Google Keyword Research: 6 Free Methods to Research Keywords Using Google

Google is the most widely used search engine, making keyword research using it quite popular. People frequently use Google.com to do keyword searches in an effort to find information and solutions to their concerns. It makes reasonable that users would use free keyword research tools like the Google Keyword Planner and Google Search Console to create keyword lists. To generate even more ideas, you may also use Google Autocomplete, Google search suggestions, Google image searches, and YouTube Autocomplete.

Personally, I recommend starting with a short-tail keyword that represents a topic that you want to create content for. In my example, I used the short-tail keyword of ‘PPC Advertising’ and I found 42 unique keyword suggestions.

1. Google Autocomplete

To create your keyword list, use the Google.com suggestions when you are searching. To receive even more term suggestions, click in the Google search bar before entering your query.

2. YouTube Autocomplete

You can use the recommendations on YouTube.com, which is owned by Google, in addition to those on Google.com.

3. Google Search Tabs (News, Images, etc.)

Search for your short-tail term on Google. For more inspiration, next select the News, Images, Videos, and Shopping categories.

4. Google Keyword Planner

I generally start all of my keyword research with the Google Keyword Planner. Search your short-tail keyword and then use filters to make sure the search queries contain long-tail variations of your keyword.

5. Google Trends

Google Trends is excellent for locating hot topics related to the themes you write about. Not every website will benefit from it, but if you cover news, it is essential.

6. Google Search Console

You can use Google Search Console to discover the keywords you rank for and your average position as you begin adding content to your website and moving up the rankings.
