After years of using the Google Keyword tool and trying to interpret what those stupid green bars meant, Google has finally come around and is showing real numbers in the search volume estimator. Hallelujah! Check it out:
First I would like to point out that this feature was a long time coming. With all the data Google has, all the users of their AdWords platform and all the money being spent, this seems like it should have been available (at least for AdWords customer) for a long time. However, I am elated to finally be able to have an idea of how many impressions I might get. This will allow me to put together much more accurate budgets for ad spend in the future.
