Google Tweaking AdWords Keyword Tool To Accommodate 2500 Terms

Google is working on an update to the AdWords Keyword Tool that will allow marketers to input 2500 keywords — up from just 100 — to generate new keyword ideas.

The folks at Hobo SEO in the UK spotted that this change is in the works, noting that they were able to input a lot more words in the search box. However, Google isn’t finished with the enhancement yet, and, currently, the tool still only uses the first 100 words to generate results.

A Google spokesperson confirmed that the change is coming, but wouldn’t commit to a release date.

    They just updated it not 10 minutes ago. I was in the middle of looking for new keywords and it forced me to reload the page for the new version.
