    Hello everybody. A while back I found a keyword an was wondering if it was worth competing in.

    Keyword info:

    The keyword has two words.
    Competition: Low (0.21)
    [EXACT] Monthly Searches: 823 000

    Competitor info:

    1. PR7|Page Authority 0.00|BL 1533626|BLS 9182176|EDU/GOV 511|DMOZ Yes| Title Yes|Desc Yes|H1Tag No

    2. PR6|Page Authority 0.00|BL 8386|BLS 4441092909|EDU/GOV 2| DMOZ Yes|Title Yes|Desc no|H1Tag Yes

    3. PR7|Page Authority 0.00|BL 1622906|BLS 3068600|EDU/GOV 69|DMOZ Yes|Title No|Desc Yes|H1Tag No

    Sorry, I currently can't post links or pictures yet.

    Anyway the exact domain name is taken. I was thinking of extending the domain name with the keyword. EX. bestcheap[keywordname]

    Leave a comment with your thoughts on this. Thanks for your input! :)

    Are you kidding mate ?
    first website have 1533626 backlinks to the page, second have 8386 and both have keyword in title. Just forget about it and learn keyword research first. Please go with keyword with low to medium competition not with high search count like in you example.
    There's some good keyword research tutorials here, go to the profiles of those members and look for the threads they started and you will find some good tutorials.

    Next time please read he said he cant post links or pictures.

    This niche will be hard by looking at it i see top 3 are big authority sites with huge amount of backlinks to the page. Try something else because you will most likely fail at this unless you want to spend years trying to rank for it.

    No mate, give this one a miss unless you have plenty of cash. Where did you get the figures from? Are you using Market Samurai? If you are I imagine there was a lot of red on the seo competition page!

    Where'd you get the low competition figure 0.21 from?

    He is using traffic travis to check the competition. low competition.21 is google adword competition.

    Which is a newbie mistake too. I wish I got a pound for every time I saw someone use broad search results and Adwords competition for their keyword research, I'd be very rich now.
