I’ve talked about this in the past, but it’s always good to have updated information, especially when it comes to the ever-changing world of SEO.
An important part of SEO is keywords. Well, honestly, keywords are SEO. Keywords are why search engines find your website or your articles, and they are why people who haven’t heard of your site end up on your site. There are other reasons too, like backlinks and such, but keywords are pretty important.
I’ve discussed keywords in the past and mentioned a couple tools you might use to help you along. These are still good tools to use, however there is a new tool that combines pretty much every aspect you’d need.
WordStream has released a new free keyword management tool called “The Free Keyword Tool”. It’s in its Beta version currently, but it is fantastic.
When you go to their site you can type your desired keyword(s) into the search box and see what happens! It quickly reroutes you to a page with three handy boxes on it.
Top left, we have the place where you can enter your keywords, and alter your search from the first initial page. Once you type it in it immediately shows Related Keywords to the right of it. You can select these if you want, or just hit the “Submit Keywords” button. Once you’ve submitted the keywords, it shows you the top 100 of however many keywords it finds under your search. You can see I typed in it “hair care”.
Some of the related words are hair removal clinics, laser hair clinics and laser hair removal clinics. The list that appears has hair care, beauty hair care, hair care products and hair care shampoo for the top four listed. There are 7,742 keywords found for our search. You can’t view them all on the webpage, but you can email them to yourself! You just type your email into the box at the bottom and hit the button to send it to your inbox. I did this to make sure it worked right.
When you download it, it saves it as a spreadsheet, all 7,742 keywords. If you don’t want all of them and just want those top 100 and don’t want to retype them all, then you can hit the “Click to copy keywords” button at the bottom left.
There’s no more of this question about what phrase to use or you can’t think of the right words. Just type in your keywords and let it do the hard part for you. Even if it’s not exactly what you want, it’ll give you some suggestions to help you along. All the work you have to do is pick and choose which ones you want to use.
