    I use Google suggest. Thousands of longtail keywords with guaranteed traffic. I haven't used the Google keyword tool in several years.

      WryLilt, you've always been suggesting keyword suggest. I tend to use it too for ideas, but when I am trying to search for terms that would get me traffic should I still stick to this method? Because when I use various keyword tools (free and paid) the long tail suggestions, at times have 0 average searches per month. Are these terms just not detected via the tools or are they really not being searched for that often?

      You probably have some experience with this.

        Keyword tools get more inaccurate the more keywords you add. The Google keyword tool can be a few hundred out on searches.

        Questions won't appear in Google suggest unless they're getting traffic. That traffic can ebb and flow during the year (particularly for seasonal topics) but they're things people Google.

        Just remember: the title of your hub needs to include the exact phrase from Google suggest and the Google results need to have low or no competition.

      As you suggested this earlier, I had used your "Google Suggest" method for all mu hub titles but I don't know I am not getting enough traffic. Is there any specific time we have to wait for it?

      I have also used "MFP" method as per your suggestion but don't know, even that is not working well. I am getting 2 to 8 view from Pinterest. Is there anything wrong with my MFP images?

        Hi Ashish,

        I just had a look at your hubs. Your MFPs are great in terms of beautiful images. However some of them are quite busy, with lots of images, making it hard to identify the text. When people are scrolling through hundreds of images on Pinterest, you only have a few seconds to grab their attention with a great title. Also, your cooking topics seem to be around cooking things the way a certain fast food outlet does - the current trend is towards healthier foods, so that may be why they're not doing well.

        How to Grow Grape Vine in Your Backyard - does not exact match any Google suggest and has high competition from .gov sites.

        How to Cook Baked Sweet Potato Wedges or Fries like McDonald's - coming up #2 for exact match Google results, but it looks as if no one is actually searching that (there's no Google suggest match for it).

        9 Steps to Lay Laminate Flooring - tons of competition, from both Adwords and other websites.

        Remember: You need to have the exact Google suggest phrase in your title and you need to make sure the phrase has no competition (some do, many don't - look for ones where the top results are Yahoo Answers or forum posts, or the topic is only mention in the blog post, not the title).

        You've only got 14 hubs. It takes time, both to learn and rank. Keep at it! I'd expect that if you choose topics with more care for their traffic and low competition, you should start to see some good results after another 20 or so.

          First of all thank you so much for your feedback.
          Should I change MFP image? Should I keep only one image with the title written in the center? Will it work?
          Yes, correct that could be the reason for the food hub as they do not come under healthy food.

          Ohh is it? then what should I keep the title? Look I am getting following as per Google Suggest.
          - How to grow grapes in your backyard
          - Growing grapes at home
          - How to Grow Grapes

          You are right. No one is searching for Baked Sweet Potato Wedges or Fries as I am hardly getting any view for it.

          Ohhhh really? How do you measure that there is a tons of competition for this topic? What should I do now?

          Yeah, sure I will consider your advice for the future hubs.
          Just let me know how to check the low competition fo the particular topic then I would start doing that.

          Thank you so much WryLilt.

    Yes exactly, Google suggest is not telling us the number of searches for a keyword or phrase.

    1. WryLilt profile image90
      WryLiltposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Neither does the Google keyword tool. It's really inaccurate, can be out by hundreds or thousands and often completely misses good keywords (especially longtail ones). The Google keyword tool is designed for ADVERTISERS, not publishers, so it doesn't place huge importance on accuracy for writers.

      The Google suggestions are based on real searches, which means they are being searched by real people.

      Here's a great article by Moz on the many pitfalls of using the Google keyword tool and trusting its results.

    I thought the point is you get indications from Google suggest of what "key word phrases" might work

    I then put the suggested terms into Google and note:
    1) the number of results that term generates (eg 293,000,000 results for "Google Suggests")
    2) what type of website comes up for that term to see if they are ones I want to be in the company of / want to try and beat

    I usually work with a few suggestions until I've worked out the one that gives enough results to know people are searching and not so many that the competition is going to be stiff.

    I then monitor actual queries generating traffic for the site via different stats software to see if I'm missing anything.

    Seems to have worked so far!
