using. I am no expert on keyword knowledge. Some people follow keywords, others don't. I am trying to learn how I can use the correct keywords/phrases in my Titles to get organic traffic easier. I have succeeded in some areas, while others have failed. This is mainly because of different niches and etc...
Is a phrase with 9900 monthly searches with relatively high comp. good or bad? It says its high, but sort of medium/high. Does not have complete bar on google adwords: keyword tool.
The green bar shows advertiser competition ie: how many advertisers are bidding for their ad to show on that keyphrase. Using this info is not a good measure of whether an article focused on that phrase will do well in the search engine results.
What you need to be interested in is publisher competition and assessing how good the current pages on page 1 of google search for that phrase are. Sunforged covers it in this hub. The Hubcamp videos cover it as well: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/hubcamp-sf-1/
What's the CPC?
How much competition?
9900 exact? If exact, what's broad?
9900 yes, but I would imagine that's approximate.As for CPC, how do you know when using the google keyword tool?
CPC can be found by clicking on columns on the right hand side and clicking Average CPC check box in the pop up window.
If you are using the Adwords tool, click on columns button and then check CPC button to view CPC.
Are you using Market Samurai or some other tool to observe competition?
9900 exact is decent, but you can find those values with relatively little competition also. If it is a profitable niche then it may be worth it. It all depends on what it is.
I think 9,900 monthly is worthwhile if the CPC is at least a dollar considering you may have to work kinda hard to hit top ten. It probably wouldn't be a big earner, but over time they all add up.
I just found a broad 3 word keyword phrase that gets 110,000 global monthly with really low competition since it only pays a nickel a click. But my goal isn't AdSense here so this will be easy traffic to get since no one else really wants it and it fits my needs for a related affiliate program perfectly.
I think it is bad idea to work with that KW since you told it has high competition. Lot of work to get into front page of google.
that means high advertiser competition, which means the earnings you get per click will be more stable.
To find out hoow much competition you face for that keyword, you really need to use a third party tool to estimate keyword competition across google.

When using Google's keyword tool, is it better to look for high or low competition words? I typed in a phrase and got 9900 monthly searches with low comp. Would that be considered good? The phrase was the same as I...

I'm having an issue deciding what keywords to go after. Most of the lower competition words I'm not as interested in and it takes me longer to write since I'm not enjoying. But, most of the things I'm very interested in...

I still see many people making incorrect assumptions about the way competition works. Just to clear that up:1. High Competition in the Google keyword planner is GOOD (because advertisers pay more for clicks). There is...

I have been here on HP over 3 years, and still don't fully comprehend the concept! I get that they are words and/or phrases that reflect the content of your article, aren't tags, and that they're not to be...
