Accuracy?

    Hey Shawn, hate to bug you.

    The results that the keyword tracker returns do not seem to be accurate.

    For example, for my top keyword at the moment on my political site which is "negative campaigns" your tracker is showing me at 18.

    However when I do a google search I am at either #2 or #1(depends on which region you are in, i'll be #1 next full update)
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&safe=off&c2coff=1&q=negative+campaigns&btnG=Search

    Other ones that are off a little:
    Positive campaign: Keywordtracker: 7; Google: 6
    Effective Politics: Keyword tracker: 20; Google 23

    Just wondering why it is returning such a difference on those terms.
    SEMrush
    Anyway, nice forums Shawn, sorry I havn't made it over here before in the past.

    For the 1st one, check #24 in the FAQ.

    For the others it looks like data center flux (I see positive campaign at #7 when I search Google manually.

    hmm, ok. I couldn't get the negative campaigns to show up right still. I just deleted the term and put it in again. I guess I reached my limit though for searches today, so we will see if maybe that worked tomorrow.

    Thanks for the quick response Shawn

    If you are out of queries for the day, the link within the FAQ would not be able to correct it...
