    Google adwords approx search volume errors
    Hi

    I made a post in the ppc forum but I dont think it fits there. I was trying to use adwords keyword tool for keyword research but have seen what must be huge discrepancies in the approx search volume results.

    Is this typical? Is the adwords keyword tool useless? I wasn´t using it for an adword campaign justkeyword research.

    It was only that some of the results were so far off what could be real that I noticed something must be wrong. I guess there are other results on approx volume that are also wrong but not so obvious.

    I guess this is obvious to most of you? or there is a work around? What do I use instead?

    >>>Is this typical?

    Been that way for years.
    You just have to test for yourself.

    What is the test then? Do you mean trial and error? Is there really no accurate way? I used to think Wordtracker was supposed to be good, but on this forum as well I read that it isn´t accurate either!!!

    Is the answer one of those trade secrets?
