    "Starting August 15, the ability to generate keyword ideas using a YouTube video ID or URL will be temporarily disabled."

    Sorry, but this does not mean that the YT keyword tool will end on aug. 15.

    Agree but youtube is a jerk.. I know this, it will be for a long time before we can use it again.
    It is useless without generating keywords, so it ends for me..

    Thread title is very misleading - it says the feature that allows you to get keywords by Video ID or URL will be unavailable.. not the whole keyword tool!

    The Google Keyword Tool is being modified actually, I'm not sure if I like the changes.

    I think the new Keyword Planner is even better for keyword scraping purposes.

    Google keyword planner replaces google keyword tool.
    http://moz.com/ugc/the-new-adwords-keyword-planner-your-keyword-research-process

    It will ALWAYS show search metrics for exact match, in some places you can select broad match but that will affect only your adwords campaign, the displayed search volume for your keywords remains the same.

    If you have a huge volume of keywords (scraped from google suggestions) and you need search volume data, you can upload txt files with 3000 keywords at once, it accepts bigger volumes too, but you can download data only for 3k keywords at once.

    Automate everything with selenium. :D

    Use a real keyword research tool bro! You should check out the new one in Google Adwords when you login.
