Q: When I use WooRank I get a list of keywords used for clicks to my site. Will this continue or disappear with Googles changes?
My prediction is that yes, over time, this data will either detiorate or go away. WooRank and the other paid providers have no ‘magic bullet’ to gain access to the actual keyword data inputted into Google. They, like you and I, can only extrapolate making assumptions from other available data sets (e.g., Yahoo/Bing or historical data).
The reality is that Google easily controls 60% or more of search traffic, although in my experience for most of our SEO clients, Google has easily a 90% search share. Now that Google is no longer transmitting this data to anyone, the reality is that ALL the paid tools for keyword discovery are basically forced to do some sort of extrapolation, as I explained in the Webinar on ‘keyword not provided.’
Either they are extrapolating the Yahoo / Bing data, as I showed in the webinar, or they are using other tactics, such as using past data. But no one to my knowledge has any secret ‘inside’ way of obtaining the actual Google data. So the first point, is that the paid tools don’t have any magic way of getting better data.
