Local Keyword Generator.
And for those of you that have had to localize top level keywords before you know what a huge, time consuming and manual PITA it can be. Well not anymore!
In order to streamline this process I developed a Google Sheet’s script that can take a couple of inputs (city and keyword list) and generate a localized set of keywords. I like to call it…
This tool is really simple to use:
For those of you who have checked out our 2016 Local SEO Ranking Factors study, and if you haven’t now is a great time to, then you know that here at Local SEO Guide that we look at a grouping of 3 keywords to represent most local queries. For example, if the client is a dentist in Costa Mesa it would look something like this:
dentist dentist costa mesa costa mesa dentist.
Simple enough right? Now you can spend time doing keyword research instead of localizing your keywords lists!

Don’t get me wrong; you can find some good keywords with free keyword tools.
For example, we rank in position 8 for “most searched person on Google.”
The only downside is that there’s no way to get search volumes in bulk.
Keywords Explorer > enter seed keyword > Phrase match.
It doesn’t show search volumes or trends data, and it doesn’t group keywords as Keyword Planner does.
For example, let’s set “plumber” as the business type. We see queries like hot water installation , gas installation , drain cleaning , and drain relining .
2. Keyword Generator.
If we plug the same seed into Ahrefs’ Keywords Explorer, we get 626,768 keywords—that’s 3,900x times more.
The reality is that time spent mining Google autocomplete for queries is time wasted. The same is true of merging data from multiple free keyword tools in spreadsheets. You should aim to use that time for more important stuff, like creating content or link building.
Keyword Generator finds up to 150 keyword ideas for any seed keyword.
5. Keyword Surfer.
This tool is a fantastic starting point if you know little or nothing about a niche.
Just scroll down to the SERP Overview.
