Just a randomly random reminder that if you're not already - you SHOULD BE USING GOOGLE SUGGEST.
What's that? Here's a picture.
Why should you use it?
1. It's based on real searches. Unless people are regularly searching it, it won't show in the drop down.
2. It contains stacks of longtail keywords that most fancy keyword tools can't find.
3. Your entire title is basically written for you, right there!
Bonus reason: 80% of the content on one of my main content websites has been written using Google suggest research and I get 500,000 views/month because of that. It's worth your time!
Need help figuring out how to use it to best advantage and check the competition on a phrase? I have a hub on that
Thanks. I've been using it for a while. Didn't realize what it was called, though.
Yes, it's a great tool! I have noticed that, if you use private browsing, it gets even better, especially for related keywords.
Can you give me link to google suggest? I am unable to figure it out
As an author, could I use it to promote one of my books?
I usually recommend your Hub on Google Suggest when people want to know about getting traffic. Definitely worth using Google Suggest for keyphrases.
Honestly that is a great piece of info. I am literally going to do that now for my 2nd Hub. I'm using adwords also which is handy for SEO.
Great idea - quick question though. Does this change based on your own personal searches, or based on whether you are logged into Google+, gmail etc.?
If you are choosing a title it is also worth looking at something that takes you from easy to rank for phrases to harder to rank for phrases.
So 'Best Scary Movies for Children with Monsters or Giants' has several phrases people might search for:
Best Scary Movies for Children with Monsters or Giants
Best Movies for Children with Monsters
Best Movies for Children with Giants
Scary Movies for Children with Monsters
Movies for Children with Giants
Movies for Children with Monsters
Best Scary Movies for Children
Scary Movies for Children
Best Movies for Children
Movies for Children
It should be easy to get visitors to the top few phrases but there will not be many. The phrases further down the list are harder to rank for but you might get there after a year or two and pick up a ton of traffic.
I sort of see titles as a wedge that you drive into search engines. The tip gets you a few visitors and lets Google measure how visitors react to a page. The more the wedge penetrates, the more visitors you get.
Also remember, those drop down search suggestion boxes are all over the place. Amazon has an interesting one for anyone product orientated.
Be careful with "Google Suggest" - there is a suspicion that it is currently being manipulated by those with political agendas. It's not difficult.

So use your common sense and a pinch of salt and whatever else you use to make an informed choice and keep away the bogeymen when it comes to more contentious topics!

I keep saying this but - this is probably one of the BEST ways I've found to get organic traffic and find out what people REALLY want to know. It's called Google suggest. You probably remember it as that little annoying drop down box which appears when you start typing into Google. I've been using...
