Low Competition: After choosing keywords with small traffic now it’s time to see the competition behind them. Bloggers analyze backlinks count and other ranking factors to analyze the top 10 ranking sites so that they can assess that what potential their website or webpage need to outrank already ranking sites on first page. To analyze top 10 results for targeted keywords bloggers use different paid and free tools. The basic aim to use these tools is to analyze the referring domains, referring backlinks and other ranking factors of the sites and pages which are already rank on top. This helps to pick low competition keywords for which bloggers need minimum backlinks to rank on top.
