What is the Best SEO Keyword Tool?

An ideal SEO keyword tool should tell you how your customers interact with your site, and should tell you more than just which keywords to optimize for. Good SEO keyword tools should tell you how to organize keywords, and what to do with your newly found keywords to get the most out of your search marketing efforts.

WordStream offers a robust suite of SEO keyword research tools to help you:

  • Find the keywords that people are using to search for offerings like yours
  • Optimize web pages with keyword-rich text
  • Structure your content into a logical hierarchy
  • Understand which pages you should be authoring next

These are some of the most helpful steps you can take in creating a truly successful search engine marketing campaign, and WordStream’s SEO tools can help.

The WordStream Difference: Better SEO Keywords, Every Day

If you’re just getting started with keyword research for SEO, you’ll probably want to begin by using a free keyword suggestion tool on the web. WordStream’s Free Keyword Tool is a great place to start: We index over a trillion unique search queries, provide more accurate results faster, and return more long-tail keywords than most paid SEO keyword tools.

If you want to dig a little deeper with your keyword research, we offer several free resources to help you get more out of your keyword lists. These include articles on: 

  • Keyword niches – Learn how to use keyword niches to find the most valuable segments for your keywords. 
  • Keyword grouping – Already have a list of keywords? Learn how to use effective keyword grouping to sort them into manageable clusters. 
  • Negative keywords: Leveraging negative keywords gives you tighter control over budget, so your PPC campaigns can achieve higher ROI.

You can use these online SEO tools for free. But SEO keyword research is only truly valuable insofar as it gives you competitive edge and the power to find and act on keywords whenever you need them.

WordStream’s Keyword Research Suite goes beyond free tools to provide an actionable, private database of exclusive SEO keyword opportunities that your competitors can’t access.
