Hi Multimastery, It really an informative site. I've been into SEO recently and found that keyword alone is more than just knowing what is the most popular keywords SE users used to query for results. There are things like competition within keywords that even if you have the keywords right but your rankings is very low, you'll probably had difficulty generating traffic. Most people do not go beyond page 2 in the results section so if you are depending on organic search, setting the right keyword is only step 2. The first step is to get your site indexed by the search engines or directories. Setting the correct keword density in your keyword meta tag, description, site content is also very important. It is fun to do and challenging to compete with other wemaster to move your rank above them ya.

Great input stiener! I can tell you're not new to this stuff. You're absolutely right, there are surely more elements involved than just choosing good keywords because competition is always lurking. The good thing though is that 90% of websites in the search engines are pure junk i.e. spam or scam sites. So it is actually pretty easy to outrank them, even with just basic keyword knowledge. I've done this several times even with keywords that claim to have millions of results. A website building tool called SiteBuildIt! really showed me the difference between distinguishing between "competition" just based on the numbers displayed by search engines versus "Real Competition". The fundamental key is to just crank out great content, include some relevant high demand / low competition keywords and advance from there. There's always something new and exciting to learn in the world of SEO. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge!
