How to Use ChatGPT for Keyword Research

This article is about using ChatGPT as a keyword research tool. It explains how ChatGPT can also be used to categorize keywords into keyword clusters, which is a very big deal nowadays for gaining that all-important authority on a topic.

ChatGPT and its brethren like Google's Bard and Microsoft's own implementation of OpenAI large language model (LLM) are my go-to resource when embarking on a new website project. Of course, I use all the standard keyword research tools as well (like Keywords Everywhere, for example).

I suggest you give it a try.

Well, that's all folks. I hope you enjoy this week's Mar-Tech Roundup! Stay tuned for next week's edition.
