    Hello,

    After writing a script to generate a large number of keywords (takes in a list of base keywords and a list of adjectives; outputs a list of keywords with adjectives appended both before and after the keywords), I have a huge list of automatically generated keywords.

    Is there a better solution than paying a an overseas VA like $2 per hour to run this through Keyword Planner? LTP and other paid tools still have caps on usage that make it difficult to get data on 2,000,000+ keywords.

    Even if you did one run of keyword planner (1,000 KWs max) every minute, this is still 30+ hours of work. Not even considering cost, this is a long-ass time to wait for keyword research.

    Goal here is to be able to shotgun out millions and millions of low-quality automatically generated keywords and to see what sticks, which would be much easier if there is a better way to analyse this many keywords.

    Have looked around online and on BHW already. Still looking for a faster approach.

    Any chance you can elaborate on this tool and provide examples of YOUR recommended usage of this tool?

    All the best.

    Update / Edit: Ended up hiring a VA to run 2,000,000 keywords through Keyword Planner for $20. Supposedly he can get it done within 24 hours. We'll see if that happens.

    Might update this thread if it comes back with good or useful results. Could also post the script if anyone is interested.

    GrepWords -- Looks interesting. Main issue here is that lots of these automatically generated KWs might not be in their database.

    Once when I found about that service, I've simply looked at it as automated way to do everything that keyword planner does (but now you can't just go in with any free acct and get that data as far as I know). Personally I don't ever like to do with browser anything that I can do with any type of API so once when I've realized about this site I must say I was quite happy. :)

    Are you looking for search volumes or multiple metrics that keyword planner can provide?

    Finally got around to putting this together. You can find that below. Any comments or suggestions, let me know.

    Readme covers how to run the script.

    When this thread was made, I was only looking at search volume, the purpose being to weed out the junk keywords (i.e., keywords automatically generated that no real person would ever search). I did get the report from the VA with KW search volume. Am in the process of gathering other metrics on the actual useful keywords now that large amounts of junk keywords have been weeded out.
