    I want to build a Product Review Site and it´s my first IM Project ever.
    Its a niche Market and the Products are expensive (150-2000$).
    I can choose between Amazon.de or an other german Merchant who pays 10% commission.

    I already did some research on the keyword with MarketSamurai and also checked the Competiton of the best Keywords.

    I dont want to tell you the real Product/Keyword, so I just call it "Car"

    I've got the most searches and SEOV on Car, Cars and Truck.
    But they also got the most competiton and I think that they could be to general.

    The next Keyword is "Car Test". Its my favorite Keyword because the AWCTR is more than twice as high and there is less competition.
    At the other site, the competition is very specific and there are 2 other Affiliate Review Sites.

    I made a Citiation Flow Analysis of the No. 1 Affiliate in "Car Test"

    He's got 2 links from 31-40 (how can I compare this with Pagerank?) from an Car Blog and an Affiliate Review Blog.
    He also got 4 links from 21-30. One from the same Car Blog, on from an other Affiliate Blog, 2 from one Car Forum.

    The 290 from 0-10 and the 160 from 11-20 were from the same 2 Blogs already mentioned (with 31-40, why are links from the same Blog rated so different?) execpt 4 links from other small Homepages.

    I read many Threads and watched some Videos about Keyword Analysis and assessing the competiton.
    I think that i did the right steps for the analysis, but I am an newbie and its still hard for me to understand what the results really mean.

    What do you think about?

    I would be very thankful for every advice how to interprete the results to find out how much work or money i have to invest to rank my site!
