    I`m looking to make my first MNS, I have spent alot of time choosing my three main keywords, and in total their is 2.5k+ searches globally and around 1.5k of those are local (United States)

    This is a very easy achievable #1 rank with very little competition, should I aim for keywords with more traffic? Or just dive in because it can be easily achieved, even if Adsense makes $40 a month, its in the profit...

    What sort of traffic would satisfy you for an MNS with very little competition

    1500 exact local with with very little competition is really good! I usually prefer keywords with exact local more than 1000 and target 4 or 5 other related long tail keywords in addition.

    It all depends on competition. I target 1K+ for internal pages. For the homepage/money page, I usually go for bigger numbers. But it really comes down to how profitable the keyword will be.

    I would rather have 500 visitors coming for "buy iphone 4" than 2000 for "iphone 4 review". All depends on the site and how you're making money on it.

    1000+ exact searches is good. But remember that if you gain position 1 for this keyword you'll have near 50% of this traffic. Pos. 2 - 30% and position 6-10 will get you 10-20% of this traffic.

    Thanks for all the information! Golden! :D

    Also the CPC is low, does the CPC indicate what I will get paid per adsense click? The CPC is around $0.15, is that awful for Adsense?

    Sorry for the silly questions, but I won`t learn otherwise! :eek:

    The CPC is awful, you should be aiming for >$1.

    Ultimately, remember this too: do not leave your sites at between 1 and 5 pages or you risk being slapped on a manual review. Aim to get them each to 20 pages as soon as you can. This will only multiple your efforts too.

    My project goes like this:

    stage 1: sites up and running, one home page. made 30 sites (25 would have been ok though).
    stage 2: get content up to 20 pages on each = 600 total articles (would have been happy with 500 on 20 domains though).
    stage 3: add more content and create more sites. Outsourcing probably becomes necessary at this point.

    For 1000+ Exact, you will get tons of EMD's and they are quite easy to rank. If you do a bit of keyword research then you can easily find available EMD's with more than 2000 Exacts. I personally look for available EMD's above 5000 Exact.
