AdWords Keyword Tool - Now With "Real" Numbers

Logging into my MCC this afternoon I was greeted with the following message:

"You can now see statistics on the approximate number of search queries matching your keywords. This data allows you to better plan your budget and pick keywords most likely to return quality leads, which in turn can help improve your ROI."

The link provided took me here.

After reading the help page I jumped over to the AdWords keyword tool and ran a sample query and sure enough, there are now actual numbers next to the graphs. Good stuff...should help, at least somewhat, in terms of forecasting and account structure.

Edit: others noticed this as well:

Google's Keyword Tool Now Showing Search Volume Numbers ~ SER
Google "Leaks" Search Volume ~ Tamar

Is this only for MCC members? I tried the Keyword Tool both logged in and out and saw no additional data in the report.

Tyler -

It's odd...this morning the numbers are no longer showing and the message that was in my account is gone. Typically those messages don't disappear until I dismiss them.

I've seen some reports claiming this was a "leak" but that doesn't make sense. If it was really a leak/accident I don't think there would have been an official announcement in my account. Maybe this is a feature they plan to release but someone just jumped the gun and pushed it live a little early?

I would also add that there is help/faq page built for this.

My guess is there must have been some problem with the roll out and we'll see the feature live again soon. Just a guess.

I agree - they will probably roll it out again real soon. I should have taken a screen shot of the message when I had a chance...I accidentally 'dismissed' it. :) Great find Jeremy!

I can see the numbers! Yay! And I didn't have to log on. Now I know I'm going to spend hours and hours researching keywords and their estimated stats...

But I'm intrigued: why can I see this and others cannot?

I found out this feature will be rolling out to everyone soon. If you can't see the numbers now you should be able to soon.
