    So I've been looking for keywords to use to start a website and I am using LongTail Pro trial.

    I put in my keywords, and in the results saw a single Keyword that have 60K Local Search, has Low Competition, with a $1.17 CPC.

    Is this normal? Or should I stay away from a single keyword? and go with a long tail keyword.

    that single keyword should be your main keyword. Long tail keywords is a plus :)

    Where do you get low competition from? Is it from the advertisers competition column? Because that is something completely different, and has nothing to do with the seo difficulty. You need the KC score from long tail platinum. If you are just using the trial version, then you will need to go into top 10 results themselves and analyze the information. Generally one word keywords will be difficult to rank.

    Take a screen print of the top 10 results. Edit out the url, and title data, so that you just have the data from the "Page Authority" through to "site age" columns; and then post the image here, so we can take a look at it.

    Your right :)

    It doesn't matter unless you look at the competition. After looking at "Competition Analysis" PA and PL are way too large to compete.

    So my questions is... what ranges am I looking for? What are target numbers to look for to consider a "keyword or keyphrase" a candidate to pursue?

    Also, would this be a good 2 word Keyphrase to try and Optimize?

    Avoid single keywords. You will probably never rank well for the keyword you discovered, especialy when it has such a high search volume. Target keywords made up of 3 words and above - nothing less.

    Always check competitors on organic search. Bl, PA, DA etc.
