In order to use the Google Keyword Planner Tool, you will need to open a Google Adwords account first. We will walk you through the steps you need to take to open an account.
Even though you will walk through a process that requires you to give Google your credit card number, you can cancel the campaign you created immediately.
You won’t be charged for anything unless you decide to run Pay Per Click ads. Now you’re ready to begin your keyword research once you’ve signed up for an Adwords account.
