Google keyword planner, a tool used by most advertisers and SEOs has become restricted for many users.
Over the past few weeks, keyword planner has been getting affected by some technical issues. The situation has become such that, only those who are having an active Adwords account can see the actual search volume.
”To use Keyword Planner, you need to have at least one active campaign. If you have an active campaign and are still seeing this message, try reloading Keyword Planner in a few minutes.”
A high percent of advertisers can see keyword planner data as like before but AdWords users with a “lower monthly spend” could see only limited data in the planner.
There has been some technical trouble with the keyword planner in the past few weeks. And google reported that these have been fixed. But so far, it seems like the restrictions are permanent
