Is Bing keyword data of high value now?

Hello number ONE community. A question related to 100% not provided keywords situation. Bing still provides the keywords in its Webmaster Tools. Can you see any possibilities in that? Can this data be of high value now?
I have never used Bing tools so I am interested to hear your views on it. Thanks a lot for the comments.

  • Tim Capper: It definatly gives you an idea on keywords and pages visited which can be translated across to G. I would say it is more or less the same, but of course visits from a keyword may be different to a page or not at all because of course the rankings for a term may differ. But in the world of (not provided) any indications to give an idea what terms provided traffic to pages is better then nothing

  • Slawomir Zdunek: + ;Yes, of course.
  • Darren Champen: Back in the old days, we'd create a multiplier and get an estimate from that. Personally, I'm not worried about this change. I believe the social data provides popular terms as well as sentiment. Both essential to creating compelling content.
