Adwords Keyword Planner "Update"

Hi AdWords Community,


As of this week, previous technical issues affecting the Keyword Planner tool are now resolved. Some important updates to keep in mind:


  • Most advertisers will see search volume data in Keyword Planner as usual.
  • Advertisers with lower monthly spend may see a limited data view in the Keyword Planner. For example, you may see values such as 0, 1-100, 100-1K, 1K-10K, 10K-100K, 100K-1M, 1M+ in the average monthly searches column. In addition, other advertisers may trigger the limited data view by reaching a limit on the number of searches for search volume data (specifically, requests to our API).
  • Access to traffic forecast data will remain unchanged.


These changes will ensure that AdWords advertisers are able to get the data they need to optimize their accounts.

Yeah and don't forget the new "update" requires users to have an active AdWords account including inserting billing information. It helps adwords partners have more exclusive use of tools like this, but hurts small businesses who already are being relegated in this ever specializing field.
