    adwords comp. has nothing to dew with seo competition, low adwords competition means that there are not many advertisers wanting to advertise for that kw, it also means that your CPC will be low normally

    Low AdWords competition can mean two things:
    1.) GOLD - you have found a buying keyword no one else knows about (0,0000001% chance)
    2.) The keyword is informational and not buying, people don't spend money there

    Second option is much more likely, so I suggest testing the keyword with AdWords to see if there is an earning potential before investing time and money in SEO.

    adwords low competition means no advertiser who wants to advertise on that keyword.

    You can check spyfu.com for previous advertiser on that keyword.

    Note that low adwords competition only applies on adsense, you can also try to put amazon, cpa, or cb products.

    just create the blog post 1 or 2 articles and see where your site stands
    if its anywhere close to top then you can do little seo and get it on first page
    even if the cpc is low i think 49k searches will be worth your time and money if you spend any on seo
    otherwise blogger is always free
    you don't have much to loose anyway

    Sounds like an informational keyword. Are there affiliate programs for this product?

    having a pr8 sitting on top spot generally means running a mile from it
    are those results broad match or exact match
    if low competition for adwords this generlallly means adsense is useless
    so you will definitely need to find another monetization method
    Not all keywords are Money keywords, some are where people are just looking for information
    and have no intention of buying

    I strongly recommend people learn about keyword research before starting their IM career.
    choose a very easy keyword to rank, (ignore the number of searhes, even 100 searches a month is good
    so you can see what is involved in ranking.

    There are plenty of tutorials available. The bigest mistake people make is they spend 10 minute on keyword reseach and months trying to rank useless keywords

    Use the tools, but more importantly use your head.
    keyword research is 99% common sense,

    If you want to buy a product, what keywords would you use, what variations show the same intentions
    Example:
    acne cure (Great)
    acne treatments (Good)
    acne images (terribl)

    If your looking for a local business, separate the ones who are just browsing and this who really need the service

    plumber New York City (Great)
    how to fix a leaky faucet (terrible)

    I spend 6 hours on keyword research, 2 hours on building the website

    If I get the 1st one wrong I'm stuffed
    If i get the 2nd one wrong its an easy fix

    Hope this helps

    I only use G's keyword tool to do a quick and dirty overview. If a keyword has low comp it's usually for a good reason, like trademark issues or something that is not worth the time or money to pursue.

    Hey, could you please explain this? Not sure what you mean, I'm not native english so maybe I'm not just familiar with this phrase.

    Overall great advice, I stored it into my textfile of wisdom for future benefit :)

    in your mind
    you have to research more and if the adwords is low it will probably not be good for adsense either IMO

    This does not sound like a good keyword at all.

    1. It doesn't appeal to a world-wide audience, severely limiting who you can market to.
    2. Low adwords competition is usually a BAD thing. This means not a lot of advertisers are bidding on the keyword so it's probably not a profitable one.
    3. Edu/Gov sites taking up the front page is further indication that it's not a keyword suitable for commerical use. Commerical Use = PROFIT.

    Like others have said, what in the world makes you think you will easily outrank the .gov and .edu domains with PR going up to 8 on the top 10?

    And yes, low adwords comp would imply that this keyword has low commercial value.
