    I think googles keyword tool is a bunch of bs
    I am number 9 for a 480 exact search keyword, but I never get any traffic.
    whatsup with that?

    480 exact search per month....you are dealing with a wrong keyword...

    Keyword tools are never pin point correct...but its always there n there about

    That is way too low number for exact searches per month...you should aim for a keyword with 1500+ exact searches per month.

    480/30=16 views a day.

    assuming 5% click through bcoz you're number nine

    so .05*16=.8

    so 8 out of 10 people will view your site.

    It's a good estimate IMO. But nothing is going to be exact.

    Not always. The lower searches, especially long tail keywords, can mean less competition, so more chance of ranking higher on the search engines.

    What is the advantage getting 1st position with 480 monthly exact searches. you will get less than 200 visitors per month.

    Err, .8 clicks p/d or 24 clicks p/m based on that CTR. Don't know how you got 80% :p

    True, but if you have each page of your site optimized for a different long tail keyword it can add up.

    480 exact searches/month is worthy to fight for if your niche is expensive niche.

    For ex: travel package/dentist/expensive accommodation

    Get a keyword that bags more searches than that. And different keyword tools focus on different factors when they determine the rank or position of the site. No tool is perfect and no tool is certain but they do give you a good idea of the way things work. Listen to them.
