    Stuck In a Rut - Keywords???


    I am finally back in action or at least getting prepared to get in action. My goal is to make at least $2000 a month. I know almost exactly how I am going to go about it. I have the plan set out and everything. The only problem that continues to haunt me is "choosing the right keywords and getting sites to number 1 position". What I mean by choosing the right keywords is a keyword I can easily rank for without building thousands of links to the site. I have chosen plenty of keywords in the past to try to rank for and none of them in the number 1 spot except for one that doesn't bring any traffic. Can anyone advise me on what I should do to avoid choosing bad keywords and a way I can rank for keywords. You can even suggest a product or ebook as long as it works. Thanks

    What I do so you know how much I know about keyword research.

    Choose keywords with less than 20,000 competing pages, has at least 3+ web 2.0 sites on first page, has at least 1000 search volume according to google keyword tool, I use exact match. I also look at how many backlinks each site has on first page using the seo for firefox tool.

    Tip. 1 You need links in order to rank.

    Tip. 2 You can run an adwords campaign in order to see if there is a good search volume for your product on that keyword.

    Tip. 3 You need links in order to rank.

    I know I need links to rank, I can build backlinks to my site and I actually do build backlinks to my site its just that after getting 1000 backlinks and you are not on the first page but there is a site sitting in the number 1 spot with only 20 or so backlinks, I begin to wonder. And I try to get high pr backlinks too.

    I think the Quality and Relevance of the links is more important than the #. 1000's of directory links in India wont help you out as much as a few local industry links.
