    Hey everyone, just finished reading this article...

    http://www.nichebot.com/blog/155/googles-reveals/

    All of a sudden - there is NO longer ANY confusion about how many times people are searching for a certain keyword phrase on Google.com.

    This just spotted on Google's External Keyword Tool as follows:

    Google releases the search count numbers

    Holy cow — can you see it?

    Now — rather than the old view which showed those green bar graphs under ALL THREE columns, shockingly, there are actual search count figures for specific keywords.Like say, for instance, I look above at the screenshot and I can see that 9,900 people are searching for "blogging software" in June with an ongoing average of 12,100. And interestingly, there are 135,000 people looking for a "radio blog" with an ongoing average of 110,000.

    By Google's own definition, the "Previous Month's Search Volume" column "shows the previous month's search volume on Google for each keyword, specific to your targeted country and language." The "Avg. Search Volume" column "shows the average monthly search volume on Google for each keyword over a recent 12-month period, specific to your targeted country and language. " The shaded bar to the left remains unchanged as before which shows general low-to-high volume of how competitive ad placement is for a particular keyword."

    Now this is real hard core data versus those bar graphs they used to show.


    Can someone say that there is actually some clarity on the demand of what is going on over at Google.com (half the world)??? :D

    This is right straight from the source.

    My natural curiosity right away is to go and compare figures with my search logs and other places.

    Yeah, this is what we've been waiting years for. Google must have something up their sleeve because as everybody in this forum knows...Google lies.

    Hehe, last time I read Jim Morris' post he was saying that google was showing almost 2 times the original value based on his team's research results.

    I guess he received a note from google for giving such comment, which made him edit that post and remove some informations he declared before.

    I think it was from another blog JohnCow or something that referred to some 'study' he did with comparisons to his own analytics and what google was giving back. Somehow that made it back to Jim's article/comments section.

    Looking premium wordtracker and keyword discovery results for my keywords seem pretty far off too. I have a few #1 spots for some low-mid counts that WT and KD show an average of 15,000/mo. and Google shows over 44,000...

    So that 'factor of 2' they talk about seems pretty much inline from what I got back from awstats. I don't do ppc cause it's too damn expensive to compare those #'s. I could be wrong, I'm no expert on it just going with what I see.
