Google Keyword Tool: Now Shares Specific Data

Author: Gab Goldenberg

You heard it here first folks: Google has recently updated its keyword tool to share precise volume numbers. Whereas the tool only returned relative numbers before, it now shows the precise amount of monthly search that occurred last month, as well as an average amount of monthly searches.

Google Adwords Keyword Tool Showing Precise Traffic Estimates

(Removed the keyword the tool was showing cuz that’s private.)

Here’s another one:

Youtube and related keywords with their precise search traffic volume numbers on Google's updated keyword research tool.

This comes right as the Overture tool from Yahoo has finally been put to rest, after showing data from January 07 for over a year. A smart move by Google that will not only gain it attention from SEOs, but surely the domaining world as well.

  3. Yeah, the data is not hard to come by at all. I just want it all in the same place so I can export the data for hundreds of keywords all at the same time. We are getting closer to that with this update for sure.

  5. I often search and there are 1000's of results displayed in the Approx Avg Search Volume column yet the data from the previous month is "Insufficient Data". This does not make logical senses to me as how can there be no search volume (Insufficient data) during previous months if there are 1000's on an average month. Do you know why.

  6. Fantastic example Goran. Perhaps there's a lot of seasonality to it? So for example, "summer vacations" probably aren't search for a lot in august/september, but perhaps there's lots of volume from February - July.

  7. Hi Gabriel You are absolutely right in what you are saying. But some of the words are not, seasonal. For me its as if the function is not working properly. I am however grateful that they have given us the as much data as they have. Thanks again.
