Oh, and don’t use the keyword presented in the video – use your OWN keyword for your research.

The main criteria we’re after at this point:

SEOT – (SEO Traffic) is more than 80 searches a day
SEOC – (SEO Competition) is less than 30,000 competing pages

Other important factors to consider:

Adwords click-thru-rate (CTR) is more than 2.00% (it is a keyword buyers use for searches). This can help us prioritize keywords.
Also – check the keyword’s OCI percentage. A higher percentage means it is more likely that the keyword is a keyword buyers use. OCI is also used to prioritize your keywords.
