    In the Google keyword tool I was looking at a few keywords for a future website.

    When it says high competition on a keyword that receives about 3k searches? How about 800k searches?
    How tough would it be to rank the 800k keyword?

    Trying to learn a bit more about keywords and maybe get an answer for someone later down the line.

    It is local but the general keyword is "House cleaning" if anyone wants to take a look at the competition...

    The competition that the Google Keyword Tool displays is the competition for ADWORDS, it is NOT the competition of SEO.
    To check the competition of SEO you can use multiple tools such as Traffic Travis, Market Samurai, SEOMoz and so on.

    Appreciate the quick response!

    Just download Traffic Travis to try it...


    UPDATE
    Traffic Travis broke down everything for my in the videos. Not bad for a free tool!
