How are the suggestions generated?
We use Google's Autocomplete system to get the most popular keywords suggested by Google.
By combining your focus keyword with a range of modifiers we can tease out unique long tail keywords that make for excellent article ideas based on your terms, helping your power past your competitors positions in the SERPs.
For example, prefixing question words such as 'where' can show new phrases that searchers are typing into Google. Comparison words such as 'vs' can help you find super specific buyer keywords that may have low volume but high buyer intent.
Answering searcher's questions in a clear and direct way makes it much easier to rank for your target topics and a huge number of related keywords.
Can I see the keyword's monthly search volume?
Having been an independent search marketer my whole life I know how expensive tools can be. I wanted to keep this tool free to ensure people at any stage in their career can get value from it.
Unfortunately keyword metrics such as monthly organic search volume and CPC cost money so I won't be adding those features to this keyword generator tool, but if you need a service that does then please check out our paid keyword research suite.
That said, it is worth asking if you really need that data? We know any keyword that appears in Google's suggestions has at least some search volume. Keyword suggestions are only listed by Google if they are searched fairly regularly each month.
Many tools use cached data for volume that can miss trending topics that only appear in Google Trends or Autocomplete Suggestions. Sample sizes are also small for many niches so a 'low volume' keyword can often bring a surprising amount of traffic.
For many valuable terms, such as in finance or B2B (business to business) most keywords are very low volume. Yet the value of a customer is so high it is often still worth writing articles to cover '10 search per month' but highly relevant keywords.
Not only are they are frequently less competitive, helping you to rank in a top position, but if those visitors are CEOs interested in your tool, you have the ability to make more sales.
Is this tool an alternative to Ubersuggest or Answer The Public?
When building this tool I wanted to achieve two things: to discover alternative keywords that simply wouldn't be highlighted by other tools, and to make managing those keywords easier.
Each 'suggestion' from Google contains a maximum of 25 keywords. If we simply add the letters of the alphabet to your keyword that's a maximum of 25*25=625 keywords. Not many, and it's also likely your competition are using the exact same list.
But if we get creative with prepositions, comparitative terms and question keywords we can generate thousands of phrases you simply wouldn't find on these other services. Many of these results trigger great suggestions and ideas for article titles. These resulting phrases can also suggest entire new categories of content you may not have considered otherwise.
I also wanted it to be simpler to manage your keyword lists. By automatically grouping similar keywords into clusters we can help you reduce duplicates and see a clear list of article ideas, along with synonyms and modifiers you may wish to use in each post.
How can I use these queries to improve my website's performance?
Generally, most marketers will use a keyword suggestion tool like this to stimulate ideas for new content.
By adding new pages to your site that cover a wider range of information you have the potential of ranking for many more long tail search phrases.
Search engines like to feature websites that include plenty of original, quality content. By writing more guides, analysis and advice on your niche you increase your overall relevance, which can make your entire site perform better in organic search.
You can also use the suggestions from our keyword generator to discover new modifiers and synonyms to use in your copy. If you have a page that is already ranked high in an engine like Google, Bing or Youtube then adding more suggested keywords to your title, sub headings or article body could get you much higher rankings for your site or your clients digital marketing campaigns.
In addition, as anyone working in search engine optimization will know, content optimization is a very powerful tool, yet to really succeed you will also need some backlinks. By lightly sprinkling a variety of the long tail phrases you've discoveed into your anchor text when link building you can see considerable gains. But don't be too aggressive - over optimizing your anchor text can lead to some painful alorithimc filters and penalties.
Does this free keyword suggestion tool support different languages and countries?
Absolutely. By default we show results from the United States, but if you'd like something else you simply need to set the country you wish to check suggestions for, and change the settings to your language as needed before you start. We've translated our modifiers into a wide range of different countries and locales but if we've missed an important one to you please let us know!
Is this a useful alternative to Google's Keyword Planner for advertisers on Google Ads?
using a long tail keyword generator to find a wide range of keyword
phrases you can drive many more targeted users to your site. Whether
you're using Google Adwords Keyword Planner or another online advertising tool.
Creating ad groups around specific searches your customers are making can dramatically improve your ad performance, as highly relevant ads can improve your quality score and click through rates. By avoiding the high competition keywords you can also help bring down your cost per click.
Where else can I find untapped keyword ideas?
