Adwords Keyword Tool Estimates Are Completely "Bullshit". Google Being Fake?

Google is seriously trolling people here.. Hard competition, 6,600 Global searches, 2,400 local searches, and I’m ranked #1 for keyword keyword and keywordkeyword, etc every variation.. Have a compelling title/description, etc.. Checked it with multiple SERP checkers, from multiple locations, browsers, etc and in fact #1.

Guess how many people have came from that keyword being search: 0.

What gives? They can’t seriously be honest here, they have the technology for real data, for it to be off this much is them just lying to the public flat out..

They claim they are "transparent" that’s not being transparent at all..

I think their shit is made up too. We are paying for this shit at work and nothing makes sense. Does not help me properly market our brands online.

Same, run it at work too.. Test budget $1000 @ $3/click, beat every other advertiser, super high quality score, normal CTR, position around 1.2, select a bunch of keywords too.. Run it for a month, get 10,000 impressions/searches, the tool says there should be 600,000 searches per month, lol. What a joke, how am I even supposed to choose keywords if the traffic estimates are entirely wrong by a huge amount.

I was spending upwards to $10,000 a month on a campaign with a very competitive keyword. Ended up losing my ass after two months.

Stopped using it entirely.

Put $5K into my organic rankings, top 4 placement for 3 extremely competitive KW’s, and seeing just as much traffic, with the same results as I did with Adwords on.

Just to be sure, you are hitting the "exact match" check box over on the left right? Because that is the one that really matters to get an idea of the keyword search numbers?

Also, if you are ranked #1 you should see at least some traffic, even if just by accident lol. You sure you are not seeing personalized SERP?

I was gonna say this, too.

A few years ago before I knew about "exact match" I made a site and ranked it in the top 5 for my keyword which had a few thousand searches per month. But I was getting like 2 visitors per day. Then I learned about exact match searches and saw that with exact match, my keyword got like 15 searches per month. Oops.

, how did I miss that! Went from 6,000 down to 12.

ouch lol. Well welcome back to the real world where all the good traffic domains are taken by those damn squaters

sheeeeeeeeeeeeit.

you do realize that the number of searches isn’t total actual searches, it’s searches in which the string of words are used in which ads are displayed on average, and here’s the key, IN ANY PLACE GOOGLE DELIVERS ADS BASED ON A KEYWORD

In other words, 6,000 exact match local searches for a keyword doesn’t mean 6,000 searches were performed on Google that month. It means ads for that search term were displayed on Google’s network 6,000 times in a month.

Also, if I search for "how to perform proper anal techniques" twice in one month, it counts the search and not the user, in other words, it counts my search twice
