    Hey everyone I found an exact match keyword with 1000 monthly GLOBAL searches and I wanted to monetize this by creating a website for it. I want to create a single page website with an article on it so would you recommend I build my own site (ie a .com and hosting) or just stick to sites like squidoo since its only a one page site to make it easier to rank higher in google?

    Unless you are pretty certain that you can put that into the top 3 of google with ease and the cpc is a reasonable return then I would keep looking for a better Keyword. Havent bothered with Squidoo in years but I see some guys talking about reasonable returns but only if they have several hundred Lenses..if you know what you are doing on squidoo and it only takes you an hour then might be worth a go there.

    The reason I'm not too attracted to the concept of building a website and purchasing a domain because its only a low volume search domain and ranking a .com is a lot harder than a squidoo lens or a webs website

    Go with squidoo.
    Have a minimum of 4 modules, preferably a video as well.
    Build links slowly (Squidoo seem to be checking inbound link velocity to new lenses and closing accounts that hit them too hard)

    Worth a go though. It's only 2 hours work even if you make your own video in Animoto or wherever.
