To rank on Google or any other search engines, specially on 1st page, either you need to buy Ads or your post must be SEO optimized. In this post, I will explain why you should opt Keysearch as SEO tool as compared to Ahrefs, SEMrush, KWfinder or UberSuggest.
What is SEO?
In case SEO is a new term for you, SEO means Search Engine Optimization.
“Search engine optimization is the process of improving the quality and quantity of website traffic to a website or a web page from search engines. SEO targets unpaid traffic rather than direct traffic or paid traffic.”Wikipedia
What is meant by Keywords in SEO?
“Keywords are the words and phrases that people type into search engines to find what they are looking for.”Ahrefs
|Did You Know?|
|The first 3 search results in Google get over half of all traffic|
|Less than 1/4 of searchers bother to click page 2|
A webpage which is SEO optimized and targets the search intent of searcher through organized stuffing of keywords, has a high chance of ranking on the first page of Google.
However, apart from on-page SEO, off-page SEO is also required for ranking on Google. There is no clear formula or to do list, which can guarantee ranking. Google uses several algorithms to analyze pages.
Therefore, SEO tools are required to enable your website and webpages, to compete with others.
There are many Companies providing useful SEO tools like keywords explorer, backlinks checker, content analyzer, LSI words etc.
Free keywords finder
Since keywords finder is the main SEO tool and makes fortune for the top-ranking websites, all Companies (that I know) offer it as a paid tool. However, you can find for free, keywords and their volume through Google keywords planner.
The problem with this tool is the information provided, is not enough to let you cook the meal with ideal ingredients. For example, for new websites, they need to rank for keywords which are low in volume and has low competition. (Low in volume because the big Companies and Bloggers will not go after them.) When you will search it on Google keywords planner, you will get volume range, instead of exact volume.
In the above screenshot, you can see that I searched for blogging and Google gave average monthly search volume to be in range of 100,000 to 1 million. Further, Competition is identified as low, but, what are the websites competing for this keyword? What is their Domain Authority? How many Backlinks they have? This tool tells nothing about that.
Paid SEO tools
When you seek to find a paid SEO tool, there are big giants like Ahrefs and SEMrush. However, there prices are also high.
Ahrefs charges for 99$ for their starter pack, whereas SEMrush charges 99.95$ per month.
The question is whether you have fair enough budget to invest this much amount every month to buy the SEO tools? Most of the new bloggers struggle for months, until their websites start ranking, to let them get good traffic and consequently earn some pennies through Ads or Affiliate marketing.
What if I tell you that there is a Company providing similar services like Ahrefs and SEMrush and that too at a very economical price.
Why to opt Keysearch as SEO tool
Yes, this post is all about promoting Keysearch to be used as SEO tool. Please note that I am not working with Keysearch, nor having any affiliate links to earn Commission from subscriptions to their package. To be frank, I applied for affiliation, but denied due to unknown reasons. Still, I am writing and sharing about this tool which I believe to be a good one. Sharing is caring ?.
Keysearch offers the following:
- In-Depth Keyword Research
- Keyword Difficulty Checker
- SEO Competition Analysis
- Rank Tracking
- Brainstorm Niche Ideas
- YouTube Research
- Backlink Checker
- Webpage Audit Analyzer
- Competitive Analysis
All these tools are offered for only 17$ per month. Currently, they have a whopping 40% discount as Black Friday sale, which reduces the price to only 10.2$ per month. Ahrefs offers only 7 day trial for 7$ and here you are getting full month access for only 10.2 $.
If you are convinced to give it a try, you can buy it through the following link:
Black Friday coupon code: BF40
My suggestion is to subscribe monthly starter package and treat it like a trial, if you like it renew, otherwise cancel it. You can also plan your future post, and do keyword research within one month. Then after some time, repeat the same strategy. In this way, you can save some months’ subscription.
If you are still not convinced, I am giving below practical examples through screenshots to give idea of their tools.
How accurate is Keysearch keywords data?
I selected a keyword: blogging and searched it on SEMrush, Ubersuggest and Keysearch. Both gave the same search volume (location: US).
See the above screenshots: SEMrush, UberSuggest and Keysearch, all of them showed volume to be 246,000.
Note that I did not show results from Ahrefs. I personally don’t like Ahrefs. ? BTW I am not alone.
“Ahrefs uses the power of a URLs backlinks alone as a measure of a keyword’s difficulty. The text on the page, the length, and other factors are not used in determining a keyword’s competitiveness. In my opinion, this approach misses a big piece of the SEO pie.”Fatfrogmedia
Other features of keysearch’s keyword research tool
Apart from volume, PPC and CPC, keysearch also shows:
- past 12 months trend,
- related keywords volume and difficulty,
- top 10 ranking websites links, their PA / DA, backlinks,
- depicts whether keywords found in Title, description, and URL,
- traffic received by top websites,
- number of social shares each website has,
If the target keyword’s difficulty is higher, you can check for low difficulty keywords. Keysearch provides a filter to restrict the results with just one click.
Further, you can select two keywords and compare them within one window. No need to move to new page and return. I am not attaching screenshot here, as already the post is getting quite long.
There is a dedicated explorer window where you can check your competitor’s domain strength, backlinks and referring domains. List of keywords, the competitor is ranking for and the ranking distribution is also available.
If you want to brainstorm for your next article, keysearch can help you in that also. This feature shows latest twitter trends, amazon movers and trending google searches.
Further, just start typing your keyword and this tool wil show autocomplete suggestions from Google, Yahoo, Bing, Youtube, Amazon and Ebay.
Content assistant lets you analyze the content available on the internet for the searched keyword.
Find guest posts, forums and blogs relating to your niche or a specific keyword.
Page Analyzer will let you check for your website’s SEO content, links, keywords, website usability, optimization, and pagespeed insights.
Last but not the least, there is a tool for Youtube keywords research. It works the same way as above. Just it shows Youtube videos links instead of websites ranking for those keywords. If you have a Youtube channel also, this tool is a bonus for you.
If you are late in reading this post and black Friday is gone, you can still get 20% discount through this coupon code: KSDISC (KeySearch DISCount).
Recently I applied a trick through which I got Ubersuggest for lifetime for just 40$ instead of 120$.
Here is how:
- Subscribe to their monthly package 12 $ only.
- Before month ends, and the package is due for renewal, navigate to cancel subscription.
- To keep you subscribed to Ubersuggest, they will offer you other tier subscription, which is not visible on their pricing page. Yes, they offer lifetime subscription for just 40$.
Please note that Project and rank tracking feature is not available in this package.
I applied for Keysearch affiliate program again, and after seeing the article, they approve it. So, if you are planning to subscribe them, please do it through my affiliate link, so I can earn some commission. ?
