Two things, basically. First of all, the keyword research tool can sometimes return strange results, so it’s always good to do your research simultaneously in Google Keyword Tool and Traffic Travis.
Secondly, the software can be difficult to get a grasp of when you use it for the first time (due to its size). But there are video tutorials available that will surely help you to get started.
