     1.Get keywords from YouTube instant search
Our first step is to do the search on YouTube. Let's you want to get keywords related to "Health Tips". We do search on YouTube to get related keywords for your main keyword.

Type your main keyword in the search bar, when you type your main keyword, you get auto suggestions. These are the search queries that people are searching for the most. These are highly related keywords and Google/YouTube loves them.

     2. Use Google Keyword Planner

Now we have a list of keywords, and in this step, we will get the monthly searches volume data by using Google Keyword Planner (GKP).

Head over to the GKP and run all your keywords through Google Keyword Planner. Here you will get the monthly volume of your keywords. You can ignore keywords that are not related to your topic. Also, remove the same keywords from the list.

Only use those keywords that have high monthly searches and low competition.

     3. Make Use Of YouTube Trends

YouTube Trends is really a super cool tool for me as it provides me with the interest in the topic. It shows the interest in graphs.

Put your keyword in YouTube Trend and look, is still people are searching for those keywords? If yes, don't late and target that keyword. 

The feature that I love most is that it gives me related keywords. Let's say untapped keywords, that can be the goldmine for me.

The process of getting keywords from Google is same as YouTube Keyword Research that we performed in step 1.

Most of the SEO experts suggest using UberSuggest keyword tool. Because it provides a lot of keywords followed by each alphabet.

Just type your main keyword and it will create a lot of keywords. Pick some of the keywords from there also to get a better result. I recommend it you for useful keyword ideas.
