Include maximum CPC on the keywords and see the estimated performance in the new Google Keyword Tool’s Forecasting section.

On the left side we have an option “Plan Overview” which gives us location and other metrics info, also this can be used in the PPC (Pay Per Click) Quotation to your customer if you are a Digital Marketing agency.

The old keyword planner tool user might need some time to be familiar with the new tool but trust me it’s amazing.

If you are new to Google AdWords keywords Tool then simply visit and create your account. Please note, you might need to add your credit card to go to the Keyword Tool, previously it was accessible without adding the credit card.
