    Go to https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

    Put in the keyword you want to compete on say "website building"
    See how many search is performed every month and globally, if its more than say 20,000 then you can say its competitive.

    It doesnt actually say how competitive it is but the more searches done on it the more people are trying to optimize for it.

    Put the keyword in double quotes like "keyword" in google and browse to the last page of results then see how many results you get.

    Also do the same with related keywords to the main keyword too. Usually in competitive niches there are related keywords with less competition.

    try this method...

    use this in google box... "your keyword"
    if the result coming within 15000 result... - use that for make your website post...
    if the result coming within 5000 result... - use that for make blogger and blogs...
    if the result coming within 1000 result... - use that in any classified sites...
    if ...... without competition - best to get index new sites within one hour...
    every .com, or blogs or other sites have those own strength to get rank in google or other search engine...

    comments welcome...

    I agree with thinkinghat. It will take you a little bit of time to learn to use Market Samurai...but their tutorials are top notch and it is time VERY well spent. That tool is absolutely killer for researching a niche. you will be able to find the non-competitive keywords in any market, no matter how competitive.

    Learn to use this tool and it will reward you handsomely.

    It's free in the downloads section, but of course if you want it "guilt-free", you are always welcome to buy it :)

    Yes, get Market Samurai. If you want to get all the information to make a educated decision about going after a niche, that tool is essential. I bought it, but as Wiz mentioned it is in the download section.
