Google Adwords keyword tool problem

    I cannot see estimated avg cpc for any keyword when I check it in the Google Adwords keyword tool. Is it just me or others too are facing the problem.

    Looks like it's disappeared, Sid. I just used it yesterday and it was fine. So no -- it's not just you.

    Edited to add: Actually, Sid, "approximate CPC" shows up if you're signed into AdWords. If you don't have an account, just create one. It's free.

      If you have an adwords account and log in you can see the CPC data though. But I need the other data as with 800 keywords data we would gain face the excel issue. Hope you remember.

        Create an AdWords account. The next time you log into the keyword tool, right below the Search button, you'll see a link to "Sign into your AdWords account." You'll still be in the keyword tool -- you'll just have more options.

          I already have an adwords account but as I told you the data when extracted into an excel sheet will create issues if you remember.

    I do remember. I just don't understand why there would be a difference between being logged in or not. Or maybe I'm just not understanding your question here and what you're looking for.

    I thought you were looking to add that column showing avg cpc to the results returned in the keyword tool, no?

    Sid -- You should post on the TKA forum about this if you have access. I just looked at the numbers, and "approximate CPC" (which is there now) appears to be vastly different from the "estimated avg cpc" that we're used to seeing. I don't have a good handle on the changes just yet.

      I have posted it in TKA forums but this is a dreadful change by Google especially if it is a permanent one

        Actually, I think things will even out just fine once everyone understands what the changes are. I look at everything on Google's keyword tool as directional anyway.
