Admittedly the title is a bit exaggerated to get your attention, but as you can probably tell I'm a bit new to all this (reading the forums for around 2 weeks) and would appreciate any help to tell if this niche could be profitable. From what I've read/watched, a good keyword is something that... 1- Has between 5,000-100,000 monthly searches 2- Has less than, or around, 2,000,000 results when searched in Google 3- Has some competition (but not a lot) on the first page and 4- Can be monetized in some fashion Now I believe I've found something that fits into this criteria, however I have a couple of worries. There are a few keywords that apply to this niche all giving similar results in the mentioned criteria, but am I suppose to add them all together (add all their monthly searches/Google results) to get a truer number and idea? Also, the results which appear on google are just the stores selling the product (one of which I will affiliate to) but the sites selling all have a moz rank around 4.5~ which I've heard is quite high and tough to beat, should I worry about this? Sorry, I won't be revealing my keyword(s) just in case I'm on to something. Providing this is a go, is this a solid plan of action to reach slot 1 or 2 on google or is this method dead/not possible? 1- Get keyword relalted domain, and hosting 2- Install word press (of which I have little exeperience) and a good theme 3- Learn more about SEO and how to apply it to articles 4- Write 10+ quality articles on the niche 5- Upload articles and non-copywrite pictures 6- Get and learn to "hide" (clean looking, not a link with 3 lines worth of extensions) affiliate link 7- Start social sites related to the site and build a following 8- Learn more about back links and page rank 9- Start a PPC ad campaign Sorry if it appears that I'm wanting to be spoon fed, this to me just seems like a solid plan from what I've read (providing I can pull it off), but don't want to waste loads of time and a bit of money if I've missed something really obvious. I appreciate and tips/help. Apology on the length. Thanks!
