Trouble Accessing Keyword Planner

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello, I just created an Adwords Express account. I am having trouble accessing the Keyword Planner, however.

 

I can't find an option to use the Keyword planner, and when I go to the link via a Google search I'm simply taken back to my Adwords Express account.

 

Is this because I have an Express rather than a regular Adwords account? Or do I need to wait until my ad gets approved (I just created it now) before I can access the Keyword Planner.

 

Thanks for your help

Hi Cody M,

 

AdWords Express manages keywords by itself automatically and hence the feature isn't available in the tool. I'd suggest creating an AdWords account if you're looking for more control and flexibility. Specially for Keyword Planner.

Hi,

 

Looks like we cannot access the Google Adwords Keyword Planner anymore without having a paid campaign active.

Can you please confirm this?

 

Thanks

From what I've seen, having an account with active billing details is sufficient to access the keyword planner. Active campaign is not mandatory as far as I've seen.
