Today’s post – all about how to use Google keyword planner – was inspired by a Facebook discussion I had a couple weeks ago. Someone had asked for keyword planner suggestions in a blogging group, and this is how the conversation unfolded:
Can you relate to this conversation at all? If so, you’re clearly not alone!
The good news is, the Google keyword planner actually is accessible once you know the simple – yet completely counterintuitive – trick to do so. And best of all, it’s both free and easy to operate. So this means you can use the planner as much as you want, find perfect keywords for your site, and not pay a penny. Woohoo!
But let me back up a bit…
What Is A Google Keyword Planner Anyway?
The Google keyword planner is a free tool within Google Adwords, which helps you identify popular search terms and phrases to incorporate within your blog or website.
Why does it matter if your site includes popular search terms, you ask? Simply put, SEO.
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, and it plays a critical part in your online presence.
You see, good SEO with clear, searchable keywords means that your content appears earlier in Google’s search results. When your content appears sooner, that means you’re reaching a larger audience and potentially attracting more traffic to your site. Sound appealing? I think so, too.

Enter Google Keyword Planner
For months I kept hearing about the benefits of Google’s keyword planner. It was supposedly so easy to use and was incredibly helpful for bringing in readers, customers, etc.
Intrigued by the prospect of this “wonder tool,” I figured I’d better give it a try, too!
Well it turns out, accessing this supposedly free program was a bit more tricky than I’d imagined.
You see, when you search for the planner in Google, and you click through to the website, it appears like you must create an account and enter your credit card information.
Now I don’t know about you, but when I’m signing up for a “free tool,” providing my credit card number is something I try to avoid…
Fortunately, after doing some digging, I discovered a way to sidestep this obstacle and access the Google keyword planner for free – no credit card needed. And what’s more, the planner really is just as helpful as everyone claims it is.
