The iSpionage Keyword Research Tool Review

Posted on November 13, 2009 by Tim Schroeder

Effective keyword research is the most important step when starting up a PPC campaign.

When I first began PPC advertising, I basically used the keyword tools in Google and Yahoo, dumped a bunch of keywords into my account, and later refined my lists, deleting poor keywords and raising bids on better performing keywords. It was a ‘wait and see’ strategy. This strategy wasn’t working out too well as I was spending more time refining my keywords afterwards than if I were to spend a little time doing keyword research before activating my PPC account.

Using free keyword suggestion tools is a reasonable place to start your keyword research, particularly for new websites. But it has limitations:

  • Popularity over Relevancy: Keyword tools by design favor popular keywords, but don’t mistake popularity with relevancy.
  • Just Suggestions: It’s up to the search marketer to review and test what keywords will work on the site.
  • Free Public Tools: It’s hard to get a true competitive advantage if everyone is using the same publicly available keyword tools.

The biggest challenges in keyword research revolve around proving those suggestions out:

How do you test the keywords?

How do you validate volume and relevancy estimates?

How do you build a proprietary keyword list?

  • Headline: Does their headline speak to your shared audience? Are they using dynamic keyword insertion? Are they using it well?
  • Body copy: How effective are they utilizing those 70 precious characters? If your products/services are similar, what benefits and features do they highlight? What kind of promises or claims do they make in their ad copy?
  • Call-to-action: What is the competition doing to motivate users to click-through their ad? Are they offering free information, special deals or free shipping? Is there an opportunity for you to make a better offer and blow them out of the water?


Once you are done dissecting your competition’s PPC ad texts, then you should move on to their landing page. Comb through their landing page to see how they may be talking to your audience better than you. When a user hits your landing page, you have only a few seconds to pull them in before they click the back button. What is your competition’s strategy to hold users’ attention? What elements of their design or text can you incorporate into yours?
