    Hi all,

    Just wanted to share a quick tip when you're doing some Keyword Research. A lot of you may already doing this, but I realized this one recently and I'm almost sure this could benefit some of you.

    When you're looking at the Average Monthly Searches on Google Keyword Tool, always do an export of your results with 12 months of data. You'll be surprised to see some Keywords - Mainly products KW - showing something like 200 searches average but in fact last 3 months may be at 1500+ researches and first months at 0. Meaning you're keyword is gaining more and more popularity recently.

    Basically, if you just look at average monthly searches instead of looking at the details by month, you're probably missing lot of opportunities.

    If you want to quickly find them, just export as CSV in Excel, and apply filters on the first line. Then filter my biggest searches results in January 2014 and you might find some gems.
    What I like to do is create a lines diagram and see the trends of keywords very quickly.

    Hope it can help some of you finding new trending keywords..

    You can just hover your mouse over the tiny "graph" button to get a quick glimpse at its evolution.

    Ahah. Look stupid now. I guess this is not working on Opera browser...
    Anyway by doing full extract you can filter by last month searches instead of average searches which is often better.

    Yes, Monthly Search Volumes are really interesting. It is possible to refine monthly datas with Google trends tool which brings detailed informations too.

    No, you don't look stupid at all. Stupid are those who don't explore all of the resources available. The fact that you download it will let you explore it in a better manner. The tiny graph is just to save time when needing to do it ASAP.
