    I know that Adwords keyword planner was free for some time, but that is past.
    I googled some free alternative tools, but all those "free" tools provide only the keywords, but not how much traffic they got and what the competition for that one is, and if it's easy to rank etc. . (to get that-->pay)

    So i was hoping some fellow sir's could help me out and provide some usefull links/tools which does that :)

    Thanks

    Why would the Google Keyword Planner not be free anymore?!

    I think you tried signing up for their API which isn't free. As everyone mentioned, the planner is free.

    If you want to use Keyword planner, use your cc and then don't start a campaign or pause it if you started it?

    Google Keyword Planner is free; what happened is when you were signing up for an account, you probably clicked "Continue" instead of "Skip the guided setup" (as show below):

    GKP.jpg

    This has happened to me as well before, and from what I've experienced there's no way to go back and "skip the step" once you've started the process of creating an ads campaign.

    You're either going to have to continue with the creation procedure and then cancel said campaign (as someone suggested earlier, though haven't tried this), or you can make a new Google account and use it specifically for KP.

    Best regards,
    Saroekin

    Many alternatives are available in online. But most of them provide limited service only

    To dig deeper, use one of the free trials such as Keyword Revealer, so check on the keywords you're interested in from Googles tool.
