Quick and Free Keyword Search Method
In this tutorial, we’ll explain to you a free keyword search method.
Find keywords that are easy to rank for using free tools on the interweb.
And the full tools that we’ll be using are:
- Keywords Everywhere, which gets search volume estimates
- Answer the Public, which gets keywords people are looking for
- And also the Keyword Shitter, one of my personal favorites, it will get the search volumes from the Answer Public keywords
- And finally, we will use Google Sheets to organize the results and filter them down

Step-By-Step Free Keyword Search
1. Go to Answer the Public.com
So, without further ado, what you must do is come to Answer the Public.com and type in a base keyword something really broad, over-arching related to your niche.
So, we’re gonna go with creativity and we’re going to tap on Get Questions.
We’ll wait for this to load and what it will do is it will put all of the most common question words like what, who, where, when, are in front of creativity.
And then, it will type it into Google and add the autocomplete answers for that most popular search terms.
So, then you get lots of long tail keywords searches.
2. Click Download on CSV
And we will download these by clicking on Download on CSV in the top right hand corner.
3. Copy Everything in Column C
It will then open these up.
And what you will do is copy everything in column C.
So, what to do is scroll over at the bottom.
Press Shift, copy those.
4. Go to Keyword Shitter
And then the next tool we go to is the Keyword Shitter, where you will paste all of those terms into this box here.
And then it will shoot keywords.
Now, here’s a trick.
5. Press Stop Job Once
Make sure you press Stop Job once it first starts to show results.
Boom, Stop Job, stop.
Because otherwise it will continue shooting out keywords, much like the title says, and it won’t stop.
And you’ll get thousands, and a lot of them, the pretty shit.
So, now we have our search volumes for these 1000 keywords that we have found using Answer to the Public.
So, copy all of these.
Let’s go all the way to the bottom.
Copy all of these.
6. Go to Your Google Sheet to Filter Results
And then we will go to the Google Sheets to filter results.
I’ve created a special Google Sheets document for you to use, which I will link to in the description.
You can save your own version of this to be used.
So, then we just copy all of these into the search results on the left hand column.
And then the next step is to go into the second column.
And we’re going to filter these by ones that have less than 250 words.
So, you go to filter by condition, go to the drop down, less than, and enter 250.
And then we’re going to sort the third column number words, column C from Z to A.
This will give us the longest word first.
7. Copy the Longest Keyword
See here, we can see this 10-word keyword search term: can creativity be taught or is it an inherent trait.
That’s pretty detailed little keyword that someone has entered there.
And then, what we do is we take this long tail keyword.
We copy it.
Like this, copy.
8. Go Back to Google
And then we go to Google.
And we will put in, Allintitle colon.
And then our search term.
Just like this.
So, we do this to see how many other sites there are that have this exact keyword term in their title.
So, we can see, there are three.
9. Go Back to Your Google Sheet to Input Allintitle Result
So we go back to the Google Sheets, and we put three in the column Allintitle results.
Now, this will spit out a number at the end, which at the moment is 0.060.
And the idea is that anything that has a score of lower than no point two five, is a good keyword to target.
Because it will have not much competition, and it will have some good search traffic.
And this is the way to find beautiful keywords.
Let’s Have More Practice
So let’s just do one more for an example.
Something a little bit different… Where creativity occurs in the brain, where is creativity in the brain.
That might be something that might suit us.
Creativity is like washing a pig.
That’s a pretty ridiculous one.
How about, how creativity helps the brain.
We will copy this.
Copy, copy, copy, and we’ll go back to the Allintitle Google, and we will add this in.
And we can see that this one just has three as well.
So, we can go back.
Pop that in and see what score we get.
And it has no point three.
So, that would just not quite fit our requirements because it gets quite a low search volume.
So, what you will do is perform this for as many as the most interesting keyword terms that you like and find a good set of low competition keywords.
And then you can order those in this column.
And you can see which ones are your best keywords.
So, we can see the 2 we’ve done here.
And that is the way to get keywords that have low competition, but a nice amount of search volume using free tools on the interweb.
