Connect with Google Ads in KeyWI

First, let's answer the question: Why? We use Google's Keyword Planner as a starting point for your new keyword set. It's an amazing tool that generates keywords on the go, so why not.. Next we will add more keywords a bit later, we'll come back to this in a second.

In KeyWI go to your account profile, next go to integrations. That should look something like this:

Account page > Integrations

Under "Add new integrations" you will find the integrations & plugins we currently offer. For keyword generation also known as keyword discovery, you will need to connect a Google Ads account. Sign in with Google and give us permission to connect your accounts. We will only use keyword planner to generate keywords with metrics for your organisation. We will not create any campaigns or use your data in any other way.

Add a Google Ads account to your account

Next up, connect one of your Ads accounts. Why? Because Ads account give you access to the Keyword Planner. So let's get this keyword party started.

Can't find any Ads accounts? First, check if you have one. Go to Google Ads and log in to check if you have an account. If they ask you to create one, do so if you want to generate keywords in KeyWI. No worries, you won't be charged anything until you create an ads campaign. (which you don't need in KeyWI)
