Feature Enhancement Suggestion
« on: June 15, 2010, 02:37:51 PM »
This is a great-looking piece of software, Jonathan.

Could you add the ability to add our own search queries?  Like for instance, I may want to do the following:

Add "ways to " before the keyword/keyphrase, or
Add "how to " before the keyword/keyphrase, or
Add "Where can I buy " before the keyword/keyphrase
..etc (unlimited amount of these should be able to be added)

And be able to save these query setups as profiles, so I can run them whenever I want.

Is it possible to add this?

Thanks!
Doug

If we could create our own setups of queries, we could create sets that could be used for specific things.  Like for instance, a setup to be used to find buyer keywords could be as follows:

"lowest prices on " keyword/keyphrase
"best price for "  keyword/keyphrase
"[a zip code or region]" keyword/keyphrase
"ladies size 2 "  keyword/keyphrase

In fact, it would be very cool to be able to (selectively) upload these lists and create a library of them.  That way we could collectively contribute ideas that could be shared by everyone, which would improve the tool and make for happier customers.

If these could be imported and exported as plain ASCII text files, these lists of keywords could then be used in other software apps, perhaps like MNF or Keyword Samurai.

Presumably we could already do this? Jon used "Old Time Radio" as his search term, so I assume we could add that in? If not, I agree, that would be an excellent add-on to what looks like a very useful tool. I have manually done searches of Google using such terms as you suggest and it is VERY time consuming and I can also see now from the video why I didn't get as many results as I thought I might. The use of profiles would also be very handy.  ;D

Great idea. I have a few terms I would be willing to contribute.  ;D

I'd like to contribute some as well!  And it would fit in well with how Jonathan makes his apps; distributive computing, sort of like Niche Horde... Hope J. Leger sees this thread and comments.

Hi Jon

Thanks for this addition to your line of useful tools.

The relative popularity index is good to know. However, there seems to be a need to know the search volume for each keyword. Here are a few reasons:
(1) A significant number of keywords have very low search volume, thus producing low traffic. So targeting them can be a waste of time.
(2) Similarly a significant number of keywords are unique in that they are  searched for only once or a very few times and never again. Likely Google wouldn't 'suggest' keywords in this category.(Maybe?)

If these additional(new) keywords from your tool were entered into the Adwords tool, would Google return a search volume for them even though they would not supply these keywiords in the first place?

Why not just go the extra step and provide not only the search volume but also the search competition as part of your generated keyword list? Afterall this is essential information in doing keyword research. No sense in leaving out this laborious piece of the puzzle.

Indeed the output from the Adwords tool is great looking. (Global and local search volume, competition, CPC estimate, etc)  The only problem is that their keyword list is incomplete! It would be good to have the same output but with the larger pool of keywords your tool provides. Is that practical to implement?

Thanks

Tony

Tony:

The search counts might look great from the AdWords tool, but I've been testing the actual numbers and, especially with smaller niche keywords, they're bogus.  So what good would it do to show you bogus search data alongside the keywords?

I might as well just have a random number generator throw up values and stuff them in the column.  They'd be just as reliable. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I think you get the point. :D

Jon:

Why not include the "actual numbers" then, and not the unreliable search counts from the AdWords tool?

What are you using to get those "actual numbers"?

No comment on my suggestions?   ???

Jon

you were telling search count by adwords keyword tool is bogus.

My question is your keyword tool snatches keywords from google suggest tool, what if the google suggest keywords are also bogus like google adwords tool.

I need more example or more screenshots of the research you made about adwords keyword tool with regard to search count.

The actual figures come from ranking sites in Google and from using AdWords to test keyword volumes.  There's no tool that delivers the actual numbers, so there's no way to include that in the app.  You just have to test them to know yourself.
