SEO company and finding searched keywords

I talked to a SEO firm yesterday and they gave me how many people searched under the keywords I supplied to them for Google,MSN, and Yahoo. I thought these search engines did not give this information out especially Google. Does anybody know if there are really ways of finding this information out or was he just giving me a line.

Thanks,

Joe

There are ways not sure about figures for google.

Check digital points keyword tool here

http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/suggestion/

tells you information on searches per day etc. the overture keyword tool also gives you an indication of searches in the previous month.

Shane,

Thank you for the tools but I already have known about them, Basically what I am trying to figure out is if this guy was just guessing of how many times a specific keyword was searched by Google than factually telling me how many times it was searched by Google. I did not think there were any tools available to find out how many times a specific keyword was searched for Google.

Thanks,

Joe

As far as i know there is no way, he must have some forumla that he has tried and tested that say

multiply clicks in yahoo by 1.25 as google is the markest share. I think he is estimating,,


Unless he is getting the information from google adwords......?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

He told me they had custom software for that but for some reason I do not beleive him, unless like you said they had made some sort of formula for this but it seems like having a formula for that would be ver in-accurate.

Thanks,

Thanks Shane for the information, It did sounds like he was trying to reel us in. I do not think there is anything he would do differently than we can do in house. I beleive I have gained enough knowledge to do this task ourselves thank to EE :).
