When I search keyword "lawyers in japan" it says in the blue bars that it had 3,310 Average monthly searches in June as you can see in the mid right section.

Then in the section in the bottom it says that for the same keyword the Average monthly searches where just 30.

I'm very confused as to what is the real Average monthly searches ???

  • The number in bar graph is sum of all the keywords listed below that Google thinks are closely related to this term.
