Today I did a search for some keywords on Google keyword planner and noticed that it no longer is giving an exact figure for the "Average Monthly Searches"

It is just giving me a range, for example a range could be from 10k-100k

It says for detailed view you have to setup and run a camping, I did not try that yet

Is it only me? How bad is this for estimating a keyword value

What are your thoughts?

They are doing so people will be forced to run some campaigns atleast. I bet that about 90% of the keyword planner were free users until now.

It's not only you, I also saw the same thing on my side.

I don't like it. With that said, they still give you a range, and it's not like it was totally accurate to begin with. I think that if you used it long enough before, you kind of know where stuff falls. I wonder if they are any other free, good tools out that operate like the planner used to?

You're right. It is not 100% anyway. You'll notice Google only publishes search data, never click data, in the Planner.

Hi,

I have checked it last month, i think this update have been made due to free account subscribers using keyword planner with taking campaigns. So i think you should take some adword compaigning to get exact number of searches.

Thanks

You know what? I think this might be a good change for selling SEO services. Before it wasn't easy to convince a prospect that only 10 people are looking for "spa in detroit" per month. But now "up to 100" people are looking for it LOL!

This is good for commerce.
