For a company looking to improve its online presence, the keywords they rank for online, and their position, are crucial. Knowing which keywords to target can be difficult, especially for a smaller business that may not yet rank for many, or established businesses looking to find additional terms they may be overlooking.
One basic tool to hunt for new keywords to rank for is Google autocomplete – the process of simply beginning to type in the Google search box and letting Google suggests possible search terms based on what you’ve input. These suggested terms are based on what other people are searching for using your input term and therefore may provide useful keyword suggestions. This is an introductory blog post on how to utilise the Google Suggest API for keyword suggestions using google apps scripts to pull the data.
