    Hi,

    Please see the attached image. I am confused about a few things.

    1. Do you think I will be able to rank for this keyword easily? (by easy I mean within 3 months without spending more than $100 per month on SEO)

    2. CPC is quite high, but there are lots of affiliate programs too for this. The problem is that the payout is quit low, something like $1 for free signups and about $5 if user goes for paid version)

    So should I keep both adsense and affiliate ads on the website?

    3. No EMD in top 10. The top website seems to have some quality backlinks...mostly blog posts on PR2-4 pages but the second one has lots of forum profiles and posts...

    I have a lot of respect for the members at BHW and your opinions on this matter will surely help me a lot.

    Thanks

    another thing that I can't figure out is whether to build a micro-niche-site with 5-10 articles loaded with adsense or make an actual review site with affiliate links.

    I was also thinking about an affiliate site. What about the competition?

    Would really appreciate some comments about the difficulty of ranking this keyword.

    Thanks!

    Wouldn't say easy, but I wouldn't say hard either. Looks doable.

    I would call it easy. Should be no problem at all, if you spend those $100 smart you can get away with $100 per two months.

    But dude, don't bump your threads every several hours. Wait at least a day. That's good manners.
