What is the best keyword tool?

64 replies
Hello everyone. I am new here so please welcome me, lol. :p

Ok here is my question. I have 2 sites that I want to get in the first page of google very fast through seo. I know that the trick to this is finding a low competition long tail keyword with at least 1000 searches or more per month, and then after having this keywords, all I have to do is buy some high page rank edu and gov backlinks and I am guessing I will be on google first page within day or in less than a month right?

I heard about traffic travis, keyword elite, market sumaria, keyword spy, niche finder, etc..

I know some of them are very expensive. I don't want to keep paying people for them to do my keyword research for me. I am looking for an easy one to understand but that delivers excellent results, that is very accurate, and that can give me the keywords that will easily rank on google first page with little effort through backlinking from some edu and gov backlinks or paying someone to run a SENUKEX campaign even though I don't have any articles. Maybe they can run it just with my url and keywords.

Ok please help me.

Thank you warrior forum members

    I used to use Market Samurai; however, now that I know what I'm usually looking for, I just use Google Adwords Keyword Tool and look at the competition without a tool.

    I'd be interested in hearing what the best tools are, currently.

    When you find that, don't say anything to anyone! You'll be the only person on the planet that has that...whatever it is.

    Most keyword tools are not that accurate. If you really want to get an idea of what a keyword will do, run a ppc campaign. That's an expensive solution, but probably the most accurate.

    I use the Google Keyword Tool and my head. I have yet to find a software that beats that...

    I think you should spend some time learning how to do proper keyword research.

    Keyword research is not the kind of job you give to a machine or a piece of software.

  • First thing first, USE YOUR HEAD!

    Second, you can use GAKT but I personally use SEcockpit (not an affiliate link). For me, it is 100 times better than GAKT. You can do all your keyword research all from one place. You can do competition analysis. Create projects and loads of other things. Just watch the video on the main page. It will show you a bit of what it can do.

    I agree, SEcockpit is the way to go.

    • Profile picture of the author raywarrior1978
      Yeah but using the google keyword tool, not for ppc purposes but for seo purposes, is only good to see the number of global searches and local searches and then using the word, putting it into google within quotation marks to see the number of pages you are competing for.

      It won't show you the page rank of the other sites, the number of backlinks, etc.. I thought traffic travis and market samuraii did all of this for you, just to save you time, because from what I heard even from experience marketers is that keyword research takes a long time to find those golden keywords, and those software above find them for you fast.

      I don't mine speing the extra money and learning how to use it, but if you guys recommend me not to use it, then please tell me how to do proper keyword research for free.

      I am not familiar with pr0-pr8 i don't understand that,
      also i heard that edu and gov backlinks are very powerful but i also heard that the backlinks must come from relevant sites that are relevant to your niche.

      OMG so much confusion, everytime I get a different opinion, from different forums and watching youtube video.

      Is there an expert in here that can settle this in for all, lol.

      Sorry don't mean to sound like a dummie, just in here trying to learn.

      Mistakes equal experience and knowledge, just trying to avoid too many costly mistakes and hope to learn from you guys!

      Thank you all

      I use Market Samurai and have also used Micro Niche Finder, Keyword Blueprint, and SEMRush. I find Market Samurai to be the most usable and versatile. It was very buggy for a while there but has been very reliable lately. Micro Niche Finder is a powerful tool but I think the learning curve is a bit steeper than Market Samurai.

      SEMRush has a free version, just go to SEMRush.com and register and you can use the free version. It only returns a limited number of keywords per search, though. You have to upgrade to get all the keywords.

      Keyword Blueprint is also free and is quite a good tool, but it had some usability issues the last time I tried it. For instance, you couldn't import a list of keywords from another source and then analyze them, like you can with Market Samurai, and the interface for downloading the results of keyword analysis was kind of lame. They may have improved, I haven't used it in quite a while. If you google Keyword Blueprint, you can find it for free.

    I have Micro Niche Finder and Market Samurai. Both of them are excellent tools. I do think that there is a tad more versatility in Market Samurai. Once you have entered a keyword in Market Samurai, you can do keyword research, check the SEO competition, showing you domain age, page rank, backlinks, In URL, In Theme etc. Then for the same keyword it can tell you what domains is available. If you want to monetize the site, just hit the monetize button and it shows you what products is available in Amazon Clickbank, Ebay etc. Want to find content on your keyword, hit the content button and get articles from a host of directories.

    MNF basically have the same features but I have not used them. There is a feature in MNF that I like. Narrow dig. Click on a keyword, narrow dig and it will return reults regarding that particular keyword.

    Hope this helps.

    If you're going for a one off software (which I'd strongly suggest) , instead of a monthly subscription program like Raven Tools (the best seo tool, I've ever used but $100 + per month) then nothing comes close to market samurai.

    Put it like this...I even know online marketing agencies who use it!

    Why does Market Samurai rock?
    1. The out the box functionality
    2. plus the fact that it pulls much of its data from the Majestic SEO API
    3. The keyword ranking tool is very insightful
    4. Love how the keyword research function ties into ur Google account and makes it so easy to sort keywords by search volume, competition, and other factors
    5. Even their non-seo modules, like the content finder, make sense
    6. Especially like how they're always doing new updates!

    The only thing they lack is a ppc module...But outside of that all their pluses, when combined, make Market Samurai the undisputed champ
    of one off SEO tools-in my book!

      Hey Ben. How much is Market Samurai? Is it a one time fee?

      Is there a discount coupon code?

      Can I buy it through clickbank?

      Thanks

      I also heard that traffic travis and micro niche finder from Brad Callen is good.

      Is there instructions on how to use Market Samurai for beginners.

      I am going to watch a video later on tonight about keyword research for beginners. Also after you find this great keywords, how do you actually use it to rank number one in google if you already have a site.

      Do you think I can just buy an edu package that I just submit my url and the keyword to rank fast on google top 5 pages?

      Sorry rookie talking out of his lost mind, lol. I am sure I will look back one day and see how silly I sound.

      Thank you for your help.

    You can just use the free Google keyword tool. I've never used paid software. Secondly, the search engines are constantly updating their algorithms. SEO isn't just a one-time thing. It's a process.

    I see that others have already mentioned the free Google keyword research tool but nobody shared a link to it so here it is:

    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal

    This is the best free keyword research tool around and is all you need to get a good idea of how popular the keyword and keyword phrases are that you are interested in ranking for.

    It also shows the general competition level of the keyword or keyword phrases you enter which gives you an idea of how many other marketers have already created content targeting those keywords and how hard/easy it will be to get your content to show up on the first page of Google and other search engines.

    Ok, So I'll drop my two cents in here.

    Although Ive used almost all of the tools listed above.

    I have seen tremendous results using Google and my own head With My Hidden Gem Keyword Shinobi

    It will scrape Go-Ya-Bi-& Ao el.
    Why am I shortening the words? Because I don't want the search engines getting news of this.

    I Stick with a TOP TWENTY FACTOR (Stop Listen & Learn)
    First I go to Go's keyword scraper, then edit my list I'm building using the info below.
    Use:
    8 Very low searched keywords, short and long tail split.
    6 Medium searched keywords, Short and long tail split.
    6 Hard searched keywords, again short & long tail split.

    Then I put those keywords into Keyword Shinobi & let it do it's job
    When it's finished I have multiple long and short keywords that are scraped from the top four search engines, All Done at once.

    My results:
    I have just pulled all the best long and short keywords available to the current day.Which I know my competitors aren't doing!

    Now I build my content around the keywords & make it search engine friendly and Human friendly.

    It might take me a little more time.
    But $3k a month for a set it and forget for 5 months is totally worth it.
    That's only with one site

    Hope this helps you wanna be guru's.

    In my own case I use scientific approach for my keyword research also for my clients. I leave24hours apart to run my keyword research software, each session with a private proxy. What I then do is to compare the result of the software. Once I found that two of the software gave me the same result as (GKWT) for my targeted keyword(s) that is the keyword I use.

    My Three Keyword Tools are:

    Market samurai
    Traffic travis(This to unmask who my top 10 competitors are)
    Stealth Keyword Research Tool

    Google Adwords is great for basic keyword research but there are more specialize tools that make it easier to find additional keywords that you can consider. These include Keyword Map and Quintura.

    Market Samurai is useful too, but it integrates Adwords so it doesn't offer any unique data that I recall. I haven't used it for a while so can't say for sure. It makes it more efficient though.
