Are you ready for a SUPER tool to add to your SEO toolbox? Take a look at the Wonder Wheel.
What is it? Wonder Wheel, right there hidden on Google search results page, is great and easy to use VISUAL Search Engine Optimization tool. The Wonder Wheel shows your search results in a visual format - wheel - with your search term in the middle and terms that Google sees as related on the spokes of the wheel.
Why wheel it? To improve your blogs, posts and sites. You can optimize your content with keywords/terms whether it is within a post, a blog or a website. You could also use these related terms when doing a Pay Per Click campaign.
How do you find it? The wonder wheel is there, hidden in the Google search results. Here is how.
I did a Google search for Miami foreclosures (as an example) - below is the typical search results page
Click on Show Options...
... and you see the left hand column
Look at the left hand column and find Wonder Wheel - click on it...
... and this appears
You can see that each spoke has a search term that Google sees related to the term in the middle. If you click on any of the terms on the spokes another wheel opens up with related terms to that particular term - in the example I clicked on the spoke/term Miami Beach foreclosures
How do you use this information?
If you are writing a blog post you could add one of two of the related terms as your secondary keywords. You could also add links to other posts that you have written about one or more of the terms on the spokes. Or you could write about your main term and each of the terms on the spokes in your same blog.
If you were looking for a content for a website this could be a great starting point to see what types of pages to add to your site.
Once you have written a few posts or pages you can start linking them to each other and voila there you have some SEO in action.
From one term you can write up to EIGHT other RELATED posts or pages - if the terms make sense. I did a few other searches and some of the terms would not have worked as they mentioned some companies by name, even ours - hope that is a good thing.
I am such a visual person so I love how easy it is to use the wheel and just keep adding related content. There certainly are many, many other ways to tackle SEO, keywords and such, but as simple as this is to use and implement, you might find that adding this to your toolbox is a great addition.
