    Keyword is a popular tourist location

    local searches 1,000,000
    cpc .87
    competition low

    The above is from Long Tail Pro software.

    I am not interested in the cpc as I'm not relying on adsense etc for this site. With 1000000 searches and low competition, I'm thinking this is a good keyword? Now
    the actual keyword is the name of the place. Is the competition low because of the cpc or just that the actual place is so big that it would be no use in trying to compete?
    (sorry if I still sound like a noob - but - well - I am! :) )

    Thanks

    Check out the keyword manually by checking the current top ranked sites and their backlink profiles. If you think you can beat them you could be on a a very valuable keyword.

    In LTP the last column is "advertiser competition" and that's where you will see "low", "medium" or "high"....if you are referring to that then that means a lot of advertisers are bidding on that keyword and not the ranking competition itself. Click on the keyword and you will see the keyword competition for rankings from there you can gauge it.
