    Low competition keywords have more chances to get ranked for. So you can give it a try.

    That low competition also means that there are less advertisers vying for ads on your website. That's the tradeoff.

    Low competition in google keyword tool means that there is low competition with Ads only!

    That competition doesn't have anything common with rank competition (SEO).

    If you want to really know how hard or easy is your competition, use traffic travis or SERP attacks.

    Since you're asking, I would say no. What I mean is you're looking too much for "low hanging fruit".

    Look for a niche you KNOW and LOVE (willing to write about endlessly) and you can dominate. If you know about "cat breeding" then go for it. You can be jozvaldoskittens.org and rank for a shit-ton of long tail keywords if your site is structured in in a way that is towards kitten breeding topics (categories). Persian, Himilayan and whatever. Then break down into types of hair, shedding, food, temperaments, etc.

    Bottom line is would you rather put all your eggs in 1 basket and rank for that 400 search a day WORD or rank for 100 4 search a day words? Plus other low level strings of searches AND be an authority on that topic?

    This sentence is correct.
