    The best tip I can give is to spend 90% of your time finding a good seed keyword.

    Lots of people get frustrated when using keyword tools because they are starting with competitive keywords. A technique I like to use is the 'Top 10 Technique'.

    Type in Google 'Top Ten ******' - Replace with whatever niche you're interested in and then enter those words as seed keywords. Examples could be top ten albums, games, movies, tourist destination, youtubers, tv shows US etc etc etc. This is a great way to find keywords you wouldn't have found otherwise.

    Hope that helps!

    Just to further clarify I'll give you an example.

    1) I google 'Top Ten PC Games' - Which takes me to an article with ten popular pc games.
    2) I pick a game from list and enter it into the keyword tool
    3) Do keyword research on that game and analyse competition. If too competitive I'll just move onto another keyword.

    This is the most effective keyword research method I know and it's ridiculously simple.

    Thanks for the awesome help. But I would like to know, How to select a Good Keyword?

    In the LTP, There are many fields like: Keyword Name, Local Searches (USA), Google Title Competition, CPC, Advertiser Competition and much more.

    Can you tell me the best practice to select ? (Can you tell me the best range in which the above fields must be present?)

    Hahaha! Actually, I am myself a Youtuber Marketer. I know Youtube is good source to learn but the problem is most of them are just affiliates and there main is to make money instead of teaching. That's why I use BHW as the learning source :)

    Agree here. Although no one would make a 10 min+ video tutorial without having a benefit from it you can still find some good ones.

    Adidam, I would ignore the Title Comp fields in LTP. These are just an indicator of the number of results. In my humble opinion, and take into consideration that I am also just starting out, you are only competing with the top 10 results in the big G.

    You don't care about the other 500 000 sites that also rank somewhere in G. You need to look at the top 10, to determine whether you can get in there.

    Look at the following things in LTP for the pages that are ranking top 10:

    - keyword in title
    - page authority of each page
    - juice page links

    For each of the above, the lower the scores the better. If you look at the 10 results, and you see that there are 2/3 (or more) without the keyword in the title, that is good.

    Same thing with page authority, if you see a couple of results with low page authority, that is good.

    If you see results that have little (10 or less) juice page links, again that is a good sign.

    Site age, and PR also plays some role in the rankings, but I don't worry too much about those.

    The more of these type of low quality results, the better your chances of ranking.

    If you come across a results page where all the results have the keyword in the title, they all have PA more than 30, and they all have 10+/20+ juice page links, you should definitely move on.

    If you have LTP, you can use the inbuilt KC value. I use this as a quick check. If you can find something below 30 you might be able to rank if you know what you are doing, just to be safe check the first page manually as well

    You didn't mention how you want to monetize, so I will assume Adsense for now.

    If you can find a keyword, that fits the criteria below, just go ahead and build out the site:

    - low kw competition according to metrics above
    - local exact match searches of roughly 1000
    - avg CPC of $1
    - high advertiser competition (this is important)

    Now, run with this!
