How Effective is ChatGPT for Finding SEO Keywords and Phrases?

Have any of you tried using ChatGPT to find SEO keywords and phrases? I’m curious about how effective it is and if it’s really worth using for optimizing content. What do you guys think?


Hey, if you mean keyword research, it’s best to use a dedicated keyword research tool. ChatGPT is great for brainstorming blog topic ideas, but for actual keyword data, you should dive deeper with tools like LowFruits or SEMrush.

If you’re looking into terms and term frequency for on-page optimization, it’s better to check out the competition using Google’s NLP tool or other options like NeuronWriter, Frase, or Surfer SEO.

Hope that helps!


You could take the data from Google Keyword Planner and plug it into ChatGPT. You’ll need the premium version for this because it has the advanced data analysis feature. This way, you’re working with real data instead of just AI-generated keywords.

I suggest not going overboard with those fancy AI-suggested words. Keep it simple and easy to understand, using synonyms where you can. AI can definitely lend a hand in some areas, though.

Here’s how it can help:

  1. Idea Generation
    You can use ChatGPT to brainstorm keyword ideas based on your niche or target audience.
    It’s great for coming up with a list of potential topics and related keywords that you might not have thought of.

  2. Content Suggestions
    ChatGPT can help you generate content ideas that naturally include relevant keywords and phrases.
    This can help in creating a diverse content strategy.

3.Competitor Analysis

While it can’t analyze competitors directly, you can use ChatGPT to understand common practices in your industry and suggest potential keywords they might be targeting.

  1. Understanding Context

    ChatGPT can provide context for how keywords are typically used, which can help in writing more naturally optimized content.

However, for in-depth keyword research, you’d still want to use specialized SEO tools like Google Keyword Planner, Ahrefs, SEMrush, or Moz. These tools provide data on search volume, keyword difficulty, competition, and other metrics that ChatGPT doesn’t have access to.
Combining the creative suggestions from ChatGPT with the data-driven insights from SEO tools can give you a strong keyword strategy.
