Hi Everyone,

I've been reading through the WF threads for quite awhile, and have now decided to try an take some action.

Anyway, I wanted to research 'keywords' and downloaded a FREE version of Market Samurai as someone suggested on another thread.

Well, apparently Market Samurai doesn't work without an active Adwords account. So, I've set my account up, but have not funded it or created a campaign yet as I have absolutely no clue 'how to use adwords' nor do I have a website at the moment.

I am trying to research keywords; to help me choose a domain name!!!

So funding the AdWords account or creating an ad campaign seems stupid at this point! - and Yet it appears Market Samurai won't let me log into my Adwords account until I fund and create a campaign(!?)

Does anyone know if there is a tool that produces monthly search results for specific keywords?

I used to fiddle around with Google's external tool, but the new 'planner' doesn't seem to generate the number of searches monthly anymore like it used to.

Sorry for the long post, spent the last few hours brainstorming domain name ideas, and cannot find a way to see if the main keywords in my domain choices are likely to be good in the search engines or not?

Thanks,

Terri

    You can always go with google's built in tool, but unfortunately there is no cheap way around. If this project is something that matters to you I suggest going with a paid tool and getting a good start from the get-go.

    you can use google keyword planner
    about market samurai it's not necessarily to create an ad camp you didn't understood right
    you must create a gmail account and go to google adword planner and login with your gmail account and activate adwords but you don't need to pay or create any ad

    Log into your google account and use the google keyword planner. This is the best option because most of the paid tools use the google database.

    I thing the keyword planner tool by google is also not providing the relevant but approximate search volumes of the keywords. But an approximate value. Still good for the business. Have you found Google adword keyword tool?a

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I was able to finally find the keyword traffic estimates using the keyword planner tool. It took a minute, as the new set up is WAY different than the old external search tool.

    I really don't like the new set up, but I was able to see the estimated [exact] searches for my keyword (*which was 18,100) - but it's not as simple or informative as the old version.

    As far as Market Samurai and not being able to loin into my adwords account from inside the MS dashboard, I had to clear my cookies, and change some settings in explorer tools, which was generating the 'error' code.

    Geez... it was so much easier to just type a keyword and hit search to see the 'monthly searches' and generate keyword ideas with the old external tool.

    Sometimes I think google just likes complicating it for ANYONE trying to get a cut of the internet market!
