In this lesson you’ll learn how to uncover large keyword lists, how to uncover more fruitful keywords, and which free and paid keyword research tools are the best.

This is a lesson in full general keyword research. The information here applies to both pay-per-click keywords and to natural search engine listings.

You don’t need to use all the tools I mention here in your own research. If you’re just starting out and not earning much yet, you’ll probably be fine with the keyword research tool in Traffic Travis, or one of the following free keyword tools:

  • The free Wordtracker keyword tool
  • The Google Adwords free keyword tool

Traffic Travis

You can download this free seo software or pro seo software from

Using the keyword viewfinder tool, you can quickly carry out essential research.

The tool searches and collates data from Yahoo,, Wordtracker and the Google networks so that you end up with a large hail of keywords related to word or phrase that you entered into the search box.

You can also view how often each keyword is searched for in each of the data seeds.

The keyword finder is an excellent tool for researching related words and scrutinizing the popularity of search terms.

Let’s take a look at an example:

I’m going to type in the term ‘scrapbooking’ and prime(a) the keyword sources that I wish to crawl.

Within seconds, Keyword Finder gives me a large number of relevant keywords and it also shows how popular the word is in each search engine, listing the daily search count for each word.


Let me wrap up this snapshot of the Traffic Travis Keyword Finder by giving you a couple of ways to use it to your advantage:

  • Use the Keyword Finder to search for popular products to promote. Keywords or keyword phrases searched more than 5,000 times a day in Google indicate a healthy market. Phrases searched more than 10,000 times a day in Google indicate a very cogent market.
  • You can also use the Keyword Finder to build keyword lists for your pay-per-click campaigns, exclusively by selecting the keywords you wish to use and moving them to protected. Then open up the Keyword sorter and piece them into related groups. Traffic Travis contains tutorial videos on both the Keyword Finder and the Keyword Sorter so give these a whirl to learn more.

While the Traffic Travis keyword finder tool is first rate, it’s significant not to rely on a single source for keywords, as each source gets their results from another(a) sources. Plus, some tools remove plurals and others correct misspellings, which skews your data.
