    Hi,
    I bought a keyword domain a few days back... at that time, according to the adword keyword tool, the keyword had slightly more than 3,00,000 searches.
    But today when I checked google trends for the same keyword, It says that:

    Your terms -- MY KEYWORD -- do not have enough search volume to show graphs.


    NOW WHICH ONE IS CORRECT?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just checked... The searches in adword tool have decreased to 2,40,000 (local).. But does it really matter?

    In the Adwords keyword tool you want to set the match type to exact to get the true search numbers - I'm guessing you left it on broad.

    You need to change the little drop down box that says "Broad" (bottom right of your first picture) change that so it says "Exact". Sorry if I'm not clear.
