I've seen similar posts regarding the ability to leverage the keyword planner tools WITHOUT creating a live campaign. However, I'm experienced a forced funnel, requiring me to create an ad and turn it live. Screenshot of my top navigation bar included in this post.

 

Any guidance is extremely appreciated.

 

 

Kind regards,

 

MMM

Hi MMM,


This is the new reality since late last year - you need an active account, with billing. And you won't see the full data until you mean an activity threshold, which I believe is quite low but will still cost you.

Rob,

 

Thanks so much for your quick reply. My website (manifestingmtnmiracles.com) is in its' infancy, and (having been an ad agency guy for ten years) I know it would not be appropriate to invest in paid activities (yet!). In your research and experience, have you found any free (or close to) tools that you'd recommend for conducting keyword analysis? Open to suggestions, and grateful for any help you can provide.
