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.
I agree,I prefer the old Google keyword tool! I'm having a hard time getting used to the new keyword tool, I guess I have to give it more time.
I find that is it geared towards adwords users and close to worthless for my purpose. The groupings of word suggestions are enormous. And I don't feel I can trust the number of queries per keyword as I did before. Does anyone else have the same feeling?
Can't say it's been very helpful. Appears to be for people making adds rather than keyword searching!

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...

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...

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...
