For all you computer wizzes out there please don't laugh. I truly do not unserstand what I should be looking for when I try and use this tool. I think it should be something like high volume searhes with low competition but I am just not sure.
Ok go ahead and laugh if you must but help me out anyway.
You get it right. You want relatively high volume with relatively low competition. Now, if you are having adsense in mind, you also want to add the cost of the click to your equation.
Mish thanks again. As always it is so nice that you are so helpful.
Izzy to tell you the truth I used to think I had a pretty good handle on this whole Internet thing but that was before I actually tried to make it work for me. Now I read some of the stuff about SEO and Backlinks and keywords and I am just hopelessly lost.
It's normal girls, we all were there. It will start getting together later.
ok just found another one. What in the world is a longtailed Keyword? and how is it better or worse than a regular ceyword.
Oh that's easy. Those are just ceywords with long tails
"hubpages" would be a normal keyword, as well as "hubpages scam". Yet "hubpages perpetuated scam on me" would have a long tail
Thanks again and thank-you for noticing that my spell checker had a brain bubble. :LOL:
Basically, a longtail keyword is a keyword phrase used to narrow down a broad term. For example, you may want to do a search for the term "boots" which will bring a lot of searches with a lot of competitions. A longtail narrows it down to say "brown leather boots" with a lesser search volume than the broad term and usually less competition.
Thanks Richard I have read some of your hubs. No disrespect intended It has nothing to do with your knowledge and talent as a writer but honestly I leave your hubs with more questions than answers. It is not your fault you are a very good writer it is just that I need you to explain things to me like you would explain them to your Grandmother. I really wish someone would do a hub with nothing but terms a definitions about all this stuff.
This is over a year old but the information as far as terms go should still be up to date

I am EXACTLY with you on this. I've spent a few hours today trying to sort it all out, understand it, yadda yadda ... Only, I don't even understand the definition of the topic, much less the description that follows. (Know what I mean?) Just read one on backlinking. I can tell it was REALLY well written and helpful, but it ASSumed the reader knew what backlinking is. I didn't / don't.
Gonna check out the links some of you have provided here; thank you in advance if I miraculously lose my blond-hair!
By the way, Ohma and others who start threads: PLEASE try to make them topic specific, so that those of us who are limited with time can still scroll / cruise the forums but quickly see something relevant. (That was worded badly; I do not have time to write well at the moment...) In other words, for this thread, rather than "Can Someone Explain This To Me," something more like, "Can Someone Explain the Adwords Tool to Me?" (If I'd seen that, I'd been here in a heart beat). So glad you posted this!!
LOL I'm sorry, I've been there, we all have. I'll see if I can fit a keyword tutorial for the absolute newbie in sometime this weekend.
If you ever need more explanation from my hubs just leave a comment, I always try to respond quickly.
I am glad you were not offended.
How about a Thesaurus of Internet marketing terms?
Of course I'm not offended, lol
Give me a day, I'll work on it tomorrow and post back here when it's finished. I'll put it in the simplest terms I can
Ohma, I am with you there. If I knew the definitions I would write the hub! I don't know what half of this means. I am still getting the hang of adding pictures to make hubs more inviting! I am glad you asked these questions.
I have been here for almost three years and don't understand all of it myself thank God for Misha and Live Richard to come to the rescue, I to am learning something new.
How big of a challenge was that for you. It must have seemed like you were teaching pre-school. Thank you so much!
Something I have noticed with the keyword tool is that sometimes the traffic is just reasonable (worth trying for) and the competition bar is empty or close enough to empty, but when I use that keyword in a google search it brings back huge hits, 10's of millions or more. With that many hits I tend to think, I am not good enough at this stuff to compete with 10's of millions of other sites. I also wonder if the low competition bar might mean that the max CPC might be rare to actually get?
So it has no relevance to how many people are publishing info on that keyword?
I think it has relevance though it's not going to be completely accurate. Like sunforged pointed out, the bars represent the level of competition between advertisers that are actually paying and bidding on those keywords for PPC campaigns. They don't represent how many publishers are using those keywords to rank with their content. This is why you take that keyword and do a search in quotes "keyword phrase" to determine how much content is actually indexed on Google for that keyword phrase.
I use the bars as a starting point to gauge the level of paying competition vs. non paying but then always use the keyword in quotes to find actual competition.
I show how I do this with screen shots in my "keywords - A long tail keyword tutorial" hub.

Hello everyone,I am new here, so I apologize in advance if this question has been asked before. I was curious as to how much time is it going to take to start getting some god traffic from Google? How much traffic do you get everyday on an average? Your help would be really appreciated

I heard many times about promoting your hub, and making it SEO friendly or SEO optimized. How to do that exactly? And what to do?

Hi guys,For a while I've been using Google's Keyword Tool to research high-paying keywords and their estimate monthly traffic. Normally, what I do is that I look for Low competition keywords with around 1,000 monthly searches, and less than a million results in Google Search, then I look at the...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
