    I've been doing some Keyword research came across this keyword in Adwords it says it gets 49,500 searches a month but in Micro niche finder it says it gets 390 a month. Now which one is the accurate one? Can Adwords really be off by more than 49k? if so how can they inflate their search number like that?

    The numbers shown by Adwords external keyword tool is most probably inaccurate.

    Verify using other keyword tools like wordtracker and keyworddiscovery. (the numbers are daily searches here)

    Is it possible you compared broad or phrase match VS exact match?

    I found out that most tools on the Internet are best compared with phrase match. To digg deeper, exact match is useful, but to compare those tools against each other, it seems to me phrase match is the best solution

    You were correct. I was using broad instead of phrase or exact match and it matched up perfectly with Micro niche finder. Thanks. :)
