In my keyword research today I am trying to find a keyword that gets a decent amount of searches and traffic along with a good QSR. I also want the keyword phase to be a catchy headline title that is going to attract the readers attention. I found a pretty good keyword that gets searched a pretty good amount it gets 164 searches 30 traffic and has a QSR of 45. Now I have a catchy headline phase that gets 128 searches 22 traffic and a QSR of 1610000. I would like to have a catchy headline phase and also have a good keyword phase at the same time. One that has a low QSR, what should I do in this case just go with the good keyword phase or go with the catchy headline phase that has an impossible QSR ranking? Please leave me your comments below. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

If it has a QSR of 1610000 you should keep away from it. Kyle´s advice is to choose QSR that is less than 400. If you have more than a million pages competeing agianst you it´s probably a lost battle even before you start! Chances are that some of the top pages have a high Page Rank and quite old domain age as well as a lot of relevant backlinks. It will take an enormouse effort of you to beat this.

If I understand you correctly, you've stumbled upon a common problem in today's flooded market. That's why Kyle and Carson are always preaching "Research!" Keep looking for the happy medium I would say, but just because the domain name isn't catchy, doesn't mean your home page and your other pages and blog/post titles have to be that way. Correct me if I'm wrong (open petition).

Let me explain I guess I should have put this in the discussion I am wanting to write an article but want it to have a catchy descriptive headline. I got this "taking time to invest in yourself" it gets 164 searches 30 traffic and a QSR of 45. I got this other keyword phase that sounds a little better and it is "3 extraordinary ways to invest in yourself", It gets 128 searches 22 traffic but it has a QSR of like 1610000.

My question is which one should I go with? I am going to write this on a article directory site, so I want the title to reach out to the reader and make them want to read more. Also I would like to find a low competition keyword ( The Low hanging fruit as Kyle calls it) that will be easy to get ranked in the search engines.

Should I just keep doing more research or which 1 should I go with? Sorry for the confusion.

That's a good question, I was thinking in terms of what website domain name to buy. For the title of an article perhaps you should use the catchy phrase, and use the tags that work best for traffic. Use a blend of the of those words in the content and then get interaction from others using those keywords, like I'll comment using great article about taking the time to invest in yourself Scott!" for instance. If and when you get the article to come up high on searches, then you've got to have something that I'll click on. I think the most important thing is to write a great article that people will share with their friends regardless of which one you go with, that will weigh more in the long run. Hope this helps.

When I put your phrase into google with quotes there was no competition. That figure of 1610000 is complete bogus. If it gets 128 searches a month then get it done you would be on position 1.....wait a minute just put it Jaaxy. There is less than 10 searches a month. Its not going to produce much traffic after all but with other LSI keywords in the post it could still work.

I am not sure what you mean by headline title. You can incorporate your keyword into a catchy phrase. Say the keyword is "new car smell" You can use that keyword in a sentence that is catchy, like, "Make your car nose friendly with a NEW CAR SMELL.. Thus, phrase and keyword, all in one. Hope this helps :)
