One valuable search tool I often used was spacky.com. However in the past several weeks I have been unable to access spacky. Is it because Google AdWords shoved them out of the market?
I enjoyed using spacky.com. But now I'm wondering what happened to them. They never advertised. I found out about them through word of mouth. I liked the idea of venturing into territories other than Google, though I must admit I accessed Google a lot too.
But now I'm left with only Google AdWords as my keyword tool. I should ask myself why I would even need another tool for locating words that would sell my writing, but I don't. And in this age of SEO (search engine optimization), knowing which words to use helps tremendously.
Another place I should visit frequently, but I forget to visit is Google Trends. If you want to know what's HOT and be assured that what you write will be noticed, check out Google Trends. Maybe it's because I don't want to force myself to write about things just because they're popular, and maybe it's because I don't want to compete with thousands of other writers who want to write about something only because it's HOT, but I must admit, I'd really like more people to read what I write, so I'm trying to pay attention to what works and what doesn't.
Google AdWords works. Sadly, spacky doesn't anymore.
