Pinterest

There are three ways that I use Pinterest to find keywords, and I even wrote up a whole tutorial for you. This is excellent, especially for searches that might also be happening on Pinterest – it shows you exactly what your potential readers are looking for.

Youtube Page Source

Whether you are creating a video or just writing a blog post, YouTube is a great place to search for keywords. Remember, YouTube is owned by Google, so this is information directly from the horse’s mouth. Here’s a tutorial on how I search YouTube Page Source for keywords.

Keywords Everywhere

Keywords Everywhere is a free extension for your internet browser. It provides you with top keywords as well as monthly search counts right in your existing Google Search. It’s a convenient way to identify the most used keywords within your search topic.
