We all know why this was done specifically to organic results. Google does not like SEOs. It's plain and simple. I happen to know a couple of former G engineers who told me this is the case; although, they say the G won't publicly admit it. They spend millions per year to undo the things that SEOs do to exploit their algo. Why do you think MC is at all the conferences and on the SEO forums? To learn what we do and counter it.
Giving us less data will help diminish SEO. Try getting that increase in budget or your project approved as an SEO without some conversion or traffic data for your targeted keywords. It's hard enough now even with the data, much less without it.
