These new additions by Google bring some enhancement to the Keyword Planner tool giving deeper insight into data over time to the advertisers. With each new addition the visual components are more enhanced and making data more meaningful at a glance. The tool also gives information to the web publishers about what internet users are looking for on the internet.

 Let’s talk about what these nine new features include.
  • Specify a time period

This feature provides the keyword suggestions and estimated volume around the specified time period. In addition to this a graph also provided which displays a visual of changes over time. If you move a mouse pointer over one of the bar, it will give you the details of the corresponding month.


  •  Period of time comparison

Visual graph display the time period comparisons which we can also perform. This comparison can be made by choosing one of the options i.e. Previous period, Same period last year, and Custom.

Previous period: If this option is selected then it means the set range (for example April 2014 to June 2014) will compare and displays the result for the previous time period i.e. January 2014 to March 2014.

Same period last year: The set range (April 2014 to June 2014) will compare and displays the result for the same period in last year i.e. April 2013 to June 2013.

Custom: This will allow you create your own custom comparison. For easy visuals Google will graph the comparison time if the comparison is set ON.

  •  Visualizing Mobile Trends

In this, a graph is displayed which shows the comparison between the mobile device (green) and all types of devices (blue). Placing the cursor over the bar gives you the volume of the corresponding month.

  • By comparing two periods look at the relative and absolute changes for keyword’s volume and each ad group

This is used to understand what keywords are on the decline or in-flux and this can be done by reviewing total change or percent change.
  • Flexible time periods

Taylor Swift Unhappy After Princeton Review Misquotes Her Lyrics in SAT Test Paper

The popstar of several multi-million dollar hits and multi-million dollarlegs, Taylor Swift is not one to be messed with. The Princeton Review found that out the hard way after they published Tay Tay's lyrics as an example of bad grammar on a SAT practice test.

To be fair, they were trying to make the point that pop songs are where grammar goes to die and also cited other pop singers such as Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Kesha.

The fiercely loyal Tay Tay fans were not likely to let this go by and Tumblr user Nava who was apparently having ' an amazing time studying for SAT' when she spotted this, posted a snapshot with the caption, " .... it isn't a pop song it's a country pop song so take that Princeton review Taylor is grammar queen so shhhhhh.."

Queen Jessica Lange confirmed at tonight's PaleyFest panel that she will not return for American Horror Story: Hotel.

"Yes, I'm done," she told the audience, "We've had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I've loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in new orleans, the stories, everything."

While that is definitely not music to our ears, the panel did offer up a few happier Hotel tidbits, like the fact that White Collar star Matt Bomer will be joining the show for the season, along with 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson. Both Bomer and Jackson are pretty familiar with Ryan Murphy and co, having both guest starred on Glee. Bomer also appeared in American Horror Story: Freak Show as a prostitute who was brutally murdered by Dandy (Finn Witrock).
