    Hi,

    Its very simple. Low competition kw means that whatever kw you choose its search volume is very low. it mean if your kw is in top of SERP but it will not give much benefit to you. And high competition means its search volume is very high. it mean if your kw is in top of SERP then it will give much benefit to you.

    As per my point of view high competition kw is much better.

    If you have a keyword with low competition then it ranks at higher on Google since there are lees competition for that keyword.

    hey frnd...
    choose your keywrd frm google adword keyword tool...
    choose those keywrd which has low compition and high global rank...
    the diffrence between low compition and high compition keywrd is that
    when you choose a high competition keywrd the chances that website will rank on the frst page decr..
    bcz the compettion on the similar keywrd is more...so alwys choose keywrd with low compition nad high global rank..
    then use the latent samentic indexing...
    using that keyword create a title...use dat keywrd in meta tags,description alt text in image..
    repeat those keywrds in ur post as much as you can...choose 3-5 keywrds in a post..

    All Above point are correct..
    Beneficial is only "High-Competition keyword" as the search for those keywords are high...

    Depending on the keywords for which you want to get high rankings, you have to employ different tactics. Keywords with less competition require different tactics than keywords with high competition.If you target long keyword phrases with little competition, then the relative value of on-page web page optimization is very high.

    The kind of keywords you should use for your site, depend on what you're trying to do. If you are making money with adsense, then high competition is good.

    Depending on the keywords for which you want to get high rankings, you have to employ different tactics. Keywords with less competition require different tactics than keywords with high competition. Use Google Adwords tool, start monitoring the results each week with the reports Google Adwords can generate for you. This will tell you which keywords are returning the best CPC rates. You have to experiment a bit with your bidding to get the right balance. CPC is generally effected but it doesn't necessary always mean high competition - high cpc or low competition - low CPC.
    use other cool tools like SpyFu and WebWHO. SpyFu gives you a pretty good idea of not only the keywords your competition is bidding after but also compares their budgets to yours.
    In conclusion I believe the competition does not indicate the CPc; it can have a reflection of it though as you would think the more people buying those keywords the higher the prices can be. However CPC varies from niche to niche as well. Generally with higher CPC it means that it is more profitable and more value thus the traffic is more profitable and more valuable and so more people might be also targeting

    High competitive means high CPC too, and high traffic. low competitive means they will have less impression and less clicks even you bid high, but normally the cpc will be less

    Personally to me low competition keywords mean 2 - 4 keyword phrase, which has some kind of competition and some level of searches (low or middle). It's more broad match keyword which leads to specific product page or resource. For example, the keyword "learn the guitar".

    High competition is 1 - 2 keyword phrase which is very competitive and has very large search volume in a month. For example, keyword "SEO". In practice, there's almost impossible to get nr. 1 for that keyword, because of the very competitive market.

    Maybe with budget of 5 million $ and 20 years of 20h work a day you'll be first for that keyword:)

    Low competition keywords have fewer pages competing for first page ranking. Hope that helps
