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?
