    Great tips in the video. This is the first time I’ve heard of the Wonder Wheel. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Excellent article, very informative. The Google Wonder Wheel is a great tool

  3. Great tool indeed Mike. Consider it a demand based keyword tool which aggregates buzzwords in real time. Based on the output, you can mirror the cues with on page optimization to give Google everything it wants based on keyword supply and demand.

    Take the root phrase and make that a landing page, supporting keywords for categories or internal links and then use the offshoots for tags or inbound links to the category pages.

    Just like a tube Taurus effect, websites built under this premise can perpetuate its own semantic momentum and SERP evolution / promotion.
