    Havn't been in SEO for that long yet and I everything cept my Competition research seems to be going great. I just found a great keyword for a micro niche (I think) and wanted to rank for it. Could you guys tell me how hard or easy it would be?

    [EXACT]
    Global Searches: 1300
    Local Searches: 1300
    Approximate CPC: ?14.89

    Intitle: 783 Intitle+Inurl: 64
    .com .net .org - Available (6 Words 18 Characters)

    Traffic Travis: "Medium Difficulty"
    Market Samurai: -> http://i.imgur.com/VRQlU.jpg
    Keyword Elite Competition Strength: 25

    This should be easy right? What would you guys say are the most important things to look at in Market Samurai when I do my research?

    Just registered the Domain, thanks!

    So another question. I know that these keywords shouldn't be that hard to beat, but they are micro niches so there isn't that much competition. But at what point am I crossing the line between easy and hard to beat? What kind of stats on Marketsamurai should I mind when I do my research?

    For example another one which I think that might be harder to rank.

    [EXACT]
    Global Searches: 1300
    Local Searches: 880
    Approximate CPC: €8.64

    Intitle: 298 Intitle+Inurl: 45
    .com .net .org - Available (4 Words 19 Characters)

    I'd say look at the SEOC and SEOTC in Market Samurai. I go with the guideline of under 60K for SEOC and under 20k for SEOTC. Anything over that you have a lot more competition so it might be a little harder to rank.

    Looks like it should be fairly easy. At least try it.

    Your research looks sound for those keywords. I'd go ahead and try ranking for both. Add a few other keywords for your site so that you set up a diversified amount of potential traffic streams.

    dude those keywords should be really easy to rank for!! i mean, almost no backlinks to the sites on the front page, really low intitle and inurl numbers, and from what i see on the MS screenshots the top 10 arent even optimized for the kw.

    For competition I only look top 10 resutls. If there is a authority site internal links i will go fr it. for example yahoo answer and wiki page link give me a some motivation to buy the domain.
