The keyword planner is a tool to assist active advertisers in their research prior  to launching a campaign;

Thus, Google assumes that a campaign will be launched at some point and hence requires to provide a billing method to use the tool;

If you need a tool  for a "general purpose"  query research -  use the free Google trends.

Hi there,


Here's an article on how to the Keyword Planner Tool.


Remember: You'll have to submit your billing details (though you'll not be charged unless your campaign goes live) to use this tool.
