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!
