You're right! There are more factors that determine how good a niche and/or is. For example you might think 1,000,000 searches per month for a keyword is too tough. BUT if none of the sites are targeting the keyword you could have a chance of beating them in the search engine rankings!
We are developing a tool to help you determine whether a market is good or not. Whilst it isn't entirely complete, there is one part in particular that will help with what you're trying to do.
The tool is call Market Strength and you can find it herehttp://www.affilorama.com/market-research-tools/market-strength
Keep an eye out for when it's completed. Until then, just use your best judgment in weighing up search count, and your potential to target the keyword.
