For example, for keyword gifts, keyword tool from Google shows Global Monthly Searches as 16,600,000 and (India) Local Monthly Searches as 823,000 so is it really a right numbers?


You are using the Broad match type (on the left hand side). Try running the query with Phrase match type which will give you more realistic numbers.

    To clarify: "broad match" includes synonyms and longer queries, "phrase match" includes longer phrases with the word, "exact match" is searches for just that word. I always use exact match only. Feb 25 '13 at 11:38
