Choose the right keywords with our research tools

Ever since Google announced the impending demise of the AdWords Keyword Tool and their preference for its new avatar – the Keyword Planner, yet another hot discussion has sprung up in the SEO community. This time, svào adherents of the free-for-all ideology are riled at Google’s decision to make the Keyword Planner accessible only lớn marketers who’ve sầu explicitly signed up khổng lồ Google’s AdWords (which is one step more than having a Gmail account), taking it closer to being a paid tool in future! I don’t see this as a hindrance, because most other từ khóa (or other) tools require you to create an trương mục and sign in before you can use them, even if they’re miễn phí. But if Google does it, we have reason khổng lồ pounce on them, don’t we?

One possible problem is that although the Keyword Planner has some cool new features (including integration of the Google Traffic Estimator, which will be retired too), as of this writing, the indispensable Exact Match and Phrase Match features are nowhere lớn be found! Whole books will become useless without these, so I hope Google will eventually port them khổng lồ the Keyword Planner. Nor do you see the “Include specific content” option, which is a life-saver for the adult industry, which spends the most on Google PPC.

There, now. We’ve given you an overview of twenty-five cool từ khoá tools. Of course each of these has its own strengths và caveats, & at least for now, none can match the effectiveness of Google’s Keyword Tool, particularly in language, location, or device-specific results.
