I have already received several calls today from dealers worrying about Google hiding keyword information. There are two things to keep in mind about your SEO and Google’s recent change; don’t worry, and don't panic!
Google is always enhancing its services and increasing privacy for its users. Google has finally completely privatized searches, which means all searches are encrypted to prevent their keyword terms being read or monitored.
Out with the third party SEO Keyword tools like HubSpot, Wordtracker, and SEOMOZ. Oh well!
This change will also move the landscape the pros who rely on Google's AdSense and use of keywords as more results start showing up blank, with the infamous "not provided" string, concealing the travels of web users, and their advertising footprint. However, this is "old news" for marketers who have found ways around it by using Google Webmaster Tools. You can still use Bing for Keyword data!
Also, keep in mind that SEO marketers NEVER had access to local search data anyway and always had to extrapolate based on national searches.
