Sample: Best Keyword Research Tools

Let’s say you’re a new content creator, or you’ve been creating content for some time, be it Blog Posts, YouTube videos, or a small business selling products online but you haven’t been getting a lot of traffic on your site. Using SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tools such as SEMrush, Google Keyword Planner, or Long Tail Pro helps to increase the visibility of your content, thus increasing the amount of organic traffic.

With so many options, how do you know what SEO tool is right for you? Here’s a brief look at some SEO products that could help you!

1)    SEMrush

SEMrush is probably on the best SEO tools on the market. While other tools would produce a list of words for you to choose from, SEMrush gives you a list of approximately 10 keywords that are used by other competitors, however, you do have to dig a bit deep into your pockets for this one as their PRO account is $83 per month.

2)    Google Keyword Planner

Google Keyword Planner is a simple platform with a few features. While there are a few things that this platform is lacking it is the most accurate source of keyword data as the information comes directly from Google and works well with AdSense. This service is free.

3)    KWFinder

KWFinder is an easy to use tool with very little difficulty and has a lot of great features such as; the ability of find keywords in any language, the option to choose keywords from a great list of keywords, and SERP (Search Engine Results Page) overview with suggestions. While they are one of the cheaper options at $30 per month, they are a trusted company used by corporations such as Airbnb, Adidas, and Deloitte.

4)      Answer the Public

Answer the public generates words using the questions asked to Google’s autocomplete results and is a great way to generate topics. While this tool is free, there is a limit of two searches for free per day.

5)    Ahrefs’ Keyword Generator

Ahrefs’ pulls 100 keyword ideas from an extensive database of over 10 billion words covering 170 countries and also provides an estimated search volume for each suggestion. The biggest draw to this is that you can also search for keywords across Bing, YouTube, and Amazon.

6)    Screaming Frog

One of the best tools to help fix any technical SEO problems hands down has to be the Screaming Frog. This amazing tool gets into every nook and cranny of your site and generates a report detailing any potentially problematic issues and also has a nifty tool to help locate any duplicate content.

These programs are all amazing, but the key is to find something that works for you. Do some research, look at the pros and cons. A great way of figuring out what other programs are out there is not only searching online but posting questions on support group boards. Network, and don’t be afraid to talk to other content creators and see what other options are available.
