I think this a great question.
Competition is a metric, but I believe competition with optimization should be the focus. I have found that in even highly competitive markets, they are not optimizing their site for relevancy. Relevancy will give you high google listings.
You will gain relevancy thru a soft backlinking approach taught in the blueprint.
In my personal experience, low competition kws have not worked for me with the exception of domain name variations & product names.
Hope this helps.
