Keysearch – Keyword Research Tool with Extras
Keysearch keyword research tool was a bit of a find really – a full featured and very well put together keyword research tool at a very affordable cost.
Why am I enthusing so much about a keyword research tool? Let’s face it, there’s no shortage of them and you can even do it for free using Google’s Keyword Planner so why even bother to pay for one?
There are some very good questions there and here’s the short answer – for some people, probably quite a lot of people, Keyword Planner doesn’t go far enough. Some other paid for tools go further but this one, so far, seems to deliver the widest range of functionality at anywhere near the price it goes out for. Not only that but the presentation of the data is very easy to read and comprehend.
Keysearch gives you the option to take keyword data from a number of different sources – yes of course AdWords Keyword Planner is one of them – but others include Bing Suggest, Amazon Suggest and YouTube Suggest – nice. So if its a ppc campaign you are planning, you’re sorted but you are also sorted if you are planning to work on YouTube, Bing or Amazon and these days those platforms are just as important as Google.
Entering a “seed” keyword and specifying a source will find you both the list of related keywords and the top ten website url’s that are currently ranking for the seed keyword. Any word in the list can be selected and drilled down into to find the ranking difficulty score – this helps you to find words and phrases that are worth trying to rank for, and those best left alone.
Add to the Keysearch mix a useful backlink checker and management facility and you got yourself a nice set of SEO & PPC tools for not much money.
I’ve used lots of keyword research tools and some of them are very good, others not so good, but I don’t recall using one that is so pleasant to use and which produces such useful and comprehensive results as this one. Well done Keysearch.
You can do a free trial, with some limitations, but the Keysearch Starter Plan, at just $17 per month is the one that most people will go for, I imagine.
