I've seen at least 5 threads about how Keyword planner sucks and how it doesn't have exact match option etc. In most of the data centers, the keyword tool has been officially disabled. If some of the people here would rather read something about the new tool, instead of crying publicly, we would avoid so many threads. 1. How can I see the exact match search volume? - The search number you see is actually exact match. If you want to see the broad or phrase (no idea why you would need that), just add the keywords to your project and you can move from there. 2. But why are the exact match search volumes higher/lower than those in the old keyword tool? - Because keyword tool was showing the search volumes in the current month. Keyword planner calculates the average per year, so that's why the numbers are different. 3. Well, but it doesn't show the local search volume! - It does show ONLY local search volume of the country you selected in targeting. If you want to see global search statistics, then change targeting to all countries. 4. But but... it doesn't show search trends! - Yeh it does, just hover your mouse over that small graph icon right of the keyword. These new search trends are actually far more better, cause you can see exact names of the months. 5. But... well... my tools do not work anymore! - Yeh, so buy them and update them, instead of downloading cracked versions and they will work fine. Hope that this thread will help to some of you, who are too lazy to read and research more on new tools. Also: The CPC estimate is far more precise and the search volumes as well. Of course, it's still an estimate and you always have to consider that, but it's still far more precise than the old KW tool.
