    I am learning keyword research from past few days and I found out for keywords there is quite a big difference in KC data of Moz and Long tail pro. LTP showed 16 (very easy) and Moz showed 36 (medium). What do you think could be reliable data? when I analyzed individual link I actually thought LTP might be right because the first results are all google local business listings. still moz is showing 36% , This is confusing!! Please help

    You guys need to stop relying on tools to tell you how competitive a keyword is. Learn how to analyze the SERPs by hand, it's the only way.

    Both tools are using some algorithm of their own to compute their keyword difficulty calculations. You can use them as a guide but don't rely 100% on them. Here is a good article on analysing the SERPs for competition research: http://backlinko.com/keyword-competition
