I use the keyword tool probably 4 times a week. Today I logged on to find the entire tool has changed over to the new Google Keyword Planner which combines the keyword research and adwords traffic tools into one. It is a little difficult to use at first so if you haven't been there in a while, I suggest you log on as soon as possible to get your bearings.
Sorry for all those hubbers who painstakingly created awesome Google Keyword tutorials using the old tool. Those hubs are now permanently outdated so if you have one, you know what you have to do.
Hmmmm...mines still the same.
Must be a gradual roll out.
It's not the same URL. If you go to the regular adwords URL and Keyword Tool, you'll see a small message at the top of the box for the Keyword Planner.
I read that there is going to be a full roll out in July and that select Adword accounts were getting first looks. I guess I was selected. I should start reading those Google alerts I receive...
The navigation of the Keyword Planner is different but works like a wizard of sorts. It's geared more towards advertiser instead of publishers and content marketers.
The above images are pretty small, but on the landing page you can search for keywords or ad groups or upload keywords to see how they will perform at certain PPC levels.
Searching for keywords, you can select a phrase or a competitors website to see what they are targeting (something that has always been available but under used)
Once you select a phrase, you can then select between ad groups or related keywords.
livewithrichard, thanks for the heads up. I gave it a shot and it came back with "No ideas were returned for your query". Not an auspicious start...

I think my last try was over a year ago. I honestly have never had success with it EVER, even with third party tools, bar ONE title about three years back. If you're freaked out by it, don't stress. You don't HAVE to do keyword research to get good traffic. Personally my two go-tos right now are:1....

Who hates Google's New Keyword Planner?I hate it for my purposes, but maybe I am not using it correctly. I liked their old tool much better.

What are your strategies for finding good keywords for articles, and what factors do you associate with a good keyword or keyword phrase?

I was a little bummed when I found out the Google Keyword Tool was going away this month. I've been using the Keyword Planner, but I can't say I like it as much. It's functional, I guess, sort of, and I figured I was being my usual doesn't-deal-with-change-so-well self, so I accepted I...

CPM, as I understand it. is the amount an advertiser pays per 1000 impressions from your hub. I have noticed that the number of impressions that show in the earnings tabs is lower than the number of views. I am guessing that is because a viewer must stay on your hub a certain amount of time for it...

I've noticed something odd about the view stats for one of my hubs. It ranks 2nd in Google search for the relevant keyword, just behind the Wikipedia article on the subject. It's getting more than 1600 views a month, with almost 1000 coming from Google.But here's what's odd: Google Keyword Planner...
