    Hi sorry if it's in the wrong section.

    Going to start my first micro niche site, and i did a bit of keyword research. And found a keyword I'll like to use, the competition is high with 1000 exact global searches with a cpc of £2.10.

    The EMD is available for the keyword.

    Will this be good for my first micro niche site?

    Cheers

    If the competition is high it will be harder for you to rank for that keyword (kind of stating the obvious). And at 1000 EM searches, if you hit #1 for your keyword you are looking at around 500 hits/month (not everyone clicks on the 1st link, statistically about 50% ish do). Click-through-rates (ctrs) are usually 2%, so that's about 10 people clicking on your link, which is about 20 Euros. Since this is your 1st micro niche site, I'd say go for it and if it doesn't work out learn from the experience as much as possible.

    I would not recommend you to build a site with few info try to make it an authority website to gain more traffic and earn more.Also research a keyword with 3k+ searches,EMD is not a must now a days.

    Please guys, if you're just starting out, don't try to give him advice. You obviously don't understand some things.

    To the OP: If you researched the keyword with Google Keyword Tool and it said that the competition is high, that means that a lot of advertisers are bidding for that keyword (advertising competition is high). It doesn't have anything to do with how difficult it is to rank the keyword.

    Try looking at the first 10 results for "keyword" (with ""). Check those 10 sites in Ahrefs, SemRush or wherever and see what their backlink profiles are like. If they have very little backlinks or poor quality backlinks, that means you could probably "easily" rank it.

    Home Page:
    you need to try and establish how much competition there is for the keyword - not adwords competition, but what your actual competitors sites are like.
    there are lots of tools out there that will do this.

    Also, as IamBlackhatter said, dont just try and build your site specifically for that term, have a goal of making it an authority site.

    My advice would be to build a big list of keywords before you start - keep your main keyword, but also have a content plan and create articles regularly based on your big (longtail) keyword list.

    that way, you will find that you'll probably start ranking a lot of sub pages before you rank your main keyword, and you will get some traffic and revenue from these in the short term.

    But also, they will give your site much more credibility and help you to rank for your main keyword.

    Congrats on choosing your niche. That alone took me ages!

    If you have confidence in it, there is no reason at all you couldn't make it work, but it also depends on your expectations. What do you want back from it?

    EMD is highly desirable, and to be honest I wouldn't bother with anything else. I work for some real estate companies, and those with locations (sandiegoproperty for example) in the URL always get quicker and generally (for me at least) better results. But it all varies depending on niche competition.

    My advice: Enjoy it, but dont spend too much time on it. The best thing you will get out of it is experience...

    You can't really do it wrong. My advice would be to take in the advice given in this thread as you will and go for it, a step at a time. Research particular things you're curious about as you go along. Action is the best tutorial.

    Wish you the utmost

    I'd go with a 20-30 pages site - otherwise you are just waiting for the next refresh to take your domain -500.

    Think it will, since it's not big competition as a start yes later scale up on some bigger projects :)

    Micro niche can't make good amount right now better try with Authority websites. Or make 5 or more micro niche to get decent amount of $$
