    In Adwords -
    1-competition metric for search ads competition only , not for organic result !! and high competition = High Price :)
    2-it mean many people targeting ads for this keyword, its include all broad, phrase & exact keyword search type.
    3-run the ads,get high quality score and ur ad will place within 7 ads

    Still u have doubt mean i'm happy to help u
    Thank U

    ok thx buyprdomains, let me get this right... i want to rank a review site for say dentists.. my main keyword is (dentist..city) do you mean to include dentist...zip code for other keywords? im not doing ppc or any ad campaigns just using a backlinking tool to try and rank and was wondering how hard it was to rank for a local search term with very low search results.. i was confused cause on traffic travis it said it was low search but very competitive...but thats for ppc, i was confused cause thought that played a part in ranking on 1st page. didnt know it was just about ads.
