One of the comments on the article I wrote for Wordtracker mentioned WordsFinder, which allows you to create a list of keywords from a piece of content. Their tool uses the Yahoo! Term Extraction Tool, and also provides a few additional keywords next to the results. Three other easy ways to get similar information are
- Use the Yahoo! Term Extraction Tool. Philipp Lessen offers free code for the Yahoo! term extraction tool, which I also posted in my tools section here.
- Enter a URL into the Google AdWords keyword suggestion tool. Note this tool has two options, one for grabbing keywords for a page, and one for grabbing keywords for the page and other pages that the page links at.
- See what AdSense ads Google will target on a page using their free AdSense preview tool.
If you find some of the leading keywords for a competing site via tools like Compete.com (or SpyFu, SeoDigger, etc.), or via site targeted AdSense ads you can see what keywords and pages are most worth emulating. If your keyword list is too long to make sense out of consider running it through Google's Traffic Estimator tool to find which keywords are the most valuable.
If you have more authority and target more valuable keywords and traffic streams you win. :)
