You've likely seen predictive text suggestions or autocomplete suggestions when running a search. In some cases, these just make it faster and easier to type what you were going to type anyway.

We know well that having a blog attached to your site can do wonders for your SEO. There are plenty of stories of people doubling or tripling their organic traffic -- or more.

If you ever wonder how it's possible to choose keywords that users are going to search for, consider the fact that the majority of searches are just repeats. In fact, some estimates state that merely 20% of searches, or one out of every five, are actually new. It could be as low as 16%. Generally, people are searching for the same things that others have already searched for -- perhaps millions of times. Often, they're searching for things that they themselves have already searched in the past.
