    Google did a major update to Google Webmaster Tools in the past 24 hours. The Top Search Queries report looks way different than before:

    It also looks like your traffic is going up too. :)

    Actually looks like Google Analytics.

    The update is a total mess. It turned something useful into useless.

    You can no longer see the ranking of your keywords and the ability to click on the hyperlink of the key word is gone which was also handy.

    Very poor effort Google it's a downgrade not a upgrade.

    Nuts you beat me too it :) just noticed the change and was going to post about it hehe.

    Looks really good, this will be the start of google eliminating the need for keyword position research tools fro your own site.

    Hey Christian, I am in Vancouver as well. Nice weather ey?

    Also thought I would add this. This new feature highlights what a load of BS google Adwords keyword tool is. WMT now shows exact impressions that match with analytics. Its about time and a great tool now to examin what the potential of your current keywords have.

    I found it a bit confusing at the beginning, but I think it just matter of "to be used to".
    In fact it shows the same data it was before, just added also visual part to it. Visual is good, as it shows the whole picture.
    - blue line represents impressions, not clicks/traffic. The orange line still the same.

    This is why such presentation, which has historical view, is good and it can point to some changes over time.

    What are you talking about before the update you could see the ranking of your keywords now all you can see is the click through and impressions but no Rankings. It was better before the update.

    Yes it has changed, however I am not able to check it by keyword search. Sometimes I think was this change necessary ?

    Your profile says you're in London ;) Whereabouts in Van are you?

    Way to contribute something useful to the thread topic moron. The thread is about a change to GWT, not about my use of the smudge tool in photoshop. Frankly I don't give a f**k if people know the keywords. I'm so happy that douchebags like you are on DP these days.

    Yes the update is worse now you can't check your keyword rankings. That was the most useful thing now you have to use third party trackers.

    Does Google actually have a clue ?

    I think they are still sorting things out, give it a few more weeks and then things should be clearer by then.

    Of course you can see keyword rankings. Just click on (+) and you will see the positions and pages. Right now it gives more info, just it will take time to learn how to read it.

    I can see the top 5 positions and then the rest then page 1 and 2 with a breakdown, if the traffic comes from images, web etc...
    So exactly as I said "this will be the start of google eliminating the need for keyword position research tools" I dont see how its not and Google has told webmaster for a long time they dont like them using tools to scan results.

    I didnt say it was 100% complete and done, take a deep breath and relax. LOL, no need to apologies I understand your probably stressed.

    Christian: Yes I was in London when I first created my profile many years back. I live on English Bay, downtown now :) You?

    I'm pretty sure there's bugs in the new coding of these reports. The clickthroughs aren't tracking very well as far as I can tell. I.e. for one of my sites it's saying I got 60 clicks in the past month, but I I go to google analytics it shows that I get about 60 clicks/week from search. So there's still some bugs in the reports I think.

    I'm actually out in Coquitlam, near the Port Mann bridge. But I work in an office downtown near the corner of Burrard and Thurlow.
