18k?? I ran a quick search and the broad match gave me 6k+ searches, exact 1.6k searches.. nowhere near 18k...
but one shouldnt really 100% believe the figures any keyword research tool shows, because no one can look into the future and predict how many people would be searching for that term next month... sometimes they are also influenced by a lot of factors such as vacations/seasonal holidays/etc... they should be treated more like 'estimates'
then again there would also be some competitors who check their rankings 10 times a day by typing the keyword they want to rank directly into the search bar... which skews up the results even more
but congrats on getting #1... i am still struggling with it lol.. since you alraedy know how to get to #1, just keep ranking more keywords until you see one that brings in sales and a lot more traffic!
