The YouTube Keyword Tool Has gone Missing.
In the past few days many people have noticed that the YouTube Keyword Tool has gone missing, and the the Link to the Keyword tool, now directs them to a 404 "page not found "error page.
Considering I run a number of YouTube Channels and have talked about YouTube Success in previous posts, and do use the YouTube Keyword Tool on occasion, this was a big surprise for me....
Here's a screenshot for the search term "YouTube Keyword Tool" and as you can see it has vanished from the search results all together.
YouTube Keyword Tool Alternatives - Free Ad-words Display Planner..
The Only free YouTube Keyword Tool Alternative that gives you some decent data, is the Google Adwords Display Planner.
(1). Just enter a keyword or keywords.
(2). Then go to the filters tab on your left(looking at your screen)
Click on Filters - Äd Formats and Sizes.
You will then be presented with this popup screen shown below.
Tick the "Video "box and 'un - Tick' the other boxes.
You can choose Video from there. Just tick the Formats box. (shown above)
Authors note. Even though this tool is used for Google Adwords Advertisers who are looking to promote their product or service, you can still use the tool to get data about YouTube / Video keyword search Terms. The only issue is whether this is only for the Google Search engine....which it probably is anyway!
(4). You will already see the following Video Keyword data shown in the screen for your chosen keyword search terms.
The big problem as I have already mentioned, is that these results are more than likely for the Google search engine and not for the YouTube Search Engine. So, the data would be very useful if you wished to rank your YouTube Videos in the Google search engine search results...though, not all that Good for getting YouTube video Keyword search data......
I already use a number of other Keyword and SEO tools like Market Samurai for websites and YouTube Channels,......
To be very honest with you, many Keyword and SEO tools for ranking websites and for YouTube videos, are often nearly totally useless.
I have tried plenty of Keyword SEO Tools, and only a few are worth the money you pay....
The old YouTube Keyword Tool was quite handy when it actually worked...
The only problem with the "now extinct" YouTube Keyword Tool , was that you were often missing a lot of data....
Sometimes the old YouTube Keyword tool it worked really well, and other times it just worked well enough to get some YouTube search volume keyword data.
Did you know that the YouTube Keyword tool is gone and won't be coming back?
Have you got any ideas for a YouTube Keyword tool alternative that can do the job?
