So, I would like to keep it simple, stupid (K.I.S.S.), so I would like to conclude that we need :


WA Keyword Tool :

Searches : 100 or more

Traffic : 20 or higher, less than 100 the better

Competition (View Result) : 300 or less. and 50 or less is even better

Article Power : 8 or more preferably

PPC : 8 or more preferably

Dig : Yes, "dig" and "dig" until find something great



I think I am right ... but I would appreciate it very much if you please correct me if I am wrong ... Any input or experience will be greatly appreciated!!

Thank You So Much!!!

The only question is traffic - you mentioned under 100 is better but actually the more the better - it's the relationship to competitor sites that's what you're looking for (that and the fact that there is actually some likely traffic for that keyword)
Reply
JewelCarol Premium
Hey Marie, thanks so much for yr great input. :))

The question on traffic, I can't remember which above training or blog posts mentioned that traffic under 100, the chances of getting competition lesser than 300 is easier to find.

And if we can get competition lower than 50, that will even better. ;))

Thanks Jewel. I know there are other factors involved in actual Google rankings such as age of site, number of posts or pages, numbers of visitors to the site and how long we keep them there via backlinks and other tools but understanding keywords and how they do affect our possibilities in ranking is primo importanto!

Blessings,
Debby

Yes, you are right, but if we can master the art of getting low hanging fruit, that will be great, Debby. But again, our contents has to be of good quality too, lol. Thank you for coming. ;))

The battle rages on regarding Keywords... So which guru is absolutely? right?
Reply
JewelCarol Premium
Ed, thanks very much for chipping in, I think we just consolidate the facts of what we found from the gurus and summarize them, that is what I did here. :))

In practice these numbers may be useless due to following reasons.
1) Nobody searches under quotes and this is what these tools give. 2) True competition may be any post with your words from the keyword, in any order and in any combination with any other word(s).
3) It is impossible to know what will happen with the ranking of your keyword and how Google will treat it. I have experienced it badly many times.
4) To see true competition type
intitlle: keyword
inurl: keyword
you will find very different numbers and you will get scared.

Hi Jovo. Any chance you could elaborate on your above findings and tell us what you find to be more accurate or helpful in the search for ranking keywords? This would be helpful as I have seen some huge variations between even jaaxy and google based searches, and I'm not talking one or two hundred, but thousands. Any extra insight would be most appreciated.
Cheers.
Steve.

There is not much to elaborate, try as I described above and you will see. I have pages with 6 or 20 competing pages and yet they are nowhere to be found on Google. Obvious reason: millions of true competing sites as described in item 4.
Reply
Kathy331 Premium
Well I'm pleased to say I've just checked a few of mine using your method Jovo and they're ranking higher that Jaaxy says! Thanks for the input. :)
Reply
jvranjes Premium
It is not my method Kathy, but I do not follow you, I did not speak about rank checking, it was about competing pages. So how did you get info about ranking from my information?
Reply
Kathy331 Premium
Misunderstanding I think Jovo. :) Using the what you said above I did a search. One keyword in particular was 3 in Google above other competing pages. Isn't this the same thing, your rank in Google compared to other competitors?
Reply
jvranjes Premium
Yes you are right. So how many millions did you have behind you?
Reply
Kathy331 Premium
Well for one there were 100,000 and I was number 3 and another I was 4th with 150,000. I have a number 1 spot with one keyword with 23.000 so am happy with results. Haven't found any with millions yet but I've only tried a few!
Thanks for posting this, it's pretty neat. :)
Reply
JewelCarol Premium
Yes, Jovo, thanks a lot, so you meant to say for yr above pt 4, to have a better true competition type, if I search for affiliate marketing on Google, I should put intitle: affiliate marketing - is that right? :))
Reply
jvranjes Premium
If you just search, do as usual in Google; but to see your true competition better use the point 4. QSR is not a true competition regardless what they claim, it gives something but it is far from enough.

Hi Jewel, Based on my experience using it I believe you have the correct conclusions. I am still not ranking as well as I should be at this point but using the Keyword Tool and Jaaxy seem to confirm what you have described.

Yes, that is what I hope so, thank you Ron!!. ;))
