    Thanks for the update Matt! I’d love to know your own opinion – after playing with the combined toolset, do you like it?

    For myself, and it may be that I’m overly-familiar with Insights For Search, I find the left-side controls cumbersome and difficult. For instance, I have to keep scrolling the page up and down to compensate as the Worldwide menu expands over and over in multiple drop-downs.

    I think some user interface improvements would help, but I like the idea of the combo.

    Darn! Was working on a blog post about using “Insights” for Local keyword research.
    All the city based features are gone now that I was going to blog
    about. All the features for LOCAL I thought were so helpful on many levels are gone now.

    Or at least on my initial couple trial runs. Maybe I’m missing something?

    What I liked before is that you could GEO locate your search. So for instance if you compared “Personal Injury Attorney” and “Personal Injury Lawyer” and set your location to LA, you’d see the former gets more searches. BUT if you set location to New York, you’d see that more people there search for “Personal Injury Lawyer”.

    I don’t see a way to do that now. Does anyone else? Am I missing something?

    Still there for me. Just click the “Worldwide” button on the left, then drill down to whatever geo area you want.

  • Matt McGee

    I would agree with that assessment on the usability.

    Matt that only lets me select country. Can’t get to city >> state. Here is screen shot of the old one drilling all the way down to city. http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/9/24617174967-orig.png

    Haha, thought I was losing my mind this morning! Thanks for the post!

    I’m familiar with the old one, Linda — used it regularly. The new one offers the same drilldowns, at least for me. Can get down to city levels just like before. You have to keep clicking. The UI isn’t all that great, but it’s there.

    Thanks Matt, finally got there. Poor UI and don’t like the layout for city KW data as much as the way it displayed in that screenshot. But it works. Thanks.

    I have the same problem at the other end of the scale – I want to compare all countries in one table. Can’t do that now – have to click on each country one after another, is that right?
