    I use to see this green bar under competition in google to indicate the competition but now I dont see it anymore. I just see "high" "medium" and "high" which I dont want. How to take it back to the green bars.

    Thanks.

    Both the bars and the high, medium and low are ways to represent a number system. Everything is rated between 0.01 and 1.0. Low is 0.01-0.34; Medium is 0.35-0.66; high is 0.67-1.0. (I haven't crunched these numbers in a while but this is what I remember, might be off by a few points though.) If you download the keywords into an excel you will get the raw numbers. Smaller numbers means there was a smaller bar and number closer to 1.0 probably had a full bar. I don't know of any way to get those bars back but you can get more accurate data by downloading anyway.
