Question: Why when I look at my Analytics for what Keywords people are finding my site on, show zero searches on the GoogleAdWords Keyword Tool?
Answer: The Google keyword tool breaks down at low volumes. In those situations, you have to use your instincts and guesses; set up your SEO using some knowledge from the tools, optimize the site, and then use Google ANALYTICS to see actual inbound searches. You can work around the fact that the major tools do not work at really low volumes. I teach some of this in the class on keywords, and can advise my students one-on-one if that issue is especially relevant to them.
