Google's Autocomplete is a tool that can help round out your research by providing keywords as seen through the searchers experience. When a searcher begins to type into the search box on Google.com, additional keywords are offered for searches that could be similar to what is typed. Google's algorithm works to predict search queries in real-time based on indexed web pages, personalized search history, other users' search activity, and Google+ (for person's name).
