    And I assume Google are still claiming they are not trying to encourage people towards PPC? I think requiring a logged in session to Adwords says that this is where Google wants people to be. What’s your take, SEL?

    And then they say it’s not about PPC at all. lol

    Isn’t that because they are going towards Google Enhanced Campaigns that require dedicated usage within mobile platforms? They are forcing the value of desktop clicks towards mobile inventories. Moving to a sign-in model creates a ‘buy-in’ audience for these changes. What better place to sell a new sandwich loaf than at the deli counter.

    Michelle, I’m totally on your side with this one. I was excited to head about the Keyword Planner tool but I’m really not liking it at all. Not having the choice of narrowing keywords down to phrase or exact match makes the tool almost totally useless to me. Having more specific regional targeting is great but it doesn’t make up for the features that they dropped. I just hope that this is a work in progress! http://www.seosuccessmelbourne.com

    There is a way to change to Match Type. Look at top right section.

  • Chetan Sharma

    That option is useless, even if you change it the numbers dont change

    No doubt Google always tries to facilitate in one way or the other but restriction will encourage them to switch towards other services providers. Previously one could use Google external keyword tool without login both for SEO and for PPC but now, even if someone needs to analyse keywords for SEO only, it will have to create login for PPC and then use new keywords research tool.
