Question DA vs URL, Desc & Title regarding keyword


John Wayne

Hello everyone,

I am using the SEO tool Keysearch. In the screen shot below you can see that a keyword I have searched for gave results on the first page of high domain authority, back links etc. However, the specific keyword is not in any of their URL, description or title. The keyword had a difficulty score of 29/100 (the lower the better).



My website is new and has a domain authority of 1. Would it be possible to get on the first page for this keyword if I optimise for this keyword, since the others on the front page do not optimise for it (not in url, desc, title) ?

I understand I should try rank for easier keywords, with a score less than this keyword, as much as possible. However, in this situation, is it a good keyword? It has a high volume of search results / month.

Thank you.
