Question: Could you please go over global vs local monthly searches?
Answer: I wish I knew. Technically, local is supposed to reflect your AdWords account, if you are logged in. But I find the local data can often EXCEED the global data, which is ridiculous. So I just ignore local, and focus on global, all the while realizing this data is loose. More like a survey or a statistic than real, hard data.
They are too busy at Google counting their zillions to realize that their software has these bugs.
