Free Open Source Keyword Phrase List Generator

Nov 10th

Probably the least exciting of the SEO / SEM tools I have created so far, but recently my friend Mike created a keyword phrase list generator.

I made it open source, so if you like it feel free to link to it, mirror it, or improve it.

Aaron,

Not sure quite where the problem is located in the source code, but this thing adds an escape character \ to quotes on phrase matches when you store them and then use the combine button to put them back into the main list. This is a minor annoyance, we have to pull the lists into Notepad and remove the slashes with a find and replace.

nice tool! useful functions, clean, quick and easy - reminds me very much of the tools I used in my previous job at a known Search Engine company :-)

Some suggestions:
- Tool would be even handier if you inserted the lists of words not comma separated but each word in single line. That way you can directly copy and paste existing simple KW lists from the AdWords "edit KWs" section.
- add extra function "group keywords" by...: allow to define grouping words for the final list of concatenaded KWs. Good for organizing KW groups for different adgroups
- add checkbox for negative KWs (would add a hyphen '-' in front of KWs)
- add de-dupe functions: so you can copy and paste your current KWs from AdWords into tool and de-dupe with new generated KW list, allows you to easily add only new KWs to your account. e.g. "create new list of KW existing in list 1 but not in list 2"

Well, some thoughts.

its a great tool. Where can i download the source code??

I took down the source code as lots of people were taking our tools, dropping attribution, and then wrapping them in ads for competing service.

In essence I was subsidizing the affiliate ad stream for competing business models, and decided that didn't make sense.
