    Question Newbie wordtracker question
    Hello,

    Doing a bit of keyword research with WordTracker and I must say the count and predict seems ridiculously low. Just to test I tried the keyword "credit card" which I know well.

    Count: 2,219 Predict: 3,522 for US. That is NOT correct. I'm missing something? I know the data comes from Dogpile and Metacrawler, do I need to take into account their search share?

    The reason I ask is that I need to make a decision on long tail, where should I cut it off? Any insights/thoughts are much appreciated. Where do you guys cut of long tail? 20 counts, 10, 1? (I don't want to spend too much time optimizing for keywords with no traffic.)

    Thanks!

    I prefer not to since their results are inflated by bots, crawlers etc.

    Is there anyone who actually uses WordTracker that could give me a few pointers?

    Much appreciated!
