    I heard that they now stopped to use Google for scraping data and they now
    use Bing, is that right?
    If its right then is it still good to check SEO competition for keywords that you
    want to rank on Google or will it bring me the results according to Bing?

    I still use it to check google SERPS every day for hundreds of keywords. I set a delay and it works fine, only checks the top 100 now.

    Yea, MS (post Google's technical changes) is querying Raven data (which is gonna cost handsome) and Bing for retrieving info. I even ran into tweets where MS subscribers were demanding a refund!

    I have had success with Keyword Country. The tool has recently been upgraded with a better keyword clustering algo in mind and I feel it really shines at Keyword research and competitor analysis, when compared to MS.
