Recently, the Forums at WebmasterWorld and Search Engine Watch have webmasters complaining about a bug in the Google's Keyword Tool. The complaint is that broad terms are being included in the AdWords keyword tool search.

In response to these complaints, the official representative of Google AdWords said:

“A bit of asking around tells me that what is being reported here is a technical issues known to the engineering folks, and not an intentional change.

As you will probably imagine, Engineering aims to resolve things as quickly as possible.

I am sorry to say that I don't have an estimated time-to-resolution – and I will exercise my better judgment and not even guess. I will, however, happily update this thread a couple of hours after I've heard that it is resolved.

In the meantime, please accept both my apology for the inconvenience, and my thanks in advance for your patience.”

However, the good news is that the problem has been fixed a few hours ago. Even though, there are still some finishing touches required, which will be handled by early next week.

The AdWords team requests everyone to tolerate these issues for a while.
