I'm Having A Problem Understanding Googles New Keyword Planner (bloated searches)

    Prior to the keyword tool going down I went through some type of manic episode.

    For a few weeks straight, I started exporting lists of hundreds upon hundreds of
    keywords with exact match data.

    Today is the first day I've sat down to compare my lists from keyword tool to
    this new keyword planner... and MANY of the searches are different.

    I've read online that the keyword planner gives exact match data by default now.
    And there is no option to change it (which I'm fine with).

    What bothers me is why many of my local, exact match keywords from GKT,
    are MUCH LOWER than the estimates the keyword planner is giving me.

    For example -

    how to lose weight
    LEM (local exact match) in GKT was 49,500

    In keyword planner, I'm targeting the US, and by default its suppose to be giving
    exact match data, but it says 110,000 "avg monthly searches".

    A lot of keywords in keyword planner are like this, giving me much higher estimates
    than GKT use to give.

    WHAT AM I MISSING?

    I should have done more reading before I divided in to comparing searches, but I
    DID read online that by default GKP is suppose to show exact searches. Except
    like I said, the data looks bloated.

    Does anyone know why?

    Thanks,

    -SB
