Now You Are in Trouble: Google Blocks All Referrers Data Also in Google WebMaster Tools

Now You Are in Trouble: Google Blocks All Referrers Data Also in Google WebMaster Tools | Internet Marketing Strategy 2.0 | Scoop.it
Last week, Google moved to send all searches through Google SSL Search, setting up the ultimate end of keyword data passed along via referrers non-advertisers.
Robin Good's insight:


Danny Sullivan reports today on Search Engine Land: "Last week, Google moved to send all searches through Google SSL Search, setting up the ultimate end of keyword data passed along via referrers non-advertisers. Now, Google’s official alternative channel for this information — Google Webmaster Tools — has also stopped sharing the data, most likely due to a bug."


You can check for yourself: go to your Google Webmaster Tools and see if you see any referrer data past Sept.25th. I don't. What about you?



Very worrisome for whoever relies a lot on keyword data. 8/10

5 Alternative and Little-Known Keyword Research Tools | Bluglass

5 Alternative and Little-Known Keyword Research Tools | Bluglass | Internet Marketing Strategy 2.0 | Scoop.it

Destiny Cushing, a buddying SEO blogger at Blueglass.com has put together a valuable showcase of five different and little known keyword research tools.


Beyond Google’s Keyword Tool, Wordtracker, SEO Book’s Keyword Suggestion Tool, and Keyword Discovery there is indeed a little universe of alternative possibilities.


And among the many, these five were selected on the basis of three very specific requirements:


a) the tool has to be free


b) it must be immediately useful, and


c) it must provide something you can’t get with the full-service tools (they offer additional insights and ways to manipulate your keyword lists that the other tools don’t offer. And for free.)


Here their names.

See if you have heard about them before diving in:

  • Übersuggest – Alphabet Keyword Suggestion Tool
     
  • Soovle – Keyword Suggestions from 7 Search Engines
     
  • Ranks.nl – Keyword Combiner
     
  • Yahoo! Search Clues – Trend Analysis
     
  • YouTube Keyword Tool

Superuseful. 9/10.
