Keyword Research Tool with Google Autocomplete API

By Mert Ural from

Update: I updated my Keyword Research Tool with Google Autocomplete API with some new features I think it will make it more like a real SEO tool and make keyword research easier.

Mert created a free SEO tool in a Google sheet to aggregate Google Autocomplete data. Google Autocomplete is an awesome tool to use to find out what the people are searching for. While some of Google API’s are limited and hard to use, the Google Autocomplete API is free, unlimited and works without API key.

What does this Google Autocomplete tool do?

With the help of Google Spreadsheets this Google Autocomplete tool makes it easier and faster to perform Keyword research for SEO and Content writing.

It provides you keywords via the Google Autocomplete API, very similar to Jaco’s free Infinite Suggest tool or Keywordshitter but searches for the keyword you entered and again for the suggested keywords of the result keywords.

Version 2.0 has been released below.

How to Use?


Here is a demo screenshot:

Quick Tutorial for better understanding but I believe after you start to use it you will get it out easily. Before you start you need to Click custom menu “KW Research” at the top right and click “Configure & Start”. (They will ask too many permissions but you can be sure I will have no access to any of your data, you can check out the codes. I just have a Google Analytics code on the popup when you click Configure.)

1.Write the keyword to start your research:

After the KW Ideas comes to screen you can click the + button to add them to your list!

2. Write new keywords to continue or click main topics:

You can click the main topics to continue with this keyword. It will be copied to Keyword cell. Also you can continue with typing new keywords.

3. You can make it automatic to adding to lists:

You don’t have to click + icon every time if you want to add all keywords to your list.

4. Filters:

Finally, you can use Negative and Positive filters to make your list better. For example on the case of Screenshot, I am doing a KW research for “iPhone 7” so I put it to “Positive” to avoid to see other stuff on my list, and also added some negatives that I am not interested for my content.

So if you want to restart your research click to (-). All saved Keywords will be deleted.

Note: If you have the main topics to choose from the list you can paste them “KW Topics” tab. KWs will be on the dropdown menu.

You can copy this Google Spreadsheet file to start use the tool.

Thanks ^_^

NOTE: For some, Google says it is not secure to use this script. BUT you can check all of the codes that I have no access to any of your data because you are copying the ALL code to your Drive and there is no other possible way to I can see your data.

Old Version 1.0

Just change the Keyword and Language to get the results!

“KW Research” tab is the main page of the tool. Just change the keyword in the grey area and you will get the autocomplete words.

“ALL KWs” tab will give you the list of all keywords so you can just copy them to share or get search volumes on Google Keyword Planner.

“KW Topics” is the tab, if you are sharing this tool with your content writer. You can just paste your main keywords for the topics and content writer will be able to choose the keyword from the drop-down menu on “KW Research” tab:

  1. Hi there,

    Is this still working? I entered a kw and it said it was tunning the script but the dummy phone kws are all that appear.

  2. Thanks. I changed the locale to Australia in the Spreadsheet settings, but I only get USA keywords (US cities and brands). What else needs to be modified for non-US users?
