    When searching for a niche keyword, how many global or local monthly searches is your minimum?

    At what point is a niche too small to bother with writing a hub for it?

    I look for +10K in monthly searches and seems to be working for me smile

    That is  a really good question, and since you write about your dogs a lot it is really important. Dog articles are not searched as much as some, and I do not think there is anything wrong with choosing a keyword that only has a few thousand.
    The "strong dog names" article you published a few weeks ago will only be searched about 2400 times per month, but if you get half of them, wouldn´t that be okay? I have a dog article that is searched about 5500 times per month, and I get 5000 page views per month for that hub (not all from Google, I am sure). Som of my dog name hubs get 500 per month, so nothing flashy, but even that is okay.
    I actually wrote one recently for a keyword that only has a few hundred per month. (Five Dog Breeds From Latin America). I was just in the mood to write about dogs from my area. Every once in a while I think it is fine to ignore the keyword number!

      Funny that you mentioned the "Strong Dog Name " Article. Title tuner suggested I change it to "Cool Dog Names," so I did that.  I am interested to see what impact it will have on the article.

      The title tuner is okay after an article has been published about six months, and has been searched for a lot. After a week or two? You should ask others w a lot of experience, but I think it is worthless.

    For a minimum I use 1300. I also look at EXACT phrasing search numbers. I will use 500 for EXACT phrases as my minimum. I use Hub Groups for many articles so even if an article is a dud traffic-wise, it still may attract users to more popular articles.

      Interesting - Thanks - what kind of traffic do you generate with 13oo google searches?
