(Note: Keywords everywhere is a paid tool now)
Keywords Everywhere are undisputedly one of the best tools for SEO practitioners, bloggers, and content creators. Unlike UberSuggest, it is an add-on SEO tool for Chrome and Firefox that shows the volume of search, CPC and competition for a particular keyword. So, you can call this add on/ extension a free SEO tool or a free keyword research tool as well.
CPC is the abbreviated form of Cost Per Click which means the amount of money that you need to spend on a particular keyword if you want it as an Ad on Google. It also conversely means the amount of money you will get per click on a particular Ad on your blog/website related to that keyword if you have monetized your blog/ website with Adsense. Competition is the estimated level of difficulty that you need to face in order to rank a particular content on Google.
It is tough to manually find the right keywords and it takes a lot of time for keyword research. Sometimes you might have to go through trial and error on which keyword works for you and which doesn’t. In order to solve your keyword research problem, Keywords Everywhere can be a helpful tool.
It suggests you whether to work on a particular keyword or skip to another one. Likewise, it gives you more keyword ideas that you can integrate into your blog or create a new article upon those idea keywords.
In order to understand it better, see the screenshot below:
In the above screenshot, you can see that I just searched ‘website traffic’ on Google and got the metrics. The search volume for that keyword is 140,000 per month which is very high. The CPC is $3.47 which is also profitable. But, see the competition level. It is 0.74. Now that is where you should focus on.
Ideally, a keyword that has a competition of less than 0.30 is easier to work with. However, it might be different in your case because you might have already a blog that is ranking high in search engines and you might know more about SEO and traffic generation. But for a beginner blogger or content creator, it is much difficult to rank an article on those keywords which have a competition of more than 0.3.
If you want my opinion, then I suggest you skip that level of competition keyword and work on a new one.
See another screenshot below for more details.
This time, I took another keyword ‘Samsung smart switch’. See the metrics that showed up. The search volume is 673,000 per month. Insane search volume, isn’t it? Now imagine if you can anyway drive in a one-sixth volume of traffic towards your blog for that keyword. It is too easy to generate 100K traffic for that keyword because the level of competition is low (only 0.09).
The CPC is also decent and you can earn some revenue from Google Adsense. Now think if you can create 20 articles on such types of low competition keywords. You will be getting at least a million traffic monthly on your blog. If you are lucky enough, sometimes you will even find those keywords which have ZERO competition. Yeah, absolutely no competition. Create an article now and rank a few days later.
Another feature of Keywords Everywhere is that it suggests you related keywords for your main keyword. See the screenshot below.
For the main keyword “Samsung smart switch”, I got 8 more related keywords with their respective search volume, CPC and Level of competition. So, what can I do with these related keywords? I can create an article for each of these keywords, or I can integrate these keywords into an article with the main keyword “Samsung smart switch” in such a way that it gives a meaningful sense.
You can also see that the level of competition for all of those keywords is low. So, I can surely rank an article within some days if I am able to use all these keywords in an integrated way.
Another good feature of Keywords Everywhere is that you can save all those related keywords in a CSV file for future reference. You can always open such a file on MS-Excel.
With the option of ‘Export to CSV’, it is easier to bulk export all the keyword ideas into a CSV file.
You can even start some or all keywords for the future. In case you have not come up with an idea of creating a blog post or article or video content on a particular keyword, but those keywords are low competitive, then you can always star those keywords and refer them later when you come up with an idea.
In the screenshot above, you can see that the keyword “Smart meaning” has a good monthly search and zero competition. How can I let go of such a keyword? So, I have started it so that I can save it for the future. You can always access those saved keywords through “Keywords Everywhere >> My Keywords”.
Another thing you can do as a blogger using Keywords Everywhere is that you can spy on your competitors’ page. In the screenshot above, you can see the option “Analyze Page” just below the option ‘My Keywords’.
So, on any of your competitors’ pages, you can open up the KE extension and select the ‘Analyze page’ option. That will give you a full report on the page that you want to research, like; keywords that your competitor is using, the density of the keywords, the sections of the page where those keywords are found, number of occurrences of those keywords in the particular page, the monthly search volume of those keywords, Global CPC and Global competition, etc.
So, by doing all this research, you will know some reasons for how your competitor is ranking on the top 10 results of the search page. That will help you to do on-page SEO for your own article. Now, with the same strategy as your competitor, you can create another unique comprehensive article on your blog and rank higher than them.
Another reason why you should be using this SEO tool is that it is free. Yeah, you need to pay nothing for using this tool/ add-on. You can access some of the features and options with zero cost. For unlocking all the features, you need to purchase the premium plan.
That was all about the review and features of Keywords Everywhere tool. Now, here are the details on how you can use this SEO tool.
How to Use Keywords Everywhere Extension Tool
Firstly, head over to the Keywords Everywhere extension page in the chrome store and click ‘Add to Chrome’. If you are using the Firefox browser, then your Firefox version is here.
Then, Click ‘Add Extension’. You will now be redirected to another page where you need to insert an email address to receive an API (Application Programming Interface) key. Without the API key, your extension will be functionless and without email id, you will not get your API key. So, insert your valid email address and select the ‘Email me API key’.
Now, navigate to your email inbox and find the email to access your API key. Copy the key and paste it into your settings and click ‘validate’. After that, select your country and currency preferences. I have set it to global.
Furthermore, you need to enable the metrics you need and disable those which you don’t need. I have enabled all metrics. Likewise, configure the range of your search volume, CPC and competition to highlight it in the search results.
Similarly, check all the websites and platforms from where you want to get the metrics.
