Try to avoid medium competitive keywords and never touch the high competitive keywords. The low-level competition will have less search volume than high competitive keywords, and if you target the low competitive keywords you will rank soon and then once your website is SEO friendly, go with the high search volume keywords.

Competition: This is where you can see the competition to your keyword in-terms of the country you selected. The less competition a keyword has, the more the possibility of ranking a keyword. Always try to choose the low-level competitive keywords where fewer people work and by following some tactics, you can easily rank your keyword.

The average time it will take to rank for the highly competitive keywords is ‘NEVER.’

CPC: Cost per click plays the major role in revenue, if you choose the high CPC keyword with the low competition, then you can rank and as well as you can increase your AdSense revenue. From the picture, the total bid will work as CPC and the higher bid you see, the higher CPC you may get to the keyword. Both the level and high-level range of total bids work as CPC.

Filter: The process where the entire keyword research process make easy to find the exact keyword and the search volume. If you like to make the search report easy, you can filter in the level of competition, Bid (CPC), and Average monthly searches. This filter will make the report and comfortable, and you can quickly pick the keyword.
