Hi Guys
I am trying to do keyword research but I have doubt with all these tools out there in the market. I mean, any tool can just extract data from any third party tool and pull up some data. How can you know it's accurate?

Also I am looking to check the competition for each keyword. So what are your opinion on which has the best keyword research tool and competition so I can see which are the best keywords to realistically rank for?

    Any tool that will allow you to see competitor backlinks is better than not being able to see them so I'm not sure that "trust" plays any role whatsoever in spying on the competition.

    We prefer SEMrush but it's not free. If you want a free tool, the best one I know if is SEO Review Tools Free Backlink Checker.

    No tool can accurately predict how hard a phrase will be to rank for (although they all claim to do it well). You have to use your brain along with what the tools show you in terms of backlinks to domains on page one and what the sites are that are on page one. If they are all major websites, you stand very little chance of beating them (at least for that exact keyword phrase). If there are a few obscure sites and they don't have great backlink profiles, you stand a decent chance of being able to overtake them. Don't worry about anything but the sites that are on page one for any given search query. The "also-rans" don't matter and neither does the number of sites competing for a phrase.

    First of all, there are two types of tools available in the market: -

    1. Google Keyword Planner - This is a free tool in which you can research keywords for free.

    2. ahref and semrush - both of these are premium, you can research both tasks in ahref and semrush, and you can also check who is the competitor.

    Tools are never accurate, they are just made to change the problem in solution. These tools provide you only ideas in which you have to choose what is right or what is wrong.

    You can do keyword research on these tools but you have to make the accurate keyword for your yourself. And if you want to find out who are the competitors of your website then ahref and semrush are best tools to find competiton.

    I think that Google tool at first, then something like KWfinder.com, then I would say something like Wordtracker.net in the past and overall all current big databases of searched keywords. You know it changes very very often. Please use it wisely.

    According to me, ubersuggest is trending now. And, the evergreen keyword tool is Google keyword planner. But If you ask me which tool I use then my strategy are different.

    I always optimize websites for all the keywords, no matter how many searches a keyword getting 50 or 50K, for business and leads every keyword is important.

    So I always search manually for a keyword and Google auto result and suggestions give me 10 - 15 keyword suggestion that the user performs on Google. So note down those keywords and start optimizing.

    SEMRUSH is not a typical keyword research tool; it offers so much more than just researching keywords.

    Unlike other tools where you need to add seed keywords to start your research, here you just need to add your URL (or your competitor's URL) and it will show you all of the keywords that are ranking for that site.

    This makes it easier for you to find short-tail and long-tail keywords that you can target and beat out your competition.

    First of all none of the keyword research tools will show you the exact searches
    There are some free tools that are doing pretty well
    1.keywords everywhere
    2.ubersuggest
    Keywords everywhere will show you the number of searches, they may not be exact, but the keywords suggestions that they provide at the sidebar of the serp will give you some awesome keywords that you weren't aware of.

    There is never an exact answer, all estimations.

    I use Ubersuggest because it is free, but we also have a Moz account at work and I am honestly in love with it. I am more general marketing & writing than SEO, but my SEO collegues rave about Moz too.

    Also when doing writing research I like Answer the Public as it gives you the questions that people are actually searching for!

    Most searches are informational after all!

    Very important perspective and question. All I know is that Bing, for a campaign I was doing, brought my sign-ups but those sign up where trash. So, from my experience, I would advise using Bing's keyword search tool.

    Stay cool and successful...

    There are a lot of good tools for SEO, but Semrush and Ahrefs are the best one, as I think.
    Ahrefs has so good function as Keywords Explorer, it will give you a lot of information on each keyword.
    What about SEMrush, it will show you keywords that your competition already ranks for.

    Here is the solution to your question. Use Google keyword planner for selecting new keywords and for keyword ideas. Use Semrush for competitor analysis it will provide more information about your competitors.

    Yes, you are right, there are several tools in the market, but all these tools give you data. Deciphering that data into meaningful information is what's that keeps you in the top position of SERP. I would say for keywords research use "Google Keyword Planner," and for competition analysis, you can trust "RankWatch/webceo/seowatchdog"

    There's tons of tools out there.

    As many as there are fish in the sea.

    Some of them look great. But taste awful.

    While others seem bare, and dull, but...

    ... THEY'LL GIVE YOU A TASTE THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME!

    Anyway, the majority of keyword tools out there pull from Google Keyword Planner.

    Good idea?

    Maybe.

    Maybe not.

    Google Keyword Planner is good for reference. But lot's of their data is super inaccurate. And they have a tendency to "hide" stuff from people trying to do keyword research for SEO.

    The ideal option?

    Google Suggest.

    And any keyword tool that gives you data (pulls back keywords) from the Google Suggest database.

    What so good about that, you ask?

    Keywords from Google Suggest are timely (they're search phrases that people are looking for RIGHT NOW), they hold nothing back (the purpose is to list keywords from most searched to least searched to convenience searchers), and...

    ... you get a TON of keyword phrases that Google Keyword Planner will never give you!

    Forget about the numbers for a while.

    Most of those are taken from the Keyword Planner.

    And a lot of times, they're super inaccurate.

    Try to target Google Suggest based keyword phrases.

    And target lots of long tail ones all at the same time.

    So you can rank for tons of stuff. That no one else is targeting. Because they're all using the same keyword tool.

    And you'll get more traffic with a lot less effort...
