To me, keyword research is vital in order to be successful when it comes to Internet marketing. If I don’t know which keywords to target, I feel lost. It’s not just Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising, but it’s search engine optimization (SEO), and it’s about finding partners and places to submit guest posts. And probably a lot more…
At the moment I’m testing a paid keyword research tool called Keyword Country. I have just started to test it, so I won’t say anything about it yet, because I don’t know if it’s any good or not.
I am still using 3 free keyword research tools, that I highly recommend. The list is in no particular order (all of them are worth using).
Google Keyword Tool
I have used the Google Keyword Tool for a long time, and it just gets better and better the more I use it. This is by far the keyword tool I have been using the most.
I haven’t been using Keyword Spy for more than a week, but it provides a lot of very interesting information about keywords and especially about competition. I have used it to find my competition, and to discover their keywords and their PPC campaigns. Awesome tool.
Wordtracker Keyword Questions
I have been using the Wordtracker free keyword tool for a while, but the one wordtracker tool I find even more interesting is the keyword questions. When I find the keywords I want to focus on, using either the Google Keyword Tool or Keyword Spy, I always use the Wordtracker Keyword Questions in order to find questions people are searching for.
