    My prediction:
    We will begin hovering around 100% Not-Provided in regards to keywords by November 28th, 2013,
    I would say there will be a month or so following that before Google releases a PR regarding it's move towards the semantic web and how this applies to the Hummingbird update. Co-occurrences and citations along with search intent will completely replace traditional keyword reporting.

    What are your thoughts?

    Before some n00b chimes in about how KEYWORDS WILL ALWAYS BE IMPORTANT, trust me, I understand, baby. Shhhhhh. It's okay. Re-read what I have written in regards to how Google will provide that type of information in the future.

    Information is the lifeblood of any business

    We give google all our info
    and in return they will give nothing back.

    Get used to it,
    Its the future

    As it is this new browser update is driving me crazy
    thinking of going oer to bing or somewhere else

    Spoke with a rep from a large SEO firm earlier today and they are quoting the 29th of November as their official D-Day.

    As long as you have a tool like the Adwords Keyword Planner to tell you more or less which words to target you'll be ok.

    Analytics data though is nice, is not 100% vital to your success.

    You don't need Analytics data to bank in internet marketing.

    If you know what keywords have search volume (Adwords Keyword Planner) and can do competition analysis (Ahrefs, Majestic SEO) etc. and can rank your sites you'll be fine.

    Google Analytics already hides most (well at least for me) keywords anyway, if it goes completely dark well whatever the search keyword portion of the tool is already relatively useless with all the sh!t it hides.

    Sure you may not be able to optimize pages for perhaps keywords you didn't know you were ranking for, but hey, you can't win em all.

    I have a ton of affiliate sites that I don't even have any analytics on that bank. All I know is I am ranking for my target keywords and getting clicks to my affiliate offers.
