    Common words are very vague. They are tough to optimise for, but even if you get to the top of the SERPs, people just don't search that way.

    Your example of "cars"...

    What kind? Year? Make? Model? Color? Parts? Repair? Used? New? Rental? Insurance?

    It's just to broad. Even if you get traffic you won't get conversions.

    Car is a very high competitive keywords and its take time to optimize.

    nobody should not use single word like car for searching.they always search what type of car or which branded car.

    for example if you going to buy car,what you have decide.

    Hyundai car,ford car,just like only searching the product.
