Need Key Word search tools

Need Key Word search tools

I need free tools which let me search for words that are used very often. This is for SEO, since I want a high hit rate.

What can you suggest? And what other advice can you offer on SEO? I am starting with my YouTube channel...and will use these key words in the meta-data.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Adding to the meta data like that will not have influence as you expect.   What you want to do is go deep with your content and keep your keywords and keyphrases in your content that is supported by your headings.

One free resource is Google Trends  You can compare words and phrases such as Super Bowl Snacks If you sort the related queries by "Top" you will see, "healthy super bowl snacks"  are  a top related search phrase with related topics to the left (on desktop view).

As Lucas stated, any large site with an auto suggest tool will be useful.

YouTube. Amazon. Google.

Another useful tool is the Google Keyword Tool. Recently Google hobbled this a great deal + it's still always the first place I start.
