What is a Good Keyword Search Volume?

It depends on your industry or business niche, target demographic, and the keywords you are targeting. However, the general rule of thumb is that you want to target keywords with high search volumes (at least 500 - 1,000+ searches per month).

But, the keyword difficulty [competition] that is related to it has an impact on the likelihood of ranking.

If you are a beginner or have a new website, the general rule of thumb is that you want to target keywords with search volumes (at least 70 - 100+ searches per month) with low keyword difficulty that establishes your site's basic SEO environment slowly and gradually.

The more competitive the market will be, and the more difficult it will be to rank highly in search results. Additionally, you want to ensure that these keywords are relevant to your business and offer value to your potential customers through your business content.

Keyword difficulty - understanding the scores

You can use Google's Keyword Planner free tool to get a rough idea of how many people are searching for a particular keyword, and how much competition you'll face for that keyword.

Simply enter your search term and the country/region you want to target, and Google will show you the estimated search traffic, average cost per click, and competition level.

Keep in mind that these are only estimates - Google doesn't guarantee that you'll actually rank highly for a specific keyword.

To get a better understanding and more insights on the volume of searches for specific keywords, you can, however, use paid SEO tools.

By using such tools, once you have figured out your good keyword search volume, you can then develop high-quality and relevant content that will help you rank higher in search results. Consistent efforts are a must.

Overall, a good keyword search volume varies by business niche, and as you start with the above thumb rule figure while keeping keyword difficulty in mind, with consistent efforts, you will have a clear idea of how your website ranks over time and accordingly you will arrive at an almost specific figure that meets your needs.
