As You Have Probably Noticed the Google Keyword Tool is Gone
So what is everyone going to do now that the Google keyword tool is never coming back?
You can use the keyword planning tool but you will probably find that it isn’t as good.
The Google keyword tool has been replaced by the Google keyword planner which functions largely in the same manner as the keyword tool did before it went away. There will be a learning curve for many people as the keyword planning tool is not as basic as the keyword tool was and it delivers information a little differently.
The new keyword planning tool gives a more general number for search traffic. They use an algorithm that uses broad, phrase and exact match traffic and also by adding mobile traffic. This is both good and bad.
The Google keyword planner is not going to provide information as accurately as the Google keyword tool that is now gone.
