I have written here about the value of knowing the right keywords to use to reach your desired audience. Unfortunately, Google Keywords – one of the best free tools to use for keyword research – is no longer available.
Fortunately, there are alternatives. Here are some. Share any others that you know and like.
- SEO Book Keyword Tool offers search volumes by market for Google, Yahoo, and Bing and links them to related global search results.
- Ubersuggest offers keyword ideas from real user queries.
- WordStream Keyword Tool has free and paid services. It offers options for identifying negative keywords, keyword grouping, and finding keyword niches.
- Wordtracker shows you what people are searching for, gives you suggestions for keyword phrases, and computes how much competition you might face for the terms you select. A free account is required.
