Keyword planner doesn't work when I select a region outside US

Hi,

 

I am hoping that someone could shed some lights to my long hours of failed attempting and searching. I live in HK and I would like to use the keyword planner to help me estimate traffics for a list of keywords, depending on my budget (that's what the tool for, right?)

 

I input all my keywords and click 'Estimate', the result shows only estimated impressions & avg. positions, but not the clicks, and this also causes the daily cost to show zero.

 

It works (results showing numbers for estimated clicks) when I tried to include US into my target location. Could it be the tool not working in my region yet?

 

Please help, thanks!

 

Regards,

Sarah

Hi,

Update: I added a keyword in Chinese (traditional), the results started to show some clicks. I removed all English keywords and that doesn't change the results.

Why doesn't the keyword planner estimates English keywords?

Keyword Planner should work with all languages. Not sure what might be happening in your case. Can you check that the the language settings on the left hand side are correct? Is it showing information for all languages except for English?
