    Hello Guys,

    Just have a query.

    Well, I have researched a keyword and it is getting around 2400 monthly searches (low competitive) as per keyword planner.

    Now when I search that keyword with quotes ("my keyword") on google, it is throwing around 36 results (4 pages total)

    Is that keyword competitive or easy to rank?

    Yep go for it. Before someone else finds it... In fact you gave out too much information already. Someone might have got it already....

    Sorry if I'm hijacking this thread but I have found a couple of those myself. I'm ranking (If I couldn't even do that I would just give up on everything, lol) but I'm not sure if it's cost efficient the way I do it. Basically I rank solely on manual web 2.0-s and 3-4 relevant blog comments on pr blogs, but this way it takes me 2-3 days of work.

    Can it get even easier? Does anyone have such experience? :)

    The most important thing is if this word has ANY commercial potential. Maybe you can rank it in a day, but it won't cover even the hosting and domain costs... Think about it before you do anything.

    36 results means that there aren't many sites on the web targeting or mentioning that particular keyword, which means it is not popular and consequently has little SERP competition. It should be easy to rank for.

    Obviously it should potentially be easy to rank, unless the entire SERP contains authority sites all targeting the exact phrase.

    Keep in mind that just because a keyword is easy, doesn't mean its worth ranking for. Also, assess how profitable it would be - because all keywords are definitely not created equal. If it isn't worth the work, then find something else. There are a decent amount of good keywords that aren't TOO hard to rank for, but will still require work.

    But sounds to me like you're just trying to get your feet wet, so I'd go for it just for the experience.

    Also keep in mind that just because there are not a lot of search results, doesn't mean it is a worthless pursuit. It sounds corny, but the saying 'the riches are in the niches' is often true.
