    I'm a newbie, so excuse if this is a dumb question. Google keyword planner isn't free anymore, so what's the next best thing? Both paid and free.

    I think Google keyword planner is still free and there are no changes. So Google keyword planner still is my first choice .

    This is confusing... when I try to go there it doesn't let me go into Keyword planner until you put in a minimum payment for adwords

    It's free, but they expect you to start a campaign. You can still get around that.

    You might want to try Semalt as another alternative.

    That's the traffic estimation tool you're using. Just add any number, it'll calculate how much traffic you'll get for your budget.

    It's defiantly still free, you just need to start a campaign though. You still don't have to pay, you can just cancel your payment method once you are in and no money will be taken out.
