    I was using MarketSamurai and it said some keyword was getting 180 searches a day, and Google AdWords says 130 global searches per day. WordTracker says 1, which one should I trust? Essentially, I want to know if I should continue development with this site...I just put on WordPress the other day and there's no other content besides a quick About Me and it's ranked #12 in google for the phrase.

    I would not go for anything that has less than 3000 in G. In rare cases 1.000. This is if the keyword phrase is SUPER targeted like "fluffy armchairs uptown Nowhersville". :) :D :jerry:

    That seems very very small. Trust whichever you want, they're almost exactly the same when you consider those tracking resources usually give answers in the tens of thousands or more.

    Unless you have secret information about this keyword's explosion in the future then I dunno why you're bothering with it.

    Sorry for the late response - was on vacation. And why bother with it? What do you mean? It gets 8220 per month (180 per day for the top result)...selective reading?

    I always average out the results between wordtracker and google keywords because they always seem to differ wildly. As for me, I only choose words with a search volume in excess of 2k a month and yours fits into that category.
