    Don't want to give the exact keyword phrase away but it is 3 words. Here are some stats:

    Global Monthly Searches - 16
    Competition - Low
    Results in Google - 4,900
    Pages in Google - 4
    Keyword in title - 15
    Keyword in URL - 7
    Keyword in Both - 1

    How long would it take YOU on average to get something like this in the top 5 results? I'm trying to determine whether I should do this black hat or white hat. I know there are a lot of factors and it depends on this and that, but I just want a rough estimate.

    Yep what royerpa said, why bother? You might as well go door to door to peddle whatever you're selling.

    Only 4 pages in google? It wouldnt take longer than a week. But I dont see the point in ranking it though. Unless its something that is going to be popular in the near future. o_O

    I take it the keyword is specific to your business....ie Builders midtown ? if so those 16 searches are worth having.

    Do a manual search of google. the sites that are on the front page...are they big commerce like amazon or big review sites like tripadvisor...How many wiki pages or youtube vids are loading up. On paper it looks very easy if you have a decent domain that is optimised for that keyword.

    It will take me few hours to rank there but I won't even consider such a low searched keyword (unless it's a part of your buying keywords for an expensive product).

    Less than 5 Hour from buying Domain to rank on Top spot. Can do it in less than 3 hours if it's a Challenge. ;)

    Pretty much. It's a local area paired with "lawyer." So based on what lawyers get, I would only need to get the guy 1 client or so every couple of months in order to make what I'm doing worthwhile for him. So 16 is enough for me.

    If ranking the keywords are required for local offline traffic then its worth it.

    Not enough traffic to justify this IMO. Unless you were doing local seo, and just telling them you would get them ranked for some local terms, and promised nothing more than that. Still would be fairly pointless.

    Time is only 1 part of the total equation!

    3 months if you have no fucking $$$

    3 hrs if you got a few grand :)

    3 weeks if you got a couple hundred ...

    Looks like you could rank that with a $2 article, and a post on almost any bookmarking site...

    Again, you would need to give us the amount of links to the #1 result

    If anything don't focus on that keyword but while your trying to rank for other keywords you will probably rank for that one anyway.

    Such small terms are easy to overshoot. A little too much promo and your campaign fires back. I would simply start wp subdomain and see how it ranks.

    Just go for it man, you even can make 2 or 3 websites and try different methods on them, if they all rank page 1 it would be much better.

    If you take a 2 hour map, if it is local, faster.

    For those that don't understand, for a local service keyword, 16 is a great phrase to target, number one spot can get you half the traffic, and maybe 3 new customers each month.

    If you build pools pr patios, those 3 customers have a tremendous value. If your average prifit is $2000, those 3 per month equals $70,000 + a year.

    Same thing if it is selling airplanes or something.

    There is more market in the low volume stuff than people realize.
