We all know about the value that you can find while performing keyword research using the Google Suggest feature for regular search as well as images, videos, and more.
But let’s look beyond Google for a moment – other sites are incorporating the suggestion feature in their search box as well. Here are just a few of them, as well as some examples of the variety in keyword ideas in comparison to the ones Google suggests as pictured above.
Looking to get your site optimized for Bing? Why not start with seeing what keywords are popular with Bing as opposed to Google?
Although Bing and Yahoo are merged, what people type into one vs. the other is quite different, as is shown by the results of this search vs. the one in Bing pictured earlier.
Topsy is a social media search engine which looks at the latest links and photos shared on Twitter about particular topics.
Wefollow is a Twitter directory that allows Twitter users to list themselves under particular keywords. You can see what people consider themselves experts in in relation to your keyword.
Want to see what is most searched when it comes to social bookmarking? Delicious offers suggestions in their search box when looking for bookmarks.
The suggestions offered by YouTube are the same as the ones suggested by Google Video – the only difference is that on Google you will get results from lots of video networks, whereas YouTube results will stick with YouTube videos.
