It is always fun to discover new awesome tools and think “Why haven’t I thought about that myself?”. Last week I was lucky enough to come across two awesome keyword research tools that take advantage of data provided by Google.
Here are the tools:
1. Google Adwords Tool Result Visualization
- The the phrase font size represents its search volume.
- The phrase color represents its competition (red: high; orange: medium, green: low).
Additionally, once you hover over any term in the tag cloud, it shows you the actual search volume per month:
Clicking any term will add it to the right panel – that allows to download the final list as a text, Excel or CSV file (the panel is static, no matter how many queries you run within one session it will keep all your selected term):
The tool also has a 3D format (which I guess is more for fun as it is not really usable for the keyword research process, unlike the default 2D mode):
Finally, the tool has a pretty interface for setting the research preferences:
- Match type (broad, exact, phrase);
- Country to target;
- Number of results to return in the cloud;
- Cloud order (random, by search volume, by competition)
- “Only shows words with [low/high/medium] competition”
- “Only show words with search volume” [lower/higher than...]
- “Remove keywords including…”
2. Google Suggest Tool Result Expansion
Ubersuggest is a new tool that is no so much fun as the above one but which is nonetheless amazingly useful.
What it does is the following:
- Query Google Suggest service with the term you provide;
- Query Google Suggest with your term plus one of the
letters of the alphabet, such as [yoga a], [yoga b] and so on.
- Collect all the result provided saving you a long and tedious manual work.
For example, if you type [diabetes], you will see the following results expanded by letter:
… and this is just for letters [a] and [b] – you will see plenty of phrases for all the letters of the alphabet (these are just too many for me to be able o show the whole list on one screenshot).
You can then download the whole list as a txt file for further research and manipulation.
I found the tool an awesome help in keyword expanding – I’d love to hear your thoughts on my finds!
