    Hello BHW,
    I was doing keyword research and I found a keyword with 60 exact searches and some nice monetizing perspectives. But I can`t figure out the real search volume for it, because google insights and trends shows that it has decreased critically. I know that the adwords tool results are not updated weekly but neither are the trends/insights. Maybe the keyword used to get wayy more searches and now it decreased to those 60k? Thanks for your comments.

    It's somewhat difficult to answer your question without knowing what niche you are in, but you are right to be wary of the stats G puts out...

    I recently noticed G00gle stopped showing Search volume trends(graph) in keyword tool and traffic estimator. This is huge head ache as there are possibilities for us to choose "seasonal" keywords so we end up building a site where the search volume is high only in a particular period . The only option we have now is G00gle insights and trends as you said.

    It is fine with me to be a slave at first and to stab the master google later in a back.



    I PM`ed you with my keyword.
