    I'm a complete newb to SEO so I don't know whether I'm doing something wrong, but Keyword Planner is giving me only monthly estimates, it says, for ex., 100-1k searches avg. instead of giving me the exact number, as, I BELIEVE, it is supposed to.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    EDIT: Sorry, I just saw it is saying "This page shows ranges for search volumes. For a more detailed view, set up and run a campaign."

    Does that mean I have to actually let some ads run before it gives me the exact #s?

    Yes , that's exactly what it means , you have to pay ads surpassing a certain sum to begin to see the full range , it also means that Google is becoming a greedy company

    Google made this in 2016.

    You will get exact number volume from your AdWords account (Keyword Planner) only when you create a campaign for GSN, GDN, YouTube or any other ads.
    I mean you have to pay Google for ads in Adwords accounts.
    Then Google is ready to show you the more keywords with exact volume.

    Happy Journey! :)

    Yes it is, it's a handy tool. Right click over a keyword and you can get the results that way too.

    What about apps that give SEO difficulty (assesment of how much competition)? Any free ones?
