    This is impossible


    Hello,

    Is it impossible to find a tool paid or free to estimate search amounts in numbers on a specific country?

    Appreciate any opinion.

    There isn't one that's accurate. That's is to say that you can guage precise amounts of search e.g. 317 (and 317 actually occurred).

    Google Trends http://www.google.com/trends allows seeing current compared to historical... it doesn't show a factual number but it does note "peak seasons and off-seasons" for queries e.g. many products "peak" at Christmas where many service-base terms come in far lower noting "off season".

    Can be city specific, region specific, and langauage specific.

    Thanks for your opinioin.
    I allready use this tool wich is not good as it doesnt show numbers.

    What do you think of estimating clicks on a specific country by using google adwords? Have you done this?

    Any other opinions?

    Until you run adgroups you don't get factual numbers - in that then, unless you use the term/phrase you don't get anything is advance (beyond a not-so-accurate graph).

    Additionally "if" you use broad or phrase match you don't get accuracy on any specific term as:

    shoes will show numbers for tennis shoes, dress shoes, men shoes, kids shoes, snowshoes, horse shoes, brake shoes, etc. but the number of clicks will only show "shoes" which isn't an accurate and many query clicks will be IYHO be click fraud... which isn't accurate either.

    Have you used wordtracker paid version?
    If you have, do you know if they calculate searches by country?

    I have used the free version and I dont see much difference with overture, besides it gives a competition value. Is wordtracker worth paying?

    Yes used for a couple of years... to find that 'just guessing' was as accurate if not more accurate.

    ... but no country specific data since returns are based on dogpile feed.

    Any 'numbers' provided by Wordtracker consider +/-50% of factual.

    I onchad used several times the paid version and once I got a word wich had very few competitors and good search amount.
    I worked it got it in google and yahoo and got no visitors for it.
    After that I never used word tracker again.
    Have got beter results with overture.
