    I have been at #1 for Top Restaurant NYC (100,000 searches/month) for a week now and have only amounted about 200 hits. A programmer for India I know says there is a backend error that is causing my stats to be lacking.

    1) Is that possible?
    2) I have only recieved 2 hits on my adsense in the 2 days I added it to my site, how is that possible

    Dude.. your keyword only receives 58 searches a month. Look at exact match when doing keyword research.

    It says 110,000 searches per month.

    If that isnt accurate where should I look for accurate keyword searches/month?

    although google keyword tool is easy, you need to learn how exactly it works.
    I also bought some useless domains before because of google keyword tool's broad search results.

    That happens! See, you are acting at least. You are not just reading and not doing anything.

    Just do some research before you invest and you are fine!
