I have been doing a lot of keyword research and looking for a niche I can call my own. I believe I have found one. Here are the stats for the keyword.
Local searches - 1900
When searched as "keyword" - 22,600 results
Allintitle: "keyword" - 3,400 results
Allinurl: "keyword" - 1,200 results
No exact match domains on page 1
Several weak matches on page 1 without keyword in either url, title, or description
This is all great, but what concerns me is that the manufacturer which sells the product is ranked #1, along with Amazon and EBay in the top 10.
My question is: even if I ranked on the first page, would I be able to compete with the 3 retail powerhouses already on the first page? Would they hog all of the searches for that keyword? Or would I draw visitors over them due to the fact that my site would be laser focused on that exact search term?
Looking forward to your wisdom!
