Google Wonder Wheel
Last week I was looking for some free keyword tools, so I sent out a tweet to a few of my most trusted SEO/web marketing friends (@jasonrubacky @SeanMcGinnis @AirDisa and @Daver). I received several answers, below is a short list, but my new favorite is GOOGLE WONDER WHEEL! Just to give credit where credit is due, @AirDisa suggested the Wonder Wheel.
Short list of free keyword tools that were recommended to me:
- Google Insights Beta
- Google Trends
- Google Adwords keyword tool
- Google Trends
- Google Suggest
- Your keywords in Google Analytics
- *Keyword Discovery
- *Sem Rush
Google Wonder Wheel and a Vanity Search
If you don't already know, I search myself non-stop online, in fact, I believe I invented the Vanity Search. Several years back, when I was the only Leyla Arsan on the internet, I would search myself often to see if anything new popped up. Then a new Leyla Arsan showed up on Google and punted me back several pages (you can read more about that here - The Least Exciting Leyla Arsan on the Net).
To add to the Vanity Search fun, I decided to try out the Wonder Wheel using my own name. I quickly become involved, spinning and spinning that wheel.
Here is how it is done....
- Type in a search term in Google
- Hit "search"
- Look on the left hand column
- You will see "More search tools" on the bottom of the left hand column
- Click on "More search tools"
- And if you read down the list, you will see WONDER WHEEL - click it
- Next, you can click on the arms of the octopus looking diagram and more suggestions come up
My Google Vanity Search Results
I started with my first and last name, hit search and then clicked on wonder wheel. I clicked on Leyla Arsan Popular, and kept clicking until I got.... Leyla Arsan WORST. But my favorite was "Leyla Arsan Dangerous" - I did not get that far, but I wonder what would have happened if I clicked on that. Google Wonder Wheel is great fun. I hope you enjoy!
