The easiest and the simplest way to do a keyword research is to go to the keyword planner tool, type in the required words and voila! You have a list of words to choose from. It is safe to say that this is a perfunctory way of doing keyword research.

That was the olden times. Now things have changed. Long tail keywords have gained power over the keyword tool. It has become way tougher to perceive what a user may type in the search engine. Now is the time to tap the untapped sources for keyword research. The keyword planner tool is a necessity but there are various other tools that can have a positive impact on your final keyword list.

1. Google Autocomplete-
Who ever thought that the Google autocomplete would be a tool that would help us make a keyword list. When you type something into the Google search box, a number of options prop up before you finish typing in your search query. These options are the most searched queries on Google and it can be used to create a concrete list of keywords. You must know that there are certain topics that Google does not provide suggestions to.

2. Related searches on Google-
Once you key in your query in the search box, you reach the Search Engine Results Page. They list in front of you several links that may be the answer to your search query. At the end of that page, there is also a list of related searches. They are basically other searches that may hold the answer to your query if the current one does not. These queries can be alternative keywords for you webpage.

3. Amazon-
