    Title says all! Today I filtered out some really good low competition keywords with decent searches with Market Samurai.
    When I inserted my keyword in the new interface of the Google Keyword Tool, the keyword was no where to be seen whereas the old one shows 40k per month under exact searches. :confused: MS shows the same result as the old interface. Really confused at whom to trust and move ahead?? Happened with many of the keywords today.

    Any ideas guys? :indiffere

    I really like the older google keyword interface better, for one, it allows you to save as a text file and the new one doesn't.

    The old interface was pretty good i don't know why did they change it anyway

    The newer is so bad and takes time and who knows if its accurate as the old one or not .

    Is the old one accurate? There's a hell and heaven difference between the results I saw today :disappoin

    Old Interface showing 40k Exact Monthly Searches and New Interface doesn't gives any result about the keyword.

    Yeah I had same problem.

    New Google is lowering some niches and is not showing another ones.

    Today I was trying to check up keyword "Facebook" and it showed me only 1 result : "Facebook login". No "Facebook" or any other keywords...

    I have seen some major drop (1000%) in couple of my keywords in Google Keyword Tool - but no drop in real results...

    Somebody is playing with Google and I think they are preparing some changes...

    Hope we will know anytime soon!!!

    Does this mean the Old Interface is now useless as it gives the OLD DATA? :dong:

    No, old data is up to date - new data is crap.

    Yes I noticed the new data/interface sucks. A lot of keywords that I know rank high are just not listed anymore. You can still see their searches in G00gle Trends (for now??) but not in the keyword tool.

    Here's the original Google Keyword Tool:

    Code:
    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal?forceLegacy=true
    Remember Google isn't 100% accurate, and now I would recommend after talking to several marketers that you don't look at exact global searches, but exact local searches because that is more accurate.

    But that would just tell us about the local searches of a country. Suppose a keyword is less searched in USA but its search volume is high in other countries then? Google has put us in a great confusion. :15:
