How to select a search method
To find keywords follow these steps:
  • Click on the "Find" tab
  • Enter your Base Keyword (a keyword you would like to expand)
    Instead of working with a signle base keyword you can enter a list of keywords by clicking on button located on the right side of the Base Keyword entry box.
    When working with a keyword list the base keyword entry box will display: "USING KEYWORD LIST".

    • Yahoo Related Keywords: Spiders Yahoo for related keywords (excellent source)
    • Google Proximity Search: Spiders websites that have top positions for your base keyword, and expands your base keywords based on that data.
