The seed keyword is modified by adding letters a-z and numbers 0-9 and then keyword suggestions are fetched from the search engine.

Simply put the seed keyword in the left box and select the source engine and click start. SeoStack supports specifying multiple seed keywords at once.

It also supports specifying wildcard at different positions. For example ‘* iphone’ can be specified as the seed keyword and then the modifier letters would be placed in the wildcard position like this –

a iphone
b iphone

Using different combinations and keyword patterns the tool can be used to generate a large set of keyword ideas which would be long tail and topic based.
