    I checked google for a certain keyword and I get 6,600 global monthly searches. I then check same word on Keyword Spy and I get a result of only 1,600.

    Can someone explain why this is? Who's is better? Thanks:D

    Look at the left side of the google keyword tool. You probably didn't change the match type, which is set to "broad" by default. You should uncheck it and check "[Exact]"

    I have searched google and put my keyword in quatations. I came in at About 81,200 results. When i put intitle: "keyword" i get About 45,000 results. When i put inurl: "keyword" I get About 6,120 results.

    Would this be a good keyword based on those results. How long to get on page 1?
