Can it be? It is not showing for me.
If anybody knows how to access the old version I would be most grateful, that place is invaluable for long string keywords!
You are talking about Google Adwords Keyword Tool, right?
Here is my link and I just tried it and it worked.
https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeting/ … earch.none
Hi Cagsil, yes that link went to the new version. Thanks anyway, I dont get on very well with that one.
That is the same one I received from Sunforged's hub.
It's the only link I know of. If anything, even the old link is going to be redirected to the new setup.
The one linked to by rmr above does go to the old version
If you haven't tried it, well worth a look. I find it much easier to find good long string phrases via that tool.
They've had both available for quite a while, now. I really hope it stays that way. I really don't like the new one either.
Well until recently they had a link from the new one titled 'Previous Interface'. Thats how I used to find the old version.
They have now removed that link, suggesting that they are trying to ween people off of it. I wont use the new one, I would sooner use Market Samurai... the old version just comes in handy sometimes, particularly for inspiration.
That one seems to go to the new version. I was just using the old one here: https://adwords.google.com/select/Keywo … egacy=true
Awesome, many thanks!
Swiftly bookmarked of course, I really do not get along with that new version!
Here is a direct link to the previous version:
https://adwords.google.com/select/Keywo … egacy=true
For what it is worth, I use the Keyword Tool Dominator application that use the previous version too.
All I can access now is the new one.
And I really don't like that one.
But...Google likes it, so now YOU will like it too!
Remember back when Google cared what users thought?
Yup. I lost it too. It was there this morning, but now it's gone. Jeez I really hate change.
Yup, it does look like the Google Keyword Tool has officially been upgraded. I guess it is time to figure out how to use it.
I noticed this today Ryan. Unfortunately, no matter how I try and access the old version, I just get the new one. I really dislike it. How come I can't use rmr's link? Works for others right?
Nope - can't get it. I found this though:
Search-based keyword tool will be discontinued soon
Please try out the updated keyword tool. You can get keyword suggestions by words, phrases, websites or categories.
Why are we transitioning?
Apparently the beta version (new one) was launched in April, with the ability to switch between the two allowable up to September. Then the new will fully replace the old. Meaning we'd all better get used to it.
Oddly enough, search assist already throws out the folloing phrase:
original google keyword tool
Frogdropping, have you ever signed up for a Market Samurai free trial?
When that free trial expires it still allows you to access the keyword tool That is what I will be using from now on!
Yeah I noticed that too. I got the free trail and let it run out. But I see you can still get the keyword tool, which really is all I need.
I don't know. I could have. Rings a bell. This is a new laptop though. Rats
Good deal! I haven't opened Market Samurai since my trial ran out. Thanks for the tip!
Well, this sucks. You would think they would keep it if so many people were still using it.
Has anyone else noticed or is it just me that Google is "The One Ring To Rule Them All" ????
Hhhhmmm, I like the old version better. It was more helpful and user friendly to me.

Can someone explain to me in plain English what competition means with regard to us?It says there that it gives an indication of how many advertisers are bidding for a keyword. But what does that mean?I always thought high competition meant that too many webpages are after the same keyword, but now...

I've read a lot of hubs on the Google Keyword Tool, and the problem i have is trying to understand how to use it. Now, when i upload the site i type in the words to add as tags for my hubs, which is very helpful.The problem is, if you sign up for Adwords, do you get access to more resources for...

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...

So, as I'm forced to use it, I have been.The good news is that alterations wise - it just looks more collected. Professional. Nothing obvious software-wise stands out. I'm no techno-geek, that's just my opinion.The bad? I did a shed load of keyword research recently, using the old interface. I'm...

...guess what? It seems that unless I'm missing something, you now need to have an AdWords account to get the keyword tool to show the estimated average CPC for a keyword/phrase. If you don't have an AdWords account, you can *sort* by CPC, but you can't actually view the CPC column any...
