    One Word Keyword or Multiple words keyword ??

    Hii,

    You can't control what people type into Google. You might want them to search for particular words or phrases, but that doesn't mean that they will. What you need to do is to optimise your site for whatever words or phrases people are actually searching for, where your site would be a relevant answer. Whether that is a single word or a multi-word phrase depends on your site and target audience.

    As of my knowledge you can optimize both the keyword types, single word and multiple phrase. but the things is if you optimize for single word it is very much difficult to get top ranks in search engine. If you use multiple keywords then there is a chance to get to ranks. and as far as i concerned about the competition, Low competition is better than high competition.

    Hi folks, I'm new here but let me help you regarding your question.

    You must first consider going to google keyword tool that will surely help you in finding the right answer to your question. You search in the keywords either multiple words keyword or single word keyword (1 per line) on the left side click 'exact' then uncheck 'broad', You could see which has lots of searches per month on every keyword and you can also see if its high, medium, low competition.

    There you go I hope I've manage to help.

    Just try to optimize your site for related words. It is generally said that long tail keywords have low competition. so you likely have more chance of listing your keyword top in search engine.

    Thereby you can easily increase the website traffic.

    The point of a forum discussion is to allow other members to participate and learn. If you take the discussion out of the public forum and into private messages, it denies others that opportunity and defeats the purpose of a forum.

    single keyword are not always targeted towards the business and very high competative

    lets say if u target website instead of website designer than it may not be a targeted traffic

    someone searching for website may be looking for website designer or may be website jobs or even some website course

    if you come for this keyword on Google first page than if people click on your website your bounce rate will increase

    this is Google way to know that website being shown on first page is not related to keyword and they put u on back pages for that keyword

    So its much better to target 2 words keyword than one
