4 stars in traffic travis really?

I'm doing keyword research and lately I've been coming across a bunch of keywords that look rather intimidating but traffic travis is giving them 4 stars. These are authority sites that have tons of backlinks -- I'm talking tens of thousands to the actual page not the domain. An age of more than 5 years, some even more than a decade old. The average PR is a 5.

The only issue I see is that these pages aren't really optimized for the keyword. The keyword is not in the domain name and they're missing a lot of the title, description, and H1 tags.

Would that be a reason why it's getting 4 stars? If so, would having proper on page SEO and decent backlinks really beat out all the strengths of these websites I've described above?

Hi Frank,

Could you post the keywords here or PM them to me so I could run the same research on my end?

Thanks!
