Gravity is always a good thing - it can't be too high!
Yes you need to consider competition, but that's determined via a different route unrelated to anything in Clickbank. For example, you can get an idea of how tough the competition is by looking at how many people are competing on the product name and related keywords in PPC and the natural search listings. If PPC ads are dense and the sites ranking in the search listings are very high quality, then this MAY mean you have more difficulty competing for traffic.
However, this also depends on how many niches there are in the market. For instance, a product like SaleHoo has a relatively high gravity score, but there are so many niche keywords to promote that there is room for a LOT of affiliates to make money.
Check out the video “Keyword Competition: All your questions answered” in Week 1 of Affiloblueprint for more information about competition research.
All the best :)
