    I use the google adwords tool

    hxxps://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal?defaultView=2

    to find niches
    some niches have very low monthly search like 1-2000 searches per month
    some have 6-7000 and then you have the really competative words
    that have a million search per month

    what is a good number to look for when it comes to niches
    if a niche has 6-7000 search per month
    is that enough to really go after that keyword or do you need
    like
    10-20,000 search per month to really work hard at getting that keyword..

    6-7000 search per month is good but I would not just stop there. Also look for multiple but relevant keywords with searches of 3-500 per month. Some say that is to small but think if you had 10 relevant keywords rather niches or subniches that have 3-500 each with a combined potential traffic value of 3000 to 5000 monthly searches (300 x 10=3000). That way you want just look for one keyword with high monthly searches but multiple but relevant keywords with moderate monthly searches which can give you potential variety of traffic from multiple phrases holding the same leverage as one monthly high searched term or keyword.

    Another suggestion is don't just look at those big volume words, common words do not mean high converting words, you can set up a small budget ppc campaign to test high converting words, anyway to find a good word is really a hard process.

    Also keep in mind that even in the optimal situation where you have picked a niche term that gets you to a first page #1 position on the search engines, the average click through on the first position is about 20%. If the monthly search volume for the keyword is 3000, that means only about 600 who get to the page 1 SE results will visit your site. To improve your sales monetization, you should look for niche keywords in the 15,000 monthly search volume range or above.
