Top 10 best tools for bloggers. The Google Keyword Planner is now, in 2019, past tense for many marketers. The limitations, irritations, and display of incorrect or incomplete information are no longer possible.
In the meantime, fortunately, there are tools that are incredibly good and useful in displaying keywords, content ideas, and volumes.
Because I know for sure that you are also done with the Keyword Planner, and because you definitely want to know which tools are available, I have 10 free and paid tools here that are better than Google Keyword Planner order).
- Keyword tool.io
- Answer the Public
- Google Trends
- Keyword Shitter
Ubersuggest is a completely free keyword analysis tool that is one of the few available in many languages and is from Neil Patel. It is a very nice program with a clear layout.
You receive hundreds of suggestions and related search terms for each search. Including the competitors, the chance that you will end up in the top 20 and much more. If you start with SEO or keyword retrieval then Ubersuggest is one of the best tools that you can start with Ubersuggest tool
Keywordtool.io [Free & Paid]
Keywordtool.io claims on its website that it is the best alternative to the Google Keyword planner and all other keyword analysis tools.
It is a very useful tool that can also tell you volumes on YouTube, Bing, Amazon, Ebay, Play Store, Instagram and Twitter. Unfortunately, the free version is not enough and you will have to pay at least $ 69 dollars a month to use the full potential.
By the way, that is a lot of money for just a keyword analysis tool.
The big advantage of Keywordtool.io is that you can enter negative keywords and filter them conveniently.
Ahrefs is by far the best tool on earth when it comes to link building, but don’t underestimate the Keyword Explorer! Ahrefs provides all the information you need. Think of the level of difficulty, the volume, suggestions, SERPs, questions, keywords you rank on and related search terms. In addition, you can not only find out the volumes within Google, but also within YouTube, Amazon, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, Baidu, Daum, Naver and Seznam.
If you mainly focus on link building, then I would definitely go for Ahrefs! Because the combination of link building + the Keyword Explorer makes it an ideal replacement for the Google Keyword Planner.
The prices for Ahrefs start at $ 82 per month if you pay per year.
Answer The Public [Free & Paid]
Answer The Public was the content tool that went viral in 2018. Logical too, when you see what the tool can do and how many content ideas you get. Answer The Public is completely free to use, but do you want to get more out of it and, for example, select by region? Then you need a paid account of $ 99 a month.
As good as Answer The Public is in retrieving other keywords and content ideas, so bad is the tool in retrieving volumes. Answer The Public does not do this. You always use this tool with it and not as a complete replacement for the Google Keyword Planner.
Just like Semrush and Ahrefs, MOZ is much more than just a keyword analysis tool. You can actually extract all the SEO information that you need to score better. From the points of improvement of your own website to information about your competitors.
The advantage of MOZ is that the software program is really incredibly clear and very user-friendly. You will also receive all the information you need: Keyword Difficulty, organic CTR, keyword suggestions and a SERP analysis.
The keyword analysis tool of MOZ has the same name as that of Ahrefs: Keyword Explorer and can be used from as little as $ 79 per month if you pay per year.
Semrush has already been mentioned in this article and is similar to MOZ. Not only is Semrush’s keyword analysis tool the same as MOZ, but actually the entire program itself.
You can purchase Semrush for as little as $ 83 a month (if you pay annually) and see you as a true all-in-one SEO tool. Semrush has chosen the name “Keyword Research” for its keyword tool and provides information about organic traffic, paid traffic, CPC distribution, trend, long tail keywords, related keywords and the SERPS.
Both MOZ and Semrush are perfect to use as a replacement for the Google Keyword Tool.
Google Trends [Free]
To get straight to the point: Google Trends is not an alternative to Google’s keyword planner, but is more a supplement to your keyword analysis.
With Google Trends you can see for free which words are hot in which countries. This way you can see exactly how often a word is searched, in which country and in which region and you can easily find related searches.
Keyword Shitter [Free]
The tool is as useful as the name! Like Google Trends, Keyword Shitter is a good addition and not a complete replacement. Keyword Shitter is completely free to use and provides you with as many related keywords as possible.
All you have to do is throw those related keywords into an alternative you choose for the Google Keyword Planner and determine which keywords are interesting.
Mergewords is ideal for discovering local SEO opportunities. Unfortunately, you will not see any volumes and you must, therefore, combine this tool with, for example, KW Finder or Ubersuggest.
The name actually explains it, but with Merge words, you can combine all your words for free. Very useful if, for example, you want to know the volume of “Plumber + all Gelderland cities”. You don’t have to type a list manually, because Merge words will create it automatically for you.
You only have to check those combined terms for volume and competition.
KWFinder [Free & Paid]
I wanted to close this post with a blast! My favorite keyword analysis tool, and therefore alternative to the Google Keyword Planner, is KWFinder. I am so pleased with this tool that I will write a full KWfinder review about it.
KWFinder is completely free to use, but for a meager $ 26 per month you can use all the options of the tool and you also get access to four other useful SEO programs.
The advantage of KWFinder is that you really get all the information you need. Think of keywords, the trend, expected CPC, volume, keyword difficulty, SERPs, related keywords, questions with the keyword incorporated and an “autocomplete” function.
In addition, KWFinder is by far the most user-friendly, fast and never has problems. KWFinder is THE alternative to the Google Keyword Planner!
