Frustrated about finding nicheHi. ive been searching for awhile now trying to find a niche. I type keyword phrases into travis travis and google keyword tool. about how many searches a month does a keyword phrase need to have to be a "good" keyword phrase. Also do the other 25-30 keyword phrases need to have the same amount of searches too? Also a question about competition. If a keyword has 246,000 global monthly searches with low competion what does this mean? does this mean im going to rank well for this keyword? dont make sense to me. What about a keyword that has 480 global monthly searches with medium competition? Or a keyword with 9,900 searches with high competition? How well would it be to rank for this keywords? Thanks. I appreciate the help and any advice so much!

No, they don't need to have the same search volumes. For 20 articles, you need a total search count of 5,000 for all your keywords combined. It's fine if some keywords are only 500 searches a month, or 1,000 searches a month. As long as when the 20 keywords you choose are added together the combined search count is over 5,000.
it really depends on the niche. I usually look for a main keyword for my site with 50,000 global monthly searches, then for the article pages I usually look for 500-1000 monthly searches. Sometimes I go for less, but that range is usually pretty easy to rank for, although there are more factors to look at.
use the keyword analysis tool in Traffic Travis to look at the SEO competition for your keywords. I look for keywords with little on page seo factors and less than 100 backlinks to the page.
