    I go for a 3 word KW to Market Samurai, showing with the 'Golden rules' filter (which is 'broad type' default)promising figures.

    But when I put that KW in the Google Keyword Tool, 'exact' match type, the search amount is very low!

    That is very confusing, which figures should I trust?

    Thank you

    I would say trust the google keyword tool. The number they give you for the exact number of searches is not exactly right, but its the closest estimate you're going to get.

    Broad and Exact usually differ by large amounts. This is expected behaviour

    Yeah - make sure to always select exact and MS equals GKWT ;)

    What he said....

    You want to use the "exact" match to get a more accurate (as much as it can be anyway) value for the searches per month.
