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?

Google! Google is easiest way to find related keywords. How? Type your target keyword/keyphrase into the search bar, but don’t press enter just yet. 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.

Hi everybody!

It’s Kelly here with Blogfiti!

 And today we are going to be talking about five ways to find related keywords and rank in Google.

What do I mean by related keywords?

We are talking about keywords that help Google understand the context of your main keyword as well as, but not always, synonyms.

For example, a synonym of kitty litter might be cat sand, but the related keywords might be clumping clay, tidy cats, et cetera.

Now, why are these related keywords and synonyms important? They help search engines, understand what your blog post is about and boosts its ranking within the search engines.

 It also improves the relevance of your content.

So it makes sure that you don’t over stuff your content with one keyword.

You don’t want to be caught keyword stuffing by Google.

They will put you in jail (blogger jail, not real jail).

Lastly, it increases the number of eyes on your posts.

The more ways that you allow for Google to find your posts, the more eyes it will show it to.

This is why it’s so important to add related keywords into your blog posts.

 Let’s go ahead and look at the first way to find related keywords and rank in Google.

The first method of finding related keywords is LSI graph.


This is a free tool.

You get three free searches a day or eight free searches a day.

 If you subscribe to their email lists and it’s super easy, you just pop in your keyword and then you tell it to generate.

 So let’s look for the keto diets.

 You can see it brought up a whole slew of related keywords.

 Look at all these, and they have tons of information on them.

 Volume cost per click, etc.

 These are related keywords that you would want to plop in your blog posts.

And we will talk about where you want to put these.

 After I show you the five methods method.

 Number two is to simply brainstorm, pull out a sheet of paper, write your target keyword at the top of it and go crazy lists out.

 All of the words you can think of that are related to that keyword next, maybe draw a line down the middle for another column, put in all the synonyms you can think of for your target keyword.

 The brainstorming method is one of the simplest, fastest and easiest ways to come up with related keywords for your target keyword and boost your ranking in search engines.


 Number three is to use a keyword tool such as Ubersuggest.

 Now I love and recommend Ubersuggest for new bloggers.

 One because of the price and two, because of the lack of complexity that comes with the more expensive tools like Moz and Ahrefs.

Those are wonderful tools of their own, but they’re a little too advanced for brand new bloggers and they cost a pretty penny per month.

 Most keyword tools will have some sort of related keyword option.

 So we’re going to go ahead and use the keto diet example.

 Again, I’m just hearing Uber suggest.

 I went to keyword overview.

 I typed in keto diets.

 If we scroll down here, these are keyword ideas and really these are all related keywords in and of themselves, but they specifically have related right over here.

 So these are the related words that you are going to want to include within your blog post for method.

 Number four, we are going to head over to trust the old Google itself and use its auto-complete feature.

 Again, let’s use our keto diets example, and you can see that just using the auto-complete.

 We have a list of related keyword plan foods, pills, recipe meal, plan for beginner menu, food list, what to eat.

These could all be blog posts in and of themselves, or they could be part of one pillar blog post.

 That includes all these related terms within them for method number five, we are going to stay at Google and type in our keyword again, keto diet.

 And we’re going to scroll on down to the related searches area.

 So at the bottom of every Google page, that has the searches related to whatever you typed in area.

 And these are all going to be related keywords that you want to include in your content.

 Now that you know where to find related keywords, let’s talk about where to put them in your blog posts.

 You want to sprinkle them throughout your blog posts use one of them or two of them in an H two tag.

 And you also want to use one or two of them in your alt tags for your images.

They’re also a perfect substitute.

 If Yoast or rank math is telling you that you are keyword stuffing, you can go back and replace the over-saturated keyword with one of your keyword synonyms.

 And it’s a win-win, you’re not keyword stuffing, and you are adding related keywords.
