Google retires Google Adwords Keyword Tool

Google Adwords Keyword Tool ReplacedA tragedy has happened in the SEO world. Google Adwords has replaced their old keyword tool with a much less helpful “Keyword Planner” today.

It does seem that Google has restructured the new Keyword Planner with most of the functionality of the old Keyword Tool. I was encouraged to see that the Avg. monthly searches are still available and the ability to change to “Exact Match” is also present.

Google Adwords Keyword Planner Exact MatchKeywords can be added to a “group” but it’s not quite as comprehensive as the keyword group. Maybe Google hasn’t worked out all the kinks yet but we will all have to learn to work with this new tool.

On the bright side, the playing field is even – everyone gets to use the same tool so unless you lean on proprietary keyword tools, this will be the new keyword planning tool of the industry.
