    Hi guys,

    Re the thread that was started last week about MNF. The last two searches I have performed on this tool are worrying the hell out of me.

    I performed yet another search today and got some wild discrepancies between MNF and Googles adword tool. MNF kicked out a result of 1300 searches for my keyword request and Google 4900 but they both came back with identical exact phrase counts of 14900.

    I think MNF is going to become one of those programmes that ends up being hidden away in a folder somewhere on my computer never to be used
    again, as I don´t feel it´s results can´t be trusted anymore. It´s a real shame, as this was once a really cool tool.

    I think you are probably comparing apples to oranges. My copy of Micro Niche Finder defaults to Exact Search counts BUT you can select Broad or Phrase search counts if you want. Google External Tool defaults to Broad search counts.

    MNF works perfectly fine for me. You're probably comparing exact search to broad search, as LittleTrooper has mentioned.

    There's nothing wrong with MNF, still a great tool. In fact it was only recently updated again, which is sweet given that it was released a few years ago.

    Are you looking in the same place?

    If you're searching in the UK, make sure MNF is using uk google search AND amke sure keyword tool is using uk search.

    The google adwords tool is not that accurate. I have MNF, Market Samuri and still check with wordtracker and the seokeyword tool They all come up with different numbers. But ususally google's adwords tool shows a higher count than any of the others. I useually cut what the adwords tool gives me in half as far as searches go.
