  • Pay close attention to the part about mining Wikipedia entries for possible keywords!
  • Wikipedia is a great place to start if you're trying to come up with synonyms.
  • You'll use that list of keywords to search for articles about your topic later on.
  • Example: A smartwatch may sometimes be referred to as a "computerized wristwatch."
