Useful keyword research tool – and it’s free.
Scout Suggest is a free keyword research tool. Itâ€™s quite handy for putting in a seed term and then getting a list of suggested search terms – itâ€™s based on Google Autocomplete searches. Note that it is only a list of terms (itâ€™s free after all) thereâ€™s no indication of competitiveness, search volume of the value of the terms. Scout have a paid tool that includes all this (but full disclaimer: we havenâ€™t used the paid tool as yet).
If youâ€™re looking for a good guide to the value and process of keyword research then this guide from Moz is worth a read. Note: Moz have their own keyword tool as well – with a free offering and paid upgraded version – weâ€™ve used it and it is very good.
