1. most of the sites have 1k, 2k 5k, 10k backlinks to the page
2. most of the sites are high PR, etc
so the conventional wisdom would tell me to
GO TO THE NEXT KW, THIS ONE IS NO GOOD
However one of the things I have been concentrating on this week is determining, IS THIS TRUE,
Are these kws in fact no good? should I just move on
Some of the things I have discovered reading tutorials and talking to other webmasters both on this board and other forums is this
1. What about the onpage SEO of the site? if the site has no onpage SEO the kw in title, url, header, and desc are N N N N (at least on the Market Samurai spreadsheet)..................this means that this kw is definitely NOT being targeted by this site.
This means that despite there being huge number of backlinks and high PR, this kw may in fact be "doable"
2. The backlinks must be analyzed instead of just looking and saying OH THIS SITE HAS TOO MANY BACKLINKS
What are the kws in the anchor text of this site?
If the top ten site, especially is just showing the ROOT domain, this brings up an interesting situation
Lets say the site is www.othersite.com
It is in the #3 position for this kw on the top ten
it is showing 1000 backlinks
How many of those backlinks are targeting THIS KEYWORD, thats one question
In other words the anchor text of all those kws, how many of the backlinks have THIS KEYWORD in their anchor text
theoretically, if the site has very poor or NO onpage SEO for this kw, then the anchor text MUST be targeting this kw, otherwise why is google pulling it up? why is this site number 3 for this kw?
So my basic discovery this week is , its not the number of backlinks to the page that count, its the number of backlinks with this kw in the anchor text, that matters (and also the PR of those backlinks)
Ok thats my information that I discovered this week ,
Also SEOquake is not good for this type of analysis, it just gives total backlinks it wont analyze the PR of backlinks or the anchor text like Market Samurai does
and SEO spyglass you have to enter each url one by one(as far as I know)
I dont have time for that
