    How to get local search volumes?


    Hi Guys,

    I want to get search volumes for "carpet cleaning" for certain areas in Sydney, Australia.

    I'm using this process:

    Choose to ‘Search for new keyword and ad group ideas’.
    Enter the main keywords regarding your product / service
    Remove any default country targeting
    Specify your chosen location (s) by targeting specific cities / regions
    Click to ‘Get ideas’
    The problem is none of the areas, even popular ones (like north sydney, surry hills, newtown, manly) are appearing and Google keyword tool, no matches.

    Is there any other tools or sources of data i can use to get accurate search volumes for these areas?

    Any recommendations would be very much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Hey Mate

    Instead of doing it your way, try this.

    Go to Google, search your most prized keyword. See what site comes up first in search. Now go to your adwords and put in that site with the exact landing page as displayed in the SERPS.

    Now when you use Adwords tell it to get ideas from the site / landing page. Be prepared for a lot of info.

    I used Paul's Carpet Cleaning in Sidney, I got back a tremendous amount of data, avg, searches, competition, cost.

    I use SEMRush, but what KnowOneSpecial suggested also works, and its free.

    I've also tried https://keywordtool.io/. It'll give you KW suggestions for free, but you have to pay extra for the volume, which should be exact match.

    Also, if you're looking up search volume for multiple locations, I use this nifty little Keyword Multiplier: http://www.searchcommander.com/seo-t...d-list-mashup/. So, if you have 100 keywords, and 5 locations, it'll spit out 500 keyword phrases with the city included.
