    Hello,

    I know how to make keyword researching,
    but i asked me, what kind of volume is the best research
    to get top rankings.

    How many exact searches / month is the best to get a good position in search engines?

    Best regards,
    sHenZi :)

    This is completely dependent on what kind of work you want to do... look at the competition, then look at the local exact search volume... if the competition is high and the search volume is low - you are probably right - don't go for it.

    As a rule of thumb, when I export keyword lists I remove everything that is greater than .65 competition (unless it has a ridiculous search volume) and anything under 1k monthly local searches.

    A good friend here recently told me "the money is in the amount of keywords you have"

    -I suggested making a site that was 20-30 pages focused on 20-30 keywords - he said I need to be aiming for a site to have 100-200 pages.

    I know I rambled a little but this is really a complicated question that has to do with how much work you want to do

    I usually look for <1000 EM's per month and check the competition from there. You can save yourself a lot of time this way.
