Hi Kathy,

You can find out more information about the Keyword Planner here, there is also a link to go directly to the tool. It's also available directly from your AdWords account in the 'Tools' menu.

Hi Kathy,

The keyword planner is great, as PPCBossman mentioned. You should also make a list of the things that you would search for if you were looking for your product. Also consider building out a campaign to bid on your competitors terms.

Last but not least, be sure to consider what keywords you DONT want to show for and make a list of negatives as you go! Hope this helps!

I also like to look at some outside tools if I'm stuck. Check out the free version of KeywordSpy.com -- You can look up competitor domains as well as your target keywords and get an idea of how much they cost. I like to "round up" the CPCs so that clients aren't surprised if our costs start out higher during early optimization.
