    Question Keyword Competition


    How do you figure how competitive a keyword is going to be to optimize for on Google, or any Search Engine?

    Does it have to do with the keyword search volume and/or the amount of links the competitors have?

    I am a little curious...

    I look at the SERP's for the keyword and look at how many of the websites are using SEO techniques in their title and directory file names if you see alot of this then you know it will take extra work to place high in the results.
