    Hey guys,

    I'm building blogs optimized for adsense and ran into bit of dilemma.

    If you had the choose between these two keywords which would you choose?

    1. 5000 exact search with $1 adword CPC

    2. 1000 exact search with $5 adword CPC

    Which is a better option and why?

    It depends. However, I will choose first one. Because advertiser can lower the bid anytime + cpc isn't always same as it's in keyword tool. So go for first one

    I would go with the first one. Neither the CPC or the number of searches are particularly accurate, and certainly not guaranteed to stay at that level for any length of time, but the number of searches is more likely to be closer to the true figure, and also more likely to remain consistent.
