Keywords under 10 searches in keyword tool worth it?

Keywords under 10 searches in keyword tool worth it?

asked in
Keyword, Niche and Market Research

Any amount of searches for a keyword is good to make content (when the competition is low). But I don't want the searches to be zero!

When it says <10 in the keyword to

see Carson has given some good insight to the keyword theory wish you luck

Hey Sandra,

First and foremost, choosing a good keyword comes down to relevancy. Traffic estimates aside, keywords first need to be relevant. If a keyword has less than 10 searches a month, and has a QSR = 2, that means that you're going to rank very easily for this keyword.

Always take traffic estimates with a grain of salt because they fluctuate from month to month. If the competition is low and you can rank for it, regardless of the searches that we estimate, it's probably a good keyword.

IF the keyword seems like it's going to connect you with a relevant audience and the competition is this low, then go for it!

Thanks for your reply Carson. That makes sense!

Thanks for the information, Carson. This is always helpful to read for us newbies.

How do I change the way comments appear on my website.

Everything Wordpress

Hi everyone,

The comments on my website don't look the way I would like them to.

Thank you so much for helping me with this. I'll try these changes on monday. And I'll have to look into creating a child theme.
Have a great weekend!
Greetings,
Sandra.

PS: I think it looks better like this:
}
li.comment {
padding: 10px 2px 2px 2px;
border-top: 2px dotted #ddd;
border-bottom: 2px solid #ddd;
border-left:2px solid #ddd;
border-right:2px solid #ddd;

margin-bottom: 5px;


}

Go to your stylesheet and change the comments setting like follow:
li.comment {
padding: 10px 0 0 10px;
border-top: 2px dotted #ddd;
border-bottom: 2px solid #ddd;
border-left:2px solid #ddd;
border-right:2px solid #ddd;

margin-bottom: 5px;


}

But be aware when you update your theme you have to do it again or you create a child theme with all the changes you like to do.

Normally you could change that in the stylesheet css. What is the theme you're using, perhaps I can help you.

Hi Giludi, I'm using the theme Rembrandt. Thanks for helping.

Search Engine Optimization

Today I received a mail from a website owner saying that she would like to exchange links on our sites. Should I do that? For example through incorporating a link to (a specific

You're more than welcome! :-)

Just to clarify further. You won't be penalised for reciprocal link building as there CAN be a genuine reason for it; Bloggers in the same niche linking to one another as important info sources for their readers, related clubs and associations etc. etc. etc.

You just won't get any SEO benefit from it.

Also, important to note is that if you won't gain anything from it then there is really no point doing it in my view as you give up a little bit of control over your link footprint. eg. What would happen if that blogger let his website lapse and a spammer bought it for an extensive link-building campaign or Viagra blog network? Or even if he made enemies who decided to target his site for some negative SEO?

Best to just be polite and decline in my opinion. :-)

Nope, not a good idea. Although linking IS still very important for rankings, there is no point in doing reciprocal linking. Google sees this as 'unnatural' and will not give you any SEO benefit for it.

Any beneficial linking is linking that goes in ONE DIRECTION. ie. Someone likes your content and links to it because it is an important source of info. Reciprocal linking is seen as gaming the system and Google knows you are doing it to artificially increase your rankings.

Therefore, NO it is not a good idea. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your reply. Good to know that Google considers reciprocal linking as unnatural.
So glad I checked here first :)

Thank you.

I agree with the Chhikara.

If you found quality content there. Then you can link to that site.

The Wealthy Affiliate Platform

I'm having a problem with the notifications. I'm not getting any email notifications from comments or replies to me since I joined. In my account settings all the options are

Has anyone else noticed email notifications are not working right now? I just noticed this the last couple days -- no emails at all, from folks I follow, discussions I'm part of, etc. I checked my Email Notification Settings and they are all turned on.

Did you just change your Account Setting?

Nope, I didn't change anything. I noticed a couple email notifications trickling in now, so maybe the issue was only temporary.

So maybe it's just temporary like you said:)

Go to in "Account Setting" or https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/home/my_profile and then you will see "Email Notification Settings". Hope works! :)

Hello Sandra .. You can send a PM to Kyle/carson to look into your problem. probably it's a small issu.
Good luck

Thank you. I'll do that.

Oops, PM's can only be sent by Premium members. And I'm not there yet.
