Starting this morning, when requesting keyword stats using the
Targeting Idea Selector, Targeted Monthly Searches is returning a data
point for June 2010, but has no count.

Hi Jason,

This is the expected behavior. The monthly search volume data for the
last month only becomes available about a week after the month has
ended.

I haven't noticed this for previous months. If this is expected, why
is the data point for a month with no data not omitted? The current
response makes it difficult to distinguish between the last month not
being available yet, and the last month having a 0 search volume.

Hi Jason,

Thank you for the feedback. The response from the core engineering
team has previously been that this attribute returns the last 12
months and the corresponding search volume data, if any. Months that
don't have search volume data are not omitted.

Best,
- Eric
