What is the best keyword tool for SEO research? Keywords Everywhere is the best free keyword tool for SEO research because it allows you to search any keyword on Google.com (on Chrome or Firefox), just like you normally would, but also be presented with the search volume and cost per click of that keyword. According to Keywords Everywhere, their google chrome plugin or Firefox plugin provides “Keyword search volume for 15+ websites like Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Moz, Majestic, YouTube, Amazon & more“. *Update – Keywords Everywhere charges to find search volume now. Keywords Nowhere is an alternative to Keywords Everywhere. The developer wanted to allow users to continue using fuctionality like Keywords Everywhere but for free. The Developer says, “Know the search volume and CPC of any keyword in USA/UK, for Free (we will always be free).“
The keyword data provided by Keywords Everywhere is based on Google Keyword Planner + Clickstream data but works instantly without having to use the actual Keyword Planner, which in my experience; loads slowly, doesn’t always work, and takes valuable minutes away from your day to navigate too.
With Keywords Everywhere you will start seeing click volumes and cost per click information on Google.com instantly after entering a keyword and clicking the search button. As you can see, the plugin automatically places the search volume and cost per click information right there under the search bar.
However, you will actually need to make a change in your settings to force this to happen.
- Simply click on the K icon in the top right area of your Google chrome menu
- Click on settings.
- Scroll down to the bottom under Miscellaneous Settings -> Location of metric -> Click the dropdown menu and then select “Under Search Box”
Here is a screenshot of my settings just in case you’re not sure your plugin is set up correctly.
I’ve actually compared Google’s Keyword Planner data to Keywords Everywhere’s data and the 2 are an exact match. This tool will save you so much time with keyword research. And not only that, but you also get the “searches related to” section, which provides you with 8 additional keyword results to choose from. Click on one of those and it’s like your starting all over again with a new set of keywords.
Sometimes I repeat this process over 20 times as the first keywords I run into aren’t always the highest searches. Just keep searching a new keyword and then scrolling to the bottom to see if you find better results. I would say the only downfall is that Use Excel or Google Sheets to keep track of the keywords you find.
