    I have been struggling recently to find a good keyword to target and seem to keep running into brick walls everywhere I go. To the point where I feel I'm over analysing (paralysis by analysis syndrome) the keywords.

    So I ask all Market Samurai users what is your Keyword Research & SEOC Criteria you look for before deciding on targeting a niche keyword?

    Here's Mine

    Searches - I usually go for around 100 SEOT per day
    SEOC - <100000
    SEOTC - <10000

    What do you do when SEOTC out weighs the number of SEOC pages so you end up with an SEOTCR of say for example 800%

    Domain Age - I look for as young as possible
    PR - <4
    IC - Is this really a factor?
    BLP - Low as possibly however how do you evaulate a mix across the top 10?
    BLD - Again is this really a factor if you have an exact match domain as I seem to keep hitting sites with millions of BLD's


    Regarding backlinks what do you do if a site ranking in the top 10 has extremely high BLD whilst at the same time has extremely low BLP?


    Also what other URL's do you like to see in the top 10. (For example: other similar sites to what you want to build, Ezine Articles, Amazon etc etc)


    It would be good to get some others views on how they evaluate when looking for keywords to target as I just seem to be getting bogged down with trying to find a keyword I might be able to rank for. I've spent most of this weekend in Market Samurai and still haven't found anything yet!

    Well I would want to see what others say, I think blp are most important and u can see angela's article for backlinks is very high because it has huge blp, i think blp matters as well as bld, and if site has bld it can rank for anything even without much blp? that's my view but I want to see what others say.

    This is really helpful and great the way he explains what he is thinking about the information returned.

    Its a shame it cuts off at the end, is there a part 2? I couldn't find anything.

    When researching I use PBR=15, SEOTCR=50, SEOT=50
