My name is Vijay. Im from India and am a prominent member in some other forums... Another software engg... This is a wonderful forum. Glad to find it.

This is my first post. I have come looking for answers to my query, but I guess I'll stay here for good

I am trying to build a site/niche. I have been using Google KeywordToolExternal. But just sometime back I had a look at Google's sktool too. Now both give contrasting results and hence the confusion.

For ex:
When I search for "herbal green tea" using KeywordExternalTool it gave me 8100 local US search numbers. The same keyword gave paltry 290 searches on google sktool.

So my question is this:

Why does

give entirely different results. And what is their significance. Which tool gives the real picture?

Pl help
