How Do I Access Keyword Competition
I have identified several related keywords that have 3000 - 60,000 searches per month in Google Keyword Planner a a product I am considering promoting. In Google Keyword Planner they are listed as High Competition.
I then added these keywords to Traffic Travis and all but the 60,000 keyword came back as easy or relatively easy difficulty. (The 60,000 keyword came in at Medium).
When I checked the results though, I found that I would be competing with Amazon, eBay etc with PR's of about 6 AND a truck load of backlinks (millions to the site, fewer to the product page)
How can I compete with that? How can it be "easy" or "relatively easy" to rank against such sites?
Also, how do ascertain how many competing websites etc are out there for a particular keyword. Someone suggested doing a Google search with AND without " around my keyword and comparing the numbers/results.
For example, the 60,000 keyword when typed into Google has 90,500,000 results. If I add " to each end of the keyword I get around 281,000 results.
What is this supposed to tell me? And is this info important?
If so, how can I use the information?
