Is it possible to get ALL of your 'keywords' and 'keyword phrases' exclusively from 'Google's Keyword Suggestion Tool?'

Sure, why do you ask?

Well, with so many other keyword tools out there (i.e. WordTracker, Keyword Discovery) one has to wonder whether they are getting the whole picture.

Thanks for the assurance.

No one tool is going to give you the whole picture. They're all like the old story of the blind men and the elephant -- the man who grabbed the trunk thought an elephant was something like a snake; the man who grabbed the leg thought an elephant was something like a tree, the man who leaned against its side thought an elephant was something like a wall, and so forth... cool.gif

Each tool will only give you perspective on the slice of web searches to which they have access. Since each one has access to a different subset of searches, they will likely each one show at least somewhat different results. Sometimes wildly different results. blink.gif

It's enough to make a body crazy. tease.gif

You can pick one tool that seems to generally give you good results, or use several and try to come up with some "average" answers. If Google's tool seems to be giving you answers that correspond roughly to your real-world experience, as Jill says, you can certainly use just that one. There's no rule that says you have to use any specific tool or combination of tools -- or any tools at all, for that matter.

The only thing that will really tell the tale is actual experience -- rubber hitting the road type stuff -- with your specific phrases and your specific audience and your specific site. That's why you'll often hear people advising folks to use the keyword tools only as a starting point, and try running limited AdWords campaigns to verify and refine what the tools are telling them.
