    Hi there
    It's almost a month that after reading your inspiring posts, I'm sitting in front of Google keyword tool in search of something good.
    Today I was playing with some random keywords and reading the keywords idea I got a two words keyword combination (call it "the foo") with 11.100.000 global monthly searches and low competition.

    I rapidly checked for the EMS domains and I found the _net and _org available; without thinking twice I've bought them.

    Checking the first page result on google, I don't see the _com but just the _co_za with PR2.
    The other results are partial match domains.

    Now, to get to the gist:
    do I have something good in my hands or am I too excited and it's difficult to get all that traffic?
    Do I need to concentrate to just one domain (redirecting one to the other) or is it better to create two different sites?

    Do you have any advice?
    I'm a good programmer\web developer and I can put some stuff online pretty fast.

    If the competition is low it will be relatively easy to rank on the keywords yes - especially when you have domains containing the exact keywords.

    Other factors such as domain age etc. of course plays in too, so it also depends on how sophisticated the algorithm for calculating competition is in the software you used.

    Without a lot of hardcore competition, some great exact keyword domains and good unique quality content that is rich in keywords, you should be going great. What kind of traffic is it - are they likely to buy specific types of products? Are they looking for a lot of information on specific subjects?
    You have to find out how the traffic should me monetized.

    Another option is to sell the domains right away - they sound good, and if other people think so too they shuld be easy to sell :) adding content and ranking the domains will ofcourse make you earn even more.

    ^ don't talk to me about this... I literally lost 6 months HARD work over this when I started out... fucking broke my heart.

    By the way OP, there's alot more to IM than just buying a keyword strong domain... like is the keyword worth money? are people searching for a solution or affiliate product?

    Your still gona need backlinks, general offpage and onpage SEO and monetize your site... consider the domain simply a small bonus.

    It's easy to say that I have to learn a lot of things in this field :rolleyes:.
    11,100,000 global monthly searches refers to the broad search,
    phrase search is just 14,800 and exact search is something I'm embarrassed to say.

    18$ for the first lesson of keyword searching, not bad!

    thank you guys :p

    Well, domain plays a very less role in improving rankings of your website.
    Since you got domain of your choice, utilize it in the best way by publishing quality content and getting quality backlinks.
