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 â€” can you see it? Now â€” 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)??? 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.
