    They look pretty competitive to rank for the relatively low search volume in my opinion. I hate to say it but most likely the cost to rank them won't be worth it for the return.

    Not sure about your keyword research but if you're looking to cut down time spent researching, I'd recommend taking a look at Itches for Niches (sold on this forum in BST section). I tried it recently and it's really good for finding niches. Fantastic customer support too.

    I say KW 4 definitely, there's a MNS in the top with very low number of backlinks, so with your .net or org you should get to the top in no time, the other keywords are harder and not worth it.
    Second choice KW2

    I´d go with #4 too. It is the easiest to rank of all 4 and has a better CPC than the first 2 ones. But without knowing the keywords we can´t say which would be the best to monetize, so you have to take that decision. Maybe #1/#2 is a money keyword where you could sell a lot and get more than just the money from adsense.

    In a nutshell: Without knowing the real kw I´d stick to #4 :)

    EDIT: I didn´t write because I´m interested in one of the 3 keywords, you can give it to someone else ;)

    The .com being available for #2 is attractive. But the CPC for #4 an relative ease of ranking makes it a nice KW, too. Neither would be extremely difficult to rank for, though.

    In the end, I'd take #2 to get the .com

    I would go wih keyword 2. But dont focus on that keyword only. It would be more smart to look at other keywords related to your niche that you could rank.

    Also, in my experience, low adword competition doesnt give good ctr and cpc. So you may want to avoid that.

    After that, try to take the keyword who involves the most buyers.

    The last one looks the best.

    For me I would never choose kw with 4 or more words. I go for 2 or 3 only.

    The last one (second out of the two) looks like marginally easier competition. CPC higher is a bonus.

    A lot depends on the niche itself. Can you tell us the niche or would it give away the kw? Some niches suck for Adsense sites, others are good. This is the most important thing, the rest is just criteria on the checklist.

    Number 4 is on its way.

    I'll post updates if you are interested and I will reveal the other 3 keywords I am not going to use.
