As you have heard us say time and time again, successful bloggers discover what people are searching for and provide answers, advice, and tips in an attempt to add value to their niche.

A few months ago, I shared a blog post about ways to use Auto-Suggest in Google to get a ton of new content ideas. I still love this approach because it provides so many ideas related to a topic. I also love that most of the suggestions are considered “long tail keywords.”

What Does Long Tail Keywords Mean?

Let me make a few distinctions for you and hopefully it helps

  • Head Keywords – these are short keywords that represent a ton of traffic and a ton of competition. An example would be “hair loss.”
  • Long tail keywords – Long tail keywords are often searched less but normally much easier to rank for. Using our first example, “hair loss for senior women” would be a long tail keyword.

Here is a graphic below that should connect the dots for you between the two.

Using the graphic above, let’s say you have a digital camera blog. You should be looking for and discovering “long tail” keywords like “Sony Digital Camera 7.1MP with 3x Optical Zoom” and writing reviews on it.

Keyword Researcher – A New Long Tail Keyword Tool

You can imagine my excitement when I found a simple long tail keyword tool that would find tons and tons of long tail keywords for me. It is called the Keyword Researcher Tool.  It basically scrapes the Google Auto-Suggest that I mentioned above and grabs hundreds of keywords for you.

All you do is place an asterisk (*) in the spot that you want searched in your phrase. (It may sound confusing at first, but watch the video for more insight.) I have been using it now for over a month and I am still coming up with new ideas all of the time.

Here is some of the search functions you can use along with your niche to find lots of keyword topics.

“Question” words:

  • Does a camera *
  • Does * Nikon
  • Is * camera

“How” words:

  • How does a camera *
  • How * a camera
  • How * on my camera

“For” words:

  • * for a camera
  • Cameras for *
  • Cameras * for

“Top” words:

  • Best * camera
  • Top 10 camera *
  • Best selling camera *

“Buy” words:

  • Buy * cameras
  • * cameras for sale
  • Buy camera *

After I get back a few hundred keywords, I highlight the whole list and then paste it into my keyword database tool of choice, If you do not have a keyword database tool, you can just save it in a notepad or excel file and get to work creating content from your new article topic ideas.

Bob and I love the Keyword Researcher tool so much that we are including some more detailed tutorials in the upcoming release of the Blogging Your Passion University 201 Course. The creator of the tool was kind enough to offer a special discount just for Blogging Your Passion readers. You will need to click on the link below to get the tool for only $21.97!

  1. Sorry if I’m missing it, but what is the URL of this site/tool? Can’t seem to find it in the article/video or in the the giant pool of search results?

      Awesome Nicholas. That is great to hear. Our goal is to give out the best info on blogging on the net. Thanks for being a part of BYP.

  2. Hi Jonathan, just finished watching your one of the SEO videos from your BYP 201 course – love the course, by the way…a few questions though: since I have a Google Adwords keyword tool why would I bother spending extra money on the Keyword Researcher Tool you all recommend? Doesn’t the free adwords tool do the same thing as Keyword Researcher, as well as give you CPC and monthly search numbers, and high/low competition data? What are your top reasons for liking this tool over the free Adwords tool?

    1. Jonathan Milligan

      The Keyword Researcher gives you keywords from the Google AutoSuggest feature. The keywords are generally longer than the Google Adwords tool. The Keyword Research tool also gives you the ability to get keywords from Amazon and it offers many helpful question-related keywords (my favorite to blog about).

      1. Thanks for the tip – one more question because I’ve used the tool now a little. Any features it has that you know about that show global/local searches per month, high/low competition, etc., or do you typically not worry about that kind of stuff?

        1. Jonathan Milligan

          I typically do not worry about it. The long tail stuff doesn’t have a ton of traffic, but if you get 2 to 3 visits a month from 100’s of long tail traffic you can build a nice traffic to your site. It does take patience and work. Also, use the tool to discover new topics in your niche you hadn’t thought about. Become someone who covers every available topic in your niche.
