Step #1: Access Google Keyword Planner

Keyword Planner is a free tool. To use the Google Keyword Planner, you should have a Google Ads account. If you don’t have an Adword account, you can set it up in a few minutes. When it comes to SEO-focused keywords, these two tools are sufficient to create thousands of potential keywords. This tool is designed with PPC (pay per click) advertisers. So there are a lot of characteristics in the tool (like keyword bidding, ad impression features) that are very useful if you’re using this tool to find keywords for SEO.

 It’s time to see how to find SEO keywords using each of the tools created in the GKP.

Step #2: Choose Your Tool

There are two main tools in GKP. These two tools will help you in creating a list of keywords for your SEO campaigns.

1. Discover New Keywords

Like the name, this tool is for finding new keywords. Firstly you have to enter products or services closely related to your business. Then the value you get from the Keyword Planner is based on the information that you entered. So you should have to be strategic about what you enter into this field.

 You can enter multiple keywords in it. Just put a comma after each keyword and then press enter. For example, if you run an e-commerce site that sells shoes, you’d enter terms like “Formal shoes” and “Running shoes” here.

Once you will entered your information into it, then click on “Get Results”.

After that, you’ll see the Keywords Results Page.

 Let’s dive into the second tool of GKP that is search volume and forecasts.

2. Get search volume and forecasts for your keywords

This sub-tool is useful when you already have a list of keywords… and just want to check their search volume. In other words, this tool will not help you to create new keyword ideas.

To use it, copy and paste a list of keywords you have created, into the search field, and click on “Get Started”.

You’ll get the same Keywords Results Page as you have in the “Find new keywords” tool.

The difference is that you will get only data on the keywords you entered and Google will show how many clicks and impressions you’ll get from the keywords you entered in it.

This shows how much an advertiser expects to pay for their ad to appear at the top of the page for that keyword.

(This is called “Cost Per Click” or “CPC”) . It has two criteria “high range” and “low range”.

Organic Impression Share

This is how frequently your site appears in the organic results for each keyword.

Organic Average Position
