    I found a keyword with low competition, 1.8 million global monthly searches and 823,000 local monthly searches. Would this be a good keyword to capitalize on, if done right?

    Also, is local searches mean searches done in my country, assuming global is the whole world?

    Yes local is your country. Is that broad or exact searches per month?? I dont think theres such things as a low competition KW with 823K searches, but if so you found a gold mine.

    When you say low competition, what do you mean? If you mean in the Keyword Tool from Google, that bar is Adsense competition, and not search engine ranking competition.

    To find the real value of a keyword, you'll want to:
    - Check the exact matches (look on the left side of the Google KW Tool),
    - Do an inurl: search and an intitle: search for the keyword.
    - Then analyse your first 10 competitors for the phrase search ("keyword") and if the have low PR (0-1) and low amounts of backlinks, you're game.

    Here's a nice thread that explains this more thoroughly,
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ethod-step-step-keyword-research-newbies.html

    And here's a good thread for starting out on your journey for beginning a website,
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...poonfeed-crashed-challenge-30-days-money.html

    I'd suggest looking into Scrapebox too, that tool will be invaluable to a website entrepreneur for creating link pyramids (use the search bar to find out more about link pyramids).

    If you need any help with using Scrapebox, which is a linkbuilding program. It a great place to start when it comes to automating certain aspects of your website, and it's probably the hottest tool in most people's arsenal. It's easy to learn, has a great developer and is constantly (2-3 times a week) updated. Feel free to question me and I'll PM you some guides on how to get started. Remember, the most important way to make money online is to keep trying and to keep putting stuff into action. Shit gets outdated quickly on the web, act fast while you're in the know!

    PS: here's something to consider looking into also, but only if you truely think you can handle spending a lot of money at the beginning of your adventures,
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...lueprint-senuke-amr-bmd-xrumer-scrapebox.html

    This covers a lot of detail about how to use other programs (include Scrapebox, which I've mentioned) effectively for linkbuilding and working on climbing those search engines. :pirate:

    Ok, that was broad. Exact is 27,100 global and 8,100 local.

    What is the difference between broad and exact?

    That's a good keyword in terms of exact searches. Exact searhes are to-the-word-and-order precise. IE broad will cover, for the keywords 'great advertising deals' any order of them ('great advertising deals', 'advertising deals great', etc.). Exact only shows it for the exact order of that keyword - 'great advertising deals'. This is important and helps you target your keywords precisely based on the searches for that exact phrase.

    Look in the above post I gave you, the first link will explain in detail.

    Do a G search with

    inurl:"keyword" intitle:"keyword"

    I like under 100,000 but if you're still new at this go for less than 50k or 30k.

    Broad Match - The number of monthly searches containing your keywords in any order, along with any number of other words in the search. For example, broad match results for ‘dog training' will also include search traffic for ‘dog training, training a dog, training a small house dog, dog obedience and trick training', etc.


    Exact Match - The number of monthly searches containing your exact keywords, in their exact order, with no other words in the search. For example, exact match results for ‘dog training' will include ONLY the search traffic for the exact keyword phrase dog training.

    it depends. There are people on both sides. Some people say go for niches as low as a thousand searches but then others decide to go for more larger searches. Really it all depends if you think you can get to number one for the KW> Peace.

    It may still not be a goldmine, it depends on the keyword. If the keyphrase is, for example, "how to roll a capacitor out of household materials," there is no way they will buy anything from you, which would explain lower competition. If, on the other hand, it's something with the word "buy" in it, you have stumbled on to something great.

    Try to avoid one word keywords, unless you can snag the EMD for it - which would be doubtful (EMD = exact match domain, a considerable factor in SEO. EG EMD for 'carpets in london' = carpetsinlondon.com or .org or whatever). Most of us use 2-3 word keyword, but more experienced people oculd go for this. It really depends on the top 10 competitors in Google - if you're up against, idk, wikipedia.org's homepage, you couldn't outrank it realistically, it's too established.

    Carry out the keyword testing steps outlined here > (http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ethod-step-step-keyword-research-newbies.html) - if it's possible, why not. It's just unlikely it'll be good.

    Far too many, the link above will tell you that you're looking for about 30K top for intitle and inurl. Don't be disheartened though, keep looking! There's many good untaken niches - think outside the box for money makers that nobody will have tried to monetise yet :)

    Ok, I found two keywords and the top three search results for one have no backlinks. The second one the top search link has 3 backlinks and 2nd has 1. They must have some badass content.

    Well it depends on what you consider to call a low keyword competition and it totally depends on your choice and category of website. If you ask me what you are saying would be considered pretty stiff competition but if what you are saying is cool then go for it and good luck.
