How Does The SEO Book Keyword Tool Work?
This keyword tool is powered by Wordtracker’s API. You can explore more keywords by subscribing to their powerful keyword research tools.
Our Free Keyword Research Tool :
- Offers rough suggested daily search volumes by market for Google, Yahoo!, and MSN.*
- Links the search volumes to the related global search results.
- Provides links to price estimate tools from Google AdWords. That Google AdWords tool shows the necessary bid to rank #1 for 85% of queries, and roughly how much traffic you could expect AdWords to send you based on that bid price and ad position.
- Links to Google Trends, Google Suggest, Google Synonyms, Yahoo! Suggest, and Keyword Discovery keyword research results.
- Links to various vertical databases like Topix.net, Google Blogsearch, and Del.icio.us to let you know if people are talking about your topic and what types of resources they are referencing.
- Is driven off the Wordtracker keyword suggestion tool. If you sign up for a Wordtracker account they offer many additional keyword research features and tools that are lacking in our basic keyword tool.

- People tend to typically use language in similar patterns. If there are 14,000,000 search results for [“car hire”] and only 2,000,000 pages for [“hire car”] then odds are car hire is a more common search term.
- Since we estimate Google, Yahoo!, and MSN traffic based on Wordtracker’s keyword data, any sampling error is amplified due to the difference in traffic.
* Please note our tool currently assumes Google having ~ 70% of the market, Yahoo! having ~ 20% of the market, and MSN search having ~8% of the market, and is based on rough math that is less precise than Wordtracker’s computational techniques.
Depending on your topic / vertical and your geographic location the search engines may have vastly different search volumes. The tool can only possibly offer approximations. Exact search volumes are hard to find due to vanity searches, click bots, rank checkers, and other forms of automated traffic. Exceptionally valuable search terms may show far greater volume than they actually have due to various competitive commercial forces inflating search volumes due to automated search traffic.
