    The exact search volume monthly is 4400 and the #1 result is not an EMD. All the EMDs are taken but are not in the top 100. The EMD's have been purchased by a squatter.

    The CPC is $1.49 and the adwords comp is very low. The KW is targeting a niche demographic of artists. I would like to sell them an eBook and make money off ad-sense or affiliate links.

    Do you think I should leave this KW alone? Is the backlinks my biggest hill to climb?

    I am interested to know how many people listen to Traffic Travis's advice as well. I find it quite accurate most of the time myself. Would like to hear from others.

    I don't use Traffic Tavis (I use MS) but YES! you should listen to it and don't even look at that niche again,
    you'll need an aged domain and a couple of thousands to break in the top 10.

    Not really worth the money for just 4K local searches IMO.

    4400 is about 75 visits a day if you are #1. You won't even make a dollar a day.
