I met a few roadblocks today in setting up my site. Hence i got a several questions that i'd like to have further clarification to.
1. I registered a domain name at Godaddy few weeks ago. The domain was not activated yet. I tried to use a local hosting for the domain, and the domain transfer costs ~10USD.
Is this normal? Or am i getting scammed? 10USD would be like registering another new domain.
2. Keyword research. Again and again i checked, and yet i could not be sure if this keyword is good enough. It has 4400 exact match and below average competition, i believe i can outrank the competitor's site, or at least make it to the first page.
Problem is there is no ads for the keyword. Could it possibly mean that this keyword is a risky one?
3. I've seen people saying that a squeeze page is a must. I can see that it is especially true in niches like MMO, weight loss etc.
What about less desperate niches like, for example a more to entertainment product like game guides? Do squeeze page works just as well?
Thanks to all.
