Keyword Research Tools

Here are the best tools for keyword research. 

SEMRush

SEMRush is an awesome website research tool. You can check search engine or PPC stats on any website, see your rankings, or your competitors rankings. I love using it for keyword jacking. Here are 2 ways you can use this tool in just a few min:

1. Easy Wins Method: Put in your website URL. Under Organic Research on the left, click positions. See what you’re ranking for on page 2, re-optimize your pages or add links (internal or external) to boost your rank.

2. Keyword Jacking Method: Get your competitors domains and run a keyword report on them. Sort the report by kw volume, jack their keywords and either add them to your existing pages or build out new pages. BOOM.

Google Pagespeed Insights

See how fast your website loads and how you can improve it.

PageSpeed Insights measures the performance of a page for mobile and desktop devices. It fetches the url twice, once with a mobile user-agent, and once with a desktop user-agent.

PageSpeed Insights checks to see if a page has applied common performance best practices and provides a score, which ranges from 0 to 100 points, and falls into one of the following three categories:

  • Good: The page applies most performance best practices and should deliver a good user experience.
  • Needs work: The page is missing some common performance optimizations that may result in a slow user experience. Please investigate the recommendations below.
  • Poor: The page is not optimized and is likely to deliver a slow user experience. Please prioritize and apply the recommendations below.

[Open Tool]​

Google Mobile Friendly Test

See if Google considers your website mobile friendly.

The Mobile-Friendly test tool is easy to use; simply type in the full URL of the web page that you want to test. Any redirects implemented by the page will be followed by the test. The test typically takes less than a minute to run.

Test results include a screenshot of how the page looks to Google on a mobile device, as well as a list of any mobile usability problems that it finds.

Mobile usability problems are issues that can affect a user that visits the page on a mobile (small screen) device, including small font sizes (which are hard to read on a small screen) and use of Flash (which isn't supported by most mobile devices).

Small SEO Tool - Plagiarism Checker

The article you entered is scanned carefully, and so is the world wide web. It’s very likely you’ll see some red in your results as common phrases may trigger red flags.​

If there are complete sentences that aren’t original, this tool will identify the original source of any unoriginal or plagiarized content that was copied from the internet.​

​[Open Tool]

Small SEO Tool - ​Keyword Rank Checker

This Keyword Rank Checker tool will scan through search engine results for the keyword/phrase you entered to determine website ranking or keyword ranking.

As the keyword rank checker runs the test, it’s good to see green results immediately. That means your website was found on the first page for results by search engine for that keyword.

Even if keyword position checker doesn’t show you a position in the top 3, a front page position is good news. However, if your website isn’t showing in the top ten pages then you have a problem.

Either you haven’t optimized for that keyword, or you haven’t followed quality guidelines and your website may be penalized.​

[Open Tool]​

​Small SEO Tool - Keyword Density Checker

Using this keyword density tool doesn’t help fix your mistakes, but it does identify your mistakes so you can make the appropriate corrections.

What’s unique about this keyword density tool is that you can enter a URL or paste an article, choose the number of keyword results to display, and how many words per phrase (up to 3 words).

Backlink Analysis Tools

You can check the backlinks of any site with these tools. I use them for all of the following:

1. Overview of what’s going on with a site (any anomalies etc)

2. Checking for over-optimization

3. Checking competitors to see if they have any good links or to replicate their links

4. Doing general research on domains

That all being said, these 3 tools do about the same thing but each one has strengths & weaknesses. Here’s what I think about all:

Open Site Explorer

Most commonly used statistics for judging website power or strength, however DA & PA metrics scale with spam so you really need to look at the actual backlinks too.

Majestic​

Best for determining websites trust / strength.
