Google Takes “The Keyword Tool” Out of Beta

SMS Text

Google’s Adwords blog announced on Friday that they were taking their newest keyword tool out of beta and that it had been launched as the only tool in AdWords and it was to be called “The Keyword Tool”. With the newly updated feature, users will now have the ability to search by keywords, websites and categories and will receive a single set of results. Along with “easy keyword refinement”, the option to add negative keywords from an easy to use drop-down menu and other advanced options.

Along with all those improvements, The Keyword Tool has a new way to calculate Global and Local Monthly Searches. Google will no longer include traffic from search partners, instead only taking data from search traffic. The new tool can be accessed whether users are signed in or not, though the blog recommends users by signed in while using it.

Check out the new and improved keyword tool and let Google know what you think.
