What are the benefits of using Google Search Console?
console you can see the performance for your website you can see how many total web search clicks you've had so this is over the last three months if we click on open report here we can come into performance and you can find total clicks total impressions average click-through rate and average position in Google you could see the search queries that are actually driving clicks and impressions to your website and it will give you a lot of different ideas for some of the keywords that you can optimize for that you're already ranking for the other thing that you can do is if we click on pages here you can see some of your top pages in search results so let's just say we find something with a lot of impressions that might not have a lot of clicks here so we have category betting in comforter sets maybe something like wooden beef signs here if we click on this individual page we come down we click on search queries for this individual page so you could always just enter new here enter page and find all the different search terms that are actually driving traffic to that page and find some areas where you might be able to improve so beach signs beach signs decor so different ways that you can improve your website and it's really one of the best ways to continuously drive more traffic to your website you can also look up some of these different search terms by using the keyword planner using ubersuggest or even using search volume i oh so you export this list of keywords and you can look up search volume pretty easily especially if you're looking at it for your entire website so if you're looking at which search terms are driving the most impressions or clicked through your website and search terms that are getting a ton of search volume so you can really understand where you can optimize your website to continuously improve the traffic that you're driving to your website and ultimately what you want to do is find some of these keywords and some of these search terms that have a lot of impressions and not a lot of clicks so you can find areas where you can improve your website and improve your content so number four is gonna be the google search console okay so the next four keyword research tools are gonna be using autocomplete for some of the top search engines so some of the top search engines are Google YouTube Amazon and Bing so what you want to do
Use autocomplete to find out best keywords!
is use autocomplete to see what people are actually typing in as you start to enter any type of search term so for example if you're looking up different keywords related to back pain you can come over here to Google you just enter the keyword and it's gonna come up with some of the top suggestions and it's based on the overall popularity and similarity of these different keywords here so using Google you can come in to Amazon here you can see if we come just over here to back pain we click on space you can see some of the top things that people are looking for when it comes to back pain if we come over to Bing same exact thing so back pain back pain relief you can find all these different keywords by using autocomplete this is great when you're creating content so for example if I'm creating content for YouTube and I want to create content related to back pain I can see exactly what people are looking for so how did here's 10 back pain relief exercises best back pain sleeping position so all these different things can be very helpful for figuring out the types of content that people are looking for and I can tell you with Surfside PPC I use this very often if I'm looking for new keywords so for example if I'm looking up Facebook ads I can just enter that keyword here it's gonna come up with the top things that people are actually typing in into YouTube and you can do the same thing with Google Amazon is great for products so to see the types of products that people are looking for you just enter it into Amazon and then Google and Bing are just such big search engines that you can see what people are actually typing in when they're searching in these different search engines so using autocomplete it's one of my favorite things to do especially as I'm creating content or coming up with some new content ideas related around an individual keyword okay so some of the next tools are gonna be some freemium tools that you can use they're gonna give you some key words but they either have a limit to how many searches that give you some of them won't give you all the information such as search volume and max cost per click bids and different things like that so I'm gonna go through some of these different tools here the first one is keyword tool I oh you can use Google autocomplete so this is gonna use Google autocomplete just like what I showed you previously Google YouTube Bing Amazon eBay Place or Instagram and Twitter so you can search a variety of sources here the next one is que parser so this is a keyword suggestion tool for SEO and PPC again and as a free and paid option so if you click here you can see there's a variety of sources that you can actually choose to search from it can be useful if you're looking for keywords from a variety of sources the next one is going to be hyper suggest so this one same thing you can search some different sources here you can enter your keyword you can choose country language and just click search so I'm gonna do that in a minute and then last two is word tracker so find new keywords for your market and then there's also word tracker scout so we're tracker scout is a browser extension you just click on free download here and it's available for Chrome so I have it up here at the top and I'll go through that in a minute so we're gonna come back over here to keyword tool that IO and we're gonna enter back pain and just click on search okay so you can see search for back pain found 648 unique keywords they don't show you search volume trend CPC or competition but you can get a lot of different ideas here and what it does is it does a lot of these keywords and alphabet orders so you can see some of the ones at the top are some of the ones that are probably the most popular keywords and then as you scroll down you can see back pain and fever after sleeping after running so you can see there's some different things here that you can actually find it's all in alphabetical order so as we go down back pain burning keep going down back pain chart so there's a lot of different options that you can find here as you're searching all these different keywords here so keyword tool that IO is a really good keyword tool sometimes I use it for YouTube I've never done the full access where you get to use their procurer tool but it's an option that you can use if you want to I generally just stick the free keyword tools myself so the next one is gonna be que parser so I'm gonna do the same thing here so it says enter one or more seed keywords I'm just gonna enter back pain here we're gonna search Google and click on start okay so you can see here they've queued all these different keywords they've discovered over 250 keywords it's still going as we scroll down you can

and then you can see they have a bunch of different keywords here back pain lower remedies lower left icd-10 relief so a lot of different options here again with K parser so they're free keyword research will give you plenty of keywords if you just enter one keyword here and you can also search from different sources so this is another good YouTube keyword research tool and it'll work for Amazon and different things like that now the next one I want to go through is hyper suggests so with hyper suggests they really don't give you much with the free plan so if we come in here and we enter our keyword we'll enter back pain you can search different countries so if we do United Kingdom United States so I'll just scroll down since I'm located in the United States I'll just do that one and we'll click on search here so you can see they found 438 results for back pain and if we to see here they only give us ten results because we have no active subscription so obviously you need to upgrade to a pro plan to see all the different keywords here so hyper suggests doesn't give you a ton but you can search from different sources so if you're searching on eBay or if you're searching on YouTube or Amazon or something like that it might be another useful keyword research tool for you to use I really don't use it that often but it's another one with a little bit of a free option that gives you some information now the next one is going to be word tracker so we're tracker we can enter back pain again we'll click on search so word tracker only gives you so many free searches

PPC SEO it'll have search volume overall competition they also have their own column here for in anchor and title account of the webpages on which the keyword appears in both the title tag and the text of a backlink so you can find a lot of different keywords using this one as well so word tracker is another good one that you can try to use so these are all freemium tools now the other thing you can use is the word tracker scout so the Scout you just download and install on Chrome and let's just say for example I come over here to beachfront decor comm and we click on the word tracker
