    I found a keyword with 300 searches per month
    the cpc is good and the EMD is available and the competition is weak

    would you go for such keyword ?

    Thanks

    No personally I wouldn't.

    I tend to go for medium competition keywords, because they are at least worth ranking.

    300 searches a month, means 30 searches a day, out of those 30, if your top 5, you have a 20% chance of the searcher even going to your website.

    The juice is not worth the squeeze.

    For me it would depend on the related keywords. If there were a couple more keywords I could target that would bump the search number up to around 1,000, it might be a good idea. I have a website that makes very good money from a 320/month search term. It's all about the almighty dollar in the end.

    You need to ask yourself, Can I make any money from 100 visitors a month?

    If the competition was easy enough that I thought I would get top 5 position for onsite seo alone then I would. I would also make it just a 3 article site.
