Google Suggest Search Volume?
« on: January 16, 2017, 11:31:14 PM »
Times were there were some Google Suggest (Gs) keyword tools that also return Gs search volume. I've been doing some searching and there still seem to be a number of Gs tools out there but alas without the search volume? Anyone know of any?

Thanks,
Woz

I've been using keywordtool.io as mentioned above for months and it's good.

It still suffers from the shared-volume problem, ie 'pamper party' and 'pamper parties' both have 2400 volume, wheras in reality the 2400 ois shared between the two and you don't know the exact numbers for both without creating an ad campaign and jumping through hoops. But you can tell which one has the lion's share by typing into G and seeing which is first to autocomplete.

grepwords.com is another one. It's by by Russ Virante, who I have a lot of time for and although he is now at Moz, is truly a brilliant technical mind in our industry.

All the ones mentioned above, as well as Grepwords take their data from scraping Adwords... That's now been severely restricted and as such the data view is much harder to liberate and in time the prices will go out of sync.

My view is to work with one DB and treat it as a snapshot in time. Prices may change on an individual keyword basis but overall the prices will remain relative to each other.

A final choice, if you're prepared to pay and get all the data in one go is Xedant / Pastukhov - It's not "low cost" but is is pretty comprehensive.

Thanks all, I have what I need. This wasn't for a web project, but researching the relative interest between three disciplines for a paper I'm writing. So detailed accuracy wasn't important, rather I was just after ballpark ratios.

Google Trends can be a rough but useful tool for that. Compare some search terms and the visuals will give you a general idea of which gets more activity. No exact numbers, though.

I did this a few days ago when deciding how to name and organize some directories.

Google Trends

Always. And if it's an even more traditional topic and you're looking fr longer time spans and trends and more of a "high culture" read, Google Ngrams

Remember that it only brings you up to 2008, so it's only for very broad cultural trends.  But, for example, if you're doing stuff with travel

https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=hotel%2Cmotel&year_start=1990&year_end=2015&corpus=15&smoothing=3&share=&direct_url=t1%3B%2Chotel%3B%2Cc0%3B.t1%3B%2Cmotel%3B%2Cc0

Or, if you're just the kind of person who likes to depress yourselves and accumulate negative evidence on where our culture is moving...
