    I used google keyword tool before but it was replaced with keyword planner, and i'm confused with the results:

    I have used the same keyword, but i get different result:

    Google keyword tool 'exact match'result says 2k ms. but serpbook says 100k ms.

    So guys how do you find the monthly searches of a certain keyword?

    I stay away from the new Planner and just use Traffic Travis' free version to look up the information. Just make sure to change the settings from broad to exact and it's a lot better than the Planner.

    How can you trust a 3rd party program instead of google that connects to google anyway?

    Just use the keyword planner.
    The reason you are confused is because the results now are "Exact" by default.

    I always use the Google Adwords tool. But any tool will always give you a different result if you compare. I have Traffic Travis and always get different results from each.

    I don't think it is exact by default, it is still "broad match"...If you want exact you need to put your terms in [square brackets.] But I agree, who knows the workings of Google Search better than Google themselves.

    Really confusing. I believe third party programs connects to ggogle to get results but why they are showing different results?

    Also im getting confused with the answers as well :)
