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 read that it is still in development so not fully functional yet. Probably Google does not want to help the supposed "content farms". It's a game. I do know a few writers who still use it and find it an ok tool to use along with other tools.

It's getting more than 1600 views a month, with almost 1000 coming from Google.But here's what's odd: Google Keyword Planner...

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...
