I'm in the process of trying to find some good keywords. I thought I'd found a perfect phrase because it had high volume and low competition. The problem is it contained the concatenated word "word1word2" with no space. When I put this in google I get the message "Did you mean word1 word2".

Should I avoid targeting this as a keyword because of this? Using "word1 word2" instead has a much lower volume and higher competition.

Those are two different keywords. People type both in. If you rank for the keyword with two words run together you can still get traffic for it. It will have lower traffic but it will be easier to get. Work toward both of them.

Google always shows result for single word. If your main keyword is combination of two words such as "online marketing" then for search engine it is two word but for surfer it is one. So there is no need to worry about it.
