I just came across a service called Ubersuggest.org. If you’re familiar with Google’s keyword suggestion tools then you’re already familiar with what the Ubersuggest service is after. Basically their service automatically scrapes the Google Suggest service using any seed keyword or phrase of your choosing. In addition to simply running one query for the keyword you provide, it enumerates through alphabet and numbers 1-9 to gather all results with that letter or number as the start of the next word in the phrase.
It’s an interesting service. Such an interesting service that before I had run across it, I wrote a tool of my own to combine the suggest services of Google, Yahoo, Bing and Amazon to do the same automated keyword suggest scraping and enumeration. It’s written in Bash and I’ve posted the full source code on my blog. The cool thing is, you can see that it isn’t all that complicated to write a tremendously helpful tool like that.
Keyword Suggest Sources
Like I mentioned above, my tool uses Google, Yahoo, Bing and Amazon, which I thought was a good start. Ubersuggest doesn’t reveal their sources so I cannot be sure where their data comes from. One thing is for sure, my script is very comparable (if not more diverse).
I don’t plan to stop there either. I want to add more sources to my suggest scraping. Here’s my list for future versions.
If you have others in mind I should add to the list or add to the top of the list, please leave a comment! It may motivate me to do it this weekend!
I just made a post about how to integrate Blekko’s search suggest functionality into a bash script. Check out the full post for more details.
