    First, please ignore my incomplete, Roboform-ed username, thank you.

    I have accumulated $30 in my Paypal from doing GPTs and menial click jobs from different sources. I think this is enough for me to start a quality semi-auto blog with Adsense, but I still need some inputs before diving in and losing my hard earned money. Getting a job nowadays is a pain in the buttock, especially for immigrants like me.

    So, what are your criteria for a keyword? Like, the range of monthly searches and average CPC that you would consider for a low competition keyword. And how far from reality is the estimated revenue from Google Adwords?

    Also, what is the chance of someone discovering the same niche as we do? If that person starts attacking our site with black hat methods, how do we make sure that we will survive the attacks? If anyone has experience, please share.


    I have used the search function before making this thread, but if I miss something then please point me in the right direction. Thank you for your time.

    Apparently I have missed something obvious. No one bothered replying LOL
    Thanks to everyone who read anyway :>

    So I've found a keyword with 10K search monthly and $0.75 CPC, low competition says Google Adwords. Do you think I should go for it?

    Yes it sounds like you found a good keyword. 10k searches is a good number, it wont have too much competition, but still enough to make some money. 0.75 is also nice, I would go for it. Good Luck.

    Make sure that when you are using the Google Keyword tool that it is set to "exact" and not "broad". Otherwise you can be in for a big disappointment down the road. You can find the option on the left hand side of the keyword tool.
