Quick question on Local Monthly Search Total Count Column

Hello,

 

I am new to this & had a basic question on the stats when I do Keyword searches.

 

I just want clarification on the " LOCAL MONTHLY SEARCHES" number that pops up when I do a keyword search term.

 

Would this Local Monthly search stat  count a same person doing a search multiple times using the same keyword phrase as one search each time he puts the same phrase?  Thus, for example  a 300 total  local monthly search for a keyword phrase would actually count the same individual more than once if he is doing multiple search runs of the SAME exact phrase? So in other words, 4, 5 or 7 of the 300 total could be coming from just one person?

 

Hope I am making myself clear because I am still learning all this.

 

Thanks so much for your assistance.

 

Anthony

Hello esp; welcome;

 

This is a nice question;


"Rest assured" that Google has the technical tools to analyze invalid searches from a given IP or a script / bot performing repeated queries. (If someone "spare time" to do that..... Smiley Happy ).  Google will "screen out" these queries from statistical data presented.

Having said that, you should keep in mind that these figures are statistical numbers, with a "statistical level of confidence"
