Building a Keyword Cloud from Keyword Discovery

  • Updated


Keyword Discovery monitors the behaviors of the buying committees at your target accounts and surfaces new keyword recommendations. 

You can use Keyword Discovery to identify new relevant keywords by:

  • Increasing click volume by capturing your buyers’ attention from a broader range of intent signals.
  • Getting an edge on your competitors and improving Search Engine Marketing (SEM) efficiency by finding keywords that are contextually similar but less intuitive – and therefore less competitive, and less expensive.

Keyword Discovery can also drive a great amount of value for content marketing and Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

  • Keyword Discovery results can give marketers a basis to audit the content on their sites, in
    order to:
    • Speak the buyers’ language by elevating the impact of your website and other digital channels with content that aligns to the demonstrated intent of your target accounts.
    • Maximize organic search traffic with an SEO strategy that reaches into adjacent content areas.
