    Lads,

    How accurate is the AWCPC module in MS?
    I researched a KW in MS and it gave me AWCPC of ?3.60 BUT when I checked it in Google KW tool it gave me a CPC of .80c!! :eek:

    Anybody shed some light on this?

    Thanks!

    Personally, or stupidly.... I ignore the CPC and SEOV on MS. All I look at is SEOT, SEOC and PBR. this makes sure i'll rank for a high search volume keyword :)

    Yeah a few people have said the same..

    It was a crap lesson for me tho, found a KW that according to MS got 3600 EMS and a CPC of ?3.60, so after a lot of hard work I got ranked no. 1 in Google for my main KW and only to get an average CPC of about .50c :eek:
    Averaging about ?2-?2.50c a day (altho I made ?0 yesterday!!) . You live and learn I suppose!!

    What do you have your "Match Type" set to? Is it on "Broad", "Phrase" or "Exact" as this will return different results, though I am sure you know this already.
