    SEO advice for Google


    Dear Google,

    I have noticed that the Google AdWords Keyword Tool is no longer in the Google search results for Google AdWords Keyword Tool.

    Previously, when I searched for the phrase, this URL came up:
    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    but since you moved the tool to this new URL:
    https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeting/Explorer?__u=1000000000&__c=1000000000&stylePrefOv erride=2#search.none!ideaType=KEYWORD&requestType= IDEAS
    -- it is no longer anywhere in the results for itself.

    I was puzzled by this and decided to figure out the cause. It took all of a minute, I ran a server headers check on the old URL:

    #1 Server Response: https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily

    Dear Google, please change that redirect to a 301. A 302 redirect is not SEO friendly and does not transfer Google rankings to a new URL!

    Sincerely,

    Actually, regional results seem to vary. It comes up first in the UK.

    You are wrong, buddy, the KGB does not exist any more. We have all turned into SEO professionals!
