    I am trying to grasp the method for finding niche keyword, i have attached a screenshot of Market Samurai Competition analysis Matrix. I would appreciate any advice for the decision to take after considering the matrix.
    thanks

    Once you find a keyword you think you like, you should then go and look at the competition. If page one is full of four year old sites with xxxxxxxx number of links to them, you're better off looking for another keyword. Identifying potential keywords is only the first part of the process

    It's definitely a possible entry. For a fresh site, it's going to be tough, unless you have a dead-on domain name. Some of those sites have a ton of links going directly to the page, which is kind of a no way. I'd say look for an easier one with easier competition, unless you have the dead-on com net or org. Good luck.

    No, there are much much MUCH easier pickings elsewhere. I wouldn't even bother with this.

    Honestly if this is your first niche website ever, I would say no. That also depends on the exact monthly searches and how you are going to monetize this website. If you would like more help, provide a little more information without giving it away.

    Well since this looks as authority pages are your competition there are two possible scenarios:
    1) You can rank but it would take some months if no experience
    2) Your keyword is not the one they are targetting

    What you should do:

    Take a look at SEO SpyGlass. It will show you how many of the links are anchor texted with your keyword. If it's none or close to none, go for it. Also if there are quite a few, see what their PR, domain age etc are. That should give you your answer.

    Hello,
    I have launched the site few months ago, it is indexed on google, and it is online shop site (products titles are not unique, and description too...). I did not drop a single link anywhere to promote it. I got a list of forums (registration + approx 2 messages on each, maybe 200 forums,, minimum PR3). I thought starting from here, but i doubt it is sufficient to rank for such keyword....maybe i should dig more.
    thanks
    Yaz
    Thanks again

    If you buy exact keyword domain you can rank with bing/yahoo but I think it is too hard to rank in google with reasonable time and money invested
