    Hello :)

    how hard it is to find a keyword with little competition these days ?
    and of course with at least 1000 exact searches per month.

    thank you !

    Easy if you look in the correct markets. English is pretty saturated now days, but there is a whole world out there, just think outside the box...

    Yes, I do offer Spanish sites, but I'm not saying in any way "buy my service please!". I'm just saying, why focus on the English market EXCLUSIVELY if there are much easier ones that are practically untapped. Not only Spanish btw. It's not shameless self-promotion; I own non-English sites, and I just happen to walk the talk here, and reap the benefits in the process. :)

    Thank you for the help, so all you are trying to say that english sites are preoccupied ? So it is better to try find in another language ?

    I'd have to agree with that. If you do a keyword search w/ market samurai or keyword scout -- almost all the MNS keywords are registered.

    if you speak another language (like me), try making a site on another language with low-competition keywords. :)

    that's good to know. try determining your target market first then do keyword research. you'll get your keywords in no time. and oh... content is king. : )

    Thousands of domains are deleted every day, you go figure. It's getting a tad harder as more people are getting involved in IM but you can definitely still find some.

    No saying that all good English domains are taken, of course not; what I'm saying is that finding a good English KW is getting harder and harder (which I think this is something everybody will agree with). This does not mean that you should forget about English altogether, but why would you focus exclusively on English when you also have many more markets (spanish, french, portuguese, german, italian, etc) with very profitable KW's and a LOT softer competition? I'm only preaching what everybody else preaches: to be successful you need to DIVERSIFY.

    You forgot the <sarcasm> brackets there ;) . Anyway, never said that English is saturated, I said English is only getting harder. I invite you to try and prove the contrary. Of course English still is and will remain to be the most profitable market for a long time; but, as I said above, why not try to rank foreign KW's (not talking about Spanish KW's exclusively here, there is a whole world out there) that can be as profitable as an English one (1000+ local searches, $1 CPC, high OCI, etc) that will take you less than half the effort to rank given the much softer competition? It's all about the cost/benefit ratio here and thinking outside the box.

    Not intentional. Sometimes sig doesn't show even though the "show sig" box is checked.

    It's not hard nowadays but it will be hard in the future. If you want to 1000 searches exact, first of all you should buy a market samurai than you must learn " how can I increase my web site results " .

    Good luck

    I think you're wrong. Micro niches are on the decline, so EMDs aren't as in high demand as they were a year or 2 ago. However, all the newbies think micro niches are the newest thing on the block, so for another 10-12 months, the newbies will be buying them up, then letting them expire after a year of not making money from them. I predict domain availability for 1000-3000 searched keywords will go up after a couple year once the newbies drop them. However, the need to find highly searched EMDs will probably keep going up. 5000+ EMDs are getting harder to find without tools.
