    So the questions is how much would i need to pay (approximately) to get into top 5 on google for keyword that gets let's say, 25k monthly searches on google.

    And what would the price be for something that has like 3k searches monthly.

    Does the domain name have to be the same as keyword?


    So if someone could tell me approximate price, like 50$, 100$, 300$, 500$, 1000$, 2000$, 5000$+ or whatever i'd be really grateful.

    I say at a minimum $500 and you are looking more at $1000 / months depending on the quality of links and your competitions BL.

    Good idea to have the Keyword in the domain, otherwise you may look at $1500 / month to get ranket.

    Does it help if the keyword is for example 'black hat' and the domain would not be blackhat.com but theblackhat.com ?

    Or does it not help. (the exact domain for the keyword that has the highest amount of searches if obviously already taken

    If you were my potential client I would offer the same package for both options, and that's $3,500/month for at least 3 months (obviously, thats if your site is not a churn-burn)

    If you dont know how to create prices for your business (I guess you ask cause of this) that would be a problem...for both you and your clients

    To rank with white hat SEO for any keyword it would take 1 to 3 months. The pricing might be around $1000. It needs a well-structured Off page promotions. If not it would be a waste on investing.

    It would probably be around $1000 for first month and then $600 a month minimum for 3-4 months if you want quality links and long lasting results. Stay away from guys who charge amounts like $3000-5000 a month, they probably give your project to another SEO company and have no real SEO knowledge.

    I just ranked a 21k medium keyword the other day with a web 2.o structure, 3rd place at the moment. took 10 weeks.. I paid $120 for someone to set up my web 2.0 then paid another $50 for some PBN links then did some other linking myself to the web 2.0s.I might spend another $200-300 total to get it in 1st, That will be around $670, Anyone charging you over $1000 a month OP are just reselling ...... It's all the same shit with a huge markups.

    Most of SEO professionals failed to rank a keyword with 25K monthly searches (High competition)...for the approx price $500/month (1-3 months)... It is purely depends on the website quality and other factors.

    Just go for $500 with the time 3-6 months (Pure white hat)
    Go for $2000+ time duration 45-60 days (Pure black Hat)

    500$ for a month is the best price for 20k unique searches monthly. Use keyword as a domain is a good idea and it also increase your monthly searches.

    And it is not necessary that you domain should have exact keywords.Many SEO strategists would purchase exact match domains (EMDs), which are domains that exactly match the keyword phrase they are targeting.Having a domain name that matches your target keyword(s) does offer some benefits, but there is a bigger factor you should consider: the brandability of the domain.You brand should be solution to your customers not merely a ranking factor.
