What you'll need

In order to add your Adwords account details in Market Samurai, you will need your Adwords email address and password.

Welcome to Keyword Research

Clicking on the Keyword Research module will bring up this dialog box. I already have a Google Adwords account so i'll just click this button to enter my details.

Enter 'Email Address' and 'Password'

Here I can enter my email address and password.

Save and continue

I enter my details, then click save and continue.

Now using Google Adwords account

Market Samurai now shows me that I’m using my Adwords account to generate my list of keywords.

    Will Google limit our number of queries?

    I get that this is a big step forward at identifying Long Tail and related keywords. I'm concerned that once I identify myself to Google via my adwords credentials, that they will track the number of queries that I am doing.

    Or is it that this is just for the KW identification and the other great features in MS using the built in proxies will continue to protect my IP and the others on it from Google limiting service requests?

    Thank you.

    In your video transcripts, you mention if someone does not have a google adwords account, to click here..I clicked and nothing happened..

    Also you have adwords misspelled in one page of tutorial.
    Thank you.

    Very powerful little addition to the software! wish it would go sometime faster but I guess it is what happens when one gets "real" on time data!

    I don't understand why you allow comments on your videos, if you don't have time (or whatever is lacking) to reply to people's queries. After most of them that I have read (transcripts that is), there have been questions asked - usually several months ago - which I would have been interested in reading your responses to. Like number 1 above. But no, all I get are the questions. No answers. Very frustrating.
    I guess this means that no one will read or reply to this comment either...

    @James RE: Limiting queries

    It is only the Keyword Suggestions and traffic values that go through the Adwords login. Everything else goes through the proxies.

    If you really hammer the keyword generation you may get a rate limit, however this is temporary and will clear after a few hours.

    You are quite right. We did get behind on moderating and responding to comments. We'll focus on that more in future.

    Glad to see a response from Dr Anthony!

    I am new to MS (and SEO in general) and I'm finding the videos most useful, clearing up a lot of questions I have and proving how sound an investment it was subscribing to MS, but I was getting concerned about the lack of responses to video comments.

    Hopefully this will be a focus for the MS team moving forward - keep up the good work guys!

    The currency that AWCPC is shown in depends on the currency setting on your Adwords account.

    To get USD amounts for AWCPC you will need to create a new Adwords account and select USD as the currency setting.

    Not getting this on my Market Samurai. Doesn't matter if I click "don't have" or "already have" an adwords account. This add adwords account info doesn't come up.

    You can always add it manually

    In order to manually add your Adwords account details in Market Samurai:

    1. Bring up the "Settings" box from the File menu (or if you're on a Mac, it's "Preferences" from the Application menu)
    2. Select the "Accounts" tab
    3. Select the account for which you'd like to edit (in this case 'New Adwords Account')
    4. Make sure that you have entered the correct email address and password - it may be necessary to remove the account using the "X" button and enter the information again if you're unsure
    5. Click on 'Add Account'
    6. Click Save'
