Search volume and pages

Hi Guys

When undertaking KR you have monthly search volume against pages.

I am assuming SV is the monthly search for that keyword or keyphrase
Whereas pages are the number of pages that keyword/phrase appears on
Correct?

Now we all look for high search volume low page numbers which is virtually impossible albeit in the most obscure of niches and if you want any kind of organic traffic.

My question is what is considered an acceptable SV/Page ratio?
ie... Monthly SV 50 and something like 750,000 pages or Monthly SV 2000 with say 20,000,000 pages. Is there some formula we can apply or look out for when undertaking KW research?

Regards
Costa

    There is no such thing as a SV/Page ratio and there never has been. The number of search results for any given phrase is completely irrelevant and has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not you can rank on page one. The only thing that matters is the strength of the top 10 results. If you start worrying about whether or not you can beat result #30 or #100 or #1,000, you've already lost.

    There is no such thing as Search Volume to page ratio. We just see the metrics and decide which kw will best for targeting.

    Hi,
    There is no such thing as an SV/Page ratio. A simple formula for better ranking is to choose high search volume keywords which have low competition. And target those keywords on the best relevant pages of your website; after that do promote those pages on high traffic websites. This is more enough to improve your website ranking.
