Google Keyword Tool - VERY INACCURATE - why?

    In June, Google AdWords turned off access to the Keyword Planner tool for those who did not have an active AdWords campaign running. However, they later backed away from this, and instead said it was a “technical issue” affecting some accounts. But many saw it as writing on the wall that Google would begin to restrict or throttle information unless there was an active campaign within the account.

    Instead of detailed information, Google is instead only showing a number range for the average monthly searches, with a notice at the top that states “This page shows ranges for search volumes. For a more detailed view, set up and run a campaign.”

    I also tried to access it through a second account that had never used AdWords previously, and I was unable to access it unless I completed the set up steps, which include setting up a campaign, adding a budget AND adding a credit card number. I could not get access to it unless I completed those steps. Even when clicking on the keyword planner link in the search results, I was redirected to the AdWords homepage to login, or if I was logged in, I was redirected to the setup process again.


    Can somebody help me please?!

    Is this how it works now?

    Is there any other free tool as good as this one was?


    Thanks in Advance!! ;)

    PS: if you are clever enough you can find a way to get a 30 day pro trial .

    I see several dollar prices for keywords with no ads showing for my region.... I honestly don't know how Adwords' auction works when there are no bidders, the prices are absolutely out of touch with reality.
