Backlinks can still be a good way to look at competition. Since you are an AJP member, when selecting keywords, you can just refer to the highest number of searches (search volume). Select the ones that are most searched.
The keywords in AJP are already good to use and you just need to select which ones are applicable for your website and which ones are most searched.
The backlinks info is about the number of backlinks the keyword has from all the sites that are showing up on SERPs. The PR pertains to the page rank from sites using that keyword.
These two factors are given for you to know how competitive the keyword is. The higher the number of backlinks means the higher the number of sites are using this keyword or backlinks.
The higher the PR means that these are the page rank for the sites/pages using that are linking for that keyword.
You can use these data to know and weigh how much work you will do when it comes to SEO and backlinking.
Like I said, the keywords that are given to you are already good to use- which also means that they are easy to rank as well. The only thing you need to do is to choose the ones that are fitted for your website and are most searched online.
