Finding the right keywords that match your customers mindset is the goal of any AdWords or SEO campaign.
As a Google Certified Company the AdWords Keyword Tool is the application we use on a daily basis to research and manage campaigns for our clients.
Using The AdWords Keyword Tool
- When you first use the tool it helps if you log into a Google account e.g. gmail, to get the full functionality and not have to worry about the getting the captcha code right each time you run a keyword search.
- Make sure you set the Location to Australia as the default may be set to the US.
- You can enter multiple keywords variations at the one time in the keyword search box.
- You can get the search volume for phrase and exact match for your search terms. I like to check phrase match and exact match (on the left hand side panel) as it gives me better indication of the number of highly qualified searches.
- You cam customise the report to show approximate Cost Per Click (CPC). Emphasis on approximate as actually click cost can be different and often lower in a professional run campaign. Make sure to change the default to Aussie dollars at the top of the application.
- Seasonal trends may also shown for each keyword.
- When you look at the results you want to look at the column tilted “‘Local Monthly Searches” for Australian search volume in the proceeding month.
