Free Keyword Research Tools are always in demand, because many of them do a better job than some expensive tools do! That’s my experience. Keyword research is important because by finding out what people are searching for, you put yourself in a strong position to help them achieve their goals – as well as yours. Of all keywords, a “long tail keyword” (i.e. more specific and longer phrases of searched keywords like “left-handers garden scissors” instead of just “scissors”) is like traffic gold.
Individually, long-tail keywords may bring back a lower number of searches in the search engines, but when a lot of long-tail keywords are aggregated for their traffic potential, it would add up to a lot. Besides it’s easier to rank for those long-tail keywords because of lower competition. To help you plan your website content based on good long-tail keywords, that help searchers find you, and also help you find the traffic you need, we have created this list of 10 best free keyword research tools as part of our Content Tools & Resources guide.
