    Hello, I just read some post here about keyword research..

    I just want to know how to use the google keyword tool,

    Do I need to put check the exact rather than the phrase or broad?

    What is the acceptable Global Monthly Searches?

    I know that the CPC must be $1, but is that real CPC?

    Another thing, do I need to check spyfu for advertiser for that exact keyword?

    What if there are no advertiser on that exact keyword?

    Thanks..

    The CPC you see is the average more or less (If you are new with Adsense you will get less than that for sure)

    And yes, you need to check the exact phrase

    Anyway man, the name Saber is familiar to me :) where are u from ?

    That's personal preference, how much work does that 1000 global monthly searched keyword need to rank in top 3? Maybe the CPC makes it worthwhile... You need to learn how to analyze the stats and decide what's worth the effort and what to leave behind.

    Here's an example:
    Keyword 1: 2000 local monthly searches, $5 CPC, easy competition
    keyword 2: 10,000 local monthly searches, $2 CPC, medium competition
    keyword 3: 50,000 local monthly searches, $1.25 CPC, high competition

    I'm obviously going to start with keyword 1 here as it will have the quickest return. I may then go back and look at keywords 2 and 3 again and see if they have any LSI variations than I can go after.

    Also keep in mind that global monthly searches can be very deceiving if your site only ranks well in say the U.S.A. and 90% of that global traffic is coming from say China. Know your strengths and stick to them :p
