I recently noticed that Google Adwords Keyword Tool ([url]https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal[/url]) stopped returning any general gambling related keyword results and suggestions. Data is only returned for the exact searched word, or any related directly not gambling related phrases.
And no, I have not checked the box 'Only show ideas closely related to my search terms'.
For example a 'Find keywords' search with 'All Countries' and 'English' with word "casino" only returns one result "casino" and no other suggestions. Whereas previously that query would have returned hundreds of related suggestions, like for any other keyword.
Search for "gambling" returns a few directly non-gambling related phrases like "gambling therapy, gambling law, roulette wheel, gambling accessories".
Apparently Google has applied some kind of block for gambling keywords. Does anyone know of a setting that would get around this restriction?
I've tried that checking 'Include adult ideas' does not work.
And I have also tested and verified this problem when logged in to a Google UK Adwords account ([url]https://adwords.google.co.uk/[/url]) that is verified by Google to be allowed to buy gambling Adwords ads in UK & Ireland.
