How To Use Google's Wonder Wheel

Education & Training with Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty

The Google Wonder Wheel Keyword Research Tool a keyword research utility that was created by Google Labs and allows users to discover keyword searches that are popular and built around certain specific keyword terms.

Google's wonder wheel could be a great tool for helping writers to find new topics. The wheel can also help you dominate specific keywords and phrases in the search engines because it helps you write about the things that are the most searched for on the web using the most popular keywords or terms.

Here's How It Works:

Create your search in the Google Search Engine, then click on the "Google Search" button:

The results displayed will include sponsored and organic links:

To Access "Google's Wonder Wheel" Click on the "+Show options" Link at the top of page:

Scroll down the left hand side of the page untill you come to the "Standard View" options and click on the link for "Google's Wonder Wheel"  Wait for just a moment and the Wonder Wheel will appear on the page.  The links coming off the Wonder Wheel are popular and similair keywords, terms, and phrases that you can now use as "Titles" and "Topics" to write or Blog about.

Each time you click on one of the spokes "Terms or Phrases"
a new Wonder Wheel will load on the screen displaying even more "keywords" and popular "search terms" These can be used for creating great content and getting you closer to dominating your Blog with those specific keywords or phrases.  Go deeper and further into the possible options and opportunities to make your Blog's content the most likely to be searched and found.

This is like having a road map or blue print for your Blog.  If you use Google's Wonder Wheel for a variety of search terms and keywords that you want to be found with, this should save you time and headaches "Wondering" what those "Words" and "Phrases" are.  There's always going to be great tools out there, and promises to help get you the best SEO results, but in my opinion, this is one of the best and most powerful I have seen yet.  Thanks to Google and Google Labs for making the "Wonder Wheel" available, and for hiding it so well, it gave me a reason to write this post.

You always come with cool stuff, and you are always the first to stumble upon this stuff... well, I guess, you can't stumle, unless you search.

Thanks again

Hi, Brad.

I just tried this! My "competition," both Active Rain members, do not seem to be active (no pun intended) so I am learning and growing and they are not. AR is an incredible wealth of information and knowledge and I am so appreciative for all of your tips. This one is AWESOME. Thank you, thank you!!

That looks like a great tool. Sort of like mind mapping in reverse.

this sounds like a GREAT tool, but I keep getting an "error on page" notice and no map.  I can't wait to try it on another computer.

Hi Carol - it may just be your browser.  I understand that the Google Wonder Wheel only works, (or works best) with the Firefox Browser and not with the Internet Explorer browser.  Try Firefox and see if that corrects the issue.  :-)

This is one of the best kept secrets out there.

I'm amazed at how powerful this tool is yet most folks have no idea that it exists. :-)

Interesting that I am somewhat a techno-geek. Most of what I've learned (or re-learned) I knew but just didn't know how to apply it to blogging. However, this one is something I did not know existed. They should teach this to the college kids as my daughter struggled in her writing for Comp classes during her freshman year. I will be adding this one to my tools of knowledge. Thanks! :)

Jim - this is one of the greatest tools out there in my opinion. It seems to be a "best kept secret" for those who see its power.

FYI...  I think it only works with the firefox browser, I was told it does not work with internet explorer.
