Am using the Google Keyword Tool to find new profitable niches. However, I have a question: how do I determine exactly how many websites exist with the exact keyword title I am searching for?

I go by the coloured bar to assess competion, but what I am puzzled about is when I type in someting like "The Beatles", the bar says this phrase has NO competiton! How can this be so, when the net is SATURATED with Beatles sites? I have found this when tapping in other keyword (long tail tool) titles too.

So how can I determine exactly how many domains are competing for that title, if the competition bar in the Google Keyword Tool gives such questionable data?

I don't know that it's necessarily the # of domains competing for that title as it is pages. Regarding page count, one of the best tools for that is wordtracker.
