    So these last couple of days I've been going around and doing research on SEO and I'm getting really into the game. Since monday, I've averaged 12 hour days researching/buying domains/KW research etc. But the one thing I keep seeing conflicting information on is google adwords competition.

    This is going to be from the perspective of somebody who is making a niche site or a made for adsense site.

    In many threads, I saw that people were excited about the fact that their google keywords had "high" competition ratings because it meant that more people would bid on their keywords through google adwords (they said that it meant more competition to outbid the other auctioneer on the click).

    However, in a couple pretty reputable threads it was said that a low competition score with a high cpc in google is good because there are a not a lot of other people competing for that spot, and that it would be easy to rank and get high clicks.

    So which is it? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you are right "google keywords had "high" competition ratings because it meant that more people would bid on their keywords" & "low competition score with a high cpc in google is good because there are a not a lot of other people competing for that spot, and that it would be easy to rank and get high clicks." Both are different think if you use high competition keyword means your seo worker should be high quality time because you already chose high competition but if you chose low it's low competition so that visitor rate always low but seo work less then high. I will suggest you chose medium competition keyword suppose you want chose 10 keyword so I will suggest you, you can chose first 5 keyword and remain 5 keyword should be supported to first five that's really good and fast way to increasing traffic.

    Thanks for your reply. But if the google competition indicator is just an indicator of the competition for adwords bids, that doesn't necessarily mean the SEO work is going to be higher, right? Couldn't a keyword be high in adwords competition but low in SEO competition (as rated by some program like Traffic Travis, SERP IQ, or Market Samuri), and this would be very good as people are willing to pay and SEO work would be minimal?

    I'm getting a lot of conflicting info on this and it seems as if people don't really know what google adwords keyword competition means.
