    I found a keyword that I have a question about. It has global search traffic of 30k, not enough data locally and about 20k competition.

    I checked google trends and it doesnt show anything for the keywords.

    Does this mean the keyword is doing good in other countries or does it mean it was doing good at one time but isnt anymore and the average hasnt fallen yet?

    Just a *hunch* from previous experience,

    Take a look at Broad, Phrase, and Exact traffic levels

    I've seen many occasions like you describe where a keyword has a high level of broad traffic, ok-ish phrase, and almost 0 exact traffic.

    Depending on what you're trying to do, some of these can be kinda ok for domains for longtail / autoblogs, but almost no traffic if you're trying to optimize for a specific word.
