Google Wonder Wheel

  • Google Wonder Wheel

Google Wonder WheelThere’s a new tool you can use to home in on Long Tailed Keywords (LTK’s) it is called the Google Wonder Wheel. To find it, do a normal search, then click the Web+Show Options link to expand the option menu. Go down to the Standard view Menu, and click Wonder Wheel.

  • Related Search Terms

The wonder wheel layout is like a kind of Mind Map of the “Related Search” terms for your primary search. Each spoke of the wheel gives a high ranked search term that is directly related.  We SEO types call these related terms Long Tailed Keywords (LTK’s).

  • Google Adwords Keyword Tool

Click each of these spokes, and run any likely looking terms thru the Google Adwords Keyword Tool (with the language and country set  correctly). Note any high scoring searches. My basic SEO keyword has 6,100 searches globally pcm, but the  LTK’s I found had a combined value of 80,000 searches.  So, in a matter of minutes I had found 8 very promising LTK’s, all closely related to the prime KW, and all very prone to bring lots of search traffic.

  • How to Find Long Tailed Keywords:

Using the Google Wonder Wheel is a fast and effective way to find LTK’s, if you combine it with the Adwords Keyword Tool. You really do kill several birds with one stone doing this. By combining these “related Search Terms” in your post you are making the work more authorative, you are providing coherent keyword use, and building traffic as well! This works even more effectively if you post separately using the LTK’s and cross link the posts.

  3. Good tips. Analyzing related search terms is a great way to uncover profitable long tail keywords. Although your main target keyword may have high search volume, you should not ignore long tails. As with the example above, those long tail keywords can add up to a substantial amount of traffic.

  4. sounds good off to try it now

  8. Approximately 40% of people that arrive at my site come from these types of keywords, which to me is particularly interesting, however it is difficult to optimise your site for them….

    That is the key to cashing in, to grab that 40% that arrive. You have a site/theme keyword, and every post you write is built around a long tail keyword derived from that, thus building the authority for the site – it is synergistic! That plus properly linked keywords (keyword coherence) gives your whole site a strong dynamic. I disagree, it is not difficult, it is dead easy to do the above!

  12. Its a nice list, with a few of the best tools for finding long tail keywords. Long tail keywords can really be extremely effective! In a lot of SEM strategies, they are really the effective and cheap way to go, both regarding normal SEO and paid clicks like AdWords.

  13. Mark says:

    I still find myself confuse with this google wonder wheel. Do you really make use of it? Cause other people keep on telling that they don’t see this as an useful tool that can really use for their long tailed keyword research.

  14. Rhys says:

    @Mark –

    The key to it is in this sentence: “Click each of these spokes, and run any likely looking terms thru the Google Adwords Keyword Tool”.
    I didn’t get all those good terms from the WW itself, but when I entered their “Suggested” terms into the Adword Tool. That is where the real gold is, because you can easily see the ranking of each suggestion and its LTKs.

  15. Google Wonder Wheel is very good way for keyword research, it gives you a lot related niches.

    and Related Search Terms i use for getting ideas for content in my niche.

  16. Well the other day my friend was on google images and he pressed something and he got this one cool wheel type thing and tall the pictures were spinning in a wheel. No it is not the wonder wheel. It was on IMAGES and all the pictures were in like a wheel.

  17. Wonderwheel will become very important source for SEO’s in the future. Because most of the time, searchers don’t get what they are looking for and click at suggestions given by Google. So, it is important that our site must be optimized for the related keywords. I use Google adward to find related keyword and optimize my site according to it.

  18. used tires says:

    I love the fact that Google is expanding the tools for us Webmasters to use, especially since the Data comes straight from Google! 😀

    Till then,


  19. Wonder wheel is a great tool. I have been using it for a while now and it has helped my quite a few times in my keyword research.

    I was first introduced to it by Howie in one of his free videos.

  25. This is useful to know. When you build up a site you want to get traffic primarily to your main keyword but before you rank high for that, you may discover that you get many visitors from LTKs instead! This wonder wheel sounds great in this matter, I’ll try it out.

    Tks very much for this information. Or this tool is brand new, or I am really lost in time.

  29. TDAH says:

    Thats a great tip! I search google every single day and never noticed the “show more options” menu, it doen not only have the wonder whell but you could also look for webpages with your search terms and see only the new ones, withing 24hs for example, or news, or blogs, or even pictures of the actual website on the side of your search term. I believe it’s a good tool if used with adwords keyword tool like the author said. Thanks for the tip again

    wonderwheel helps you in bringing down your competitors by giving the keywords that link to them besides the keyword that you typed. It is a major difference between adwords and wonderwheel.

  38. Sue says:

    I like this bit of information. I use this but, I also mix and match the keywords. Like if I am looking for coffee makers, I add electric coffee makers, single cup coffee makers or electric single cup coffee makers. It really works great and I am able to write a lot of articles on the subject.

    Those “Long-tailed” keywords that you are talking about are the icing on the cake and are a terrific source of ‘site synergy’!
