    Anyone know? I know its not real time as for the past month and half I have been ranking number one for a certain keyword and getting over 5k visits per day, yet I have just checked the GKWT and it has only about 2k searches per month. It is a trending niche so they wont have much historical data to go off but the niche is at least 2 months old so I would have thought that the searches in the tool would have been alot greater.

    Any ideas?

    Hey buddy! It's because, as you said, you have a trending keyword. The monthly searches is an average of the past 12 months. You can go to Google.com/Trends and put in your KW, and see what it looks like, ie when you should get the most visitors :)

    hi mate. thanks once again for the info, however, I just wanted to see if anyone knew how often it gets updated. So say a new product comes out that people are searching for, how long would it take for google to update the search figures? a full 12 months?

    I'm not sure the exact date that it updates, but I believe its a week or 2 into the month if i remember correctly.
