How to use Google’s Wonder Wheel to choose the right keywords for your Website?

by MK on September 19, 2009

On May 2009 Google released this new wonderful feature called Google Wonder Wheel . And rightly named it is truly a wonder.

Wonder Wheel became a favorable feature to many due to the layout and result display which basically get the work done for the user as far as relevant and related search results go.

So what is Wonder Wheel?

Google Wonder Wheel is a tool which shows related search terms to the current searched query. It is like a magic wand for website and blog owners who are looking for the right keywords (related to there niche) to use in there web articles/content.

Wonder wheel enables you to explore relevant search terms in a very intuitive and user friendly way.

How to use Wonder Wheel?

To try Google’s Wonder Wheel you need to go to Google’s search page. Wonder Wheel option is hidden by default. You will see a Show Options link at the upper left hand side (as shown in the image) after you search for the keyword.

To show Wonder Wheel – Click on the Show Options link and you will see Wonder Wheel in the list of options. Click on Wonder wheel and there you go, you have opened the magic door to the keywords land.


To demonstrate the usage lets take an example.

Lets assume you are a blog owner and your niche is web hosting. You are writing an article on  – Full Trust Hosting. Now everyone wants to be ranked number ONE on Google for the targeted keywords and or niche, and to do that you must be looking for the right keywords to use in this article.

As the following image shows, I went to Google and searched for Full Trust Hosting. Than I clicked on Wonder Wheel option and I got a screen similar to the image below.


Now you will see all the related keywords for Full Trust Hosting as child nodes of the wheel. These are the related keywords for Full trust Hosting that Google Users are using to reach the web sites related to Full Trust Hosting.

You can further drill down the wheel by clicking on related keywords. I clicked on asp net hosting full trust and the wheel expanded the network to create another connected wheel for asp net hosting full trust. You can drill down as much you want to check all the keywords Google Users are using for related search terms.


This gives you a fool proof way of finding the right keywords and now its really up to you to use those keywords effectively in your web articles. Google’s Wonder Wheel is a perfect tool for exposing your small business website or blog to the right user base.

Wonder wheel is good for structuring your website – finding keywords to use as your categories and tags. If “full trust hosting” is the main keyword you’re trying to rank for then first level of child nodes that are related to what you will be writing about should be your categories and second level should be your tags.
