    You don't need to speculate.

    Open a wordpress account, post an article, look at the traffic

    It's light white hat

    If your keyword has no competition, your website is indexed then yes. Well maybe. Depends.
    However it's impossible to find any keywords with no competitions, the ones you WILL find aren't even worth working on because at max you'll get a 50 extra visitors a month on the #1 spot.

    You can manually build backlinks and try to rank for the keywords, simply relying on Google is not good enough. Heck you already spent time and money creating the site, why not put a little more effort and research keywords beforehand and work on raking them when the site is up and running.

    According to Matt Cutts, yes! However if this was the case, why would BHW exist? (or at least the SEO sections)

    Yes. I am ranking articles without off-site SEO work. You need a really good article covering all the angles of the given topic. No, don't count words. That's wrong.

    You need to write an article that will cover everything on the topic in one article. It can be anywhere between 700 and 3,000 words. Don't think about SEO when you're writing it. Think about a guy that is searching what you're writing about.

    I know this sounds like MaCu but it works in 70% of cases. I mean, you won't (probably) hit No.1 spot but you'll be there in top 20. If that's your goal, of course, to be in top 20. You will get visitors searching for random KWs that you covered in your article, and since you covered everything regarding this topic, that will be a lot of KWs

    You sound EXACTLY like MaCu. Have you been taken over by his brain machine?
