The Keyword Finder (KWFinder) is an effective tool for finding keyword ideas.

It generates keyword suggestions based on seed keywords. It uses mainly Google's Auto Complete feature to generate a high volume of long-tail keyword ideas.

In a nutshell:

  • The KWFinder helps you find keyword ideas that people are looking for

  • The KWFinder uses hundreds of modifiers around your seed keyword to extract keyword ideas from Google.

  • Monthly/yearly subscribers get access to a boosted version of the KWFinder (up to 5 times more keyword ideas generated in some cases).

  • Unique keywords: many keyword tools only get your keywords from Google Keyword Planner. We've worked on fetching data from Google Auto Suggest to get more and better keyword ideas.

  • Unique keyword ideas with double quotes, wildcard searches, and more.

  • Fetch search volume

  • Use our advanced filters to filter down your results.

  • Hide irrelevant topics and keywords.

What is Google Auto Complete?

As you enter a search term in the Google search bar, you'll notice a dropdown menu featuring a selection of keyword suggestions.

These proposed keywords are connected to your initial search term and derived from user search queries.

Getting keyword ideas is the foundation of any SEO strategy, as it lets you know what people are searching for.

Focus on the wrong topics, and you’ll spend resources that won’t lead to any results.

How Does the LowFruits KWFinder Work?

The Keyword Finder is a Google Auto Complete extractor on steroids. It uses techniques like:

  • Alphabet Soup Method (learn more)

  • High-intent modifiers around your seed keyword to extract questions and high-intent keywords:

    • ”How to X,” “Why X,” “Can X,” etc.

    • ”Best X,” “Alternative to X,” “Ideas for X,” etc.

  • Cursor position variations (learn more)

  • Other secret methods 🤫

In total, it uses hundreds of modifiers around your seed keyword. Monthly and yearly subscribers receive an enhanced version of KWFinder, which can generate up to five times more keywords in some instances. Eg for: why is chocolate * (without/with the booster).

How does KWFinder differ from other tools?

💡 Tools such as AnswerThePublic and AnswerSocrates use Google Auto Complete keyword extraction but with a limited number of modifiers around your seed keyword. Keep in mind that by using these tools, you will be competing with other SEO professionals for the same keywords.

Double quote searches

You can use double quotes around your seed keyword to find only keyword ideas that contain your seed keyword. For example: "yacht" will generate keyword ideas only with the word yacht.

Wildcard Searches

You can use a wildcard operator - an asterisk (*) - to get specific keyword phrases. For example: best yacht for * will generate keyword ideas of the type “best yacht for something.” 👇

Bracket Searches

Use brackets [ ] to get keyword ideas around a pre-defined list of words.

Keyword ideas will include values defined in the pre-defined list and the text around the brackets.

You can find some pre-defined lists and also define your lists here.

This is very useful if you only want to focus on location-based keywords.

Example: what to do in [fr_cities] => only keywords that contain "what to do in" and French cities.

Fetch Monthly Search Volumes

Fetch the search volume to get estimated search volumes and CPC for the target country/language. (The data source for search volumes is the official Google Ads API).

Why Use Low-Volume Keywords?

Even though low-volume keywords may not seem appealing at first, they have several advantages:

  • They are usually very targeted and can bring in targeted leads.

  • They help you build topical authority (learn more).

  • They are usually less competitive (also because fewer people believe in their power).

  • Your article will rank for several secondary keywords.


Should I use a broad or narrow seed keyword?

👉 A broad seed keyword will generate some general keyword ideas and can help you better understand the topics related to your business.

These keyword ideas are usually more competitive.


  • WordPress

  • SEO

  • Dog

👉 A narrow seed keyword will generate more targeted, long-tail keyword ideas that are more specific & interesting.

These keyword ideas are usually less competitive.


  • WordPress plugin

  • Internal linking

  • Golden retriever training

I didn’t get many keyword ideas

Your search might be too narrow (i.e. not many people are searching for your keyword).

I got no results

Very narrow or sensitive topics like weapons, drugs, etc., won’t return any results. If your search is too narrow, try broadening it. Also, check your "Exclude" field. It might contain a filter like [country]

Some of the keyword ideas are in other languages

The KWFinder extracts keyword ideas from Google Auto Complete. Sometimes Google Auto Complete generates keyword ideas in other languages. LowFruits has language detection but in some cases, the keywords are the same in several languages and are hard to detect.

You can hide these keywords using the hiding icon or use the high-intent filter to focus only on high-intent keywords in your target language.

A few tips

  • Brainstorm topic ideas before conducting keyword research. Consider dog breeds, activities, and toys rather than just thinking of dogs. Compile a comprehensive list of seed keyword ideas (such as "dog activities") and use them as the basis for keyword research in LowFruits.

  • Merge reports (before analysis). Merge reports that are related to the same topic (e.g. reports for “dog activities” and “dog toys”). You’ll gather all the data in one place.

  • Are you constantly working in the same country and language? Save time and define the default settings in your user settings.

  • Do you want to know the global search volume (not country-specific)? Uncheck the corresponding switch. 👇
