I’ve found keyword difficulty data to be meaningless in practice. We’re ranking top-3 for a few keywords rated over 90 difficulty with 6 figure search volume, and not even ranking top 10 for other keywords with <50 difficulty and much lower volume. Same content strategy and quality across these articles.
If you think you can fulfill search intent better than available top results, publish an article for that query and ignore KW difficulty.
