I wanted to check something to day using google adwords keyword planner but was surprise to see that the tools is no longer free to webmasters but for active Adwords advertisers.
Here is the information i got when i tried checking something using adwords keyword planner which means that the keyword planner is no longer for everybody or webmasters but for those who have Activate campaign.
For more understanding it means that google only allows those who advertise with them to use such tools (Adwords keyword planner) and for you to be able to use it you must have at least one running ads with them.
This will not be a good news to many webmasters but i understand that google never designed keyword planner for webmasters to use but for their adwords advertises to enable them find and target a specific keywords and estimate their cost per clicks or impressions.My fear
I am not too angry about Google's idea to restrict ordinary Webmasters who don't use adword for advertisement because is their own tools and they decide the best way to use it but my fear is, what if google decided to stop their free search services in the future and you are to pay to appear in search.
Let me know what you think about this.
