In this article, I’m going to show you my favourite SEO tools.
The best part:
Every single tool on this list is 100% free.
if you’re looking for tools that will help you get higher Google rankings you’ll love this article.
Most keyword research tools work the exact same way and to receive keyword into a tool and get a list of suggestions.
The problem with this approach is this:
Everyone types the same exact seed keywords into these tools.
No wonder most keywords are super competitive, that’s where Seed keywords come in.
it helps you sidestep this problem.
instead of pulling Seed keywords out of thin air.
You actually ask customers how they found you online. then you use those seed keywords in a traditional keyword research tool.
for example, let’s say you are running an online flower delivery e-commerce site.
Well, you do see seed keywords to create what’s called a scenario.
basically, you ask people how they would search for what you sell.
Then send scenarios to narrative people and if you’re like me he’ll be surprised at the responses that you get.
finally put the term that finds into your favourite keyword tool and you’ll find some untapped keywords that your competitors don’t know about yet.
it includes serperator on this list just because it has a name that kind of sounds like Terminator although that didn’t hurt.
with that here’s how this tool works:
As you probably know the search results change dramatically depending on where you are and the device that you’re using.
in this awesome tool helps to check out the search results across different locations and devices.
All you need to do is specify your device and location and you’ll see exactly how the results will look for someone searching from that location using that device, pretty cool.
You probably know that finding new trending keywords is an SEO gold mine and it’s simple math.
if you targeted old keywords there going to be more blog posts, articles, YouTube videos, and content in general that you have to compete with.
when you target a new keyword that is trending up you get in early before the search results get super competitive.
for example a while back I wrote a post optimized around the keyword mobile SEO and was relatively new even though that keyboard didn’t have a ton of searches yet.
I knew that Google had been rolling out updates that penalize sites that weren’t mobile-optimized.
which meant that searches for that keyword were primed to explode and because I got in super early I was able to carve out a top-three ranking for these growing terms.
A ranking that I still hold to this day.
The question is how do you find these new trending terms what you could use Google Trends with the issue with Google trends is that you already need to know what you’re looking for.
In another word, Google Trends is great for confirming a trend on a keyword that you already know about.
but it’s not really helpful for coming up with new trends and topics.
Answer exploding topics:
WIth exploding topics, you get a list of the new trend of keywords present to you on a silver platter and the tool has a database of trending topics across several different industries.
including Health, Fitness, marketing, fashion, consumer products and more.
you probably heard of LSI keywords before, they’re basically words and phrases that are closely related to your Mainkeyword, and when you include these terms in your content Google ceases your content as comprehensive.
which can give you a nice little rankings boost for example let’s say your target keyword is Star Wars.
LSI keywords for Star Wars would be things like Luke Skywalker, Jedi, Princess Leia, and the Millennium Falcon.
so how do you find LSI keywords a very cool free tool called LSI Graph.
just enter a Target keyword into the tool and you will get a list of LSI keywords that you can sprinkle into your content pretty cool.
Tubebuddy is a free Chrome extension that helps to optimize YouTube videos for SEO.
for example, if you want to use some of the same tags that another video is using, you can use tube buddy to easily see those tags and use them in your video.
Or let’s say you are looking for a keyword to optimize your video around, you can use tube buddy to see the competition level on YouTube’s first page for that keyboard.
word tracker Scout takes kind of a unique approach to keyword research instead of entering a keyword into a tool or the tracker scans a page and finds keywords that show up over and over again.
That way you can go over to one of your competitor’s pages and grab the keyboard that they’re already using in their content.
You can even sort the list of keywords by the opportunity which are terms that have the best ratio of search volume and competition.
