Noticed Any Change On Google Keyword Planner?

    Hey.

    I was searching for keywords with Long Tail Pro, and started to notice that all the keyword results looked the same, like:

    keyword 1 - Local Searches 10,100
    keyword 2 - Local Searches 10,100
    keyword 3 - Local Searches 10,100

    and so on.... some of them even had more local searches then global searches.

    So i went directly to google keyword planner, and search for those terms, and gives me no accuracy at all, showing this message too

    "This page shows ranges for search volumes. For a more detailed view, set up and run a campaign"

    1) Anyone noticed that change too?
    2) If so, what can we do to get accurate keyword results without spending money on adwords campaigns?

    Would really appreciate some alternative perspectives to this, because i'm not feeling like giving tons of money to google just to get accurate keywords results. Thank you

    This started happening to me yesterday. I found this today:
    Source:
    Code:
    https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/AdWords-Announcements/Updates-to-the-Keyword-Planner-Tool/td-p/601960#
    Really vague message, and says nothing about how much "lower monthly spend" is. I don't understand how they can think that people will start a campaign if they don't have accurate keyword research first to calculate ROI.

    Is this an attempt to force SEOs to start using PPC? Don't be evil...

    Are there any decent paid or unpaid alternatives to the Google Keyword Planner? Any users of SEMRush, Ahrefs, Moz, etc, can recommend one of them?

    I don't think you guys get it. Last year, Google released RankBrain algorithm that basically combine and group similar keywords together. That means in the future, in order to rank, you will need to use a lot of similar keywords in your post to indicate that you are not trying to match keyword. I just found out about RankBrain.me, the only tool that is cheap and provide exact Google search volume with RankBrain algo replications. Keyword matching is history now

    There is a way around this, and i found it today in another thread. Its basically setting up another adwords account and accessing your original from an adwords manager account. I will find the link and post

    Sorry to tell you this. I am not sure if you try it. But I already tried that. I have an MCC account linked with 3 other adwords account. It worked at the beginning and then Google seems to know and stop showing the search volume. So go for it while it lasts.

    is it an accident? this is retarded, and if it is a change, it will probably be removed.

    You wish. Google does this to force you pay for Adwords to do SEO. There is no way they are going reverse this.
