It depends what you mean by competitive. Do you mean the term that returns the most results, or the term that is most fiercely fought for?

Methinks it's sex.

Porn is the single biggest money making biz on the net.

Haha I really meant in terms of the number of entries, Google falls far short in this area. What I have come up with thus far:

Sex - Results 1 - 10 of about 44,000,000.
News - Results 1 - 10 of about 185,000,000.
web - Results 1 - 10 of about 186,000,000

Any advances?

as long as we realize the number of returned results is a very bad basis for a competition metric.

"lunch" turns out to be more 'competitive' than "viagra"

but then, I guess there's no such thing as a free lunch.

we really arent going anywhere with this, until we define what is meant by "competitive"

is it:

a, the most number of results returned?
b, the most competitive word targeted by SEOs.?
c, the most profitable?

as I have previously stated, there are a number of words where I would gladly pay $10,000 a month to be on page 1 listing, with NO, repeat NO tricks being played, and the site passing a hand edit by a Google editor.

This was just for fun Shak (just seeing what single KW returned the max. no. of results), but OK lets use your a,b,c list and see where this goes.

I reckon 'search' could almost fit all three (280,000,000 results, competition of the likes of Google and Yahoo and a pretty reliable user base to generate money from :))

Yup, who cares about the word "the" or "yahoo."

I thought for sure it was widgets with all the recent talk about the keyword. Have I been wasting my time with all these widgets pages? :)

alternative suggestion - most expensive phrase on AdWords; if tied at maximum, then the lowest average position this would get you.

Or maybe the highest possible daily AdWords spend?

Got to let the market decide!

narrowly betting ..
'a' with 12,300,000

GOOGLEGUY please.... we need relief.... soon
