    Should I be using a second google act for this. (I know how to do multiple gmail acts) to keep it separate for research? What do you do?

    Hi Joni - there's no real reason to use a separate Google account in most instances. There are rare situations where our techsupport people will advise you to try using one as a way around a particular symptom, but for the vast majority of customers there's no problem with using an Adwords account with Market Samurai, whether or not you do anything else with it.

    I've tried 2 different adwords accounts and I can't get past the "Loading Google Keyword Tool..." screen.

    Hi Brian,

    Sorry to hear you are having problems!!

    Can you please submit a support ticket so that we can help you get to the bottom of this?

    Just head to and fill out the form.

    It would also be great if you submitted a debug log at the same time:

    Hi Niki please ignore previous comment. The answer was in the next video, which brings me to a suggestion. It would be more logical if this was the first lesson as according to the video you need to create an Adwords Account before you can start keyword research.
    Being a newbie, I don't understand why it is necessary to have an Adwords Account with Google before using this tool. I've seen other keyword research tools that don't have a prerequisite like this. Can you pls explain. Thanks

    @Niki - Unfortunately, Google now requires all users to log in to their Adwords accounts in order to request large numbers of keywords, or to use the Traffic Estimator.

    Any other keyword research tool that does not require an Adwords account is either severely limited in their functionality or do not use the Google Keyword Tool to retrieve keywords.
