I recently wrote about the simplest way to jumpstart your keyword research. First, read that post. Secondly, come back and use these sites to examine the results.

  1. Your site
  2. Your top competitors site
  3. Thesaurus.com
  4. Ask.com
  5. The DMOZ page for your category
  6. The Yahoo Directory page for your category
  7. If you’re a location based business, try the local.com search results for your keywords
  8. Is the number one page/site in the organic results related to your keywords?
    • If yes, spider for keywords
    • If no, spider for negative keywords
  9. Google News or Yahoo News. Do a search for your keyword first (this one might not be around forever. Google doesn’t normally let their results get spidered)
  10. The top authority magazine’s or newspaper site in your industry.
  11. The sites where you get your news about your industry
  12. Any sites you regularly watch for information about your industry
  13. If it’s one of your industry resources, spider it for new keywords
