Getting the Most Out of Google's New Keyword Planner

Google's old Keyword Planner is going away. We'll help you to get comfortable with the new version.

We all are uncomfortable with change, and a big one is coming up. Google has announced that the traditional AdWords interface, and the traditional keyword planner, will be going away at the end of 2018.

The new keyword planner is quite a bit different, but there are some nice new capabilities that aren't that obvious.

Search Engine Academy certified master trainer (and keyword research fanatic) Ross Barefoot shows you what features are missing, what new features have been added, and how to get the most out of the new Google keyword planner.
