Well, if you haven’t heard the news yet, the word on the street is Google has shut down
their widely popular keyword tool for public use. Now if you want access to Google sanctioned keyword data you have to sign up for an Adwords account. Of course there are a ton of theories surrounding why Google would make this decision, some are more obvious than others. But to many of us Google’s motivations seem pointless when we still have work to do! Luckly we exist in a vibrant industry where innovation is at the core of most of what we do. As such we have a slew of different tools available to replace Google’s tool.
See all is not lost! We still have great tools to do almost all of our keyword research with out Google! ? Until next time, happy researching!
