Related Keywords: FAQ
What are related keywords?
Related keywords are either synonyms of your target keyphrase or keyphrases that searchers often search for along with your target keyphrase. For example:
Keyword = “how to start a vegetable garden” Synonym keyword = “how to start vegetable gardening”
Keyword = “how to start a vegetable garden” Related Keyword = “vegetable garden supply list”
What are related keywords called?
Related keywords are often referred to as LSI keywords or Latent Semantic Indexing keywords. Latent Semantic Indexing is a mathematical way for search engines to figure out which keywords are related to each other. If that makes your head spin a bit, don’t worry – you don’t have to understand LSI to understand related keywords. Just ask yourself: what else would someone who needs to read this post type into Google?
How do I find related keywords?

Instead, let search prediction populate, this will give you a treasure trove of related keywords (see below)! Watch the video above for more ways to find related keywords.
