How To Find Monthly Search Volumes

How To Find Monthly Search Volumes

In my post, I show you how to find the monthly search volumes for keyword phrases.

I have two tools to introduce you to that show monthly search volumes under the keyword phrase.

Keyword tools show approximate data. You should use the data as a guide.

Google has search volume data, but they don’t share this.

Let’s get started.

What Is Keyword Search Volume?

Keyword search volume is the number of times a search phrase appears over a month.

The data you see is the average keyword search volume of the previous twelve months.

Search volumes help you understand if a keyword phrase has the potential to drive traffic to your website.

You must analyze the first page results for each phrase to decide if you can rank.

The best keywords have high search volume but little competition. These are hard to find.
