Keyword research is the most critical stage in the SEO process, so here are 3 “low-tech” / free keyword research solutions that you can use to find lucrative alternative keywords and modifiers that exist under the radar of of most typical keyword research tools.

1) The Wildcard Search

2) Related Search Stemmed Keyword Clusters

3) The Wonder Wheel

From here you can (a) create topically aligned blog posts or articles on each topic (b) integrate them into older landing pages to use as contextual links or (c) build them into future site segments of posts. As a bonus tip, you can also use anchor text suggestions based on the synergistic occurrences to vary your link profile for inbound links (for those you have control over).

    Great post!

    I was doing some testing with the Google suggestions today.

    Thanks,
