Google Keyword Planner has replaced the much loved keyword tool. Here I’ll show you how to use it for your research. Although the planner is not the same as the old tool, it still a very useful tool for bloggers and website owners who take ethical search engine optimization seriously.
Keyword (KW) research is essential for bloggers because it allows you an insight into Google searches and the different terms and phrases people are searching for. It affords you an educated decision on how to structure your blog and your blog posts, related to search terms and phrases people look for.
The KW tool was one of the oldest and likely the most used and useful search applications (apart from Google Search) offered by Google. Many online marketers were dreading the eventual demise of it, as KW research represents the cornerstone of niche blog research and development.
Learning how to utilize keyword planner for your research will give you an advantage over bloggers who neglect this task. Although the new keyword planner does not offer all the functions of the old app, it still an excellent free app to use. I found a video that shows you how it is done.

I was able to find a video on YouTube that shows a quick overview of how to use keyword planner for KW research. It is not very long. Although it is bit dated as the planner’s dashboards is continuously improved upon, it will give you an excellent visual overview.
When keyword planner was first introduced, I was not not very enamored with it, now I got used to it and came to love it. I use it almost every time I write a post to get word ideas. The important word is “ideas”. I never abuse keywords and although using them on your blog is important from the point of view of search engine optimization, my posts are primarily written with the reader in mind.
Go ahead and try this new tool. Use it, but never abuse it!
