How To Use Google To Do The Best Keyword Research For Free

Jul 24, 2008
Google has quietly released a new version of the external Adwords Keyword Tool to display the number of times a keyword is searched for, when you use it for keyword research. By now showing us Search Volumes for keyword phrases searched for their extremely popular search engine Google gives us a much more accurate idea, for the first time ever, of how often a keyword is used and this is very important news.

Before this new release all involved in affiliate and internet marketing would have had to use a paid keyword research service, such as Keyword Discovery, Wordtracker, Wordze or Keyword Elite to create their keyword lists. The trouble with these services has always been that the amount of data they collect is small in comparison to what Google sees. On the other hand the number of searches recorded by Google is massive compared to what these traditional keyword services provide.

These paid keyword research services try and predict the total searches for each keyword by extrapolating their data, but the numbers returned cannot be considered accurate in any way at all. But because these tools were the only way to get any significant data they were relied on by many if not most internet marketers.

The Google Adwords external keyword tool has changed all this as it now displays key phrase search volumes that are not calculated, but which are taken directly from real search volume data gathered by Google from their own search engine. Now anyone performing keyword research can get all the data they need directly from Google, which will be much more accurate than that provided by the paid keyword research services.

What is more Google provides all this keyword data for free! Although designed originally for use just with Adwords by affiliate marketer this external keyword tool, as it is known, is available for anyone to use totally free. Once you know the link or URL you can just go straight to the tool and use it whenever you want.

Many top internet marketers in the industry are claiming this as the biggest thing that has happened to internet marketing for a very long time. For once it seems that Google is giving something back. Of course there are also many cynics out there who question why Google has done this and there are others who question the accuracy of the search data Google has revealed. Early checks have shown that in may cases the data is fairly accurate, but only time will tell as more analysis on these new results is completed.

The other fact that is important to remember is that there is also a free version of this for each geographic country location, such as the UK or Australia, so keyword search volumes are now also available for country specific keyword research. So for UK keyword research, the Google external Adwords keyword tool is now the best keyword research software currently available.

For internet marketers in those countries this is an exciting development as the traditional keyword tools just never had sufficient data for the keyword results they provided to provide useful information and what is more this new tool is free!
