Keyword planner fathered Google Keyword tool.

Google keyword tool

When it comes to on-page SEO optimization, Google keyword tools cannot be neglected in targeting a reasonable keyword. Either targeting a competitive keyword or not competitive keyword, Google keyword tool is very much good at that, and almost accurate in giving a precise statistic on how competitive a keyword was is, but it was quit disappointed to hear that Google Keyword tools is now RESTING IN PERFECT PEACE, this is not to condemn Google Keyword tool though but to tell you after the darkness there comes the morning light.

Before we discuss what Keyword planner is, grant me the privilege to reveal the reason behind this post to you my loyal readers. Just this morning I was on one of the loyal Facebook group I belong to and discover a question was asked about the alternative to Google Keyword and the responding were just amazing, the responders talk about keyword planner and I decided to share with you my readers that Google keyword is still alive in a dynamic way but talking about keyword planner.

Keyword planner fathered Google keyword tool



There are many benefit associated to using the keyword planner, some of which are:

1. Keyword planner enables SEO and SEM expert to generate high volume of keyword analysis within a certain geographical location and with a certain city level.

2. Expert can upload as many as possible keyword from their personal keyword list to keyword planner to discover a great performance date on their keywords.

What goes up must come down and this is a real fact but the reverse is not really the case when it comes to keyword planner, despite the fact that keyword planner fathered Google keyword tool, there are still some disadvantages associated with it, which is explain below.

1. Keyword planner unlike the old Google keyword tools (lol, old Google keyword tool!), before you can use keyword planner, users are coerce to either login with Google Adwords detail or create a new Adwords account otherwise user cannot make use of it.

2. Just a bit difference from the first point, keyword planner don’t have definitely data match type when a certain keyword is being researched unlike Google keyword tool, no definite target  and the searched keyword cannot be compared just like that of Google keyword tool, i.e. Local monthly search vs. global monthly search.

Your view: what do you observe` about keyword planner with all these deficiencies? Will it be able to out-shine it predecessor (Google keyword tool)? Will user get to know more about this on time? Share your view about KEYWORD PLANNER.

      Hi Collins,

      I got disturbed much about this new KPT; I think I have little knowledge about GKT but using this new KPT we declined many users because of Google Adwors account.

    I don’t know why Google Shutdown Keyword tool. At that time when GKT was alive, I was not aware how useful this tool was. If Planner tool is a good I will try to use it but it looks like it is not a freeware.
