Are you still struggling to find tools that help you do all the keyword research for your website? If yes, you are at the right place. Today in this guide I’ll introduce some great keyword research tools which can help you boost your rankings on Google real quick.
Keyword Research is a big topic in itself. It includes a lot of other things like using proper LSI Keywords, finding low competition keywords, not stuffing keywords in your article and a lot more but that we can discuss that some other day.
So let’s get started.
Top 5 Keyword Research Tools for Your Website.
Note: This guide will include both free/paid tools.
# UberSuggest [FREE]
You probably must have heard this name before. If not, read below and you’ll know the power of this tool.
This is an FREE Keyword Research tool which gives you precise data about the search volume for a specific keyword.
Ubersuggest is one of the famous keyword research tools out there on the market right now. The best part about this free tool is you can expand each keyword to research in depth.
Moreover, there is a Google Trends feature available in the tool itself which lets you know which keyword is currently trending and growing.
You can download the list of keywords and refer them later. It’s a handy feature by the way. Watch the video how to use UberSuggest.

# KWFinder [Paid]
If you are searching for a core Keyword Research tool than KWFinder is the answer to your question.
It’s as simple as to enter your keyword in the search term and see the magic. In a few seconds, you’ll see the keywords’ search volume, CPC, and its competition.
Competition is something in which KWFinder beats many other tools out there in the market. You can get a number out of 100 according to the keyword difficulty.
It comes in different color codes. The light green one says that the keyword is easy to rank whereas the orange color code keywords are moderate to difficult to rank and finally the red keywords are a way to difficult to rank for if you are just starting out.
I would recommend target for the green keyword with Keyword Difficulty of around 25-34.

# KeywordTool.io [Freemium]
This tool is an alternative to Ubersuggest. The tool fetches data from Youtube, Bing, Amazon, eBay, and App store and gives it to you.
If you’re in search of some good low competition keywords then you should definitely visit Keywordtool.io because you’ll fall in love with the detailed results they give for FREE.
One catch here is you won’t be able to see the search volume and the competition of the keyword for that you need to go with the paid version of this tool. But as you are just starting out I’d recommend to use the FREE version and upgrade it when you get your hands dirty.
