    I have gotten my first site on the 2nd page in Google and the first page Yahoo for 3 terms.

    I bought MNF after creating the site and just did some keyword analysis using it.

    Please look at my MNF results

    I am concerned maybe I picked a keyword with too little traffic.

    I'd like to hear what you all think.

    Would you continue to go after this? (Please explain why in either case)

    Definatly too small amount of searches. I usually go for 15k+ keywords.

    A minimum of 10k+ for keywords or the time compared to return is just not there

    There are not enough searches to make any money. I figure you have two options here.
    1. Change the direction of the site and go with some other search if you can. Not sure cause I don't know the site.

    2. Sell the site on DP and start over with something else.

    Sorry man, but atleast you took action. Move on. Do better keyword research before you even purchase your domain next time. If you need some help you can PM me and I will do my best to answer any questions you may have.

    Given that this is my first site, I guess the news isn't that bad. I had to learn somewhere, right? Plus, I have made 63 cents on 3 AdSense clicks :whoo:

    So, twix70 and Satyren, as always - I appreciate the responses. You both mentioned the number of searches...

    Is this the number of Global or Local searches - and for Exact or Phrase?

    Since I have a bunch of related articles out there, I think I'll keep the site and just hope for some traffic now and again.

    Initially, I did not have MNF or MS and did keyword research using AdWords. I misunderstood the results (which showed 33,000 searches). :eek:

    Thanks for the PM offer - much appreciated.

    Taking action is always a good thing. I use exact global mostly, and then use exact local to judge if a keyword is trending down or seasonal, something I try to stay away from.

    If you can find other related keywords that get more searches, I'd consider building the site out a bit if you can do it quickly. If it's going to be too time-consuming, just move on.

    Do you still use those keywords if you don't get a green light but an exclamation sign instead from MNF?
    All the 10k+ keywords I see usually have exclamations.
