Increase Your List Building Results With The Google Keyword Tool

Starting any Marketing campaign is useless if you do not do the proper marketing research. Don't waste time trying to create a market when you can market to one that already exists. Google Adwords Keyword tool costs nothing and out performs any tool on the market.

The key mistake made by most unsuccessful marketers is the lack of, abuse of or improper use of keywords in their articles, Pay Per Click (PPC) campaigns and on their landingpage. If the keywords in your PPC campaigns, do not rank well, don't match your product, and are not relevant to your landing page you may end up with less than successful marketing results.

Keywords: words and or phrases that search engines record when users do a search. The more a keyword or phrase has been searched on is the first indication of its quality.

It's important that you understand the value and how to properly use keywords and phrases in marketing and how it relates to not only finding a market but also products relevant to that market.

There are hundreds maybe thousands of products on the market that claim to give you the best keyword and keyword phrases in any market.

Please create a Google account if you already have not.

Since 80% of the worlds Keyword Traffic goes through Google it's a no brainer to use the Google keyword suggestion tool. (and it costs nothing!)

Go to: [].

  1. Select "descriptive words or phrases" on the left,

  2. check "use synonyms" in the center,

  3. type the word "stress" in the box above,

  4. type in the correct security letters,

  5. click "Get keyword ideas".

"Approximate search volume" shows how many times your keyword or phrase was searched on for the previous month. This information sometimes runs in line with the "Approximate average search volume" which shows the searches for the last 12 months. "Advertiser competition" means just that, how many websites are using these keywords or phrases.

It's not uncommon to find a keyword or phrase with high search volume and low competition. Finding these types of keywords can be the start to a Successful Marketing campaign. On the other hand, if done correctly you can successfully compete using a highly competitive list of keywords.

To view how Google rates your competition, go to: and type "stress" in the Google search bar. At the time I wrote this article was second in the list of websites competing for the keyword "stress".
