Keyword Tools

keyword tools






In my opinion keyword research is the single most important part of the article writing/blogging process. If you don't select properly your words may never be seen and you will not be able to generate income from the blog post. Remember, an online article or blog post is a PERMANENT BILLBOARD.

This is an area where you do not want to “go cheap”. Save your money and buy the right tools. They will make you lots of money.

Google External Keyword Tool – I always start my research here to compile a list of keywords with enough traffic to make it worthwhile. This tool is free to use. Create a Google Adwords account (free), log in and you can produce a list of up to 800 keywords versus 100 if you do not log in.

Market Samurai – $127 one time purchase. This is great tool you can install on both a PC or a Mac. Great tool if you are on a budget but it can be slow. Free trial and great video training that is accessible during the free trial

Keyword Canine – $297 per year. Another excellent product from Jonathan Leger (Article Builder, The Best Spinner). Niche discovery tool separated by geography, brainstorming on auto pilot, and in-depth research. Quick and great on finding the latest niches. Good graphics

SeCockpit – the ultimate keyword tool. This is  my keyword tool of choice now because it is much faster and it digs a lot deeper than Market Samurai. It also tells you if any Youtube videos are ranking for each keyword which is great for “sniping”. You can also add all of your URLS for rank tracking. This rank tracking alone is worth the investment.
