Finding proper keywords and niches is the first and I think the most important step for website building, internet marketing and for SEO as well. Since it is so important many developers realize the needs for keyword finder tools that make the process of keyword and niche research faster and more accurate. There are many online services as well as desktop software that can help us with this process.
Here I have collected the top 9 keyword research tools that proved to be the most effective for me to find keywords and I use them every day.
1. Google Keyword Research Tool
I think, this is the most well-known tool and it is free. During the years it has improved a lot and many great features have been added to filter the results. Personally, I use it when I want to find relevant keywords, LSI keywords and to brainstorm keyword ideas, or if I want to know fast the number of searches. In the hand of experts it is a great tool ( and maybe no other keyword finder tools are needed for them), however for beginners it may be a bit hard to use and understand the usage of it.
2. Market Samurai
This is another powerful software with many great features for niche and keyword research that I usually use it for. I like that it offers great options to filter keywords and find the ones that are profitable. Really good tool to find untapped niches. However, for beginners it might be a bit complex, but the developers have made fantastic videos about the usage of it and ones that help to understand the whole process of niche and keyword research.
Plus, we must not forget about the other functions like SEO competition checking, domains checking, rank tracking, functions for finding and publishing content and for monetization. If you are serious about online marketing and SEO, it is must have tool.
3. Stealth Keyword Competition Analyzer
This tool is specially built to tell how competitive the keywords are, which is one of the most important factor. First, you should use the Google’s keyword tool and export the results, then add them to this analyzer. The software by checking many factors tells the level of the competition for each keywords. I like it since it uses some factors that are not used by any other keyword research tools. The only negative thing is that it is a bit slow, but I always let it working in the background.
