    Google uses it's own tracker, where as wordtracker incorporates dogpile[dot]com and other crawlers.

    My personal choice is Adwords...as we can rely more on google then anyone when it comes to see the daily search as it has the largest market share!!

    Adwords is the better tool in this case as Google covered more samples in searches. I can't be sure but I did recall reading some where that WordTracker free version only covers AltaVista for their search data - which means a lot less samples of searches are filed.

    In case you need more data to verify your judgment, I would recommend you to try Google Insights, DigitalPoint K/W suggestion tool, Keyword Discovery, as well as my new favourite: Compete.

    IMHO, one can use both these tools.
    But you might get confused because of difference in search volume for both this.
    Still i would like to go for Google Adwords as it's Google owned and i do have more trust on G Adwords rather than wordtracker.

    sometimes i felt Google adwords is showing high search volume let's say about 10 K / Mo. but infact my site is on the top of SERP's it was not getting as much as visits it shows. I believe to choose keywords what i feel people might use for searching their needs and that;s given me lot success.

    Let me go back to Annic's post on wordtracker. Thanks Anne. Word tracker is an industry standard. A few years ago, I had a marketing consultant help me with some keyword selection. He used word tracker and it's whole methology. I was using the old overture word back then to get relative volumes by keywords and they often were producing different numbers than word tracker.

    I quizzed him on where word tracker was getting it's data. Anne finally answered it for me and, much as I hate to not say nice things about a company when they actually reach out on forums and provide useful info, the info does raise some questions for me.

    Word tracker gets its data from from dogpile and metacrawler which accounts for .63% of the searches. But, are their searches typical of mainstream users?

    I mean like what sort of person in 2008 uses dogpile? If you met someone who used dogpile to search with, what sort of person do you think it would be? Would it be someone like Joe Sixpack? Or someone really weird and fringy...Maybe from Hawaii or Alaska...(sorry, i'm thinking politics and trying to be even handed)

    You wont get accurate information from any keyword tool. Its best to use them to see relative difference between keywords like "red shoes" has less searches than "shoes".

    Google Adwords is not showing proper search volume these days.
    I agree with KNM77, if you are planning for Adwords campaign than choose only Google adwords.
    Try Digital Points Keyword Selector Tool.

    I think google adwords is more accurate . Ever since google is leading engine with the biggest search volume, i count on their numbers.
