I haven't had time to look into this HUGE change this week yet.

Just checking to see what everyone has heard and/or is using moving forward.

BTW - I'm an ex-Wordtracker user but not a big fan.

How or will tools like MS LTP etc be affected?

Google is a business. They want more money thus leaving one of a few options. One of which is to utilize their paid search. The paid data is not crippled. Many use AdWords to conduct their kw research. It's factual data not suggestive like other kw tools. I haven't looked into it much either but thanks for starting a thread.

I'd be lying if I said I checked Bing recently but I'm curious to know if/how they can be leveraged. You could compare your past analytics data in Google and compare it to see if there are any similarities and start utilizing these tools more. The sample data won't be nearly as large but you never know.

Or, start throwing spaghetti on the wall and see what
