Does the keyword tool display volume of impressions/searches or clicks

I am doing keyword research using the adwords keyword tool. I need assistance in understanding the numbers I am getting. When it displays volume (global and local) what are these numbers representing? I first thought it was total searches on google for that keyword, but then I thought it could also be ad impressions for that keyword, or the number of clicks on ads for that keyword. Thanks!

The tool does show volume for searches on your keyword. (Those searches might not all be precise, of course.)

 

Global means just what it says--around the globe.  Local means the country you're in.

 

Hope that helps.
