    So I have a phrase that consists of three words, but they all connect to each other (like Mail-Box, Basket-Ball, etc). In any case, on top of that, the first first is a geographical location..

    So with that being said...

    When I search it on Google, I get 1,200,000+ results
    When I search it on Google with "", I get 136,000+ results
    When I get into Google Keywords and search it up with [exact] matches, I get 390-global, and 320-local

    Question 1) Can I rank first on google for that?
    Question 2) Do those statistics mean that there is TONS of competition, and very little searches? (Almost as if it was "Buy Private Jet Plane")

    Doesn't really look like that much competition. 136,000 in quotes is nothing crazy. Is the top spot wikipedia/amazon or similar? Yes, you can rank first for anything with enough time and effort.

    Well that exact match count makes it look low traffic. Best way to see how competitive it is going to be is to look at the top 10 without quotes and think to yourself, "Can I beat those sites?"

    Any three word keyphrase is going to have a ton of sites showing for a broad search, especially if it contains a major geographical term. However I wouldn't say that 1.2M generic or 136K quote searches is super competitive.
