    So this is my first venture into niche markets and EMD's...my keyword has 880 exact global searches and 590 local monthly searches with low competition. this is a topic i know a lot about so i'm kind of excited to see what i can do..are those search figures worth it, though? i didn't really do any other keyword search though, kind if a blind fire i suppose. not really sure how to do keyword research yet. opinions?

    Even at double it's still pretty low. I will only buy an EMD if the keyword has AT LEAST 1500 exact searches but they usually have over 5k. Still though, make the site anyway, no use letting it go to waste. Good luck making some cash bro!

    yeah, that is fairly low. As xxf8xx, 5k+ would obviously be better, but I've noticed that once you start hitting that range, there is decent competition.

    In the past, I generally have targeted 1600 to 2500 searches a month. Once I rank top 3, I make around $2-$5 a day from that type of search volume. I would avoid 5k+ search terms if you're a beginner.
