    It's very annoying that Long Tail Pro just shows keyword ranges. They should offer accurate data at least to Pro users.

    How do we get accurate data?

    Also when I put in keywords with review it's changing it to "reviews".

    Not even Google shows truly accurate data.

    I think Google trends will help you to get the data for keyword search in graph format.

    There isn't anywhere that is totally accurate. Amalgamating Google and Bing along with a social scrape (essp for B2C niches) will give you the best idea.

    Scrape Google
    Scrape Bing
    use a social site like hashtagify to get a third opinion.
    Take a mean average.

    The real win is experimentation. With the best data you can gather perhaps try a tiny adwords campaign. Funny how once you do that and put the Google keyword planner into a real adwords campaign the enormity of just how shit the keyword planner is can sometimes be shown.
    Bid - $1.20 in Keyword planner
    Bid that in a real campaign and be hit with "Your bid is below the first page value, Expected bid $3.86"
    The old "bait and switch" get you hooked with a low price, then once your customer is emotionally invested in the project - triple it.

    Yeah I know it was never accurate but the accuracy was better than what it is now. It used to show 10, 260, 520, 1200 etc. now it shows ranges which are impossible to work with. "1 - 10 K" is terribly inaccurate. I don't know why they've done this.

    I only want the numbers for KW research rather than for running an AdWords campaign by the way.
