Ans:Keyword is the most important factor. Identify the keywords, i.e., words or phrases using which your potential customers will search the web.

Any keyword for which the number of listings is less and the number of searches is more gives you a better chance of ranking higher than keywords for which the listings are more and the searches are less.
