    low comp= easier to rank for.
    high comp= potentially harder to rank for.

    higher comp could be worth it in the end though. overall, it depends on the niche and what your goal is.

    You can start with low competition keywords, then move it up a notch to higher comp keywords with the potential for more traffic. Just keep your keywords relevant so you get the traffic you want.

    Hi jerkd3,
    Lower is better, but same time don't be afraid to compete with others.

      Start off with low competition and as your site becomes established and is receiving regular amounts of traffic you can start targeting higher competition keywords.
