EMD available with 800k searches / month!

I found a keyword where Adwords claims there are over 800,000 searches/month and the exact match .com domain is available.

When people are searching for the keyword they won't surround it in quotes.

Since Google is showing 98 million results for the keyword without quotes, would it be easy to rank this domain #1 given the following factors:

keyword -> 91,000,000 results
"keyword" -> 1 result
allintitle:"keyword" -> 0 results
inanchor:"keyword" -> 0 results

I would like to think that putting some quality content on that domain and doing a small amount of backlinking would push it to #1 but the enormous number of results seen when searching without quotes is scary.

What are your thoughts on this?

    Is that 800,000 EXACT searches per month?

    If so, I don't know if I believe you :p

    But, for ranking purposes, you don't really have to look at anything that you mentioned above. All you should be looking is the stats of the top 10 in Google. You need to look at PR, backlinks, title, description, etc.

    If it is 800,000 EXACT searches per month, I would buy it no matter what the competition level is.

    At the least, i'd do a lot of comparison with results in Yahoo/Bing and i'd check on the competition in Google. I never take any one tool at it's word and instead, I prefer a consensus.

    That's a good question Mike, I didn't include quotes into Adwords when performing the search.

    Just now I put the same keyword phrase into Adwords surrounded by quotes (phrase match) and it says 823,000 monthly for both global and local. The exact match (surrounding keyword phrase in [ and ]) seems to break Adwords, I've issued the request 3 times now and it's stalling.. will keep trying and let you know..

    Just registered the domain

      Putting the keyword phrase into Adwords surrounded by [ and ] also yields 823,000 / month both globally and locally. I would like to get excited about this but for now remain cautious.

    This is not a measure of competition. It doesn’t mater how many pages are competing for the keyword, all that matters is the strength of the competition on the first page of Google, because that is where you want to rank.

    Also depends what the Keyword is – can you make money from the traffic?

    Did you get the 800k figure as an exact match in Google keyword tool?

    Have you ticked the "exact" box on the left hand side bar?

      As one of the finest Scottish marketers mentioned above doing the little search in quotes means absolutely nothing.

      If there are only 10 websites competing for a keyword but they've been around for 8 years plus, have 50,000 backlinks each and are optimized perfectly, how do you rate your chances?

      Slim to say the least.

      Here is something else you'll also find useful from one of my favorite people in IM, Mr Brad Callen...

      This is an email from yesterday I believe and was titled my number 1 SEO mistake (I only include this because it sounds very similar to what you're about to do...)


      Hey Jake, I won't take much of your time but
      wanted to send you a quick email to tell you about a lesson
      that I learned many years ago, and how you can use it to
      double, triple, quadruple, etc. your own online business
      immediately.

      Ok, way back when I got started online, I ran a health and
      fitness website. I studied everything I could about SEO.
      I knew that if I could get my website to the top of Google
      for related keywords, I could get a lot of traffic, and
      hopefully make a lot of money.

      Since my website was in the health/fitness niche,
      specifically the weight loss niche, in all of my creative
      brilliance, I decided the best keyword that would get me
      the most traffic was the term: weight loss

      I mean, heck, you'd think that would be one of the most
      searched keywords in the world, right?

      Well, let me tell you... It was/is!

      So, I spent the next year doing everything I'd learned
      about SEO. And after that year, my site landed at the #2
      position in Google for the term: weight loss !

      Incredible, I thought.

      I was getting tens of thousands of visitors to my website,
      per day, with that 1 single keyword phrase.

      But wait... There was 1 minor problem.

      I wasn't making any sales!

      And herein lies the problem that 99% of website owners make...

      They go after keywords that send a lot of traffic, and
      completely neglect the fact that the traffic is full of
      "browsers", NOT "buyers".

      I don't know about you, but I would MUCH rather have 10
      "buyers" visit my site, and buy my stuff than 100,000
      "browsers" only looking to browse my website.

      Thanks Barry, looks like it was a false alarm... the 'Broad match' checkbox was checked on the left. Then when I clicked the 'Exact match' it dropped to 9,900 / month

      Silly me!

        10k a month isn't bad. So I'd still consider going after it. Especially if the competition doesn't look too strong.

    It doesn't sound like you are using the keyword tool correctly.

    Are you typing the keyword into the search box like this [keyword]?

    Or are you just typing the keyword in then ticking the "exact" box under "Match types"?

    9,900 isn't too shabby either IF it is a good keyword.

    A good gauge is to have a look at the estimated CPC.

    9,900 is still a good number to work with depending on the keyword

    lol, ok I think I have the hang of this..

    Just brainstormed a new keyword: bridesmaid wedding dresses uk
    Exact match: 27,100 monthly globally & locally
    bridesmaidweddingdressesuk.com domain available
    bridesmaidweddingdresses.co.uk domain available

    The #1 position is elderberrybrides.co.uk and have lots of relevant backlinks according to TrafficTravis.

    What would be considered 'doable' in terms of outranking the current #1 if you have an exact match domain?

    I guess in this case the .co.uk is more valuable than .com?
    All the results are .co.uk domains..

    ideas?

      if you're going after that, get the co.uk domain, and host the site on a UK IP.

      There's a reason why all the sites on page 1 are co.uk.

      Sean,

      Where are you getting your figures for this keyword ? That keyword gets zero exact match searches and even the keyword "bridesmaid wedding dresses" only gets 480 global exact searches. You need to be careful to accurately check the figures before going ahead and registering domains.

      Best, Adam

        Hi Adam, in Adwords, all countries and the English language is set. I also clicked on exact match.

        [edit] rechecked the results in adwords for the same keyword this morning and it's now showing ZERO like Terry says. Oh dear.

    Whats really intesting about Adwords is when you fill in a keyphrase and select exact match.. there are very few keyphrases with more than 3 words in them. So according to Adwords "most" people must only be typing in 1, 2 or 3 keywords into Google.

    Another observation is that the monthly searches for 4 word phrases are very low (eg: < 2000 searches / mo).

    This makes it difficult to research the longtail keywords/phrases..
