Insane.... Hope its not a glitch and they keep it that way, its so helpful!

my tests show that the numbers are relative at best.

Relative is good enough though, if it's consistently accurate. In your experience was the relativity accurate for the most part?

Just a heads up. When the results first load, some data columns are there but hidden. This includes trends by month, average CPC -- all the data types that are listed on the Help Page at https://adwords.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=25148&ctx=tltp

Lts95: the results varied but were all about a 1/4 of the actual impression numbers. I only test high volume keywords and brand terms that we consistantly purchased. Results varied by broad, exact, and phrase but they were all quite low.. in all cases below 50%. However, as I mentioned in the first post it appears that the numbers are relative to one another; similar to keyword discovery any of the other tools.

This is now about as close to a useful keyword tool as we have in the UK.
Wordtracker and the others are WAY off target with UK search numbers.

It might not be perfect, but we're one step closer!

As much as I'm happy the tool is available, I'm still getting some gaping omissions of some very high volume phrases... where the tool is even returning misspellings of the phrase, just not the phrase itself.

The tool also apparently doesn't like you to dig very deeply. When I try to refine some phrases, like adding an extra modifier to the end, I'll get the 403 forbidden response... "your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application...." This is after I make 2 or 3 requests... we're not talk a large volume of queries at all... nor am I making them very fast.

I'm seing this too - I did 3 or 4 searches and Google is now blocking me from using the tool. Weird thing - I can not access my Adwords account either (getting the same "your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application...." message).

Any way to access this with a (paid-for if need be) API?

That's a great find Tedster. Thanks for sharing.

Even I will like to have an API for it to integrate it with our systems.

A note for reference that the "gaping omissions of some very high volume phrases" that I mentioned above has now been fixed. The error got worse before it got better, but it turned out to be a "known issue" at Google which got fixed today. See this thread...

Insufficient Data in all searches today?
Is keyword suggestion tool in adwords working?
