    I noticed this last Wednesday, and had a sinking feeling that its disappearance might be part of the Google Facelift. I truly hope they intend to bring it back, as it was a valuable tool.

    This is terrible news if the loss is permanent. The WonderWheel was a great way to demo search strategies and relationship between/among categories. I don’t understand why Google removes this like this: surely the cost of keeping them up and linked is trivial.

    Kartoo.com was out way before Google’s WonderWheel, so there is still an option for using relational search engines.

    I am having a hard time understanding many of the changes Google has been making as of late. The WonderWheel was one of the most useful tools they offered. If it is gone for good it is a huge loss. I will mourn it like a favorite pet or something.

    I didn’t use Google’s Wonder Wheel a lot, but I really liked it. I know there are other tools available, but I really liked the keyword relationships displayed graphically.

    I agree: This is a terrible news! We should ask Google to bring back Wonder Wheel!

    I’m going to head right down there and chain myself to the front doors of the lobby till they bring it back! Ok… maybe not, but I’m pretty sad to see it go, it was a brilliant tool for helping clients understand keywords and their role in SEO/PPC etc.

    I am in mourning over this tool (especially since I have a book coming out this month where I mention it as a tool – DOH!) But let’s not forget the original cloud tag search tool Quintura.com which still is alive and kicking http://quintura.com/ (you have to click on “older version” on the top nav though)

    So it has been awhile since I have written an article that required me to do additional keyword research, until today… I headed over to the Google Wonder Wheel to generate some data and ideas. Hmmm… I don’t see it, nope not there, or there… Aye… Where is it??? (A sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach hits and I think, “Oh no don’t tell me they got rid of this awesome tool with the ‘new’ Google.”)

    I immediately type in ‘where is google wonder wheel’ and find this blog post which assures me that my sinking feeling was justified.

    Why do Google and so many others take away their most valuable tools? It’s counterproductive. Praying they bring it back, but not holding my breath either! Shame on you Google! It’s time to search for alternatives…

    I just tried to access Wonder Wheel to no avail, and sadly found out that Google has taken it off line.
