Sadly I just found out that the Google Keyword Tool has been taken down and replaced with a new Keyword Planner. :oops: I still have yet to try the new tool but I hope it is as good as the Keyword Tool. You have to log in to your Adwords account which is a downside for me as I am used to just typing in the search box to find the tool and using it. The keyword tool was a great tool for research so I hope Keyword Planner isn't too much different.

How many of you guys use to use the Google Keyword Tool? Have you tried the new Keyword Planner? What do you think?

I've just noticed that too and I'm just about to try the new keyword planner. I'm one of those guys who hates change initially, and then discover that it was for the best after all. I'm sure I'll hate it, and then love it after i understand more of the features and the major differences.

I don't think it's that big of a deal really. You can open an AdWords account for free and just access it through that. They are probably just trying to limit all the third party services that are pulling large amounts of data from it without paying to use their APIs like they are supposed to.

I think this is one of the issues Market Samurai ran into in the past, and they had to start using Bing for some of their data since they didn't want to pass the API costs onto consumers - which apparently would have been high because of all the data it pulls from their reporting. I'm curious to see if they will be able to function at all now, since I think they were getting around the restrictions in the past by using multiple IP addresses, but now you need unique Google AdWords accounts.

I've tried it and I love it. The default match type is now exact match unlike the old tool which was broad match. The exact match is more accurate and a lot of people won't make the mistake of searching with the broad match.

The Google Keyword tool was a tool that was great for doing keyword research. Now it has been changed to Keyword Planner but it still works great for doing research.

As a newbie, there are two common mistakes you should avoid while using the Google Keywrd Planner. The first is that you should always make use of the exact match. Don't use the broad match. Secondly, the competition data is showing competition among Adwords advertisers. It has nothing to to with ranking in Google's organic result.

Because of this common mistake, I've taken time to write about this tool here:
Google Keyword Research Tool: How to Use it & Fatal Mistakes to Avoid. Newbies will find it very helpful.

I found using the Keyword Planner a pleasant surprise as it can perform essentially the same functions as the Keyword Tool. It's just after so many years of having it as a resource, I did have some concerns and perhaps some apprehension. And because Google has recently ended other services -- notably Google Reader -- I was feeling already that they were taking away all of my favorite toys! But I am satisfied with Keyword Planner. I can do all of my research tasks as before.

I agree with others who have noted that the exact match -- which is now the default mode -- is preferable. It's true, you do get better and more accurate results with exact match rather than broad match.

I too just found out about the demise of Keyword Tool and the launch of Keyword Planner. It's different but didn't really take much time to get used to.

I was using it to decide on a new domain name for a site I'm going to build and at first I was muttering to myself because I just want to get it over with. A little patience and paying attention to the new tabs helps.

I found this out when I am too busy researching for new keywords which will work best for one of my sites. Changes doesnt really matter but getting used to it at a very hectic time is not really good at all. It took me 2 hours finishing my task with Keyword Planner which supposedly took me 15 minutes with the old Keyword Tool.

Google Keyword Tool is no more. This is an old news. I have been using Keyword Planner for a couple of weeks now and have gotten the hang off it really well.

I like it better than Keyword tool.

I would have to say that I enjoyed Keyword Planner very much. When Google announced that they will replace the Keyword Tool, I was a bit worried. I did a lot of keyword research and extracted the data on a spreadsheet. But when Keyword Planner was released, I found out that it works just as well, if not better, as the old Keyword Tool.

It might take a little getting used to because of the new interface, but it really works well.

The keyword planner tool is so much better, in my opinion. It has more choices and follows the Google trends way better than the Google tool ever did. We needed a update on this tool a while ago and Google came through with this. It helps a lot with looking up new niches and particular long tails.

I don't like change... GKT was better but I'm sure that over time I will adjust. Thankfully my other resources have stayed the same.
