    Has anyone else ever had the issue of google keyword planner telling you that you cant use their tool without campaigns running? I've used it for a couple of years with absolutely no problems until recently.

    It started telling me this about the campaigns so I started a campaign and just put it on pause. This gave me access to the tool but it still just tells me ranges like "1k - 10k" and shit like that, which really does me no good. Has anyone else had this issue? If so, how did you fix it?

    There was a workaround for this issue by using a managers account, unfortunately they have patched it. Your only option is to run an ad campaign or use other tools available out there.

    After 2 years of de-growth and loosing market share, they want to makeup from existing users.

    Makes sense I guess. At least I know the issue isn't just me now. Thanks for the feedback fellas.

    If you run the campaign, the data will go back to how it was before; pausing it will cause the GKP to show ranges.

    I think I found a "workaround", although I'm still testing it out. I'll more than likely post about it here on Black Hat World when I'm ready.
