Google Webmaster ToolsOn Friday, Danny Sullivan reported at Search Engine Land that Google is planning to give webmasters a year worth of top search query data within webmaster tools.

Currently, Google only provides 90 days worth of this data. They do so because they stripped away the referrer data years ago, with some reporting 70%+ in [not provided] results due to this change.

So Google is finally giving in and giving webmasters at least a year worth of keyword data. Thing is, it is not perfect, it is only the top search queries, but it is better than nothing.

There is no ETA for when this will launch, but it currently is not.

Pure bullshit, the keyword data in GWT is completely different than in raw logs or GA!

Do you mean that we can find not "provided" keywords in raw logs? I hope not bro. That keyword data are different in GWT and GA I agree. But combining those we probably can get more.

This is my first comment at SERoundTable and it is not specifically related with the post "One Year data in webmaster". Just wanted to know if there is any specific reason because of which you have selected "Search Engine Land" as anchor phrase instead of "reported" to link Danny’s story. Any comment from other experts would also be appreciated. Thanks
