Learn More About Keyword Generators
Keyword generators are tools that provide keyword suggestions  for paid and organic search marketing campaigns. Basing your search marketing campaigns on brainstorming and guesswork is a sure way to sabotage your results, so a keyword generator tool should be a big part of your keyword research  strategy for PPC and SEO.
WordStream's industry-leading website keyword  tools deliver fast, accurate popular keywords  and long-tail search queries  that you can use to bring targeted, cost-effective traffic to your site. Before you start relying on generic free keyword generators, we'd like to inform you of their setbacks.
Google AdWords Keyword Tool As A Keyword Generator
Search marketers love to use Google AdWord's keyword tool as a keyword generator. Google's keyword tool is able to capture a huge volume of internet traffic and keyword variations, making it the default go-to alternative keyword generator. However, it has the following setbacks:
- Keyword suggestions are limited to a set of keywords based on the last time AdWord's database was updated, leaving out new trending keywords
- Keyword volume is a rounded monthly average of an unknown duration and volume of traffic, therefore showing unreasonable results for seasonal keywords
- Long tail keywords are rarely recommended because it is a tool designed for advertisers find keywords that can reach a high volume of visitors.
While we're excited to see Google's newly released Keyword Planner  tackling the issue of the lack of long-tail keyword combinations, the issues with rounding and missing keyword trends are big enough reasons for you to require additional keyword generators.
Bing Keyword Tool As A Keyword Generator
Bing's Keyword Tool can also be used as a free keyword generator. Where Google's AdWords Keyord Tool fails, Bing's Keyword Tool excels. Bing's keyword traffic data is exact, not rounded, and adustable by the date range you select. Furthermore, based on the date range you select, there is even a mini trends chart showing you the fluctuations of keyword volume, helping you identify seasonal keywords. However, Bing has the following setbacks:
- Lack of keyword volume data
- Lack of keyword suggestions
- Lack of long-tail keyword suggestions due to the lack of keyword volume data
Bing's Keyword Tool was designed very well as a keyword tool, but not as a free keyword generator.
