    I am using Adwords keyword tool to try to find good keywords to start micro niche sites with. I am very new, and have a few questions. I searched the forum and couldnt find anything helpful using adwords. To start off with, my main worry is the competition correct? As long as competition says low, and the CPC is $1+ this is worth looking into?

    As long as the competition says low then the higher the monthly searches the better? For example I found a keyword that has low competition, 18,100 monthly global searches, 12,100 local monthly searches, and $7.51 CPC. If I can get an EMD for this, should I be jumping on this keyword?

    G0ogle keyword tool rule no #1 click on the "about this data" link and read what each and every data means. This is very important as most people who are new to GKWT end up selecting wrong keywords! One of the common mistake people do is about the competition column. It is NOT seo competition. It is adwords competition. The higher the value the better it is if you are gonna monetize the keyword with Adsense.

    Also analyzing keyword competition is a different ball game here. To judge the competition, you need to properly analyze the on-site/off-site SEO factors of the top 10 sites ranking for that keyword. Tools like market samurai can help you in that.

    ok, i believe I have this right now! Hopefully! using adwords, exact match clicked, US, English. I found a keyword that seems to be good? high competition, global 9,900, local 2,900, CPC $2.89 .com .net and .org all available. If there are no other EMDs, must I worry about non EMD competition or should I be good to go with this keyword. Is there anything I forgot to check? This keyword should be easy to rank?
