    Here goes, when you look at at words, do you look for (when finding for good keyword):

    1. The most competition or the least?
    2. Most number of search or the least?

    I think I am getting a little mixed up here. Hope can get it clear smile

    Do you mean google adsense?

    When using the google keyword tool you should ignore the "competition" bar because that's for advertisers - not for people who display adverts.

    I'd say go for words that have between 5000-15000 hits a month. And remember to hit "exact" not broad.

    To check your competition click the word and a google search will show many people are writing on that precise topic.

        Great! Glad you are also using it. Really works but it takes a couple of days (if lucky) to see the effect. Normally it takes a week tor eally see the big effect big_smile

          Some can take months to take off - most hubs need 6-9 months to get serious traffic.

    I always start by looking at the ones with the highest number of searches, and then look at how hard I think it's going to be to rank for them (by actually doing the search and looking at all the sites on the first page) and if I don't think I can do it then I work my way down the list to lower traffic terms until I find one I like the look of.
