How does Traffic Travis Compute Difficulty of Keyword?

Hi, i just want to know if this traffic Travis report is accurate, 1st, i have a keyword with traffic Travis tells me is Relatively easy to rank for:
[Image no longer available]
then we go to the detail page and just take a look at those PR and BL!!!!!:
[Image no longer available]
So how does this really works?, or what does it really mean "Relatively easy" it looks kind of hard to me to rank for that particular keyword with those PR and BL, is Traffic Travis being inaccurate?
Thanks for any support on this
Best Regards!

Hi angelnewsletters,

I'm sorry, I'm not able to see those images clearly. If possible, could you list your keywords instead?

Traffic Travis does not calculate the difficulty rating using the PR and backlinks value alone. It also takes into consideration the H1 tag and the title tag. All four are taken into account when Traffic Travis computes for the difficulty. Those keywords may be in a lot of backlinks and high PR sites, but they may not be in a lot of H1 tags and title tags for these sites, thus, they are easy to rank for as compared to the rest of the other keywords.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Thanks cecille for your feedback, i´ve been doing lost of tests, these keywords are from 2 days ago, now i don´t even remember what keywords are or why i even blur them, i think because everybody does it, lol, anyway, if you Right-Click on the image and then click on "See Image" you will be available to see a bigger image, a real size image, and i really don´t think that if i put some H1 and title tags to my page i will be able to over-rank these guys, i think they don´t bother to put those tags because they are pretty ranked with thousands of backlinks and a PR 6, i mean is just like facebook or twitter, i dont think they really care about H1 tags or something because they are so popular.

Well. that´s my opinion, but do you really believe that i could rank well on these keywords according to the data gathered from traffic travis?

Thanks a lot for your support

I'm sorry but I believe otherwise. In order for sites to gain rank, they need to care about on-page SEO. Also, these sites started with a low PR like every other site and had to work their way up.

Yes, you can rank relatively easy enough for the keywords, but keep in mind that you need to have an SEO strategy whether ranking for easy or difficult keywords.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
