    K I'm a big newb when it comes to the interwebz.

    I was looking for some keywords using the google adwords KW tool,
    and noticed a :eek:fucked:eek: up decrease in search volumes.


    Like for example this passing february
    The global search volume for the KW money is 1,500,000
    The avg search volume is 37,000,000!??

    I did the same for likely entered KWs
    I typed in buy clothes and got 3,700
    Avg search volume is 301,000

    So did like 50,000,000 people just stop using the internet or stop using google>?>>>??

    Sumbody explains to meh please, thanks

    I've been doing KW research the past couple days and have noticed the same thing. February results that are consistently a fraction of average results. No clue what's happening, but it's definitely freaking me out. I'm not sure whether to believe it or not!

    I've came up with a list of possible scenarios:

    1-Error in search term metrics (unlikely google is the shit)
    2-Due to the global economic meltdown and mass layoffs people are taking
    less interest in online shopping
    3-Google is part of a global conspiracy to further advance the world into an economic meltdown (lololol)
