Keywords are getting trickier as time passes by. With the recent Google keyword apocalypse (Google's 100% keyword change), we've lost access to much of the keyword data that laid the foundations for our previous efforts. Fortunately, there are still ways to find out what the high opportunity keywords are. Ironically, one of them is to use Google. Google Trends allows you to search for a keyword and assess its search volume throughout different time and location dimensions. You can see the keyword’s overall performance to determine whether it's being entered more or less often in a Google search—a great indicator of whether or not you should continue optimizing it on your site.
