    Hi Guys

    When it comes to looking a Google keyword research tool and typing on keywords. How do I know which keyword is favourable to rank for?

    It gives the following:

    [TH="class: sBU sPU, colspan: 1"]Competition, [/TH] [TH="class: sBU sPU, colspan: 1"]
    Global Monthly Searches and ​
    [/TH] [TH="class: sBU sPU sJU, colspan: 1"]
    Local Monthly Searches ​
    For example:

    Keyword: XXXXXX - Competition: Low - Global Searches: 49,500 - Local Searches: 4,400

    Is the above keyword worth going for? How do I know its a keyword is worth going for?

    [TR="class: sLT sCU"] [/TR]

    Home Page:
    look at the top 20 websites in google ranking for that keyword.

    you can have <10 exact searches, and not even make it into top 100, or 10000 exact searches and rank #1 by next day.
    Everything depends on the competing websites.

    If the firstpage has 2 youtube video's, 2 yahoo answers, High PR forums & blogs, high PR authority sites, EMD's, .... then forget it

    if the first page has no youtube vids, no yahoo related q's & a's, websites with PR 1-2, no authorites, no EMD's -> hit that one!

    make sure to target long tail keywords (very important)

    in the end there is no exact telling if you will or will not rank easily. depends on your experience, budget & work. Google is not human, it does not have compassion, it's a gamble :)

    goodluck & use search button :)

    This is easy. Choose a keyword that you like for what ever reason. Then look at the first page results and see how many indexed pages each site has. If the majority of the top ten sites have less than 50,000 pages of indexed content each, then you will be able to compete in the niche if you are a good writer. Just look at their source code of the competition for their keywords. They should be in their meta title and description. Also their categories should all be keywords as well.

    Thats it man, welcome to the SEO Revolution of 2013:)

    I also use ultimate niche finder and it will score each keyword according to OCI or online commercial intent. you could probably get that for each keyword manually if you google it
