Search for Local vs. Local Search

Ok...I know this could sound confusing so I'm wondering how you go about getting the # of searches that people outside an area search for vs. the number of searches for the same term inside that ip area.

Example would be everyone "outside" Denver searching for "Denver Real Estate". Then, another search is everyone "inside" Denver searching for "Real Estate". They are obviously not the same.

Does anyone know how to get these separate search numbers?

I don't live in Denver, and the numbers GKT and MNF come up with for "Denver Real Estate" exact are also totally different.

Does anyone know what's going on with the differences here?

I don't know if you can get the exact numbers searched for by IP. I use google insight to help me out and see what the trends are looking like for a search in a specific area. Just google insight.

As for why the numbers come up different I don't have an answer, but what I have done is added all three together and divided them by 3 giving me an average. Then if you take between 40 and 60% of that, it will be close to your traffic in the NUMBER 1 position.
Thanks Dirty.

What I want to know is how many people living in Denver actually searched for the term "Real Estate". Excuse my ignorance and/or naivete, but is the local number given for the search "Denver Real Estate" in MNFinder?
This is really what I'm talking about...where do these numbers come from on the people "in" Dallas. I'd love to know what tool can show me that.
