    Google shows competition for advertisers going for that keyword, it's not about how many people are trying to rank for it. So the higher the competition showed by Google Keyword Tool, the higher the cost in Adwords. So if you get clicks on your site for that keyword, you'll earn nice money from Adsense.

    When you search for a keyword in Google keywords tool, it gives you some information about adsense advertisers, as well as the monthly searches specific to a country as well as a global search count for the keyword you are researching as well as related ones. Using this as a guideline as to how your SEO and IM strategy will work can give you results. It depends naturally on the keyword. Anything to do with movies, music, videos, will generally have you linking 24/7 to gain a footing in that niche, because the competition is really high for that phrase. I have a phrase that has 75000 searches and I am ranking it well, but if it had, let say more than 3 million searches, you would then have to find another keyword to rank well with, because getting a keyword to rank with that many people using it is going to be really hard.

    Other way is to find "Cheaper" words with more narrow search

    Google keyword tool gives just the idea of the searches. Normally these are not true figures that Google shows you but these are better than other tools.

    The competition bar on the keywords tool is to do with advertising, not SERP competition.
