    I've been told whilst I've been creating micro-niche sites - pick keywords with a low competition. As far as I'm aware, that just means how popular it is for ad buyers and is kinda irrelevant to bloggers & content creators. Why is this important? Am I missing something?

    I think "competition" is very important. You can know if it's hot keywords. Then you can set up keyword to suit your strategy.

    The competition you're looking for is different than the one that is shown in adwords. You need to check backlinks of the sites on the first page as well as how well they are optimizing for that keyword in their content.
