Adamap posted a screen capture of Google showing actual search volume numbers in the Google AdWords keyword tool. I honestly was not sure if this was a doctor'ed up screen shot, but I reported it anyway at Search Engine Land. I am glad I did, it appears that this is in fact being tested.
Here are some of the comments from the blog posts and forum discussions backing this finding.
I believe it's been in limited trial since January 23rd. Very cool.
I saw that the other day I could have had a scoop???
It only came up this morning and I have not seen it since.
So if this is true and if this is going to happen, this can be huge for keyword researchers.
