This Google tool is designed for PPC users. So here you will see keyword bidding features. Bidding features are not necessary to find the best Google keyword.

Let’s see in the above image, just take two keywords to understand, which is “Google Keyword planner” and “Google planner”.

Here if you see the competition for both the keywords is low. This means you will get traffic but you checked the average monthly search, which is for Google keyword planner it is within 10k-100k, and for Google planner, it is within 1k-10k.

But if you see the bidding is slightly higher for Google planner than Google keyword planner. Most of us will choose google planner, because you will get more money, but don’t do that because you are getting less traffic for this keyword.  Even Google planner has low competition; users searching for this keyword are fewer. So in this case your article may not be ranked. Even if your article is good but due to using the wrong keyword, you will not be able to get traffic.

Competition is high, medium, and low
