    Hey, as the title explains, recently i found a 4 word keyword which i decided to go for as my micro niche site.
    These are the stats on Google AdWords:
    Approx CPC= £2.46
    Global Monthly Search = 9,900

    And the difficulty is shown as medium by traffic travis, although the number 1 site is a blogspot, dont know if that matters, and its not at all optimised for that specific keyword.
    Now, i am asking whether i have done it wrong, because while checking it out on traffic travis, TT said that there is only 320 Global Monthly Searches...
    Now, i dont know what or who to trust, and whether i should ditch this keyword, or stick by it. Any help or thoughts please!!

    You don't count with the global, you count with the exact match result.
