    Hey guys. I'm making a keyword competition checker for a school project. So far it can only check a few metrics to determine competition and can only do one keyword at a time. I have plans to make it mass check keywords as well as scrape LSIs and check comp for those keywords. Also have plans for proxy support (obviously). Anyway, I am interested in what features you guys would be interested in as I will release it to the community once it is finished or I run out of time to work on it.

    I am also very interested in what metrics you guys would use to judge competition as best as possible. So far I am using:
    -top 10 domain ages
    -top 10 PR
    -Keyword Search Competition
    -Keyword intitle Search Competition

    Planning to implement:
    -Check hard/easy to beat sites (Hard: .gov, .edu, etc... Easy: Yahoo Answers, Web 2.0s, etc...)
    -Others I can't think of off hand right now

    Ok. Fire away!

    Cheers,
    xxf8xx

    Multithreaded! Proxies supported! DMOZ entry true or false. But best: whether the top 3 have the keyword intitle * have the keyword in meta * have the keyword in the url * have the keyword bolded/italicized/h1/h2 etc. in the landing page * are EMD or Domain contains keyword (+ a score deduction on how many chars the domain has more than the keyword).

    -Multithreaded will most likely be the last thing implemented if I get that far.
    -Proxy implementation will be early as it is a must
    -DMOZ is a good idea!
    -Instead of only checking the top 3 it will check all top 10 for what you have mentioned. I will try to implement that!

    Thanks for the great response/ideas. I will try and get all of these implemented!

    Right. I forgot to mention back link count haha. Of course this is a must!

    Cheers,

    EDIT: I also need help on the ranking system itself. How would you score things in your head if you were to do this manually? What things have more weight than others? What ranges of competition is easy, medium, difficult, etc...? I will tweak it as best as I can but I need the community's help to come up with what people actually want in this program.
