Are there multiple ways to mis-spell your company name? Use that as an advantage to helping you get found online.
  4. Collocation Dictionary: Collocation dictionaries allow you to come up with words that share a theme with your root word and may be used in combination with. You can describe a concept and get back a list of words and phrases related to it.

      • Dummy Incorporators
      • Adventure Capitalist
      • Commitment
      • Labor

      • automobile
      • vehicle
      • motor car

      • convertible
      • SUV
  6. Wikipedia: Most  people don’t think about this step. But Wikipedia actually allows you to do some research about a keyword you may know little about. Rather than read scattered information all over the internet, Wikipedia can give you a list of words in some category. Use it to look up other home business or network marketing companies. Or if you want to know what ailments can be prevented with the use of B12 vitamins.
  7. Amazon: This is a sneaky keyword hack for my network marketing friends. Does your company recommend books to read? What if you did blog reviews on the books your company recommends? Tagging both your MLM and the book itself. (recommend becoming an affiliate of Amazon)

I have use this tool multiple times to find out what it going on in my company world wide. It makes me look like I am staying on top of my game. Google does all the research and then sends you and email with the information you requested.

      Chef! this was amazing. More research to be done. I didn’t know about quite a few of these and I like the collocation and thesaurus idea. Sometimes we over look the obvious!
