Google has a no. of tools that make it very simple to carry out keyword research, and their free AdWords tool called Keyword Planner is a great place to start. Please note that you'll need create an AdWords account and provide your credit card details to use Keyword Planner and it’s worth bearing in mind that you card won’t be charged unless you create an advert.
When you enter a keyword, multiple keywords, or your website url into Keyword Planner, Google will then provide you with a list of related keywords along with simple and easy to follow stats to gauge the level of the competition for each one and how many searches it gets on both a global and local search level - The no. of searches is usually displayed on a monthly basis - This can also be useful to show which time of year certain keywords are most popular.
Google Trends is another free tool from Google.You can enter multiple keywords and filter by search history, location and category. Once you enter these details, it'll give you results that show how much interest there is for a specific keyword, what caused the interest (e.g.,social media or PR) -- along with similar keywords.
Instead of giving you static keyword volume numbers it generates colorful, interactive graphs that you can play with, download, and even embed on your website. It'll also give you insightful info in.
Keyword Tool is a free online keyword research tool which can come in handy when searching for a list of long-tail keyword suggestions related to a keyword you already have in mind. It's also totally free and to use the most basic version, you don't even need to sign up or have an account.
Keyword Tool cleverly uses Google Autocomplete to generate a list of relevant long-tail keywords suggestions. The search terms suggested by Google Autocomplete are based on a range of factors. This type of suggestion tool can also help you understand what people are searching for around your topics and can help brainstorm blog post titles that will do well in searches.
One limitation is that the free version doesn't tell you anything about cost-per-click (CPC) or search volume. In order to obtain this info, you'll have to upgrade to Keyword Tool Pro. The Pro version will also let you export the keywords and use them for content creation, search engine optimization, CPC/PPC, or other marketing activities.
