    hi everyone,
    i was trying to find some good niche using Google keyword tracker and noticed something silly. "car of the year 2008" i found that a keyword "2009 cars" was getting 110,000 monthly searches.

    I don't understand one thing , will people be Still search for 2 year old keyword? or has google not updated it's database? this doesn't make sense!

    i have attached the image as a rar file. i am unable to attach the image directly.

    can some one enlighten me??

    i actually just got done searching for car of the year 2008 lol, akward. anyway, its not the database, its that people like me want to know. because i don't want a 2010 because there is still unknown problems with them... like the xbox, no one seen the RROD coming until it came.. and most of the other problems..2 years later, there are fixes to it. so i don't have to worry about why my car is doing blah blah blah, and not knowing how to fix it because people have perfected it and know how to now

    Is this an exact keyword match? Or Broad?

    The volume that you mentioned is based on broad match which is never the right criteria for estimating search volume. One should always use Exact match keywords.
    On checking with exact match, the count went down to 2900 which is understandable. The screenshot is attached for your reference.

    oh is it? actually i learn from an IM marketer that it was better to use the match criteria as broad as that is how people search..

    I think i have to go and kick him.. his name is brian johnson

    Here is the deal: if the keyword is broad then it means that people are searching for terms that contain the keyword "2009 cars".

    So, the 110,000 figure will be for all searches that contain that term, which could consist of literally hundreds of phrases. So yes, its quite possible that its getting that kind of volume.

    As someone has said above, the exact term gets 2,900 EXACT searches, which is a lot more accurate. (Less than 100 a day).

    Of course people are searching for this term, what good is it if Google starts giving out search volume recorded 2 years ago? The Global search volume is the average of that keyword search volume recorded in the past 12 months in all countries, whereas the local search volume is what was recorded for last completed month(which is August 2010 in this case), but only from the country selected by you.

    Instead of posting here, research a little bit about how Google Keyword tool works and you will find all answers to your questions yourself.

    Hope that helps.

    I know that there is a big rumor out there about keyword analysis especially when it comes to numbers (search couns). As far as I know we should use EXACT and LOCAL parameters. Now let's examine 4 tools:

    1. Old Adwords Keyword Tool
    2. New Adwords Keyword Tool
    3. SKTOOL
    4. Semrush

    1. Old Adwords Keyword Tool:try to give up this tool over time. Giving very wrong numbers sometimes (not always ubt can make your project a disaster).

    2. NEW Adwords Keyword Tool: USE this one as much as you can. It is getting better and better everyday. A few month later this will be the official keyword tools. Numbers are more realistic. And it is more detailed.

    Links:

    http://www.malcolmcoles.co.uk/blog/why-you-shouldnt-use-googles-keyword-tool-for-seo/

    3. SKTOOL: Just use as a supportive argument. But do not take it into account seriously. Sometimes gives search counts as 40-500 which should be no less than 5.000-10.000.

    4. SEMRUSH: Open as many accounts as you can. It derives data from Google Adword Tool (Old). But it gives lots of information about competion and its numbers seem more realistic.

    These are really enough if you utilize them in an effective way.

    LATEST REMARK : Do not forget TRENDS.
