    Just wondering, how "low" do you consider keywords to be low competition? 100,000 or less indexed pages in Google? <10,000 EMS? And if you choose to out-source the SEO for these back-links, how much would you guys pay to get these keywords to #1 or at least first page? I'm interested in seeing what people consider "low" or "easy" competition keywords and whether or not I'm spending too much here :p

    I plan on spending about $100 to rank two keywords on two different inner pages that have an EMS of 2,400 and another one on a different page with 2,900 EMS. The first two are around the #30-40 mark (just about finished dancing) and the other stabilized at about 50. Would you guys say it would be a waste to spend that much to rank these keywords higher? I already have an SEO company in mind to work on my main keyword/URL which is highly competitive (33,000+ EMS and 327 million indexed pages in Google) but I'm interested in driving more traffic with lower competition keywords. I'm already implementing a few ideas that were suggested to me but I'm still not making any sales :p I'm driving 600 or so uniques/month but I think I can get more if I ranked my keywords to #1 instead of hovering around the 3rd or 4th page each.

    Any tips, suggestions, or advice regarding "low" competition keywords? Any and all help is appreciated, thanks! :)

    Generally keywords with 1000-3000 EMS are considered as low competition keywords.

    Not just that, but you've to look at total no of backlinks for top 10 ranking sites+how many pages are indexed for each site+their ranking Domain/Page authority+total number of backlinks+a lots more... :D

    It's too much to write about. Maybe you can search around the forum to get an idea on how other members are ranking their sites after these google updates.

    I'd be happy to analyze your competition and suggest you "What to do" if you can PM me your URL and keywords.
