    I've been making personal spreadsheets of keywords and the level of competition of each one. I have 5 columns

    1) How many exact results in Google - "keyword"
    2) How many results in the URL - inurl:"keyword"
    3) How many results in the Title - intitle:"keyword"
    4) How many results in both the URL and the Title - inurl:"keyword" intitle:"keyword"
    5) How many results pages

    Which of these do you think is the most important in determining the level of competition? Which is the least?

    You missed the "no of backlinks" , thats the first thing i look for when checking competition.

    I mostly check top 5 ranking sites stats.

    Quick way: Add quotation marks around your phrase. If there are less than 100k results, competition is generally quite easy. Works for me at least.
