I am brand new to this and I am asking for your help.
I discovered MS ten days ago and I am using it to find keywords for my niche site. These words must be something that I endorse personally.
I realized soon enough, and it's nothing new for you I assume, interesting niches are extra competitive (a huge disappointment ) and I probably stand no chance of competing against them with my rudimentary SEO and web marketing skills. I also learned here on WF that you need to find keywords with 1000 or more "exact match" searches per month for your website to be successful/profitable. Well, after seven days of exploring, I found 4-5 keywords that match MS "golden rule" requirements, yet these are not quite related to my interests.
What strikes me (and I would like to explore this possibility) is that there are many appealing keywords but with only 500 or so searches per month and very low competition. I like that many of them are related and can be part of one theme. But, this is far bellow the recommended 1000 by the WF.
My question for you: Is it a good strategy to find 4-5 closely related keywords with 400-600 exact match visits per month and build a thematic website around them instead of targeting 1000-searches per month words?
I thank you all in advance!
