    Does SEO get easier? Do I have to keep blasting backlinks or do I need less to rank? Never had a toy like this, always had to rank lower volumes. Any advice or ideas?

    Exact match. Not close, exact. 5 million searches a month globally about half that U.S.

    and that's an "exact" search not "broad" on adwords keyword tool?

    now its time to start creating backlinks, and great content for that domain

    since you will probably have very tough competitors, i would recommend 1000 word articles, and a kick ass link building strategy.

    I'm guessing you spent like $20,000+ on this domain and bought it privately or off a network like Sedo. So you've spent this much money and have no idea on what to do? Millions of searches, is going to take months if not years to rank for. Perhaps you should be contacting the professionals of the forum privately to look over a plan for developing your SEO.

    To be honest, I highly doubt you bought an exact match domain. Or perhaps you did buy it was probably a .cr or something that no one ever uses. .com/net/org or sometimes .info are all you want, and those would cost a ton of money for a keyword this size, because they certainly are not available.

    Curious on your response.

    I think you should start from building a nice webpage. Creating/buying some interesting and keyword stuffed materials, putting them together with a decent web design and making some on site seo optimizations.
    And than start building links...

    Good luck,
    D

    Exact match .com, traffic levels measured by exact match?

    For competitive terms an EMD isn't going to work any sort of magic for you. The difference probably wouldn't be noticeable. For terms with very little competition they rank easily.

    For the exact match. $11.99. 5 million searches per month. Not screwing with you guys. Now that the incredullity is out of the way, what to do to rank it fast?

    I might be easier to offer suggestions if we had an idea of what type of niche/industry this particular domain is in. For instance, is it insurance related, downloads/music related, adult related, etc.?

    My guess is he bought "because.com" or something like that.

    Dead-on domains rank a lot easier, but it may take a little bit depending on your competition. Full on page optimization and build links like you normally would.

    Good luck.

    PS> My record for a dead-on .com was only 60k spm; I'm jealous of your 5mil.

    With the discount I paid $1.99. I spent hours searching.

    Your hours searching are worthless. Buddyboy has PMed me the domain, its in a competitive niche. It seems you really lack keyword research skills, don't worry 90% of the members on here can't do it.

    It has 5,000,000 broad searches, and 36 exact searches. So your domain is worthless. 36 searches, well done. xD
    So lets say 50% click, so 18 click. 5% so 1 click. So $0.50 per month after you put thousands into SEO.

    Really hard to find a top domain name. I found some good keyword domains but only in .biz. You have to get a bit lucky to stumble across one.

    Not applying what's constantly said on the forums I guess lol. Any exact match you can find of 10k+ searches a month should be check'd to make sure it's exact or not a trademark... They pretty much are all taken.

    EMD's in competitive niches aren't that big of an advantage btw, when fighting people with hundreds of backlinks and age it takes a while for your newly registered EMD to stand a chance ( IMO)

    Man I even pointed out that you had to have the "exact" box ticked and you still couldn't figure it out? :S Oh well, people often make that mistake once.

    This is not totally true, I have found multiple 12k+ exact match .org domains, not trademarked and I've only been looking for about a week, you just have to be creative and stop using stupid stereotypes like weight loss etc. There are many practical day to day activities (software or real life related) that get plenty of searches per month but nobody thinks of them cos they just take it for granted or they can't think outside the square.
    And no, i'm not a failure that leaves the "broad" checkbox ticked and thinks "ZOMG just found a 10mill exact keyword domain!"
