    Google has restricted the keyword planner to those with active Adword campaigns.

    Alternatives, anyone? Help a girl out. :( I use it frequently, and I'm a sad panda right now.

    What do you mean by "restrict"? What features are you trying to use but cannot use now? Need clarity before I can help you.

    This is the 2nd thread that I see that GKP is not working for a lot of people and I can't understand why, because it's working for me under 3 different Gmail accounts with no campaigns at all whatsoever. Hopefully it's a glitch, but otherwise those who are having problems might try using old Gmail accounts to access it, as it works perfectly fine that way.

    Well, it's "working" for me okay too but you guys better have a look at this: http://www.thesempost.com/googles-keyword-planner-now-combines-keywords-for-search-volume/

    Here's a screenshot someone shared of the marked difference in previous results (on the right) versus current ones:

    I noticed the same thing the plural forms of the keywords is the same value which is impossible in the real world of search.They are lumping keywords together.Don't 100 percent trust their keyword planner.

    I don't think combining search volumes for plural/non-plural versions will impact that much. Google has been returning results for "semantic" keyword for a while now. So matching the exact keyword no longer is the top priority, but rather context and content that resonate with the keyword is now higher priority.

    So if I search for "electric razor", it makes sense to return articles and offer pages for "electric razors" for me as well as "auto shaver" results.
