Today I noticed that the beta version of Google Adwords Keyword Planner is now the default interface. But the keyword planner really sucks.
- No categories anymore
- No comparison between periods
- ...

Is there a way to compare month A with month B like in the old interface?

Btw I don't use the keyword planner for an adwords campagne. I use it as a marketing tool.

I found the almost hidden link to the old interface. I hope the new one will get the missed features and it's just beta testing. Google has to provide more information before launching a new default interface!

Less is more! The new AdWords interface itself shows far less data, and the scroll bar at the bottom, oy vey.

Then again, who needs humans to read, or even see, data?

who needs humans


So far, my own experiences with automated "smart bidding" have been a bust.

Buckworks: Report from a mutual friend of ours and your occasional shopping buddy ;-)

Every time she turns on automated bidding (or almost any Google automation), performance drops.

But it saves you time... you get to choose then, save time, or save money.

I like how they call it Smart Bidding.
I guess if you turn it off, it's Idiot Bidding. Doh! I'm an idiot (sometimes).
