Wrong Average Monthly Searches in Keyword Planner

Hello, 

 

I have been working in the Keyword Planner today and noticed a large discrepency between the Avg Monthly Searches while in the Keyword Planner and after the file has been downloaded as an Excel spreadsheet. 
Example: The keyword i'm searching is "Call Recording" in Calgary, Alberta (Language: English) In the Planner it has the results of 10 avg monthly searches. However after it's been downloaded in Excel, it has the avg monthly searches of 3600. I honestly have no idea as to why it's giving such a large discrepency.

Unfortunately Dave, that thread does not resolve the OP's issue, and many users are seeing the same thing. 10 avg. monthly searches for high volume search terms in highly populated locations. Can you explain it?

It doesn't? Are you working with the OP? Did he/she tell you that it didn't resolve the issue? Not that it's an issue to be resolved Smiley Happy

Hi, wondering if anyone has an answer about Ave. monthly search and Breakdown by location's Ave. monthly search difference/gap in some Exact match keywords. For example if you searched "real time" , ave. monthly search is 300k a month but when you do breakdown by location it's 3.6 million ave monthly search. How is that possible?
