As many of you know Keyword tool will be given the boot in favor of the keyword planner.

This has me worried...and I suspect a corporate technique of funneling hiding lucrative phrases to create artificial scarcity for money making terms and to throw off SEO users using these tools.

What I'm seeing right off the bat is that the stats don't match.

eg I search for xyz widgets.

In the new system it shows 75k per month for keyword ideas. Then for ad group ideas I get a keywords like at 174k and the phrase(25) for 60k.

On the old system I get for broad/exact/phrase:


It gives the same for global and monthly.

Why the huge discrepancies? Anybody else worried about this new tool?
