    It is a pretty easy keyword, as it has around a few low age domains with no links in top 10.

    .Org domain is available, but it has been registered before and as per archive it have had too high keyword density and I guess that because of this it hadn't been ranking that good so the owner let it expire. I must add that the domain has no backlinks at all. I have seen a lot of such scenarios lately - a lot of emd's that were registered before.

    Should I go for this domain or not?

    Have you had similar experience?

    Is is a money keyword or an information keyword?

    If its a money, then go ahead and buy it.

    Indeed, to Prince Visi's point - it depends on how you intend to cash in!

    Quite some time ago I found a keyword that had 200k exact searches, and VERY little competition (as in, pretty much none at all) - I thought I'd hit the jackpot for an adsense site. I ranked it #1 in the space of a few weeks only, and then proceeded to earn... a few hundred dollars a month only :p

    So it all depends on what the keyword is, and more importantly, what that keyword signals about the searchers intent, and what they're likely because of that intent, once they're on your site.

    The only thing that is important is if this domain is rankable or not?

    It has a high CPC. Also i have never had ECPM lower than $4 in the lowest paying niches so I do not worry too much about the thing, because $4 is quite ok for very very easy niches.

    I have bought another EMD - that was also registered before and it still isn't in top 100. I guess probably because of keyword density over optimisation it had with previous owner.

    Maybe "easy keywords" don't have anything to sell. However, you can generate traffic from them. You can try to use Adsense to monetize.

    Do a good reasearch on that keyword before you proceed... Coz most keywords just lands nothing... So be aware.

    If the domain has no SPAM backlinks from previous owner, then why wouldn't it rank?

    I think because of over-optimisation history.

    For example the domain i bought few weeks ago, had no back links but it was abandoned by previous owner specifically because i guess google deranked it due to on-page over-optimisation. I think the 3 word keyword has been mentioned 15 times on the 500 word homepage. It still isn't in top 100.

    If checking on a keyword tool, low competition means there are few ads competing for ads on that keyword.

    If you saw low competition via poor quality/volume of backlinks, then go ahead and buy.

    It's a common mistake.

    I think OP understand difference between low competition for ads and for ranking... Also OP, go for your domain, because in today's world big G probably knows that you're the new owner of domain and that is completely new site. So if you will have quality content I don't see reason to not rank it...

    I didn't even ask about competition/earnings. Anyway, here low competition = easy to rank. It is by no means adwords competition.

    I ask about domains with an over-optimisation history.

    I tried once and failed. Did you face this situation?
