How to Find Keywords

Stuart over at Earners Blog came up with an interesting strategy. He is posting lists of keywords that he has gotten from WordZe. I’ll make the same list and maybe a new guy will find the process helpful.

My keywords are going to be about the “Claw Game“.  This is because my blog already ranks #6 for this in Google because of my post on how to beat the claw game.

So first I am going to go to Google’s AdWords Tool.  This one is the external one that is open to anybody.

Sorted by Average Search Volume I came up with these just by looking for “Claw Game”.

This isn’t bad.  If I was branding a product I would definitely want to add negative keywords based on my product.  If I was selling home claw games that people would put in their home bars I would probably not want claw computer games, so I would add “-internet”, “-flash”, “-software”, “-candy”, “-online”, “-virtual”, “-pc”, “-video”, “-computer”, etc…

However, the claw game is also known as the “Crane Game”.  Here are those keywords.

This gives us more options.  Maybe we don’t want “toy”, “crane pond”, “murderworld” or others.  By looking at this list we can see that sometimes the game is called “Klaw” or “Grabit”.  After searching just a little bit online some people call it “Players Choice” and “Redemption Game”.  Maybe I could go after some of those keywords as well.

The way I would proceed with this is add all of these keywords to 3 different ad groups.  1 for Broad, 1 for Phrase and 1 for Exact.  I would then see which ones perform better after getting at least 100-200 clicks each.  Then I would break out those high performing keywords into their own ad groups and make sure the ads are targeted exactly for those.

There are more ways to find keywords but Google’s tool is a good start.
