Most of you now know that Google has taken away the Google AdWords Keyword Tool and replaced it with the Keyword Planner which is a combination of the old keyword tool and the traffic estimator. The combination helps by making the process of researching keywords even faster.
Here is a list of my favorite keyword tools in the digital marketing world.
1. Ubersuggest: This is a very nice tool to help you generate some new long tailed keywords. Ubersuggest allows you to choose a language and what mediums to look at, like web, images, or video. It creates a nice and neat list of keywords in alphabetical order to make all of your searching easy.
2. Google Keyword Planner: This is a pretty obvious choice for any list of best keyword tools since it is essential for anyone planning on working in the digital marketing world. Google recently took the keyword tool and combined other pieces and created the keyword planner. It is an awesome tool that will give you all sorts of data like: local monthly searches, the competition level, and the suggested bid. These stats might not represent the actual data exactly, but at least you get a rough idea of what is ahead. If you have an AdWords account it is easy to access this tool, just go into the tab labeled "Tools and Analysis" and click the option "Keyword Planner".
3. Wordstream Keyword Tool: Wordstream offers a handful of tools to help in your digital marketing process. The keyword tool can help you come up with some new keywords and help you learn about the frequency of each of these keywords. This tool also allows you to create a niche group of related keywords, and will give you further suggestions.
Using all of these tools will help you create a very large database of keywords for your advertising campaign ensuring that you do not miss any areas that your ads should be appearing.
