    Hi BHW

    I am doing some keyword research but I am unsure how to find low competition keywords. This is a brand new niche site. I am in the tattoo niche and I go to google keyword planner and find this keyword.

    [​IMG]

    a google and search with moz toolbar

    [​IMG]

    There are some images, the sites that are ranking seem to have very low PA but DA is so so to very strong. Would these be a decent niche page that I could rank with a brand new site and just strong on page seo?

    Also another example is something from a different niche, food.

    [​IMG]

    another google search

    [​IMG]

    This one about food would seem to be impossible but I am not sure.

    Could I rank in the tattoo niche that I showed above without any backlinks and strong on page seo?

    Could I rank in the carb niche without any backlinks and strong on page seo?

    If I couldn't rank in either case, how could I refine my keyword or do better keyword research to find keywords that I could rank for in these niches?

    Hey the no carb diet foods keyword is gonna be pretty tough, the tattoo piercing is definitely possible though but either way you'd have to build some links. If you need help with keyword research you can take the free trial of our tool in my signature. It may help with what you are looking for.

    That's a pretty interesting tool you have. I signed up and will be checking out the demo for a bit.

    In my report, the tattoo keyword is pretty easy to get rank up easily by simple seo. If you need to check the keyword difficulty just use spyfu if you cant spend money or get keywordrevealer or any other tools on Fiverr at 5$.

    jackteam, I am new with not a lot to invest money wise. I have time and patience and can write fairly well. When you say simple seo, can you elaborate more on how you would tackle this? Are you talking about on page seo, keyword density, tags, title, meta description, images, alt tags videos, content quality and internal links?

    Would you recommend anything else?

    hey mate try the semrush and longtail pro, if you think the price for the software is too high, just rent the software from fiverr or seoclersk, then only you get the better keywords, its shows like low competitive but it's not possible to rank, don't waste your time with this,

    Thank you.

    Yes more or less correct. If the competitors having bad on page seo and no backlinks on particular keyword, you can defeat them in good ON-PAGE-SEO. But seems that the competitors having high DA so they might have good on page SEO but dont have backlinks. Here you can defeat them by using 2 ore 3 guest post or 4 or 5 Power PBN links.

    Thank you for the reply. I don't have a budget yet, I will manually work through this and try to pick up a few keywords and write great articles about them and try to rank. I will reach out and see if I can get some back links to the articles through guest postings on relevant sites.

    For Tattoo niche minimum number of link building is enough to get good ranking position on google.

    But for Carb niche you have to build more backlinks with different services, like high authority links, Real Niche related Guest posts as a Tier 1 and to build some PBN links as Tier 2.

    Can I ask another question about keyword research and competition.

    Google keyword planner
    [​IMG]

    A google search with mozbar
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The results for the first page. Look at the top of the list, there are sites there ranking for this term "vegan workout" are not optimized for the term at all but they have very high da/pa but I find this result interesting.
    [​IMG]
    It's a very old blog post from 2011 with no real links in moz.
    [​IMG]

    From my guess this could be ranking either
    1) The site has a PBN behind it with cloacked links.
    2) It is the only page that is actually somewhat optimized for the actual keyword.

    The moz toolbar shows that this site is pretty unoptimized on page wise.
    [​IMG]


    For all the more advanced people here, what would you say is the issue with this result? Is this site ranking because of a PBN, is it the on page seo? Any thoughts?

    I don't think it needs pbn to rank no 9, no 10 definitely is not targeted the word "vegan workout" at all.

    tattoo niche is easy to rank but hard to monetize so i would suggest you to stay away from it as you are starting out and will get frustrated if you see traffic but no revenue. only offers available for tattoo is tattoo removal offers and some that pays $0.80 so do if you want to get into such things.

    You can pm me your email id, i will share a login details with you of a course it will definitely help you understand this. :)

    login details for what service?

    Also what about the adsense, when you say pays $0.80 is that CPC or RPM?

    I said it's a COURSE about keyword research. I paid for it and require username and password to watch the videos. i can't share it with forum as it's on DO NOT SHARE list.
    CPA offers.

    Very much doubt the latter URL you mention has any PBN links behind it. The profile in majestic of the root domain looks pretty weak overall:

    [​IMG]

    It's an old site - which is probably part of the reason it's up there (age)

    All the sites above look like they are ranking due to overall domain authority.

    I'm not in the vegan niche, I guess it's pretty competitive. "Vegan workout" isn't particularly. That doesn't mean stick up a brand new site, a little bit of on page and you will be there (you probably won't)

    Would it really be worth targeting + spending time and money on is the question you need to try and answer. Is this part of a bigger project? Or are you just looking for a few terms to target with a small site?

    Actually I am into fitness - health niche but I was trying to figure out how to do proper keyword research. I wrote 5 articles already in another niche [before i found the moz toolbar] and was tracking them. Over a week after the pages indexed and not one of them ranked, not even in the top 300. Even though the google keyword planner said the keywords only had around 100 global monthly searches.

    After I found the moz toolbar I started to just search different ideas because I was lost. I found two that I though would make for a great comparison so I asked here. I noticed that a lot of sites rank even when they have no keywords in their meta description and I didn't know why.

    @vishalgmistry shared some info with me that I am looking at now, it's really helping me a lot and I will try to figure out what is going on. I though with keywords with such low volume it should be easy to rank; I was wrong.

    @PBN345 if you care to take a look at this and share again. I was watching a program and took a look at this keyword "best blender for the money" and saw this
    [​IMG]

    I still have a few moz daily site credit so I took a look at number 3 and this is what it came up

    [​IMG]

    okay so another ranking that seems to be out of place, this one has a lot of junk in the meta tags but nothing that would seem to make it rank so highly. Is it using a PBN or just ranking because that is such a long tail keyword?
