Keyword Sanity Check Question

5 replies
Hello, I am researching long tail keywords and would appreciate a sanity check to see if I'm interpreting the results right. My model is very simple to start, ezinearticles, goarticles, etc articles with resource box links to a high level domain which is redirected to an affiliate offer.

Google AdWords Keyword Tool shows 1,900 exact (4,400 broad) searches per month. Allintitle: shows 2060 results, which I feel is a bit too high. But the top result has a PR 0 with 1,010 backlinks. 2nd result is PR 2 with 0 backlinks and 3rd is PR 3 with 2 backlinks. None of these are Web 2.0 properties. The first ezine article is in position 9 with 0 backlinks.

Would I be correct to target this LTK because it seems I should be able to get at least to number two or three with properly written articles with a lot of backlinking, for example using Angela Edwards' monthly backlink package?

If I had more experience I would test it and find my own answer, but being new, I do not have anything to compare to. So any insight would be appreciated. Thank You.

    Since this post is already on the third page of the forum with no replies, it likely will not be viewed again unless I ask again. I was wondering if anyone has any insight? Thank You.

      considering the lack of any tough competition - i would go for it.

      with a little effort, you should be able to rank well for it.

    For the search volume and minimal competition to beat out (from what you've explained) - I'd certainly go for it. Worst case, nothign happens. Best case - you rank. From there - it's focus on getting the peopel to your site, conversion into actions, and profit

    I'd be jumping with joy.

    Go for it.

    And, you know what, while it is the right thing to do to get at least some info and insights before starting, (to save a lot of time and money from going down -obvious to those who know better- dead end streets) Once you have SOME info, you just gotta jump in and do it.

    After a while of hitting it right, and bombing on some, you will get a feel for what you can and can not rank for. That experience is gold worth, and can only be gotten by first hand experience.

    There's a fine line between analysis paralysis and getting some needed education...

    If the domain is available, you may get that and have a real advantage over some of your competitors.

    Good Luck!
