    I was using the google adwords tool to search on some keywords that I thought might make a good nice product to sell / affiliate with, the keywords (or some of the suggested related terms) often had low competition but high (sometimes in the millions) search results. I can't figure out if this means this is a good niche to be getting into (i.e money to be made) or simply means it's only a good niche if you're using google adwords to promote it. Or perhaps neither as the term despite having a lot of searches isn't the sort of ad that someone clicks on? I asked a few questions in the niche sticky thread but I was a bit confused at the answers, due to my lack of understanding on the subject.

    Can anyone clarify and explain this to me, I'm not new to making cash online but very new to anything internet marketing related.

    Basically does low competition + high search results = profit?

    Appreciate it.

    Thanks

    If you find a niche that has tons of visits, but low competition,probably you'll be rich in a couple of months.
    If you find a niche that has high competition, I recommend to stay a away from it, unless you're a SEO guru.
    I'm not an expert either. I'm searching for low competition keywords that have more then 10.000 searches/month. You should try this too.

    Well when I stick certain keywords in usually they themselves aren't low competition but the tool suggests alternative similar searches and some of those are low competition with massive search results.

    Don't get tunnel vision and just focus on what your seeing inside the keyword tool, you need to actually look at the first page of g00gle and see what ads are running and how they are worded. Also if you can get your hands on tool MS or TT that can look at the competition, this can save you tons of time, money and headache. There is a lot steps to go through with keyword research and everybody has a there on way of doing it, so pick a way and do it until you figure out what type of numbers you like to see in the tool and go from there. There are some good threads on here about the subject. basstrackerboats thread would be a good place to start.

    Google's keyword tool is not newbie friendly. The CPC you're looking at is what an advertiser might expect to pay if they advertise on Google (and even that estimate is very wrong, but that's a story for a different thread). You'd want to look at the contextual targeting tool's estimate price, then multiply that by .68 and that'll give you a much better estimate on how much you can expect to make a click (assuming you're going the Google Adsense route).

    However, the traffic estimates are pretty good, but again, even if you ranked 1st for that particular keyword you won't receive that much traffic in a given month.

    And search results hardly matter. You're only concern should be the first page, as you shouldn't focus on competing with the 2nd, 3rd, etc pages.

    In short, your keyword could be profitable, but without doing the proper research it's hard to say. Anyways, good luck.
