How accurate is the keyword planner tool in providing statistics? The reason I am asking this is because, I could see alot of keywords having search volume of 10.

 

Thanks,

Davis

Statistics in its essence has a margin of error. It is not precise. The more data you have, the more accurate the figure. However, the error is always there. 

So, if the keyword planner shows, (for example), CPCs for a  low search volume KWs, these CPCs are less accurate than of  KWs  which have  high search volume.
