Oftentimes, when a brand is running a large media campaign, consumers will turn to search engines to learn more about the products they are exposed to on other media channels, such as television. This article walks you through several examples of how to produce these types of analyses and the value they provide.
Companies such as Millward Brown and Nielsen tend to measure TV impact by GRPs (gross rating points = reach x frequency).
Because TV remains the largest area of investment, we are commonly asked by brands to associate search fluctuations with GRPs and consumer interest. Personally, I do all of this through Google AdWords & Trends API in KNIME, but it can be done manually with the other tools, as follows. Use Google Trends for the same keywords and get an export of the past two years with weekly indexed values. Now, format the Month value from Google Keyword Planner into the corresponding Sunday-Saturday weekly buckets provided by Google Trends. Clean, merge, aggregate and scale the data so that each index value represents the correct percentage of search volume for that given week. By using the location filtering abilities in the Keyword Planner tool, you can leverage consumer queries by DMA (Nielsen’s 210 DMAs), state or city. Through the Keyword Planner UI, you need to export each DMA individually to get unique data per market area.
Again, I personally use KNIME and APIs, which I recommend to anyone interested in doing this efficiently, as you can loop calls to the API for each of the 210 DMAs instead of manually changing it through the Keyword Planner UI. Once you acquire the dataset, you can merge it with additional information such as DMA population, TV households, cable households, longitude, latitude and so on, which enriches your ability to compare volumes to potential TV watchers (Nielsen Numbers).
It is also possible to convert your DMA monthly data to weekly stats, using the top metro index numbers from Google Trends for each of your keywords.
To get the ultimate modeling set, you need to join the DMA monthly data with your search campaign data. You should pair these data to your actual spend data by keyword by DMA by week, which is available to be exported through the Google AdWords API. Because our brands were running new national commercials in October, they wanted to know the elevation in brand interest. Considering this was a national TV buy running in October, and our change was positive in most regions, it would appear the commercial generated additional interest in major markets but failed to influence some smaller markets in Arizona, Maine and Kentucky. Of course, in relation to TV, we are making assumptions, so I recommend looking at search traffic to your website by minute (or second, if you have the proper analytics) and comparing it to TV spots bought by location. Similarly, looking at interest over time by state while scaling active internet user population can provide great competitor comparisons.
In this case, Michigan and New York have the highest search averages per internet user for the Pepsi brand. When looking at volume, competition, and CPC together, there isn’t a strong correlation among the three, meaning that search engine marketers no longer build campaigns with a holistic US mindset. Regardless, these are only a few examples, and you can get very creative with the way you leverage keyword themes and locations, so if haven’t already, start exploring! Some opinions expressed in this article may be those of a guest author and not necessarily Search Engine Land. Wordtracker does not tokenize plural words into their singular versions, so you get to see volumes for both singular and plural to know which is more popular. Recommendation: If you don't mind investing a couple bucks into in-depth keyword research, make sure you try the paid version of Wordtracker with all the added features and benefits they offer.
I know Wordtracker offers a UK specific tool inside their paid service, but I am not sure if that is available yet in their API. It's a great tool and it's certainly refreshing that we don't have to get the fopen() error anymore. Is there any chance you could offer a legacy version of your old tool so we can pull the data from Overture for the foreign markets?

I know that Bing and Yahoo search are used significantly less than Google, but Bing keyword tool can still provide a few ideas for keywords and it is free to use. Despite Google’s dominance, Bing and Yahoo (which uses Bing search for its results) still get significant traffic. Considering that Bing still has millions of users, if a keyword doesn’t get enough data to show up in Bing’s data, is it even worth targeting?

What makes it better than Ubersuggest is that it goes deeper by trying out other combinations.
1) Keyword suggestions from 9 search engines including Amazon, Answer, Ask, Bing, Ebay, Google, Wild, Yahoo and YouTube.

Another idea is to go to other blogs and websites in your niche and see what they are writing about, especially if you know that they do SEO on their sites. Old Made for Adsense (MFA) sites are particularly good sources and I have scoured these sites for ideas for my own sites, especially ones that were created before 2011. Older MFA sites had the keywords blatantly displayed in the navigation links and as page titles. If you have older websites that have been around for awhile, take a look at older Analytics data before when Google started to conceal data with encrypted search. You can also use Google Trends to see if searches for those keyword phrases are declining, increasing, or remaining steady.
Keyword Spy is a tool that you can use to do keyword research or to see a competitor’s free and paid keywords.
Spu Fu is another competitive research tool that shows keyword ideas as well as competitor keywords. The Screaming Frog SEO spider can crawl websites and see what keywords are being used in the title tag and meta fields.

Looking up keywords in the dictionary can also reveal related keyword phrases and concepts. Tellagence Discover is an enterprise level tool that can gather data from Twitter and analyzes the language to find the top themes. Another overlooked opportunity for getting real keywords is to simply survey your audience. Using internal site search can also be a good method of keyword analysis if your site has a lot of traffic, as this data is information that you can access.
If you are creating a ton of content or have a large site, then analyzing traffic to website URL’s can be highly beneficial.
For advanced Analytics users, you can use filters to get back some keyword not provided data.
Watching conference presentations or viewing Slideshare Powerpoints can be a good way to find more phrases to target.

Verve Search is an award-winning international SEO and Creative Content Marketing agency based in South West London. We are committed to growing our clients’ ROI through industry-leading search campaigns, driven by our thirst for knowledge and genuine love for what we do. They are direct and straight to the point, which allows us to concentrate on what really works. A marketer can gain valuable insights by analyzing the correlations between media campaigns and the fluctuations in relevant search activity. To do this, we look at several things, including the general increase of interest and the incremental traffic absorbed by the brand’s digital properties. Because it is time-intensive to pull and clean all of the data, I use the KNIME and the Google Trends API to streamline the process; however, it can be done manually with no APIs.
With Google’s API and access to the TargetingIdeaService, a lot of targeting information can be pulled far more easily.
However, you will need to rotate each Sunday-to-Saturday date range and call the API for each, as the Top Metro data is not naturally returned by week. As an example (one I had readily available), this is an analysis for a specific regional buy, showing the spikes associated with TV when pairing up the timing, both for organic search (blue) and paid search (pink). There is a lot more to this, and I will write a follow-up on it specifically, but I just wanted to show it is possible, and a real relationship can be identified. In this example, of the five soda brands, Pepsi essentially dominates the US interest, with a few exceptions throughout the year, and Dr.
Similar visuals are available through the Google Trends tool, but it can be much harder to get data for a large set of keywords or keyword themes. You should work closely with brand teams to understand where they are losing or gaining market share, and overload and decrease spend accordingly. Search Marketing offers a developer API, but given how rough their transition away from their old keyword tool was, I would much rather use a reliable market leading tool like Wordtracker. I don't know if I am doing something wrong but whenever I make a "Simple Search", I end up having a lot of keywords that don't have anything to do with the original topic. Don't know if you mentioned it but Wordtracker seems to distinguish between lower case and upper case as well! I also have a paid subscription to wordtracker but for some reason I end up using your tool more. The original post contained around 60 keyword tools and ideas, but the updated post now contains over 100. In fact, I was able to increase traffic to this blog by 1,380% in 2014, even though I only created 10 blog posts. They will most likely always display high volume keywords so that Adwords advertisers will be able to target them.
A good way to find possible related search terms, although sometimes the terms shown are not related. Yahoo and Bing do still get significant search volume (25-29% of search volume according to Comscore in 2013) and it does provide real data from organic search so it is worth looking at. Enough so that it can provide real and useful keyword data, particularly for terms that have enough volume to be worth targeting. I like that this tool uses Excel, since Excel is something that pretty much everyone knows how to use. The free version of the tool provides just a few keywords, but the paid version provides a lot more. It was designed to me more of an all in one SEO tool and can find competitors by keywords and analyze their keyword usage. The updated Colibri tool can crawl your website for keyword ideas and also compare you to your competitors.
It also has some competitive analysis features and a brainstorming tool to come upwith new ideas. Simply come up with a question or query, send the URL to your list, and watch your keyword list grow as they add keywords to the list.
Phrases that are easier to rank for are marked with a green color and difficult phrase are red, enabling you to target low competition, high volume phrases. Asides from revealing lots of long tail keywords, this tool calculates keyword difficulty score and locates keywords that are easy to rank for.


It also displays Google trends chart  along with sites currently ranking for the term along with social counts and other useful data. The Keyword Finder identifies the top 10 competitors ranking for your keyword phrase and extracts other long tail keywords from the pages that are currently ranking. The video on their landing page was created in February 2015 and explains some of the features. Even when Google Keyword Tool was still providing a lot of data, I was still using Google keyword suggestions to generate content ideas because it provided way more keywords than the keyword tool. Adds 1-2 letters of the alphabet after each keyword phrase and 1-2 letters before the phrase and scrapes the keywords into a file. Another nice feature is that related keywords are listed on the left side that you can click on for more specific keyword phrases. One unique feature is that it also displays the information both visually and alphabetically.
What I like about this tool is that it also reveals search volume and CPC cost, unlike most keyword suggestion tools. The new version of Market Samurai uses exact match search with Keyword Planner so it might not be an alternative but rather a tool that makes using Keyword Planner more convenient.
The home page says that it uses Google Keyword Tool though, so not sure if it’s up to date.
It has a keyword generator that does keyword suggestions from the 3 major search engines, can import adwords data, and can even suggest exact match domain names with your keywords in it. It also has trend analysis that shows which keywords are rising in popularity over time and regional keywords.
I usually find a few ideas that I overlooked through traditional keyword research when I look through other websites.
Sometimes you will have to look further than the first couple of pages in Google to find these sites as many are no longer ranking well in Google.
Although this tool was meant to identify technical issues on your own site, it can also be used for competitive keyword research. You can copy and paste keywords into the text box or simply select the Web Page URL field and enter the URL there.
Some of the features are a bit technical, but you can click on the keyword tab to get a summary of keywords used on the page.
It also accesses Wordtracker’s large keyword database to display other keyword insights.
Another great feature of HitTail is that it also suggests keyword topics that you should write about based on what keywords are currently bringing you traffic.
With Compete Pro, you can see what keywords your competitors are targeting as well as projected keyword volumes. One nice feature is that it can be white labeled for agencies wanting to resell the product.
It currently uses only US data which is updated monthly and gets its info by crawling Amazon. You can enter an ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) and generate a list of keywords that way too. This service also allows you to monitor position rankings for not only your own product, but to view movement in the other items too.
Asides from providing suggested keywords to integrate into your content, this tool provides an overall SEO score for your content and suggestions to improve it.
Choose 3 keywords per post that you want to optimize for and it will analyze keyword density as well as suggest related keywords. Give keyword suggestions from Google, Yahoo and Bing without having to leave your WordPress site. LSI and related keywords should be incorporated as well so that your articles don’t look like they are keyword stuffed. I won’t pretend to even begin to understand what all the fields in this tool do, but play around with the searches and you will find some keywords.
This tool can be downloaded for free and you can enter URL’s of content you want to analyze and even write content in it while it matches your content up to LSI keywords and phrases. The completed search gives a good bit of data including LSI keywords, keyword tag cloud, top websites ranking for your search term, title tags and meta descriptions from top sites, and related images and forums.
After you add your keywords to BoostSuite, it will analyze them and rank them based on opportunity (low competition & med-high monthly search volume) and number of conversions from organic search visitors for each.
Asides from keyword research, it also tracks SEO effectiveness and social media reach as well as rankings.
Already Coded has created an archive of php keyword tools that you can purchase and add to your own site.
Although the cost is expensive, this tool can surface keywords that are being used by your target customers and allow you to write in the language that they are using on social media. As Google continues moving towards better serving conversational search, this can be a good way to come up for keywords that might not show up in other tools. Basically, you look at the URL’s that are getting the most search traffic and then take any keywords from those pages and plug them into your keyword tool of choice. A study that they showcased on their site shows how adding relevant keywords can increase search traffic.
Sometimes, for example, people will reword the default wording of your tweets and pins or add their own hash tags.
Headlines can be good inspiration and a source for keywords, especially if you see the same terms repeated in various articles.
Also, when searching for domains, it also suggests alternate domain names if the one you want is taken, which can provide other keyword ideas. Our ethos is honesty, transparency and accountability, providing a no fuss, straight-talking service.
We also speak more than 14 languages between us, which puts us in the position of being able to support your business on an international scale. It is a pleasure working with such a reliable and proactive team that truly cares about our business results. I really appreciate their capacity of listening and understanding our needs and quickly act upon them.
From Best Practice Guides to articles on "how to", you can find it all in the Verve Search Knowledge Bank. Modeling often requires two or three years of data to ensure that seasonality and other statistical noise can be accounted for. But with a little ingenuity, you can get free, fairly accurate weekly search volumes by using Google Keyword Planner and Google Trends. For state information, the entire process is identical, except the API variables are State and not DMA or Top Metro. Keep in mind, depending on the size of your campaigns and the time frame (with two years minimum being recommended), the file size will far exceed the limits of Excel and must be handled by a more powerful program such as SAS, R or KNIME.
Now it’s time to blend the data together with all other media channels and sales information and create an ensemble of linear regression models to correlate all media activity with total sales. Executing at a keyword and DMA level may seem daunting, but it’s not if you assemble rules through AdWords scripting. He currently is responsible for running the data and insights practice for search and social marketing. On the downside it becomes apparent that a few keywords I've been targeting have significantly lower search volume than they had on your old system. Google keyword tool was the top keyword research tool because it provided data straight from Google. Many keywords are no longer showing in Google Analytics and many people have complained that Google keyword planner shows very little if any long tail keyword data. Some useful information includes monthly traffic, demographics data, and other useful information.
Simply enter your competitor’s website (or your own) to see a list of keywords they are ranking for. Keyword data is aggregated from internet service providers, browser tools and search engines and then statistically analyzed, so Wordstream maintains their own database. The paid version will allow you to do more than 5 searches a day and get more than 1,000 keywords per search. Other data provided includes estimated Adsense earnings, competitor Adwords data and traffic volume estimates. A great way to brainstorm with a group of people and come up with phrases that people will naturally search for. This software comes with a free trial and there are several instructional videos, screenshots and tutorials on their page. This tool is targeted to finding keywords for local, so check it out if you are doing local SEO. The Bright Edge Data Cube accesses and analyzes data from around the web on a daily basis so that its data is up to date. With their keyword suggestion tool, you can choose which Amazon keywords to track and which country. It will then help you assign these high-opportunity keywords to your new and existing content to optimize it. Some tools include long tail keyword research tool, Ebay keyword tool, Amazon tool and more. To get even more ideas, get a team together and create a database of keyword ideas that all team members can contribute to. Pay attention to if all the domain extensions are purchased (including less popular ones) and how much people are trying to sell the domain names for (if they aren’t in use) as this can be an indicator or competitiveness and keyword value.
The Verve Search team are very imaginative, coming up with innovative ideas and projects that have had a great impact on our organic rankings.
