I just realized that, I forgot, sorry. The answers just aren't clear.
Try to read some IM articles first
Dont get confused with so many things. Just check keyword on KWfinder and after that just go on http://www.whatsmyserp.com/serpcheck.php and search your keywords with your domain or some random domain and you will be able to check if top 10 results are optimized for keywords or not. E.g http://prntscr.com/dixkso , Green ticks mean optimized and red mean not optimized.
There is no magic number - it depends on the competitors. The more competitive the niche, the better your competitors will be and you d have to compete accordingly. There are a lot of tools and websites you can use to analyze the difficulty of kws/niche and to gauge the competition
@Nut-Nights why do I have to input a domain? What do T and D mean?
So you results can be displayed, T mean you keyword is n that website title tag. D mean your keyword is in that website description tag. Basically on page optimization shit. You will get the idea about competition.
@Nut-Nights ok. The how to rank guide mentions authority sites. How can I tell if a site is an authority site?
Install a addon SEO quake to check site metrics. Basically sites with good alexa ranks and have lots of pages indexed in Google with tons of high quality articles are consider authority sites or brand sites like nike,rebook etc Like news website, alexa top 1000 sites, .Gov sites, .edu sites , etc.
Long tail pro keyword comp. Also check the sites that are ranking, their age/TF/CF/links etc.
Let's say I use MozBar. What's the maximum DA and PA that a result can have that I'd be able to outrank within a month if I make 20 Web 2.0s?
keyword planner "competition" stat is about the PPC bid competition, not the ranking competition
