    Hi

    Looking for a KW for a new site but am still getting a little confused and what else should I check to ensure Big G is correct

    So its 2 words and big G says that competition is Low, 22,200 monthly searches, 1,900 local (UK I assume) and Approx CPC £1.65 ($2.60USD)

    This is where I get a little confused.

    Traffic Travis. I put my KW in and only 2 items show. my KW and my KW with an 's' on the end. My KW has no google searches and the other has 329 searches

    If I put my KW into spyfu I get this

    CPC - $0.92 - $1.14, 2 advertisers, 36-51 clicks per day, Search Results 44,200,000, cost\day $29-$62 and search volume 58

    I can get the KW + review dot com

    Also looked at a variation which confused me even more..

    Big G reports Medium comp, 12,100 global searches, 2,400 local and £2.75($4.39) CPC

    TT - nothing

    Spyfu - No results for "KW"

    when I type the KW into big G I am seeing what I would expect...

    Anyone able to help filter the about into something that I can understand.

    Thanks in advance

    When using G Tool are you choosing "exact" searches so that it shows [brackets] around your keyword? This is a must and a common mistake.

    To be honest all of them are just a guide, and nothing more... If this is your first site, than the best way to decide if it is good or not is to look around in your own life, and the life of people you know...

    Are they interested in whatever the keyword is? Would they search for what it is using the keyword your looking at? Would they buy what your keyword is over the internet?

    Don't get me wrong you should use the tools that are out there, but I wouldn't use them as a be all, end all... Just get to know one of the systems really well and you will get a feel for the traffic that you can get...

    I know I'm not giving you a definitive answer but more of a philosophy, but its one that works for me... Just use them as guide posts...

    Good luck...

    Thanks. Now that puts a totally different spin on things. searched not as high and CPC are quite low

    Thats good advice, thanks and it does help. I was trying to look kw based on an interest of mine which would make it easier to write content for it.

    I now have a better idea of what I am looking at.

    Thanks both for your really speedy replies

    OK.. if you did an exact match for a KW and big G came back with high competition, 1300 global and £1.49/$2.37 CPC and sfyfu gave this :- CPC - $0.92 - $1.14, 2 advertisers, 36-51 clicks per day, Search Results 44,200,000, cost\day $29-$62 and search volume 58

    Do you think this is worth perusing or should I be really looking at something with a higher global search

    Thanks again

    Hi :)

    I did the math and came to the following conclusion:

    G00gle gave u visits per month so: 1300/30=43,3 visits per day
    If spyfu said 39-51 clicks per day...?!

    Lets do the math again by trusting g00gle:

    depending on your niche and your template/design the ctr could be 5-35%
    1300*0,05=65*2,37$/154$month
    1300*0,35=455*2,37$=1078$/month

    BUT: You never get 100% of searches, so on average #1 gets like 40%. So...

    154$*0,4=61,6$/month
    1078$*0,4=431$/month


    By trusting Spyfu: 39-51clicks on 1$ average

    39clicks*30days*1$=1170$/month
    51clicks*30days*1$=1530$/month



    And NOW, the version i think is the real version(u could test it, its just my opinion):

    average of about 100 clicks per month on #1, CPC is just the cost to advertise, no one said its the amount of money u´ll get if u publish :)
    In this case i would trust Spyfu a bit more: average 1$

    so its simple math: 100clicks*1$=100$/month


    It could be higher or lower but I think its the middle of both versions so this REALLY should be in there (maybe higher :))


    If you already got the domain, try it. If not - search for a better one, u will defenitely will find smth better!


    Cheers
