    Hi guys

    Im unable to access accurate search volume data anymore since Google restricted search volume to accounts running a PPC campaign.

    How can i get around this either in GKP (without having to run an active PPC campaign) or by using another tool to do keyword research and get search volume data?

    Thanks

    Hello..

    which tools are you using to find the search volume?

    You cant get accurate search volume on SEMRUSH and Keyword revealer but can get accurate search volume and competition in Long tail platinum.

    Still i can get accurate search volume from GKP. There is no free tool to get correct search volumes for bulk keywords.

    Looks like they are trying to get the SEO community to have some form of an active PPC campaign running.

    Earlier this month, some marketers noticed that Keyword Planner data was displaying ranged data instead of precise search volume. The ranges were wildly broad, with results like “100K–1M” and “1M+.” Some wondered whether this was merely a glitch or if this was a calculated measure that favored higher-spending AdWords advertisers. Google confirmed the latter;
    According to Google, “most” advertisers will see Keyword Planner data as usual. But AdWords users with a “lower monthly spend” could see limited data in the planner. How limited? Very. The ranges that Google will provide for those with small (or no) spends makes the tool almost useless.

    Adwords api for test token account returns 'dump' data like most of the cheap tools using it . You will need developer token for 100% acurate data.

    Longtail Pro is now TOAST as well. All I'm getting for the volume is the range 100-1K, 1K-10K, etc..

    I don't really need or use the volume (or believe it really) so it's not "that" big of a deal. It's just fucking petty of those DOUCHE BAGS at google to not release it at all now. Eventually people will tire of that BS and move elsewhere. FB bends over backwards to give you ALL KINDS of data to filter your ads. Meanwhile google is wants you to buy some expensive champagne before they let you see the menu. Fucking MORONS!!

    Unless someone is using a kwd tool with their own account that spends enough money, or one with developer access maybe, I can't see how any of them will be able to pull the data anymore. I was working just fine with Longtail Pro yesterday. Down the shitter today.

    Google...What a Fucking Bitch She is!!!

    Install the free browser add-on from https://keywordkeg.com/google-search-volume.html

    Once you have the browser add-on installed and the api key activated, click on the "K" icon in the browser bar and go to "Get metrics for my keywords". You can now post as many keywords as you want and get accurate search volume data for it.

    Yes, Google keyword planner doesn't give their full volume data anymore. Why not try FreshKey? Though it's not free, I think it's far better than Google keyword planner that you are currently using now.

    For those seeking for solution, i thought someone has already recommended Longtail Pro Platium?
    Except you're looking for free tools though.

    Interesting thread, read all replies and would love to know more.
