    Let's say i was to choose a niche but someone tells me that the niche i choose it's keyword inthe search result of google must have less than 50000 search results in google for it to rank easier and quicker and if it's over 50 000 search results woul'd not be easier to rank it. So the niches i find they are all over 50 000search results about 1, 2 00 000 search results you know just over 50 000. Shoul'ld i choose them but will it be easier for them to rank, I realyy don't know much about the search results when doing seo for it.

    better check the competition and research who are the competitors. Search quantity does not make it harder or easier to rank

    There is no correlation between number of searches and competition. A keyword could have 100 searches a month may be very competitive while another gets 300,000 has little competition. Generally speaking, the higher the competition the more profitable the keyword is. If I want to check how profitable a keyword is, I would start a PPC campaign on adwords for a few days and get around 100 visitors and see how well that converts. If that goes well I close my eyes, STFU and get to work.

    Yes and No. I suggest you download Traffic Travis and use the competition analyzer. This will tell you how hard a keyword is to rank. You say you have SEnuke, its a good tool but I wouldnt use it for any of my main backlinks, I would use it on my higher tiers aka tier 3 and 4. Good luck

    Yep, you're right. Even if the keywords has huge search result, it will be easier to rank because they are low competition keywords.
    The search shows the average number of times people have searched for the exact keyword based on the location and the competition show the number of advertiser that showed on the each keyword related to your keyword in search result.

    A little-known trick is to go after 100 phrases with extremely low competition compared to one with just as much competition.

    What do you mean by 1000 phrases. Do you mean 100 sites witth low competition, by low competition just how much shoul'd it be on google. The amount onthe search result. On keyword planner shoul'd the competiton be low as well also?
