    1. True… Google is always going to be the main go to. I sometimes find I want some alternative keyword ideas, even if just for blog post topics, and that’s when having the other search suggestions come in handy! Will have to check out Dogpile.

  1. How does that help us? WOuldn’t it be better to see all of these site’s equivilant to the adwords toolbar?

    1. I wouldn’t use this as your only keyword research tools – they are just alternatives if you are looking for something different than the typical Adwords suggestions.

      The way I look at it, the suggest terms are the ones people are most likely to get distracted by if they don’t have something specific in mind, so it wouldn’t hurt to be optimized for them as well. Plus it can help you create some variety in your anchor text so you don’t get slapped with a Google penalty.

  2. even if i always believe google is on the top , i think giving these tools a try wont be bad , and i can guess how helpful trying more than a way for keywords is !!! thank you for the post any way i’ll be checking this

  3. It always pays to have other reference tools aside from Google. We can compare its results and decide what is best for our website. Glad to know that there are others who are offering this service.

    1. Yes, the automatic suggestions as you type are becoming more and more popular across many sites. Definitely a good way to find more keywords than just what Google deems relevant.

  4. Kristi:

    I had no idea all of these were available. We have been so “google-ized”..feel free to steal that….it’s almost like being brainwashed! Thank you for showing us some other viable options.

  5. Truly a great post Kristi. Optimizing in these keywords might not be the best but for sure it wont hurt and yet the probabilities for better results are always there. These keywords really work for those surfers who don’t have clear idea in the subject so they are more likely to click and search from those keywords that search engines choose for them.Great Post and thanks a lot!

  6. Its great post. Even though we know that there are more search engine, majority of people wouldn’t try any thing other than Google. After reading your post people came to know about various keyword, tools available in other search engine than Google.

    1. I don’t know if someone will come out with something better, persay. But it will be interesting to see if the smaller ones start merging with each other until they have enough klout to take over. ie. Yahoo + Bing, Blekko + DuckDuckGo, and others.

    3. Google is the 800 pound gorilla in the search world, but not sure they can maintain that large of a market share forever. There is bound to be someone that is going to seriously compete and better to be in there with them before that happens.

      Bing and Yahoo merging is pretty significant. Then, it always depends on your market cause different target markets use different resources.

      Great post, Kristi!

  7. Great list of alternative options for doing keyword suggest research. Google may be at the top of the list and the de facto “go to”, but getting a well-rounded picture of all other search engines is essential to creating content that has the best chance to rank across them all.

  8. Optimising for Bing / Yahoo AND Google is a right pain but these little differences DO make the difference. I must check out Blekko soon…

  9. Blekko looks interesting.

    This may be more helpful. I have not used Blekko before.
    Thanks for these kind of resources.

  10. I think Blekko is really the nice one to share with your friends. But I think all of that are great their just differ on the navigation if they are fast and easy or just to slow.
