A Twitter poll by Liraz Postan showed that many SEOs and SEMs go pretty deep with their keyword research. 60% of those who took the poll said they go as low as 10 on the volume chart when digging into keywords.

27% said as low as 50 and 12% said as low as 70. Here is the poll:

A lot of responses on Twitter said they would go down to even 0 volume.

Here are some good replies to the Twitter poll:
