I knew it was going to be difficult to review, and I probably would have gotten my dog a subscription anyways...
But BarkBox review is at 5.5 million results in Google. (OUCH)
Should I even both writing a review so it's there once I get traffic? Or should I just say oh well and find something else to review? I was going to do a review each month of the boxes.
I got it down to 137k by using a longer phrase (my puppy loves barkbox) but it is <10 avg & traffic & 200 qsr in Jaxxy.
Thanks for your help!

6,420 results actually - don't forget to add the quotes.

You should definitely go ahead & write the review, because even if it doesn't attract search traffic, it will definitely enhance user experience on your website because no doubt at some point you'll mention "barkbox" & when you do, you'll be able to link to your review (increasing engagement on your site).

I'll be using "barkbox" for reviews every month so I'll just have to try and be the first review each month. :)

Hi - if you just put barkbox review in Google, it will show every result that has the word "review" in it as well as barkbox, whether that be book review, TV review etc.

You need to put quotation marks round it and then Google will only search for that exact phrase. The actual results for "barkbox review" are much more reasonable!

It came down to under 7000. I'll keep trying to find a good phrase that way.
Does it matter if the person searching uses quotations?

don't forget in google to add the " " around your keyword as google will show results for each word and combinations - or go to the bottom and click on the last page number - keep doing this till it stops - see how many real reults there are....
as you say that keyword is a bit on the competitive side - check out a few of the top sites and see if they have missed anything - how about christmas presents for dog owner : the barkbox( or bark box as 2 words....)
good luck

I just tried barkbox september and it's good in Jaxxy but over 2mil in google search. And the fact that people are not going to be searching for september when it's almost december...
