    I am thinking of making a bot that will allow the user to upload a list of possible keywords and then rate these keywords in order of money making potential. The only problem is that I need an algorithm to rate which keywords are better than others. A basic algorithm could be: (Monthly search volume)/(Number of results returned by Google). It would then rank the keywords from highest to lowest number, with the first keyword being the best because of its greater number of monthly searches and less competition.

    Of course, there are more factors than just the monthly search volume and the amount of competition, so I was wondering if anyone else would be willing to share factors that should be taken into account when rating a keyword.

    It'd be fine and dandy, but you'd need to be able to break the keyword tool's captcha (if using G). It's not easy.

    i've been working recently doing something like this, and i had the same question, with no perfect answer :) my main problem is how to compare the competition of a keyword, what's more important to decide that one keyword is more difficult to rank than another one? allintitle results, allinanchor, ... the pr of top sites, the backlinks of top sites..... ?

    i'm not putting into my calculations the monthly searches because i prefer to filter that and use kws with a minimum traffic. my meaning is, if one keyword is having 5million searches per month but it's almost impossible to rank it, i want it outside my system.

    PM me if you want to talk about it
