    I have a long tail keyword domain. According to googles adwords keyword tool this domain gets 200,000 monthly searches when the Match Type is set to "Broad". If I select [Exact] instead of Broad the global monthly searches changes to 110. My guess is that the difference comes because of the order of the words (its a 3 word keyword phrase, and my domain doesnt follow logical order). For instance it would be the difference between BlackHatWorld and WorldBlackHat. If i SEO the hell out of it can i expect to be competing for the 200,000 global monthly searches or will I only be competing for the 110?

    Thanks in advance

    Go for exact. It's the most accurate among the three in terms of estimating how much traffic you will get. Of course, it still depends on your ranking.

    BTW, 110 exact is too low to go for.

    Exact and LOCAL. Yes, it's the smallest number but boy will you be disappointed when you don't get 200,000 searches showing up after getting it ranked.

    So I guess what you guys are saying is to scratch this domain and look for a better Exact match one.

    Thanks for the input.
