Today I was doing some keyword research and found some really weird stuff.

That is, from many online sources French has a very big pet economy, dog, cat, others, and when compare to German pet industry, I think this in French should a big larger than in Germany's.

However, the very weird thing is when I research the keywords volume, I found the keywords search numbers in German (google.de) are much higher than in French. (google.fr)

I was like, wtf? But why? It doesn't make sense, the same keyword search number should at least similar, not like this, for example:


Dog food

in Germany: Hundefutter 27,000
in French: nourriture pour chien 1600

Also, I did some others pairs all be like this pattern, so I guess either 1) tool is wrong, but its not, I used 2 sources to make sure its not the tool's fault; 2) French people does not like to search online or they have very strong local businesses, thus no need search online lol



Looking for someone solve this myth


thanks!

I'm curious.

are you a native speaker of either language? This can be the difference between using a term that any online translator will tell you, vs. the common term searchers actually search for.

Here my example for this search, I used another translation than you for this, but still was not on point, let's see :

Now look at the keyword idea and voila, the same volume for the proper keyword that most people use...

Basically you were using "food for dog" in french, wherein german you had the correct translation that people also use for searching..

Exactly like you said, you spotted this mate! Really thanks!

Yeah I used 2 online translators and both gave me same result, no one gave me the "croquette chien" suggestion, so looks like machine translation is still far way to go lol.


Thanks for the quick tip again :)
