    Hey all
    I have a few questions I hope someone can settle them for me:

    1. Right now I'm using google Keyword tool to check search volume
    Using "global,exact, English" parameters - is that the way
    To go if I target global English speaking niche? can local parameter
    help me somehow or it just to target specific countries?

    2. Is google keyword tool the most accurate tool to check
    Google search volumes? (kinda stupid but I gotta ask)

    3. When I'm checking top 10 on page seo sometimes the keyword
    Which they use for the title for example differs with the keyword
    By just one letter (like singular/plural difference) does that mean
    They have on page seo for that keyword or not?

    #3 Not just singular or plural difference, if you optimize your site for say "advantages of something" google may also display your site for "benefits of something". Google is getting smarter by the day and you can also find your site ranking for exact synonyms of your keyword.

    First thing, Google Adwords keyword gives you data for paid listing (e.g competition tab denotes number of webmaster bidding for that keyword etc.)

    Adwords tool is pretty fine for a light research, but for a thorough research you have to use some advanced tool like 'Keyword Country'... Its gives you a good estimate about the profitability of the keyword.
