Problem with Google Keyword Tool External

15 replies
Have you noticed that Google Keyword Tool External is becoming incovenient to use?

After just few minutes of showing up the results, the present page is automatically redirected to adword advertising. THis is annoying, any suggestion for alternative reliable free keyword tool?

Thanks

    Google has made changes to the GKT and to how their SERP displays.

    As it stands right now, their still in the BETA stages, which means you can go back to the Previous Interface by logging in to GKT, look to the top of the page on your right hand side, find and click on, "Previous Interface"

      Yep, I am having the exact same problem. It is extremely annoying as it just takes you to the Adwords login page. Is this Google's sneaky way of getting people to sign up to Adwords?

      As it is, it is unusable as after about 30 seconds you are redirected and lose all of your data and settings.

      I guess it's back to the old version for me.

    I'm glad to know it's not just me. I thought I was having a problem with firefox, but apparently it's googles way of saying "don't spend too much time here... Get what you need and get out!"

      Truer words were never said. Google is no different than any other business. it is all about the money.

      But then, Google Keyword numbers are not to be believed, so what does it matter anyway.

        And made even harder by discrepancies between both tool versions. Exact phrase, local search, UK brings up the following:

        Old tool 1900
        New tool 1300
        Using "Ideas containing my search terms" on new tool 0

    I really don't like CHANGE !

    Much preffered the old SERP's + the previous Keyword tool.

    Why fix something that isn't broke???

    Especially if you are going to take a step backwards?

    Went back to the old version. I thought I was accidentally clicking something each time.

    Another Warrior posted this link directly to the old tool, and so far, it's still working:

    https://adwords.google.com/select/Ke...rceLegacy=true

    I'm not thrilled with the "new" one, either.

    You just need to log into adwords and it allows you to search normally. I agree it is annoying.

    They just need you to sign up for an adword account then you'll be free to use the google keyword tool, you are not obliged to use adwords.
