    Keyword difficulty is a critical metric when doing keyword research. The higher the value, the harder is to compete with others using that keyword.

    Keyword difficulty (also called keyword competition) is one amongst the most necessary metrics you should think about once doing keyword analysis. The higher is the keyword difficulty, the harder it is to rank on the 1st SERP due to high competition of the ranking websites.

    Keyword difficulty is simple which tells us how hard it is to rank a website or webpage on that keyword searched on any search engine.

    Keyword difficulty (KD) - is a metric that helps you to determine your chances to rank for a certain keyword in the top of the search. In other words, how hard would it be to rank for a particular keyword given the level of competition around it.
