I have used keyword suggestion tool to analyze the competition of one specific keyword,

In Google Adwords Keyword Tool, It showed the Monthly search of around 3,68,000

In Seobook Keyword Tool - It showed the Monthly search for Google as 61,380.

Which data I should take it as the correct value to do my keyword research.

Please suggest any accurate tool to do keyword research.

I wonder myself which one has the real, true accutate data.

What I've learned is to first understand the data that each of these are giving you and how those numbers are derived.

In the end it comes down to using a combination of tools and making an educated decision.

BTW - We use wordtracker as another tool.

I dont think there is any keyword research tool that is 100% accurate. They can give you a good idea if a phrase is being searched for though.

I'm using Wordtracker's GTrends. It's not that accurate, but it's ok to drive you into the right direction :)

well man...just use your brain for keyword research. there is no tool that is reliable for your work.Google ad words is for paid campaign keyword research and we just get a rough idea about keywords and remaining other tools i don't have much idea about them.

For a discussion comparing keyword tools themselves, there's a current discussion that's worth looking at.... [webmasterworld.com...]

In Google Adwords Keyword Tool, It showed the Monthly search of around 3,68,000

In Seobook Keyword Tool - It showed the Monthly search for Google as 61,380.

What were your settings on the Google Tool? Either broad match (rather than exact match) or global monthly volume (worldwide) rather than local monthly volume (ie, within country) could account for the difference.

Not sure where the Seobook Tool gets its data. It may be from Wordtracker, which extrapolates data and tries to project monthly volumes from a small initial sample size. IMO, Google is currently giving the best data.

Google have the biggest data set, but it's geared towards advertisers, and includes things like ad impressions, which skews the results rather heavily.

You can only obtain really accurate data with real-world stats, e.g. via Adwords advertising or web analytics for a site that already ranks. That said, the numbers are usually in proportion so if you pick the highest volume relevant keyword you're not likely to be far off.

It really depends on what degree of accuracy you're comfortable with.

Who even better know google data than google itself? More likely that Seobook get data from Google, but updates less than google keyword tools.

I think you're going at it the wrong way.. You need to be seeing which types of keywords are right for your site, through research on performance related keywords. A simple way of doing this is using Ad Words and exporting related searches to your Ad Groups. This way, you're sourcing and filtering keywords based on your own criteria. Just pull a few generics off the top of your head related to your industry to get started.

There are not such kind of tools which can be 100 percent accurate. The Google adword tool is good for suggestion of keywords.

Well, I believe in Google Adwords keyword tool because they also give suggestion of keyword which can be useful at the time of keyword selection.

For global searches then the Google keyword tool alone is better. If you are focusing on just the US then Wordtracker in conjunction with Google keyword tool is the way I would recommend.

Even within Google Keyword tool you need to be sure about the options you use and the figures you get as a result of it.
