Add month labels to keyword trend graph

It would be nice if some labels could be added, to
the main trend graph at least, indicating exactly which month each
column represents.
It would be a massive help if you could instantly see (approximately)
which months you're looking at without having to work it out.

        Just in case anyone else needs this info.. I've just called Support and the answer is this: after the first few days of a month, the last month on the right hand side is last month's data, e.g. I'm writing this comment on 7th November so the last month on the right hand side of the Trend chart is October data. Then work backwards as you read the chart right to left. Therefore the first month showing on the left hand side is this current month a year ago.

        I agree - I like using the keyword magic tool but don't know what time periods the numbers relate to...

        It's not very clear what the date range is on the "trend" graph in Keyword Overview

        I can't believe this hasn't been implemented yet. Seriously?? This graph is practically useless without month labels.

        This was one of the first things that came to mind soon as I looked up keyword data -- What is the starting month on the graph? It surely can't be Jan -- Pretty sure Air Conditioning Repair doesn't peak in October.

        This is needed, it's unnecessarily opaque, and the exported trend data is virtually unusable in the current format.

        A simple "12 months to [most recent month/year]" in the exported column header would even work.

        I was trying to figure out the large trend graph on the Keyword report and i had to call into support to ask. Since it's trailing 12 + 2 to 3 months, having an indicator of the month at that level would be very helpful. I know that would be tricky to do on the keyword line items, but adding that info to the tool tip would be great!

        Thanks,
        Olivia

        I received a feedback fro the user about the trend graph of the keywords. Following is the feedback :I'm doing budget spend forecast and using this as an indicator. As a user it would be helpful for the months to be marked on the chart.
