Google Global Market Finder Tool

Thinking about expanding your business into foreign markets? Would you like to see how much traffic your product keywords would receive in Germany, Japan or maybe Brazil?

In the past, this type of research would require hiring translators to work along with your search engine marketing team, all in hopes of discovering a high-demand low-competition keyword in another country.

Fortunately, you no longer have to invest expensive resources into foreign market keyword research. Google’s recently released Global Market Finder can help you save time and money researching foreign markets online.

The Global Market Finder tool will translate your keywords into the languages you select. The tool will rank each location by market opportunity by combining search volume, suggested bid price, and competition for all of the translated keywords.

You can now quickly and inexpensively gauge foreign demand for your products and services. People in Brasil or Portugal may be frantically searching for products that are similar to yours, and if you’re lucky, you’ll unearth a hidden market demand – all through targeted global keyword research.

Google warns you that this tool is new and is not perfect. However, we recommend you experiment with it, and if you do find a golden keyword nugget we hope you invest more resources by setting up some test campaigns to see if the market demand materializes.
