    OK, when someone searches for "free photos", do you think they're actually looking to buy any?

    Well, considering that the first page of search results is pretty much filled up with PR5-PR7 pages you can safely say that traffic you're not going to see in the next 3 years without a help of an expert.

    Don't take it as a screw-up, take it as a trampoline - people who dont make mistakes are people who dont act.

    The keyword is really competitive. Not a good choice for a beginner. Find some better keywords and write individual blog posts around them example:free photos of vintage trucks

    As lecca suggested, its better to start from a less broad term, then slowly expand. Traffic from less popular keywords will keep you motivated to continue.

    In other words, what the other posters are saying is you are 6 layers away (Page Rank 7) from attracting the swarms of customers
    you want to attract.
    It's all about positioning. How can you position yourself and what you have in a torrent of traffic and what are some of the biggest traffic flows
    online?
    Facebook
    Youtube
    Craigslist
    Squidoo
    You can think of others. Social platforms that are so huge they rival [email protected] in search activity.
    Twitter
    Amazon
    Yahoo Groups
    A search of this forum shows ways these platforms are being used to earn. How can you link what you now do, or want to do, to that flow of income? :cool:

    what about backlinks? wouldn't they help me?
    I don't need 1 mil visitors /month:)) ...but 2-3k would be more than enough for a start to get motivated
    Also I was thinking to start with facebook and youtube...but I wanted to see some traffic from google first

    The keyword is really competitive so you'll have to invest a lot of money in advertising.

    I personally never saw any good traffic from Facebook or Youtube, its barely 0.1% of the traffic I'm getting from Google. I have been trying to improve that number without success for over a year. Even when things became viral the traffic I got wasn't converting.

    It might be I am bad with social networks, but I tend to believe that Facebook, Youtube and alike require a very careful choice of niche. So my advice, stick with Google and waste time with social networks only when you have a time to waste.

    The competition you see in Google Adwords tool has nothing to do with SEO. It reflects the bidding costs on Adwords.

    Adwords is an auction, the more competition the more you will pay per click. So theoretically its possible to find keywords with high adwords competition but low SEO competition, and vise versa.

    Yeah ... such a highly competitive word ... Though. why are you moving only to it?. Here, for example, typing a word in semrush, I got a list of words similar topics: free photo editing software, stock photos free, free photo software, paint, free pics and a lot of words. Can see yourself ... they have also good indicators.

    If you have bought the domain and really gave decided to go for "free photos" niche, I would suggest you to pick some long tail keywords, rank them start getting some traffic and money.
    Reinvest the money to increase the authority of your website and at the same time targeting other keywords.
    Rinse and repeat until you get your goal ;)
