    So keyword data will be gone soon. What are your thoughts on this and how will you adapt? We can still get decent data from GWT but I'll miss finding those long-tail high converting kw's.

    For the offline marketers, most clients liked seeing how much traffic they were getting from keywords, now we will have to break the news to them... Reporting on conversions and organic traffic to pages will have to do.

    There are tools being developed and tested that will provide a 95% and above accuracy on the organic traffic of not provided data.

    Until they'll be available you can try this:

    1) Get a rank tracking software (majestic, rank tracker whatever)
    2) Run as many kw's as possible for each landing page your site has and see what's ranking
    3) Make an estimate on the traffic each ranking could give you (there are tools for that)
    4) View your landing pages for not provided kw's in GA and see which gets traffic or not.
    5) Do some math

    You'll have a 70-80% accuracy on traffic each kw brings you doing this.
