I'm just curious, what are the most competitive keywords out there?

It's one thing to get on top of the search engines for a keyword that only has, for example 1000 sites competing.

But if you look at a popular keyword "cars" and type it into google you get about 62 million sites indexed. What's the biggest index you've seen for any keyword?

I don't think www. or .com really count as keywords, especially since the number of competing sites is essentially all of the Google Index.

Besides, who would want to compete for ".com" as a keyword unless they were in the domain registration business?

"Google" is the most competitive keyword on Google.

You'll never rank #1.

'web' is roughly 877 million, but I think even spiderman wouldn't bother to search for just 'web'
