    I'm afraid that google suggestion tool is showing an incorrect number of monthly searches (US exact searches) for a keyword

    Can i use adwords to find how many real searches is getting that keyword ?

    For example i would leave (just for few days) an ad. to see how much impressions it can get,
    is this a good idea ? what do you think ?

    not really
    how would you calculate real number of searches then??

    some ads get clicked in 2%, some 10% cases, you just cant believe results you get

    Hello, At this situation you should use Google adwords. According to my practical experience, it is a very good keyword researching tool.

    SEMrush uses google adwords tool in backend. Appart from google tool there is nothing left in the market to know the exact search volume of a keyword.

    What about Market Samurai?

    I was thinking about buying MS this weekend. Is there anything other than Google Keywords tool that you folks would recommend?

    I've tested MS, traffic travis, and the google keyword tool on the same keywords. All have different answers. Your best bet is to either A) use all three and get the average, or B) trust google as the reasonably reliable source.

    Remember, those numbers are rounded off, sometimes there are weeks when that keyword isn't searched as much. Its just the way humanity works.

    MS uses the Google keyword tool and traffic estimator.

    Well also be signed In when using google adwords while using it.Some says that this will help in getting much more accurate results.I think thats true.Also can use MS as it is somewhat accurate.

    well, the numbers may not be exact but they are pretty close. so i think you shouldn't worry if results are showing 500-1000 plus or less searches than real searches. worry about how long and hard could take to bring it to #1.

    I'm a newbie so correct me if i'm wrong :)

    Market Samurai seems to be the highest rated keyword tool here but gets a lot of it's stats from G anyway. So if we can't rely on G.....
