Google To Drop Old Keyword Tool By End Of Month
The Google AdWords Blog announced they are taking the new keyword tool out of beta. The “new” keyword tool has been in beta since September 2009 and we ultimately knew Google would phase out the old keyword tool in exchange for this new one. Now we know when.
Google said the old keyword tool, which is currently accessible over here, will be available throughout the end of this month. September 1, 2010, the old keyword tool will begin redirecting to the new keyword tool. Google promises to update us when the switch over happens and also promises to drop the “beta” label from the existing tool.
Google added and removed some features based on early feedback. For example, Google now gives a way to remove duplicate keywords, add negative keywords and some other additions.
