Find Keywords using Google Keyword Planner
Step 1 : Go to Google Keyword Planner & Log in with your Gmail account. Or if you have no account then just sign up. After that, Click on Tools > Keyword Planner.
Step 2 : Here you see the three different options. For our case, we select the first one: Search for new keywords using a phrase, website or category.
Step 3 : We get 4 sections here.
- Search Fields
- Targeting Options
- Filters & Options
- Date Range
Search Fields: In search fields section put your keyword/keywords on product or service. For example “Backlinks”, “SEO” etc.
The landing page field is actually for Google Adwords users. No need to put anything here. But you can sometimes find a few solid keywords here using your site’s homepage or an article from your site.
Product Category allows accessing Google’s internal database of keywords for different kinds of industries. Sometimes you can find keywords here that you might have missed.
Targeting Options: This is simple. Simply select the targeted country, language & search engine that you are marketing on. In this case, i select all location (All over the word), language English & search engine google.
Native keywords is another feature that is only for AdWords users.
Customize your search (Filtering): Keyword filters option allows you to filter out keywords. For example, you are not want to see below 1000 monthly searches. Just enter your number in keyword filters box. Then put your suggested bid in the same way.
Keyword Options simply give you some options, how broad you want your results to be.
Keyword to include is a cool feature to me. For example, your keyword is “Nexus 6p”. Put “Buy” on the keyword to include section. Then google keyword planner find out your results for “Buy Nexus 6p” keyword.
Date Range: Simply select your date range. 12 months or last month or any particular month. Select any date range you want.

Just see the picture below. I just put “Backlink” on product or service field & click on ‘get ideas’ button. You may see the same thing on your monitor.
Here you get some list of keywords idea & their average monthly search, competition, suggested bid and so on. In primary level, these are your targeted keywords. But if you want to be a professional keyword researcher then you need to invest huge time to know about it.
