When no keyword suggestions are found, this typically means that the search phrase is simply too long and contains too many words resulting in a very narrow search topic. It is always best to try searching with one or two words first and see what comes back.
Or better yet, the try using the root words of the search phrase.
For example, if the search phrase was “lemon juicer squeezer heavy duty” (without quotes) and no keyword suggestions are returned, the root words would be “lemon juicer” or “lemon squeezer.” These two phrases would be a good place to start searching for keyword suggestions. Alternatively, juicer or squeezer could also be used.
Rank values can range from 1 to 10, which represents the popularity of a given keyword relative to the other keyword suggestions found.
All of the keyword suggestions shown are retrieved in real time from the corresponding auto complete service. That being the case, Google, Amazon, eBay, Bing, and so on do not publish exactly how often they update the keyword suggestions for their auto complete services. However, some data and research indicates that the keyword suggestions are constantly being updated on an hourly and daily basis.
The auto complete services of Google, Amazon, eBay, and Bing do not provide search volume information for keyword suggestions and since our keyword tools leverage these auto complete services we do not offer search volume as it would be misleading and in most cases completely inaccurate.
Most of these other keyword tools are showing search volume data from Google that is publically available to anyone using Google’s AdWords advertising tool Keyword Planner. While this information may be helpful when targeting Google search it should be pointed out that is only applies to Google’s network of services.
Be very suspicious of keyword tools that offer search volume data for other services like Amazon, eBay, and Etsy as this information is not publically available and is only obtained if an advertising campaign is ran for a given keyword using the highest bid for an entire month.
It is completely normal for the Keyword Tool Dominator Google Chrome extension to be shown as a gray icon in the Google Chrome menu bar since it works behind the scenes with our keyword tools only on our website.
The technical reason for the extension icon being grayed out is because there is no user interface or web page for the extension to be displayed since it works as a background process for our keyword tools to unlock the power of auto complete. Therefore Google Chrome, by design, shows any extension icon that works as a background process with a gray icon indicating there is no user interaction available.
