Google AdWords New Beta Keyword Tool

Sep 24, 2009 • 8:59 am | comments (13) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google AdWords

Google is apparently testing a new AdWords keyword Tool. You have to be logged into your AdWords account and click on the keyword tool feature to see it. Then when you get there, you will see the old keyword tool with a link to the beta tool.

Here is a picture of the old keyword tool:

When you click on that link towards the top, you get the new keyword tool which is way more advanced. It is broken into two parts, top and bottom. Here is a screen shot of the top:

Then when you add words and filters, you can then get reports that not just show traffic and click estimates but brings in Google other various tools to give deeper insight into those keywords. I could have taken a screen shot myself, but "searchengineman" in Search Engine Watch Forums did a great screen shots with overlays to explain the various components of the tool. Here it is:

This is a nice post... How come the old Google adword keyword tool is still the one showing up? Where can I find the new one? I'd appreciate your response. Anyway, I can see that you have put hard work through your contents. I'm sure I'd come here more often. By the way, you might be interested in some FREE <a href="" rel="nofollow">Marketer Tools</a>. You might wanna check it out. Thanks!

Awesome features! Google is again providing so much value, and I love the direct link to google insights. They really understand what their users want and must have put a lot of thought into this.

Hey Barry, I only noticed this now 6 months later thanks for quoting my original post! searchengineman

Are you guys crazy? The new tool is awful! It's cumbersome to use, generates a much smaller list of relevant terms than the original, and doesn't let you input a list of terms for traffic estimates. Maybe okay if you want to throw together a rinky-dink list of keywords in a short time, but if you want to get a really expansive list of relevant terms, it's terrible.

I love using the google keyword tool. When I was doing research on the <a href="">Speed Reading Software</a> market. I relied on it heavily.

I was seeing some dramatic changes to the tool on 11/1/12 (11th of January 2012) but they are no longer showing when I log into the tool !! It seems that they may have simply been beta testing possible new versions of the tool, not rolling them out as yet. What I saw – and should have screen captured – were the Keyword Ideas being broken down into specific AdGroups.
