    What is the best, free strategy for assessing Google first page competition? What would you add to this list or change?:

    A low competition keyword phrase is one that:

    1) Has a low number of competing pages (say 50k)

    2) Has Google first page competitors with a page rank of 2 or less

    3)Has Google first page competitors that do not have many quality links to their domain or page

    5)All of the above plus does not use KW phrase in title and/or url

    6) Has Google first page competitors who do not offer serious value (i.e. zero marketing or spam) and high-engagement content to readers (the new Google "Value Proposition" criteria)....

    Utilities, my, utilities.
    There is more to SEO than Contextual [Key]words.

    But, if you must use [Key]words,

    1. Utilize
    [Real]Link (slug/perma)
    In-text keywords, within the first 140 characters of the first paragraph.

    2. Don't "stuff" the turkey to the gills.
    3. Competing on English words is insane, most are redundant, hence long-tail/phrases.

    Good Hunting!
