    You start typing something into the Google search bar and it gives you those dropdown suggestions. That means people search for those terms.

    But when I search for those same terms in Google AdWords Keyword Tool, some of them say 0 searches per month (worldwide).

    Why?

    If enough people are searching for them that they have been added to Google's dropdown box, why is the Adwords tool saying 0 searches per month?

    That doesn't make any sense.

    did you sort to broad exact or phrase match? that can have a big effect on how many searches are shown.

    Exact.

    "Broad match" had a bunch of unrelated examples so I turned it off.

    My point is, Google's dropdown suggestion box is filled because a lot of people search for the item in question. Therefore I would expect to see some number of searches listed for that same keyword in Google Adwords tool.
