“STILL my TOP PICK in the keyword research tools category”
Wordtracker is undoubtedly my TOP PICK in the keyword research tools category, and it offers a FREE trial version.
Danny Sullivan of Search Engine Watch said this about Wordtracker:
“If you are serious about search engine optimization, then WordtrackerWordtracker is an essential investment, a must have resource for any search engine marketing professional. It combines both a respectable search term database with tools that make mining the information easy.”
How does Wordtracker work?
You simply enter your keyword or keyword phrase, and Wordtracker will generate a list of related keywords, displayed on the left-hand side of their interface.
Better yet, that list includes related keyword phrases and combinations, some of which you may never have considerred!
Click on one of the phrases in the left column and another list of keywords related to THAT keyword magically appears on the right-hand column showing you the number of times that word or phrase was searched for in the previous 60 days.
It also tells you how many of your competitors use those keywords by scouring each major search engine, directory and PPC (pay-per-cick) search engine for results.
From there you have the option to click on individual keywords in the right-hand column to ‘dig' for even more related keywords and phrases.
Using the paid version, you can add up to 5000 selected keywords to your ‘basket' which can be emailed to you.
Although the free version is limited in scope and use, I suggest you give it a whirl.
You may purchase Wordtracker's service by the day, week, month or year. Many professional Internet and affiliate marketers buy short subscriptions of Wordtracker for a day or a week, and concentrate their keyword research during that time.
As of 2007, Wordtracker's subscrition rates are as follows:
- 1 Year £149.00 / $299.00
- 1 Month £29.00 / $59.00
- 1 Week £15.00 / $30.00
Their service comes with a full 30-DAY money back guarantee.
No other tool surpasses Wordtracker in terms of accuracy of results and scope of service. I HIGHLY recommend that you sign up for the FREE trial at very least!
