I found a name that first, last has 1 million searches and full green bar. But in reverse order last, first, there are 1 million searches but half the green bar. If I were able to write an article with the name in last, first order, would I have better chances of the 1 million searches?
Wayne I could be wrong but I think the green bar actually indicates the amount of competition among advertisers paying for those keywords. in other words a full green bar would indicate a lot of competition among the people paying for the ads not the people writing about the keywords.
If you want to find the number of articles written on that keyword you should simply google the keyword and see who and what is ranking
I hope this makes sense and I hope if I am wrong someone will come along and get us both on the right track.
If you're correct, then thanks a bunch because I have evidentally had that very backwards. If this is so, do you just look for keywords with a lot of searches then and have no regard for the green bar? I'm suddenly getting confused. LOL
Ohma is right. Ignore the green bar. You need to use other tools to assess your likely competition. You can use tools like SEO Qauake (free add on Firefox), Market Samurai (free trial), or do manual searches like allintitle: 'keyword'.
Sorry have't got time to explain them all - really should do a hub on it - use those tips as a starting point to search through hubs and forum posts for more guidance on assessing competiton.

I thought that the order of keywords in a Title did not matter and likewise that the order of keywords entered for a Google Search did not matter. However when you do a search for - Green Tea Health Benefits (A) - and for - Health Benefits of Green Tea (B) - both without quotes the results are...

I keep seeing people making these mistakes so I thought I'd just point them out:1. When doing a search for keywords make sure you select "exact" not "broad." Broad brings in any keyword searches that feature your keywords ANYWHERE in the search sentence. Exact will match how...

Hi, I created a hubpage 4 hours ago and it's now #18 (second page) out of 24,000+ on the results pages of Google. This is for a one-word keyword.My question is, did I make it to the Top 20 just because the page is new, and will this ranking slide in next few days or week?I won't do backlink...

I joined hubpages one month ago and started writing hubs on weekends because I am very busy on working days. I have published 12-13 hubs right now and they are featured (12 of them while the 13th is still under review). Though my score on each hub is above 50 but I am seeing no traffic coming on my...

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 are harder to rank for but I can pump out hubs on those subjust easily. So, do...
