    I was doing keyword research with google tool

    Found a two word keyword that has 1150 exact search and 120 competition. I think, a micro potential exists over here. However, there are two concerns.
    1) 0.51-Estimated Avg. CPC
    2) Local search is only 10. (1150 exact search mentioned above is the global monthly search.

    I am wondering, is it worth building a micro niche website on this keyword,

    EDIT:


    Forgot to mention that if I add an "s" to the keyword, then additional 1000 exact search volume exists for the keyword.

    For example, let's say, I am targeting "keyword tool" Now, keyword tool has 1100 search volume and "keyword tools" has another 1000 search volume. But, there are no more than 100 local search for both combined. All are global search.

    Thank in advance!

    Super, it really depends on your way of monetization. If you're going to use it for CPA (Email/Zip submit) then its not worth your time as it only gets 200 searches a month from USA (Assuming you'll be targeting USA traffic).

    And again, even if it has 2500 exact searches a month, I really don't see huge potential in it ;)

    Rest us up to you :)

    Ok, I see. I was planning for adsense, not cpa. What is the ideal combination for micrio niche?

    How much competition and global search? I heard, less than 3000 competition and more than 5000 global search assuming the Estimated Avg. CPC to be more than $1.

    Well there is not restriction like that. :)

    You can go for any KW and dominate if you have enough resources and time. You can check this thread:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ethod-step-step-keyword-research-newbies.html

    And I'm not much of an adsense guy so can't comment on CPC and such :p

    Before you decide to target on a KW or not, you must check the competition. This kw can bring in some $$$, but it isn't worth a try if you have to spend a shitload of time to get on the first page.

    While going for GKWT, rule of thumb, always look for "local search volume". And do not touch those keywords. They have so low volume of search.

    Not worth it for a standalone site. Just use it on a bigger site.

    Try to touch at least 14,000 Exact local searches with 1.5$ or greater CPC

    SO it will become your future asset rather then these low traffic potential competition

    IT is my personal Experience ;)
