How to Interpret the Google Adwords Keyword Tool

Bloggers like me have to know what the Google Adwords Keyword tool is saying to us when we stick those keywords in there.

I can't tell you how frustrating it was, and still is, to learn the Adwords system. Hopefully I can save you some of my initial frustration.

The Adwords tool can bring you a lot of affiliate business, and though I'm still learning it, I do know more than I did. Here's what I know.

Use the above link to get to the Google Adwords Keyword tool, in case you didn't know how to get there. You will see "How Would You Like to Generate Keyword Ideas?" across from a keyword box, and below that, you will see columns.

Step 2 Chose the right tools and columns to get the right stats.If you're looking to get paid from Google affiliates, the first thing you should do with the Adwords tool is to make sure that after you put in your keywords, that you chose "Exact" Match Type and show the Estimated Average CPC column.

Step 3 Chose keywords with moderate volume and full competition bars.Chose the keywords with from 10,000 to 30,000 monthly search volume. These are moderately popular keywords that people will search for, but that aren't oversaturated. You also want to use keywords with a full green bar, representing top advertiser competition. If the bar's all green, you can expect ads relevant to your subject material on your page. If not, you'll end up getting default ads, which don't make any sense to anyone at all ever.
