    I searched a few months for good Keywords, I found a few easy KWds with about 15k global search and ranked them between #1 and #5 on first page . According to longtail platinium they are with score about 20 and easy. Now I found another KWds with 500 000 and above global searches marked also as Easy (17 ) and easy and low cpc on adwords but it appears to be hard to rank.
    I'm a little confused as I'm not so skilled ... does the higher search count make the word harder , even if its showing easy ?

    A highly searched keyword is GENERALLY harder to rank, this is not always true tho.

    How harder is this to rank this 500k KW compare to the 20k ?
