Hi,

 

I'm just trying to find my way around adwords and using it more as a learning opportunity at the moment.  I want to play around with the keyword tool.  Do I have to pay for using adwords or is there a way for me to experment without payment.

Hello and welcome,

 

In order to use Google Keyword tool, you don't need to pay. It's a free tool. You can simply use the external Keyword Tool following this link:

 

https://adwords.google.com/o/KeywordTool

 

Then if you have a google account, click on sign in on top right side and it will show you the customize results depending upon  your account settings.

 

But yes if want to run Ads on Google, it can be done using Google Adwords which is a paid advertising platform.

 

Hope that helps!

this is a rather old thread; the keyword-tool

has been replaced by the keyword-planner.


(1) if the account has been fully created and the entire
sign-up flow has been completed, including billing details
then, the tools-tab should appear atop the main menu-bar,
aside home, campaigns, and opportunities; keyword-planner
will then be under the tools-tab:

https://support.google.com/adwords/topic/3119071
https://support.google.com/adwords/topic/3119073

note that if my-client-center is being used then, a client-account must
be created (linked) and selected first, before the tools-tab will appear.

if the sign-up flow also requests a campaign then,
simply create and immediately pause the campaign.

important: be absolutely certain that all campaigns are paused;
otherwise, the advertising clicks will be continually charged --
no matter how well or poorly designed the campaigns may be.

(2) however, if the account has been fully created and the entire
sign-up flow has been completed, including billing, but the issue
still exists then, a support specialist may be contacted directly:
https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/8206
https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1385067

(3) otherwise, keyword-planner is mainly for paid advertising campaign
research -- not for general keyword or search-term related analysis;
google-trends is available for general keyword and search-term analysis
and currently requires no billing information and no account whatsoever.
