Is the Google Keyword Planner the best tool to find the keywords of my competitor's websites? When exploring new niches I want to know what keywords the competing sites are ranking for.

    Honestly, stealing keywords is illegal. LOL just kidding Anyhow, go to their website, and then on the browser go to tools, view source, and look at the Meta tags. That should help. OR you can look at this.

    If you consider paid tools than SEMRush is the best option for you. It will show your competitors keywords along with their current ranking position.

      Yes it is great. It seems that for the local sites I am building the free version may be sufficient for a while. Thanks.

    Just type your keyword in search engine and seed the related ads on Google, bing. therefore those ads titles are very competitive and really work well for you.

      That make a lot of sense because if adds are showing then there is traffic for that keyword phrase.

      Yeah, agreed with you. I also used the same technique for getting long tail keywords. You can also use ubbersuggest for getting long tail keywords idea. For searching competitors keyword SEM rush is the best option.

    Mix it up. Gather data from the keywords used by your top competitors, and search for top keywords on Google Ads. Make a list and run them at Google keyword tool for more long tail keyword suggestions. Also, Google Keyword Tool/planner is "OK" because its free but if you want more tailored searches, I suggest you go buy a plan at SEMRUSH or SEOmoz

    The page source of a site would reveal the meta tags and give you an idea about the keywords.

    this is a longshot since almost everybody removed it but...

    try looking at a competitors' page source code (CTRL+U) and look for META Keywords tag.

    Couple of years ago it was a go-to move to get your site ranked well, but over the last 3-4 years it lost all of its value and it's counterproductive

    As I said, 90% of webmasters removed it, but maybe you get lucky and you find couple of keywords your competitors are targeting

    Hey,

    I would recommend Free SEO Software | The Best SEO Management Tool | Traffic Travis .

    Its a free software that you can download that allows you to spy on your competitors keywords. It also shows you what you need to do to outrank them as far as backlinks, keywords, etc.

    Hope this is helpful!

    As most people know; we could put our own or a competitors URL into the old Google Keywprd Tool to discover all the keywords that led to that website; Does anybody know any other software that does the same?

      Thanks for those replies. My problem remains because, the importance of the source keyword meta tag has diminished so far that it is hardly used at all by modern webmasters. So, does any body know of a software that we could put our own or a competitors URL into to discover all the keywords that led to that website.

    Hi
    You can get through tools available also you can search manually. Once you enter the keywords in search engine, you find the websites listed in the same name, so we can choose them as competitors.

  • If you want to know about competitor keywords then go to source code info to the competitor website. and you will get the keywords.
