Hi Cecil,

I checked this with my specialists, and would like to inform you that there is a known technical issue around this, which might be causing the discrepancies in keyword ideas when searching from different locations.

Hey Taxila,

It's obvious that Keyword volume is different for different countries. It's depend upon the location, popularity and Many other things.

For an example if you find volume of "Pizza Delivery NY" then it will good volume in US not for other country. Nobody gonna search with this keyword from Maxico or Canada.

Hi Kandarp

( EXAMPLE) while i search for the keyword search volume i selected list of country USA & CA For example keyword "pizza delivery " and the i got Avg.search 8000 per month, Then i search for the same keyword now i selected the country along with USA, CA, zimbabwe & nigeria now search volume show around 1000.... I didnt exclude USA & CA for that keywords if there is no search volume for those country means it should show the USA & CA search volume Right ? but its showing only 1000 WHY???

Hello,

 

When you combine multiple countries or locations to check the Average Monthly searches of any key phrases, then this tool i.e. keyword planner is going to show you an average of these monthly search volume stats which is actually the combination of all locations you entered.

 

So, you cannot say that when multiple locations are combined, it is going to show you high searches or equivalent to when you searched for few locations for that particular keyword. It may increase/decrease depending upon the past 12 months average statistical figures which the tool has gathered in the past.

 

I would suggest you to review this help center reference and understand how Keyword Planner works with different permutations and combinations: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2999770?ctx=tltp#Plan
