    Wordtracker and the google keyword tool never agree. Then theres also the traffic estimator from google but should that be used with quotations? Im going to try and get to the top for a keyword with a lot of competition, but I want to know if the traffic will be worth it...

    I bought on one my computers and can't use it on another so I have to use the trial a lot of the time. The trial is still good the keyword tool is all I need.

    The google keyword tool doesnt offer the stats for the ammount of traffic you would get if you were in the 1st place for a search term. It just shows the number of searches monthly.

    And even those results are questionable. The only way i know to get accurate search numbers for a search term/phrase is by running a adwords campaign on them but even that wont show you the hits you would get for a #1 position.

    Lol ? =P It depends on lots of thing IMO, You can determinate how much you will get from being nro 1 with anything. Check some i think the 1st result gets like 50% clicks ? or was it 70% ? anyway .. Other thins i would think about would be : Your title, description, url, and same goes for competition url title url , maybe youtube video ? some web 2.0 shit or so ...

    A lot of people tend to forget that the title and description should be seen as your ad. But hey - better for me ;-)

    Well, the best way to find out is to get there, eh? :)

    What seo20 said is right, many people forget/neglect to add meaningful or attention grabbing descriptions which makes them lose out on tons of traffic. Like he said, it's better for the rest of us!
