    Sorry I have tried to do the search function on this one but I could really use some more accurate answers. :)

    I am trying to do some beginners keyword research by finding high search keywords with low competition by using the google adwords tool :) I think I found one (obviously I won't give out the keyword lol) that would work out pretty well but I am wondering if I am overlooking something.

    Keyword: Bread (example lol) - 12k Global Monthly Searches - 2400 Local monthly searches

    Competition when doing "bread" in google about 520 results with 18 pages displayed. When looking at the competition the sites havent been updated very recently (no activity for most pages for 1+ month)

    Is this one a winner or is there other things that I have to check before starting any of the other work around the keyword?

    Hey there, I recommend you to take a closer look on your competition. You can use the Market Samurai software for that, there's a tutorial somewhere in the forum on how use the trial version without time limit. You should check the amounts of backlinks, how well optimized they are, age... etc.


    The sole fact that they have no recent updates is not enough to determine if the competition is weak.
