#4. Now, the most important step ahead. On the welcome screen, don’t fill any of the fields or click on “Continue” button. Instead, click on the “Skip the Guided set-up.” option

#5. On the next page, enter your email address, Country, Time zone and Currency. Remember, once filled and saved, you can’t reverse or change these option in the future.

#6. It’ll take a while to set up a fresh AdWords Account for you where you can access the Keyword Planner tool.

#7. In AdWords dashboard, click on the Tools icon and then Keyword Planner under “Planning” Menu.

#8. Now, you can use Google AdWords Keyword Planner and find the keywords for your blog or websites as well as ad copies.
