Best SEO Keyword Suggestion Tool - Google AdWords

A simple process which I recommend to select keywords for SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

Step1: Go to Google AdWords Keyword Tool

Step2: Select “Website Content” option, enter the website URL and get the initial list of keyword suggestion

Step3: Extract only relevant keywords from the list (don't just start using the entire keyword list). Keeping the relevant keywords ready, go to the next step.

Step4: Go to the same tool, but now select the option “Descriptive words or phrases” and get keyword ideas for each and every keyword separately

Step5: Enable the column “Search Volume Trends” from the drop-down box,

Step6: Now just tabulate the data as shown below,


Approx Average Search Volume

Search Volume Trends (raising or falling)

Advertiser Competition or Google Search Competition

Sample Keyword



Medium Competition

Using the above data, extract the keywords which has a Average Advertising Competition, Raising trend of search volume with more than 100 Approx Average Search Volume.

Now use the final list of keywords and optimize the website for better result and traffic.

Rick, Nice tool. But it has some limitations. The process which I have explained is just a brief, you can add your ideas to make it better and use it as per your requirements.

Anyways, thanks for the tool. My AdSense friends will make use of it.
