Keyword Questions has been developed
Posted by Mal Darwen on 25 March 2011
If you've been using our popular Keyword Questions tool over the past few days, you'll have noticed some significant changes - for one thing it's moved out of labs to Keyword Questions, and for another, there are now three further options on the tool to help with your Keyword Creativity and linkbait. It's better and more flexible than it's ever been.
Incidentally, since that post I've just linked to was written, Keyword Questions has attracted over 4,000 links (would you like to add to that?)
The video below outlines the improvements and explains how we've made them, so sit back for a minute (well, two and a half minutes) and find out what we've been up to. There's a transcript underneath, too, if my English accent proves too much for you!
Hi there, my name's Mal and I'm going to tell you a bit about the new version of Keyword Questions.
This useful content generation app helps you find great content ideas. Here's how it works.
You'll need a Wordtracker Free Tools account to use the tool in earnest, but that's quick and easy to set up.
So, let's look at Keyword Questions. Simply type in a seed word and you'll get back the 100 most popular keywords related to that seed word. That's right here, in the left hand tab - and here are our results. We've done this by adding 'modifiers' to the seed word - words that are often used in questions - so who, what, why, where, when and how, along with many other 'question' words.
The results can give you some great ideas for your articles and blog posts, but now there's more ...
On the next tab, you'll see Keyword Connections. For this function, we've used prepositions, words that connect other words in normal English. Examples of prepositions include because, except, from, between, within, toward, since, and so on. The results offer up conversational keywords that real people have used to search the internet, and which you can include in your copy while keeping your tone natural.
Moving along, we see the Random tab. It's long been known in Advertising circles that brainstorming with random words can produce some great ideas for campaigns. We've made this easier for you by setting the modifiers to include 200 'trigger' words to set your seed word against. This gives you ideas that you may not have thought of previously - and remember, all the results you see are real searches made by real people - we've just filtered them for you.
For the 'Top Keywords' tab, we've taken 200 of the web's most popular keywords as modifiers, so you can set those against your own. Type in a seed word and you'll unearth more popular searches in your niche. You can then test them in your content.
That's all for now - I hope you find this new version of Keyword Questions useful. If you have any questions, just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
