    It is renewal time for many of my sites, but when I try to evaluate each one I am noticing the main Kws search account at Google KW tool "exact" decreased like crazy!

    My KWs dropped from 2400 monthly searches to something like 720 as an example.

    What is going on with my keywords?

    Do I have to dump those sites with weak main KWs?

    Is the renewal of a site which main KW has now 800 Global Monthly Searches at an estimated $0.80 CPC valuable?

    Thank You

    The keyword tool changed dramatically maybe 4 or 5 months ago.

    I had many 3000+ exact keyword phrases that I ranked for that became less than 1000 overnight.

    It's fine though as the earnings are all the same.

    In fact I have started going after many less than 1000 exact terms and have been getting some good results and income.

    Happens all the time. It sucks but everyone goes through this at some point and finds out a keyword they thought was awesome really is not.
