    Hello guys I want to ask you people, What should be the average monthly searches period in Google keyword planner. What I mean by that is usually Google itself suggests it 12 months and we can also reduce it to one month or more, which one is better. see it.PNG
    Because both are giving almost same results for my keyword. For one keyword there is a average monthly search is 18100 and yearly is 12400 what to do now?? On what basis finalize which keyword to be used? Thanx in advance :)

    Its all depend on which keyword you choose.
    Choose the monthly searches and compare the keywords monthly searches count to every month before the current month. Because sometimes the keywords searches will increase month by month. Some keywords searches decrease month by month. So average searches may be same. So choose the keyword with compare monthly basis also.

    Normally, for old and established niches and keywords, the 12 month average does a good job, but for up and coming niches and keywords, you should be relying upon the three month period.
