I was just wondering if my thoughts are correct or wrong.

 

If I am checking a specific market, let's say for the term "dog training" - and google monthly searches gives me for instance 70k as search volume for a specific country and language. And let's say Bing gives me for the same term 30k search volume.

 

Can I simple add the numbers ?

Can I say, that I have a potential search volume of 100k for that market (country/language specific) ?

 

Or is bing/yahoo sucking the same data as google does ?

 

Wouldn't make any sense, right ?

I mean, I don't think google would get the data from bing and the other way around.

 

So I just wanted to double check what you think ?

 

Each search engine and each keyword tool represents his own search engine results, right ?

Nope!

Nope!

Nope!

 

The "keyword tools" are based on 'key' words from paid campaigns from the respective PPC systems of each one, then extrapolated, sometimes there is a close relationship between "key" word 'volume' and search traffic, .... most times there isn't.

... looking at the google keyword tool:

 

the column "monthly searches" does not represent searches from users ?

 

"monthly searches" column is not search traffic google users are typing into the freaking search box ?

Can you quote whatever you're referring to? Because as far as I can see, "Average Monthly Searches" represents the average number of searches performed within the criteria you specify.

Average monthly searches ("Avg. monthly searches"): The average number of times that people have searched for the exact keyword based on the location and Search Network targeting that you've selected. We average the number of searches for the term over a 12-month period.

 

 

Your search volume statistics are rounded. This means that when you get keyword ideas for multiple locations, the search volumes might not add up as you'd expect.

 

Averages and estimates NOT precise figures.

yes.. yes.. we are all on the same page here...  I think I misunderstood Chris with his previous post... of course the Average monthly searches are the avg. monthly searches of the average number of times that people searched for that exact keyword.
