Yeah Google Wonder wheel is useful. A long time ago my guitar teacher told me You should learn and master music theory and scales on the guitar. Now im not talking about regular blues scale here im Talking about the 7 scales in the Major Scale :). After that you should completely forget about them and get em out of your head.
That theory i like to apply on Keyword Research too. I mean its a good starting point to learn some basic keyword research. But a lot of time especially in affiliate world products are out before there is any updates to the keyword databases. So I like to do some general research to see if that specific topic is searched for and then i fill my articles with a lot of buying keywords "theme them". I mean after all why go after those fishy general keywords when you can add 50 buying keywords yourself.
There was sometime ago a article on wordtracker on how to optimize your article for 10 000 keywords instead of 1 :) Which is a interesting read.
I do also love the keyword scrape functionality within scrapebox where you can get suggest keywords from a lot of interesting place not just search engines. Like amazon, shopping.com and so on.
Other tactic that i think is underused and is really great but it requires a bit of extra work. That is to check your site after a few months or so. What keywords people are searching for when they are finding your site. Quite often you will find some more interesting topics to write content about or optimize your content for. And thats really laser targeting because it truly is what customers are searching for.
