What has happened to Google Ads Keyword Tool?
The site seems to last for about 2 minutes and then disappears, you need to sign in if you are an advertiser. But I don't have an advertising account. Help! Any suggestions on what to do?
Google has gotten rid of the free keyword tool and now requires an adwords account in order to use it. I got an account and that is all I use it for.
Google has updated it's look, but you can still use the old interface (as of 5/25/10). Look at the top-right of the screen and click "previous interface".
I might be wrong, but I don't think you need to have an Adwords account to use the tool. I do have an Adwords account but I did not have to login to use the keyword tool and the screen does not show me as being logged in when I use it.
Your problem with the site disappearing might be because of something else. If it's still happening, try downloading the data before the 2 minutes runs out.
You can still find the old tool here:
usually if you refresh the page a new captcha code appears and if you just fill this in you should be ok.
Just sign up for a google account, it's free and you don't have to use adwords.

...guess what? It seems that unless I'm missing something, you now need to have an AdWords account to get the keyword tool to show the estimated average CPC for a keyword/phrase. If you don't have an AdWords...

I think my last try was over a year ago. I honestly have never had success with it EVER, even with third party tools, bar ONE title about three years back. If you're freaked out by it, don't stress. You don't HAVE to do...

Can it be? It is not showing for me.If anybody knows how to access the old version I would be most grateful, that place is invaluable for long string keywords!
