    I have a question

    If a keyword competition is high with local monthly searches of 10k+, it will be difficult to rank for it.
    If a keyword competition is high with local monthly searches of <1k, will it be similar on the difficulty to rank for it or is the competition much much lower?

    I have around 50 low-medium keywords with search volumes ranging from 1k (Some are <1k) to <5k.. Any ideas on how i can do this cheaply? Cause i was looking at the services on BHW and im definitely not going to want to spend USD$400 on 10 keywords per month because the competition is low and easier to rank for. Also, i dont wish to destroy my site as these are premium domains that are very expensive to get.

    Rayee,

    It depends on where you are getting this information from. If you are using the keyword planner, the competition is misleading. That number in the planner has to do with competition in AdWords and not the web as a whole.

    Search for your terms in Google with quotes and note the number of results returned.

    Based on the search volume, it sounds like the first one will be moderately difficult to rank for. The seond one doesn't sound like it will be.

    To do it cheaply, you will have to do it yourself. Keep in mind good seo is not cheap. It is tedious and time consuming work and cheap services that are good are rare.

    Best,

    Shawn

    Thanks for the information but like you said, its tedious and time consuming. I noted the expensive services in BHW are those that can rank < 1 month. I could use up 3 months to rank for the low competition kws and maybe even lesss cause theres no competition at all. Any suggestions?
