Help with using Keywords...

    I just want to make sure I am doing it right. When choosing keywords I choose words that are low competition with a higher Global Monthly search and a good CPS like 50 cents or more. Am I doing it right?

      Select keywords that have good number of exact search matches in google adwords tool.

      Pay attention to competition for a keyword in google search and not in the competition column of google keyword tool.

          I thought the column in adwords was for competition for google search?

            No; it refers to competition for ad space and cost and is intended for advertisers.  I just delete that whole column to ease confusion when I use the tool.

    I like to look at choosing keywords in a different way. I brainstorm a few keyword phrases that I think I would like to write on and also seem to be enough to get some decent search engine traffic.

    I will then go and look at the top ten on page 1 of Google, as after all, they are the only competition really, and see if I can rank for those keywords.

    I wrote a hub and put a how to video on this exact process at Want Hubpages Success Then Choose The Right Keywords that describes this very simple process and feel it might help you.
