  Why use keyword tools by Jill Whalen.
  • Google Keyword Tool - (9/7/08) - added search volume numbers to the external keyword tool. The volume numbers are approximations). Generates potential keywords for your ad campaign and reports their Google statistics, including search performance and seasonal trends. My main keyword tool.
  • Google Search Based Keyword Tool - The Search-based Keyword Tool generates keyword and landing page ideas highly relevant and specific to your website. In doing so, the tool helps you identify additional advertising opportunities that aren't currently being used in your AdWords ad campaigns. Based on your URLs, the Search-based Keyword Tool displays a list of relevant user queries that have occurred on (and on other Google search properties, such as with some frequency over the past year; these suggestions can be found under the Keywords tab, in the New keywords related to (site) section. In the Keywords related to your search section, you can see a broad list of keyword ideas that are also relevant, but aren't necessarily based on your site.  (Excellent - Read more about it here).
