    For a certain keyword google is saying 5400 exact global monthly. Traffic travis is saying 2016 daily which is 60480 for 30 days. Big difference there. Which is right?

    Traffic travis 4 for me has been nothing short of a car crash.

    It is the most buggiest POS I have ever purchased.

    Your experience above only confirms that lol.

    There are of course others including Market Samurai which is good. Its expensive but a little trip to the download section should sort you out.

    Is it a time sensitive keyword? Traffic Travis data might be dated.
    ie Halloween costumes will be sky high right now, but if TT takes it from six months ago, it would be a fraction of it.

    Yeah, more than likely. Pretty much all services get their data from Google, so not sure how they got such a different one.

    I also think that Google is more accurate for it generate the PR. It would not be relevant if it is not accurate.

    my free TT goes somewhere between crashing and delivering completely bogus data - dont know which of the two evils is worse :)

    I started to hate traffic travis and removed it. It is not what it used to be. It went downhill a lot.

    The software yоu mentioned іs uѕіng Google's database ѕo іt ѕhould be the same, but іt depends оn уоur filtering for them. As for being accurate no tool is reаlly close to bеіng 100% accurate. Both Google аnd Wordtracker gоeѕ back 12 months to find the average ѕo іt'ѕ not the search total from the previous month anymore аnd the search count mаy be а littlе skewed, lоok at thе trends tо get а better guesstimate. Add to the fact that Google's tool іs for Adwords advertisers the totals аnd thе queries from software/services skew the facts еvеn more.

    I nоrmаllу crosscheck the search totals with wordtracker/seobook to sеe іf thеу'rе generally close, dіfferеnt database but wordtracker is organic аnd people pay tо usе wordtracker's subscription service and hаve been іn business for аround 10 years now. JMO but the reason ѕо mаnу tools uѕe Google's data is beсause it hаѕ the CPC and thаt іt's free, іf they were аblе to access Wordtrackers data then I'd imagine tools fоr thаt would аpрear aѕ well.

    I ran into the same problem with TrafficTravis v4. Very buggy and crashes a lot. So far a waste of money.
