    my keywords i am working on have always been high competition according to google keyword tool, but now i checked and they are all low competition. How is this possible? Search volumes are the same. Maybe googles latest updates are involved?

    Google's keyword tool shows competition data for AdWords only. Low competition keywords indicate that there are less people advertising on that particular keyword. It has nothing to do with SEO.

    Getting from high to low competition on AdWords usually means that advertisers stopped advertising on that keyword (which in most cases happens because it wasn't profitable). But, this is not the only option - the same thing happens with seasonal products (advertisers only advertise in high season).

    Low bids on that kw -> low conversion rates -> possible decreasing trends on search.

    You should monitor your traffic on those kw's.

    There are so many facepalms in this thread.

    First off, it's based on Adwords competition. Second of all, of course Adwords competition can change. Did you think once something is high competition it's going to stay like that or something? Come on man, seriously?
