Google Keyword Planner
The once useful and efficient Google Keyword tool is no longer in use. It has now been reincarnated as Google Keyword Planner. This has earned a mixed response from its users, and there are both positives and negatives to be found with this new Keyword Planner application.
The Keyword Planner function is a combination of the Keyword Tool and the Traffic Estimator, which aims to give you results for both through one platform. Here is a breakdown of the positives and negatives of this new Keyword Planner.
Positives of Keyword Planner:
- A major development in the Keyword Planner is its ability to provide the volume of a keyword search at a city level, which enables organisations to segment their audience to specific geographic locations for optimum results.
- Users can now upload up to 10,000 keywords from their own list to get performance data.
- The Keyword Planner also allows users to categorise results by ad group, landing page, among others.
Negatives of Keyword Planner:
To use the Keyword Planner, users must now login to a registered AdWords account.
The Keyword Planner doesn’t offer the following;
- Match type data for search volume.
- Global vs. Local monthly searches.
- Device targeting.
