Best tool to research blog post topic

Hi,

I need your help

I want to write an article on an issue but I am not sure what topic to choose.

How can I get a report of real search phrases vs how often it was searched for?

I want to pick long tail keyword with low competition that I could rank #1 for

I am aware of google adwords keyword planner but it just doesn't give accurate results. any other tool I could use?

thanks

blimey, this is a very broad question.

take a look at google trends.

Look at what is trending on twitter etc.

All i would say is that what's on trend right now more than likely won't be by the time you've posted. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

I think you are either brainwashed by what you hear and read on the internet, or are looking for some short-cut to fame and $$.

Either way, you are going about it wrong. I understand what you are trying to do, but if I were you, I'd write about topics that you are familiar about, or maybe even a specialist in, rather than searching for keywords and then try to rank for them.

I think you misunderstood me.

I know the area I would like to write about - say 'latest trends in eCommerce'. I am familiar with eCommerce no worries about it at all.

I just want to pick a topic ppl are searching for BUT something that has low competition so that I could rank #1 for it and receive all user traffic.

how is that broad?

I asked specifically for a tool that gives me 'search phrase' vs 'number of times it was searched for'.

like keyword tool

very specific question if you ask me

"I want to write an article on an issue but I am not sure what topic to choose. "

That's how it's broad.

Sorry for trying to help.

Unsubscribed.

topic is irrelevant.

did you use adwords keyword planner? you can get keyword ideas for any topic you pick.

think of it as a google suggest - you type in words it gives you complete phrases people are searching for.

i was just asking if anybody could recommend such an online tool (free or paid).

I would recommend you to buy some paid tools like buzzsumo, ahrefs, & long tail pro because these are the best tools to tell the real time searches.

In Free Google Trends is the best tool.

All The Best!!!

thanks I am using ahrefs, ahrefs is good but $99/mo makes me think of an alternative.

let me check long tail pro and the other tool you suggested and I'll get back to you.

Keyword planner + Ahrefs + your thinking

The best way which I suggest to my clients is to search for some low and medium competition keywords using keyword planner, ahrefs and then create a theme of topics related to those keywords. This works like a charm.

To search the keyword the best tool is keyword planner in which you can search low, medium competition keywords. Else the question that is asked is quite deep to be answered and need more clear question about it.

Possibly, but that's not what I'm thinking. I think I spend way too much time on this forum. Although, not a bad place to take a break and get a chuckle or two.

Keywords you use in your article should be two phrase or three according to your keywords you need to select a topic and write an article. Long tail keywords start with HOW and What so you should search for long tail keyword in google then you can find some sites with exact title. You can target those title and give competition to that website.

This is complete nonsense. "Long tail keywords start with HOW", who told you this?

I can't even be bothered to pick apart the rest.

Hi,

As you are already aware of Google Keyword Planner, another tool which i can suggest you is keywordtool.io, it generates the Google long-tail keywords as well as short tail keywords which extracts queries searched by the users. You may also have an option to select the country you wish to target.

Alternatively you can use Google itself, by typing few words & getting the Auto-Complete suggestions from Google. At the end of the search results, you can find other searched terms, related to your search query.

Hope it helps.

OP didn't ask for a keyword tool.

Even if he had, your post doesn't give examples of how/why it provided you with good results. So its basically hearsay.

thank you, just checked, keywordtool.io costs $68/mo with search volumn function on. that is better than ahrefs.

I might try it.

a little off-topic but I was wondering how they collect search volume information? why is that not available for free by google itself?
