As you can see on the top we have typed ” technology ” and its searches are 673,000. what does it mean its very competitive keyword and very difficult to rank. Scroll down and look for 500-3000 searches keyword.

We have highlighted two figures and given a name 1 and 2. These are the search volume of the keywords.

1st one showing us the exact searches and 2nd one is showing us the estimated per month searches like 10k to 100k. it means this keyword was searched between 1k to 100k per month and in the first one, it’s showing the exact per month result.
Let’s talk about the 2nd one first. Its showing 10-100k and 1k to 10k. These searches results are showing by the Google keyword planner as you know it is free that’s why Google showing us estimated results, not the exact results. However, to get the exact result in keyword planner we have installed an additional extension from Google web store called ” Keyword everywhere” its also free extension just like WordPress plugin to add extra functionality to your existing tool.
