Use Google Adwords Keyword Tools for Local Search

Google Adwords Keyword Tool
This little “hint” if you will could be over looked by some when outlining your local search strategy. Type in your keywords + location on Google Adwords keyword tool and it will give you some data (although not all…yet).

I wouldn’t be surprised if Google released the average search volumes that we currently see for standard keyword research. However you can see the graph and you can find out which month of the year has the highest search volumes.

I suppose the point of this post is not to confuse your standard keyword research with “local search” research as volumes differ per location.

  1. Wow, that’s a nice discovery. I use Adwords’ keyword tool all the time. I also use search operators regularly. But I never knew I could do this location thing with that tool.
