Hi there,


Please can you help me understand the following: 


What would be a possible reason why a keyword would have such low competition but a high CPC? When compared to another keyword that has similar local search volumes? 


keyword: angina | local searches: 2900 | CPC R13.36

keyword: osteoarthritis | local searches: 2900 | CPC R2.90
