Does Google Adword provide authentic data?

Does Google Adword provide authentic data?

I have seen many people using Google Adwords as a source for finalizing their keywords. I know it’s a great tool but have you ever thought of whether this tool provides you with authentic data?

Most people will say Yes as this is Google. But I tend to think in a different way. I actually tested it out and found Google to fail this test.

Here goes the Case Study:

I have a domain www.domain.com and wanted it to rank for the keyword iPhone Developer. I went through my normal course of auditing for the best possible related keywords. Here is what Google suggested (actual data not provided)

Now, the funny incident is eventually, I registered many hits for the keyword iPhone Developer both from Organic SEO and also from Google Adwords Campaign.

Here is what Google suggested (actual data not provided)

Keywords

Feb Search Data

Avg Monthly Search

iphone developer

26100

33500

For Next Month

Keywords

March Search Data

Avg Monthly Search

iphone developer

No Data

27100


So, possibly there can be on true result.

  1. If Google Adwords Campaign is true i.e. No of hits for my website then Google Adwords Keyword Tool is wrong.

  2. If I registered false hits(click fraud) then Google Analytics is wrong.

  3. I checked report from the Adwords which showed conversion from the keyword and then similar kind of result from Google Analytics

So guys, what do you feel now? Do you want to try a similar stuff or have any suggestion for me.

Really useful information about SEO

Hi,
Looking forward to meet you after long! read http://www.techfeedr.com/blog/2009/07/kolkata-blogger-meet-2009/.. see your name hehe

I wish I could see the whole set with the right domain names ... None of the keyword suggest tool is expected to give you an exact number expect Google as most of the others are simulating whereas Google can show the exact count on the searches which is a significant share ..

Now I have queries
1) Was the search exact, broad or phrase ...
2) Language & country
3) Why are you saying it is wrong? Average monthly search is about "Global Monthly Search Volume
This column shows the approximate average monthly number of search queries matching each keyword result. This statistic applies to searches performed on Google and the search network over a recent 12-month period. It includes traffic in all countries and languages and is specific to your selection from the Match Type drop-down menu. If we don't have sufficient data for a particular keyword, you'll see not enough data. " and which is very difficult to sum up..

Regards,
Aji
