    Google keywords tool is an excellent resource for coming up with keywords for your site. However, I'd suggest that you should not put all your eggs in one basket and use only one source for keyword suggestions. Your own personal judgement together with your knowledge of your own site and its visitors will be very important in selecting keywords.

    Google keyword suggestion tool is the best tool at all, this tells the right way to choose keywords. Always choose those keywords which have good traffic and low competition.

    The Google keyword suggestion tool is the best FREE tool, but there are others, and some of the paid tools provide much more information on keywords than you get from the Google keyword suggestion tool.

    For my use, the Google keyword suggestion tool is fine, but if I were an SEO professional, and was trying to do the best job for my client, I would never rely on any one tool, even if I thought it was the best. Different tools give you different information and may give you a different insight into positioning your client's website.

    Yes keyword research is the first and the foremost step in optimizing a website. Keywords can be chosen through different ways.

    1. We can get the keywords from the clients.
    2. Understand the main business and by which we can use google adwords keyword tool to build many keywords for a site.
    3. By analyzing the competitor websites we can pick the keywords that were used already for ranking their sites.

    I agree.

    Additionally, when doing a keyword research .. try to research on your competitor, where they link and how they target keywords. This can come in handy to know what type of keywords you're competitors are working at. You can also use Google Trends / Insights to see which keywords are gaining popularity in search up to the next few months. You can also make use of other online tools like SEMrush, opensiteexplorer, ahrefs, spyfu.com to have a collection of data that you can use to determine which keywords will you use on your campaign.


    Thanks,
    Mark T.

    No. Google Trends / Insights shows keywords / search terms that are getting somewhat an increase in search volume in the past few days or months, and shows an overview of how the search terms would be in the next few months - giving you an overview on what terms can you target on your next posts / article or an update on your website to be able to get that traffic on the search term.

    Here's one tip I got from Wil Reynolds of SEER Interactive. Go to Google Search and just type your a keyword related in your niche. The Google Auto-complete will suggest you some keywords that are really useful because it is what users actually search. *Don not hit ENTER*

    Yeah, the keywords action list is very useful. It shows the clear steps here. Thanks.

    Google keywords suggestion tool is informative and useful.
    I will choose the keywords from there which relates to my target website.

    Some people tell me that the Google trends have disappeared from the market?
    Is it true?
