    There is no magic formula you can plug into market samurai that will give you a "good niche".

    A good niche will also be different from one person to another based on resources available to them and skill set.

    You don't punch in a bunch of numbers into Market Samurai and have it spit out a niche for you. That's not how you pick niches.

    Again how people pick niches is going to vary from person to person. What is a good niche for me might not be a good niche for you, and vice versa.

    For example when building affiliate sites, I won't build a site where the main keyword has less than 30,000 searches per month. However that's just my preference.

    There are many people that build smaller sites where the main keywords range in the 2400-9900 range.

    Some people write what they are passionate about, others strictly outsource the work.

    There are so many variables to consider, it is not some magic set of numbers you punch into market samurai.

    Good niche is a niche that brings in more money than you put in.. simple :)
