|Wednesday, September 16, 2009
We've been lucky enough to get a sneak peek at Word Stream's new keyword tool. The tool set to be released shortly is continuously updating a database of over a billion of the world's most popular keywords, aggregating over a trillion unique searches. This means that you get more keywords returned FASTER, for FREE!
Keyword research forms the foundation of any SEO or PPC campaign. At the heart of the traditional functionality of the search engines are simple keyword queries. Search is all about people trying to find the information that they are looking for. Search has been around for a while now and online searchers are becomming quite savvy with their queries. Why else would we be seeing the trends that we are seeing? That is longer types of queries are being used more often than in the past. A number of search engines including Microsoft's Bing and ASK. com have reported that they are seeing longer search queries happening all of the time. Where users previously may have searched for a single word or a two or three word phrase, users are now searching based on queries of six, seven, eight or more words.
What does this mean for search marketing?
The need for effective keyword research tools and effective keyword research processes is required more than ever.

The cool things about the Wordstream keyword tool is that:
Based on industry partnerships, Wordstream obtains its keyword data from:
- It's free!
- You can get your keyword list emailed to you
- You can copy the keywords with one simple click
In the past we have questioned the accuracy of data from the keyword tools out there. While our experience with Wordstream's keyword tool is based on some initial trials, we liked their approach that they are taking with their tool:
- Internet Service Providers
- Browser Toolbars
- Search Engines
Keyword tools in general are well known for providing highly dubious keyword suggestions and search estimates. In designing the Free Keyword Tool, our goal was to devise a means to overcome known problems with existing keyword tools. For example, we've found that:Wordstream Keyword Tool FAQ
- Google's keyword suggestion tool has a tendency to favor the most popular keyword suggestions (so called "head terms") while greatly overestimating keyword search volume. We've also noticed that the tool is a bit slow in returning results.
- Wordtracker and other keyword tools that draw from unpopular search engines like Metacrawler and Dogpile tend to favor less popular keyword searches (so called "long-tail" terms), and the results aren't particularly accurate or actionable, either.
