    SEO question for keywords.  It is difficult to fiigure out which keywords to use.

    Some are low search but cost is over $1.00
    Others are a high search and cost varies
    Some are low search but yet are considered to be very competitive.

    What is the best way to sort it all out. I have spent hours for a keyword or two, which I think is ridiculous.

    I don't use adwords except for looking up stats on keywords because I don't think it's worth it.  Instead what I have opted to do is to make up a few words to describe what I do, I then entered them into the Urban Dictionary (kind of as a copyright for proof that I own them), and I heavily promote them.  I also use them as a kind of internet GPS by using them as tags so that I can track them on the net easily through SEs.  I've done this for a few years now.  Now when I check Google Analytics I can also see what keywords people are using other than my own and I can attach them as tags as well so that when the more popular words are searched, mine will also come up.  I expect in another few years my words will start growing their own hits. 
    Just an idea.

    It is not really difficult. The key is to use matching and related keywords that are closely related to your title. Example: if the title of your site is "How to make money online", then you will need to use these keywords and other matching and related keywords that are related to the title. When it comes to keyword tagging, think about what you would type into a search engine to find your site. Also consider what others would type into a search engine to find your site. Example: if you site title is "How to make money online" then I would use keyword tags such as how to make money online,how to make money on the internet, how can I make money online and etc". The keywords in your content need to be closely related to your title. The keyword tags need to be closely related to what people will type into the search engines to find your site as well as closely related to your title and always remember that long tail keywords are just as important if not more important than single or double keywords. I hope this helps. Another thing to remember is that now that Google Panda is in full swing, the only way to distinguish higher paying keywords is by niche topics. Site titles that are created around a niche topic will produce more money from the ads on the site because niche topics are popular and highly searched topics and keywords. The more popular a topic or a keyword is and the more searched that a topic or a keyword is, then the chances of that topic or keyword being a niche topic is very high. Use Google trends and Ebay pulse to find the best niche products, information and topics. You can also use the Google keyword generator to find the highest searched keywords. The best way to find high paying keywords and niche topics is by searching the internet for "High paying niche topics and keywords". Niche topic keywords will produce more traffic to your site and will produce more money for each ad click. I hope this helps even more.

    Imagine you are the one searching for topics and phases covering your articie. Write out those search queries you would have typed inside the search engine. Then go over little script and just strike out one out of any repeated words in the paper. then begin to insert each word into the keyword portal provided. There are advanced pros and cons but this should help you a lot though.

    Obtain a PPC account at Google.  Use their tools and you will see which keywords have the greatest demand and what it would cost to buy the traffic for them.

    It really depends on how YOU want to use the keywords. If YOU want to use the keywords for search engine optimization, select a group of related keywords and keyword phrases and write content. It's NOT going to take hours to write good content.

    If you want to use keywords for SEO low cost and low competition keywords can attract huge traffic. That's why it is important to watch keyword performance in Google Analytics. You have the account with Google Analytics, right?

    If you want to use keywords for SEO - then low cost and low competition keywords can attract huge traffic. That's why it is important to watch keyword performance in Google Analytics. You have a Google Analytics account and use it to get maximum benefit from it, right?

    Here is an example: I have an Affordable Search Engine Optimization blog - that's the name of the blog - at http://SmallBusinessClicks.biz. It is for Small Business owners interested to learn SEO.

    I published an article written by Dan Kennedy about Unique Selling Proposition. It matters for Small Business owners. I had no intention to rank for keyword 'dan kennedy'.

    I found out that the keyword 'dan kennedy' is low competition. It attracts significant amount of web surfers to my blog. Once people get to my blog, they look around and see that the blog is worth their attention. Once people see value, they come back, subscribe and comment.

    My advice: do not shy away from low competition and low cost keywords.

    If YOU want to use keywords for Pay-Per-Click advertising, YOU will have to optimize the campaign anyway. PPC campaign will not start with the best prices. The website has to have very good search engine optimization to get good quality score and better PPC rates.
