    Do these stats look good for a niche website?

    Keyword (without quotes) - 644,000 results
    "keyword" (with quotes) - 3,500
    intitle:"keyword" - 60
    monthly search volume - 4,400

    I do not want to give too much away so please dont ask for what it is.These results are for a "medium tail" keyword. What I mean is it describes a feature of the product line. The product ranges between $150 - 1200. Do you guys think I should try it?

    I apologize if this is a stupid question but Im still a little unsure of what niche numbers should look like.

    If it's a "buying" keyword that's good. I try to use "buying" keywords that have less than 6500 so this fits. Then again it depends on SEO, the product and how you are trying to make money off it. Not to mention if you have a Top level domain.

    What would be good windows for these numbers?

    Example: Keyword (without quotes) - less than 500,000?
    Keyword (without quotes) - less than 5,000?
    etc........

    I always wondered what the ideal high/low would be for these search results.

    Any ideas?

    Well, any keyword is good if it have a good or at-least a reasonable monthly search volume.

    Even if you have only 60 results for a keyword and there is no one searching for that keyword, waste of time working on it.

    So, may be you can rank your keywords based on monthly search volume and try those by your ranks.

    What about your competition on the first 2 pages? Are they big names? Are they authority stores and merchants? etc

    The first two pages have very little competition as far as sellers go. The first result is actually a craigslist post.

    A problem I have run into is finding a reputable affiliate for the product. There is one on commision junction but if the person searches for that stores review they might shy away. I have found what seems to be a reputable source who has their own affiliate program so maybe Ill just go through them. Are there any disadvantages to this?

    I think when you have less than 30,000 in results showing for the keyword in quptes you always have a chance to dominate the word in google. Good luck the stats look good

    I say just giver and work on the backlinks. I used to waste a lot of time with "if, should, woulda" and analyzing my stats all day long. Gradually moving towards actually getting work done now.

    You never know when a project is going to explode into a giant cash cow.
