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 more than 250 modifiers around your seed keyword.
Monthly/Yearly subscribers get a boosted version of the KWFinder leading to up to 5 times more keywords.
Eg for: why is chocolate *
When you insert the seed keyword: yacht, the tool will fetch every possible keyword idea around the seed keyword.

How does KWFinder differ from other tools?
Keep in mind that by using them, you will be competing for the same keywords with other SEO professionals.
What Kind of Keyword Ideas Will I Get with the KWFinder?
You’ll mostly get long-tail, low-volume, high-intent keywords.
💡 These keywords help you get relevant leads that are more likely to convert.
In your report, you’ll see all the generated keywords in the “All” tab. These are split between Suggestions and Questions.
Double quote searches
You can use double quotes around your seed keyword to find only keyword ideas that contain your seed keyword. For example: “best yacht for *” will generate keyword ideas of the type “best yacht for something.” 👇
You can use a wildcard operator - an asterisk (*) to find very specific keyword phrases. For example: “best yacht for *” will generate keyword ideas of the type “best yacht for something.” 👇
❗Fetch Volume and Use Filters
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).
Once you have the search volume, filter results based on it.
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.
Use the available filters to quickly scan through the ideas and hide any unwanted keyword ideas:
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.
👉 A narrow seed keyword will generate more targeted, long-tail keyword ideas that are more specific & interesting.
These keyword ideas are usually less competitive.

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 adult content, weapons, 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.
Rather than just thinking of dogs, consider topics such as dog breeds, dog activities, and dog toys.
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 always 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. 👇
