Can anyone please explain to me why Google Adwords keyword tool gives me completely different results when i am logged in to a google account. The result difference is enormous, and I would love to know which are the more accurate results.

I'm trying to fathom the exact same thing. Either there are 2,200 global searches for a keyword or there are not right?

I did some of my research yesterday, not logged in, and some today, logged in - and now my figures are all messed up and I have to redo it.

Anyone know the answer?

I think we need to just go back to guessing at the best keywords like we did in the old days.

I was working for months using the data, and then one day i log in to find out all of it is on incorrect!! Don't assume that when you log in the data is correct, because it is not! I was not around in the old days so this will be a new experience for me smile.gif

Two factors....

The global numbers are an average..... so trending or seasonal might be one factor..

The other factor is the fact that these are NOT exact numbers and should be used as a barometer to trending..

in other words...

If keyword A has 150 searches and keyword B has 15,500 you can safely assume that keyword B has MORE searches..

and that is pretty much it.. whistling.gif

try looking at ONLY exact match to get a more accurate forecast...
