Is 1200 monthly keyword searches decent for a niche site?

    1000+ searches is commonly considered the magic number for a niche site as long as it provides enough topics to create a few articles

    EDIT: That means 1000+ US exact searches. Also consider CPC ~$1.00 is good

    If you can make the SEO + Domain + Hosting Cost back within a month or two through that site, then you sure can continue.

    Not too much competition and a 1200+ monthly search kw sounds great to me.

    That's a lot of volume you can monetize with.

    Well assuming you get to #1 (and that's a big if) you can expect a whopping 15-20 hits a day!

    So I'm going to have to disagree with everyone who said yes it's good, because no it's not.
