AI Keyword Research

AI Powered SEO

Try using Chat GPT, Gemini or Copilot to speed up your keyword research for SEO (AI Keyword Research). Here are some ways you can use Copilot to find and optimize keywords for your website or blog:

Generate a list

You can ask AI to generate a list of relevant keywords based on a topic, a seed keyword, or a competitor’s website. For example, you can type “generate keywords for ‘buy ukulele’.” I tried it in each of the basic AI tools and got similar results. Here is the Copilot example: Prompt: Generate a list of keywords for SEO based on the seed keyword “buy ukulele.” Result:

  • buy ukulele online
  • best ukulele brands
  • ukulele for beginners
  • concert ukulele
  • soprano ukulele
  • tenor ukulele
  • baritone ukulele
  • ukulele accessories

I can ask for more and it will give me more.

Get Data to Analyze

You can ask AI to take those keywords and build a table with search volume, keyword difficulty and user intent for each keyword. I told Gemini “Can you create a table that includes Keyword, Search Volume, Keyword Difficulty and Search Intent for SEO for the seed keyword ‘buy ukulele?’” It created a list with all the data in it that saved me a lot of time. However, it gave me ranges for the search volume (e.g. 1000-10,000) , and I didn’t like that. I wanted actual numbers so I asked it to give me actual numbers in the Search Volume column and it did. Here is what I got.

This saved a lot of time. I do think I might train it on a few more options for search intent that include Navigational and Commercial and ask it to remake the table with four those four possible Search Intents, but that might be splitting hairs.

Chose the Winners

I thought we might as well use AI powers to help us sort the list based on some criteria while we are at it so I entered the following prompt: “Can you sort that table using the following criteria: High search volume is good, low keyword difficulty is good and transactional search intent is better than informational.” It sorted it.

AI Keyword Research

I could have been more specific on my criteria and how I weight each if I wanted to. I think you get the idea. Create a few prompts that tell AI what to do based on what you would have had to do. Once you see the results, refine your request. You may even have to teach it a concept or two or reference a concept that you like. Then you have saved yourself a lot of time and produced very good results. Granted, you could much of this with paid tools like Semrush or Ahrefs, but might have a harder time telling those tools to use criterions and weights to make decisions. And the AI tools I used are free.
