How is Search Volume rounded?
I'mm just reviewing some search volume stats.
Because it is rounded to the nearest 10, when I see a search volume of 10 is that a search volume of more than 5 rounded up to 10?
Similarly is a search volume of 0 truly 0, or is it a search volume smaller than 5 and therefore rounded down to 0?
Re: How is Search Volume rounded?
To be honest, I don't think it matters. A search volume of 10 I would consider negligible. In the keyword tool, the majority of keywords with this search volume won't even be eligible to show because, well, of the "search volume" reason in AdWords.
These volume figures are estimates and they're NEVER accurate. So if you're worrying about the 2.5 searches per month rounding, you need to consider the margin for error is much greater.
Sorry I don't have any further info for you.
