    Hi,

    It depends It always depends.
    I am interested to find a number of searches which looks fine for me in terms of "searches vs competition".

    I try to focus on local searches when i look for keywords, a low keyword that can bring me cash should have betweek 2 and 6k monthly hits imo.

    Think about it from a monetization point of view. Let's say a search has 1,000 hits and you're lucky enough to rank #1. And you get about 400 of those to your site. And let's say you get 2% of them to convert and each conversion makes you $25. So 1000 searches, 400 visitors, 8 conversions @$25 = $200 for the month.

    Would you be happy with $200 for the effort it requires?

    Obviously you need to look at this from your perspective with your numbers but that's how I'd probably look at it. And understand that you might not be #1, you might not get 2%, etc.

    What I'd look at doing is getting a bunch of those low competition, smaller search keywords in a particular niche and then building a site around several of those smaller keywords.

    It depends if its your primary keyword then you can go up to 1500 exact search but if the keyword is secondary then you can target 500 per month search keyword.

    Minimum 500 Global Monthly Searches are good for low competition keywords.

    Buying keywords - Local Search can be 800.
    Non Buying but targeted keywords - Local can be 2000+ while Global should be 3, 500+ for non competitive keywords thou, i love to give value to my time when ranking for keywords, it has to be worth it.

  • It depends on your local business really and the size of the town/city you are in. You should also be looking at competition factors and also remember to look at exact searches and not just broad which will give you some false answers. If you can are a Psychologist for example in the city of Derby, then search numbers will be low but so will your competition, so even if I only get 100 visits per month from a keyword and I get 1% conversion then you are likely to get one new client per month for one keyword. I am sure a Psychologist will be happy with that.

    I go for exact match search terms with at least 1500+ Global monthly searches and less than 100 results on Google.
