    High volume low competition keywords


    When I research keywords on Google keyword tool I somtimes see words such as 'marketing' that has low competition and 165,000 searches. Is this a mistake?

    Surely there would be high competition for a single word?

    Wright - if you're using filters, such as location, the search results will vary greatly. In our research and testing I've found Google's keyword tools to be quite accurate and extremely useful.

    This was without filters, I was perhaps expecting that a low competition keyword to have a low amount of monthly searches. Does this mean that if I were to build a page that targeted the keyword 'marketing' I would have more success / hits than a medium competition keyword with only 1000 monthly searches?
