Keyword research: A tool displaying the various relations between words

Keyword research forms the basis of SEO and thus, it’s in a way one of the essentials for any webmaster. Once you get the right keywords (after a good research obviously!), you have actually done half of your task. Further, you just need to play around these keywords and then its merry time!

For your keyword research, there are many options on the internet. Firstly, there are several websites that provide a great resource of information on SEO and keywords. Further, there are umpteen SEO tools (most of them are nice ones!) that open up an entire world of keywords for you. Some of these tools are very famous while many of them are not so popular, even though they score a very good on usefulness! One such tool is the Lexical-Freenet Connected Thesaurus. This SEO tool has been around for quite some time now and has been used by several webmasters for their benefits (yet, surprisingly not much is talked about it!).

Lexical-Freenet is a free keyword research tool. In fact, it’s a treasure of ideas on how search engines might possibly view the relation between various words. The tool simplifies a hell lot of work of your keyword research. Not just does it displays the results in words but also gives a graphical analysis of sorts for the words and its relations. It’s a compilation of a multitude of words and its relations on various bases.

The results are classified symbolically to ‘ synonymous’, ‘triggers’, ‘generalizes’, ‘sepcializes’, ‘comprises’, ‘part of’, ‘antonyms of’, ‘anagrams’, ‘rhymes’, ‘sounds like’, ‘bio triggers’, ‘also known as’, ‘occupation of’, ‘nationality of’, ‘birth year of’, ‘death year of’!!! Well to make it simple, the classification is done on the basis of the relation between words or possible relations. One could type a single word or two words to find out the various combinations of possible relations between them.

Consider this for an example, you type in the word ‘research’ in the tool. You would be surprised by the results it shows. Let’s just see few of the classifications and their corresponding results for the word- research.

In the category of synonymous words: enquiry, explore, inquiry, search are the word featured.

In the category of triggers (which means what the word would possibly trigger in a search engine query): cancer, researchers, scientists, disease, aids, patients, breast, science, medical, drug, brain, genetic, virus, development, scientific, institute, experiments, drugs, diseases, data, university, genes, cells, Alzheimer’s, vaccine, risk, project, nicotine, human, gene, fetal, embryos, embryo, effects, cure, animals.

One could easily observe the plethora of related words the tool displays. Similarly, the tool displays related words in the other categories too (it would be better not to write them all, as it would make the article quite dull and uninteresting!). Nevertheless, do check out the tool all by yourself for a great source of information. This tool along with the combination of other effective keyword tools can be an excellent recipe for an SEO technique.
