I have been researching several keywords and I have already lost count of the amount of times I’ve seen this <10 status. The QSR is in a great position but it isn’t getting traffic. Should I skip using said keyword or any keyword that looks like this, or should I aim for that keyword?

Thanks for asking this because I was wondering myself when I saw these results on Jaxxy.

Being quite new to matching keywords I’m not sure... but as I do sometimes think I’ve come across a number of people interested in the keywords that get results like this... it could be worthwhile writing about it... as mentioned, you could be pioneering new territory ... and I would also read what Nathaniell has to say in his blog in WA “Want to see a really long-tail keyword?”

Whatever decision you make, these types of articles could be an opportunity to be supplying super specific content for your audience ... something that will make them fall in love with you and be super engaged with what you say.

I could be wrong... but I’m planning on using a couple of these results and just putting it out there to see...

On top of that, when I get these results, as it is a more specific topic, I believe it would be easier to write about (and I already know about it) ... possibly only 1-2 hours invested in a 1500 word article

I could not agree with you more! I have been so tempted to use some of these keywords and who knows, maybe on social media people will engage more.

Regardless, maybe incorporating that keyword to another more relevant one can help as well.

Yes, I think that's a great idea. I often get new ideas to Google from something I've read/been informed about on Social Media. Then my horizons widen... with my vocabulary.

No harm in experimenting a little and seeing what happens!

The only way you would consider these is if you are certain that you are the first person to get into a new subject that is about to take off...

You are right. It means low or no traffic and so continue your research...

Hi Stephanie,

I stay from anything with the less than icon. Personally I would stay away from it.

Best wishes,
Michael

I do the same. But sometimes there are good keywords that have this issue and it’s a little upsetting
