There are many awesome keyword tools available online, however these research tools are going to be a month or more behind, they tend to look at past behaviour. This means there is a huge number of NEW search queries and keywords just waiting to be found.

So how do you find awesome new keywords to target? Well, why not scrape Google autosuggest and see what Google has to say. This is free and easy to do, first you will need to add a url into your address bar.


And then add your search term at the end in speech marks AKA inverted commas (after q=), for example “digital marketing”

The best part of this neat little autosuggest trick is obtaining newer queries, those that have recently started trending on Google.
