    I'm a newbie, just want to know if this KW would be hard to rank based on the info I gave. I know it may be a dumb question but it is the only way I will learn. By asking questions, so that people can tell me if there are other factors needed.

    I wanted some advice from BHW members, trust me I do a lot of searches. A LOT! If you dont want to help, you dont have to. I am not asking to be spoon fed. I came across this keyword by searching and trying different things out. I simply wanted to know if the competition is hard to beat since they have Domain age but PR0 sites.

    You will always find dicks on here, like any forum, just ignore them and concentrate on the helpful answers.

    Anyway, based on what you have there it looks good so far in terms of your ability to rank on it but in saying that it does all come down to how powerful their links are.

    For KW Research check out this tread:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-newbies.html?highlight=keyword+research+noob

    With the EMD it will give you a good head start but it will come down to your On-Page + Off-Page SEO work.

    My advice... Go for it! If you fail, analyze where you went wrong and implement the changes for your next site. Don't expect to hit a money maker on your first attempt.

    Hope that helps!

    It's possible to rank for the keyword, though you might not always be at the top 5. Try to do this:

    1. enter that same keyword into google keyword tool and choose the option "Only show ideas closely related to my search terms"
    2. sort the results based on search volume and copy the first 50 or 100 keywords that appear
    3. if a domain name exists for the main keyword you are targeting, register the domain name. If not, register a domain name with one of the keywords copied in step 2 above
    4. write one article for each keyword in step 2 and schedule them to be posted to your wordpress blog. Let the posting be 1 article per day. The titles of each post must be the exact keyword you copied in step 2. Dont add any other word or remove any word.
    5. install search tag plugin. After you start getting about 50 visitors per day, deactivate the plugin
    6. do some link pushing and some scrapebox blasting

    This is the method I use in ranking for my toughest keywords. Your own may be tougher but you are likely to get something good if you do it right.

    Personally, I would try for something easier on your first shot, even if it's less money - the experience will teach you more than anyone on here can.

    I also think that the answer to your question of how easy it would be to rank, really depends on what your skills are, and what software you have and/or how much money do you have to spend.

    So, someone here might say that's easy, because they have an advertising budget or they already have $1000 in tools that you don't have.

    My take on it?

    CONS:
    The top 5 - all have have domain age from 6 to 14 years
    The top 4 (and 2 lower down) are in DMOZ
    The SEO looks decent

    PRO:
    The ranking pages themselves have no PR
    the BLP for most pages isn't toooo high

    CONCLUSION:
    A good EMD and some money (or time) to spend will get you there, but it won't rank from EMD alone

    By looking at this status, SEO Competition and backlink count for those top 10 domains, it seems that all/most of those results are all subpages. If its true, theres high possibility that exact match domain for your keyword will be available.

    So yeah this keyword is easy peasy to rank unless its a product name of a Big Brand.

    Quite difficult, your easiest competitor is number 7, and he has 4K plus links.

    So.... be ready to build at least 5K-6K links.

    If this is your first attempt at ranking a site, I'd suggest you go for a keyword that has a bit less competition so you don't get put off if you are unable to rank

    Hey, how do you say such a thing as the writer of legendary threads here? It is somewhat clear that this is a product related kw. And mostly, MS shows millions of backlinks for those kws due to the power of main domain (homepage).

    Nope......

    The ones on the first page are mainly giant sites like amazon/wikipedia/tigerdirect/ebay/wall-mart etc. and so on.

    OP, just go for it. If I found that kw, now I would have been getting backlinks for it.

    One of the effective strategies is get the back links of your competitor and make it as your back links too. Just try and try if you fail then analyze the weak points of your site why that keyword doesn't rank well. :)
