Google's Wonder Wheel

Author -  Labyrinth Solutions

Google's new Wonder Wheel,  is a free and useful tool to help with optimising your website content for search terms that people are actually using. It's also a useful tool when you are searching for something and not quite getting the results you want.

So, what is it and where is it found? Basically it's just another tool within the standard Google Search Engine. It's based on mind mapping technology and shows in a wheel format alternative search terms to the one you entered.

You'll find it located in the normal Google search engine. Simply type in your search request as normal, for example 'website' as above and it'll either appear automatically, or you may have to click on 'more search options' on the left hand side and then on Wonder Wheel.

Let us know what you think about this. Also had you heard of it before you read it here? It has been out a few months now, but so far very few people seem to know about it, even those working in the web space.

Useful tip, though sometimes it doesn't seem to be there. Any ideas?

Hi Adam, I've left it a few days to respond just to check. It always seems to be there for me, but if it isn't for you, trying clicking under more search tools on the left.

It looks like Google have taken down this useful feature once again - I don't know why as it was extremely useful. They have done this before then reinstated it again, so best advice - Keep your eyes peeled and lets hope they do re-instate it!!

Hi Ammi,

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately a couple of months back Google took their wonder wheel down, supposedly temporarily whilst the site redesign was taking place.  

However, it looks as though it could be a more permanent thing as this article suggests
