There are loads of different free Keyword research tools that you can use to ensure that your website is populated with the correct content to get you ranking highly.
These tools, if used in tandem with each other can be used to create quite a substantial amount of keyword research, and will give you a much better chance at ranking highly. Because these tools are free, they are very selective in the metrics they give, so using multiple tools is the best way to get a more holistic view of your site.
- Google Trends
Google Trends can allow you to see what queries and topics are being searched in relation to a keyphrase. When I type in ‘UK Architect’ at the time of writing this, related topics are: ‘Computer Aided Design’, ‘Infrastructure’, and ‘Computer Science’. This search also yields related queries. Such as ‘Ancestry UK’, and ‘What Qualifications do I need to be an architect?’.
A bunch of these related keyphrases and topics can be extremely useful to you. As it can allow you to ride a trend. With these topics and search queries, best practice would be to write something that ticks as many of these boxes as possible. For example, A blog titled ‘What qualifications do I need to become an architect in the UK?’, in which some h2 subheadings are about some of the things you’d need to learn: ‘Getting started with Computer Aided Design (CAD)’, and ‘Learning about Infrastructure’.
- Keywords Everywhere
