  2. They have a high enough level of search traffic.
  3. They have a high enough level of commerciality (people spend money).
  4. They have a low enough level of competition, both
    1. a low enough number of competitive websites
    2. the top 10 websites for a keyword phrase have a low enough strength of competition
