Of course we use these tools to get rough ideas, but even if some advertisers asked for the option to only have Google.com results the truth is that many of use also like to see the total numbers, including search partners, so why not giving us that, as an option, even with a big disclaimer?
Without those search partners data you don't loose only numbers, you loose a lot of quality related phrases because the new tool says that some of them have 0 or xx searches, when I know that they have much more than that... (checking my own referral stats).
Google, you had the best keyword tool in my opinion, because most others fail for non-english keywords. Please don't kill one of the bests tools you have. I ask this as an advertiser and as a publisher that wants to continue providing quality content for search phrases that are really being used. I don't have any complaint about the old GAKT. Some numbers seem overestimated? I learned how to read them. But now I'm loosing precious related phrases...
