I know Google Trends/Zeitgeist. But what I'm looking for is a service where you can enter, for example "Politics", and then the service gives out the most popular queries containing "Politics"-keyword in the query, so I can see the other keywords people are using in combination with it.

Use Google Insights for Search (Beta).

Just enter your search term(s) in the search box and hit Enter. You will see the top searchs and rising searches about your search term listed below.

    Great, thanks. If you download the .csv file on top you get some more search terms than the listed ones.

  • The link to Google Insights for Search now redirects to the Google Trends homepage. I wonder if this service is still available anywhere. Commented Apr 6, 2013 at 2:19

You can use Google's autocomplete, if you type in a keyword it gives you a few suggestions which seem to be pulled of the most popular query (although surely heavily filtered). You can also try to add a space before you word after you typed it in to get a few new results.

    +1 thanks, didn't thought of this, tested it a bit. Unfortunately people seem not to use more than 3 search words, then auto-completion mostly stops. I still would prefer a bit more detailed statistical data.
