    I was on my niche hunt, and found something with keywords as low as 500 searches per month. Is that too low? I would assume that the lower the views, the less competition; however, there has got to be a point of middle ground right?

    Thanks.

    The best thing to use those low competition and low search niches for is quantity of sites. Use autoblogs or something like that where you can pretty much dominate all the low competition keywords.. That way you will get a majority of the searches for all those small keywords..

    Make a page for each keyword. You can even use the exact same page promoting whatever product. just optimize it for a different keyword

    I have had that question on my mind for a long time. I ran across a good answer the other day. The source said he only would tackle a niche if he felt he could rank well for all targeted keywords that average a total of 30k searches per month.

    Code:

    What he meant was 30k searches for all the keywords targeted combined. It didn't matter if he had only 1 keyword as a target or 30, all the searches for all the keywords in total had to add up to at least 30k searches per month.

    So to answer your question. No, 500 searches for 1 keyword is not too low. But don't target just one, go for a dozen or so. And just because there are few searches does not mean that the keyword is not in high competition, especially if it is a high paying in adsense.
