1. Google Keyword Planner
2. LSI Graph
Let’s start with the Free Keyword tracking Tools. But it is highly advisable to use Paid tools like SEMrush which will diversify the data clearly.
#1. Google Keyword Planner
Google Keyword Planner (GKP) is best of free online keyword research tools. Generally this tool is for Advertisers. Most of the bloggers would be publishers who put ads on their sites to earn money. However we can still build some initial keywords list from this tool.
Steps to use Google Keyword Planner to find LSI Keywords:
1. Sign in with your Google account in Google Adwords
Homepage.2. At the left corner enter your primary keyword to search for their siblings and hit theGet Ideas
3. Now you will get loads of LSI keywords. Note them down. They will be useful for next process.
Now that you have your initial keywords with you. But all those keywords are not worthy. So we have to separate Honey out of the Pot manually.
Remember this is a Free tool. So you have to do it manually by your self. In order to do that simply remove the keywords with less monthly searches.
I have found a Tool to find monthly searches and CPC. Here is the Free tool which shows monthly Searches and CPC beneath the google Search.
Install Free Keyword Tracking tool Addon and you will see the change while using google search.
#2. LSI Graph:
LSI Graph is my personal favorite tool which I have been using over a year to find LSI keywords. And guess what, it’s a Free app too.
Steps to find LSI Keywords using LSI Graph:
1. Open LSI Graph site www.lsigraph.com
2. Now you will see a big Search bar over there enter your primary keyword in it.3. Now complete the Captcha and hit Generate Button.
4. That’s it. You will get lots of LSI keywords under it.
It provides list of LSI keywords based on our primary keyword. The only frustrating is the Captcha. For every unique search we have to complete Captcha. Remember its a Free tool, so its okay to kill some time passing Captcha.
But again, we have to do the manually thing just like GKP. But as far as my knowledge that won’t be necessary. All the keywords are automatically sorted based on all metrics. So choose some random top keywords and experiment on them.
