    Hey guys, as you know google has replaced their keyword tool with the google planner tool.
    I think its bad news because i liked their keyword tool and i was using it a lot for finding good niches and good keywords.
    I tried the new tool the google planner, and i dont find it useful for me.
    When i search for a keyword i get results that i dont know if they are broad or exact or a phrase.
    I search for a keyword and got 14k searches per month for that keyword and no matter which option i chose (broad,exact,phrase) i get the same result, wtf??
    Anyone knows how to use it properly and how to find out what is the real exact searches per month for a keyword?

    Yeah, interested in this too.

    Are there any alternatives to check keywords?

    The only erroneous point I could see was #1. Perhaps it was because you had previously defaulted it to EXACT matches prior? My results were broad, as I hadn't used it prior, and it was visibly evident when I exported the .csv results.

    To be on point with the OP, you're bang on.

    If you would at least bother reading through that 1 page of the thread I posted there, you would save yourself time to write that post:

    KW Planner is awesome, and highly accurate. KW tool was never good for KW research anyways, it showed you the EXACT SAME shit every other niche EMD SEO is seeing. You have to get creative to uncover untapped KWs. Think of terms that are related to the niche you want to target, but are NOT money keywords. This is the easiest way to do KW research and almost no one is doing it.

    The Google Planner tool is similar to the older version but not as easy to use. You just add your keywords in the form field and click search

    It gives you the same info as the keyword tool
