2021’s Best SEO Keyword Research Tools

Since there are over 30.2 million small businesses in the US, you’re going to want to make yours stand out.

The best way to do this is to have a good webpage that appears high up in search engines. Doing this ensures that people will click on your page over those of competitors. In order to make this happen, though, you’re going to need a good SEO package with well-done SEO keyword research.

Read on to learn some of the tools that make ranking in Google possible with keywords!

Wordtracker Scout

There are a huge number of lessons that you can learn from your business competitors. One of the most important lessons is the keywords that people search in order to find goods and services similar to yours.

You may find yourself looking through the blogs of your biggest competitors and blindly digging for the keywords that they use (and rank with) most frequently. However, this is a time-consuming and inefficient way to figure out the keywords that will best boost your organic traffic. Wordtracker Scout is a free Chrome extension that will save you time and get you a more accurate answer as to what these keywords are.

Once you’ve got the extension, all you need to do is go to a competitor’s site and hit ‘W.’ The keywords that they use most frequently will pop up as an easy-to-read graphic!

Use this in addition to the more classically designed Google AdWords if you want a well-rounded yet free keyword-searching experience.


Once your business has made a bit of money and you feel comfortable investing in better SEO tools, there are other keyword trackers that you can pay to use. One of the most common tools is Ahrefs, a renowned site for figuring out keywords that best boost traffic (as well as helping you find good backlinks, but that’s a topic for another post.)

You can get free Ahrefs as well! You will have fewer functions, but it works in a pinch.

Anyway, on Ahrefs, all you’ll need to do is hit the ‘Organic Keywords’ link on the left side of the page. You’ll then be able to see the keywords that rank on the website you’ve entered into Ahrefs. The site will tell you how highly they rank as well as the volume of searches that the keyword generates as clicks to your page. It will also tell you the difficulty level of the keyword (how hard it will be to rank using it.)

An SEO professional that you hire will check the keywords and incorporate those that have the highest volume into your blog post, so you can relax and know that you’re in good hands.


One of the most popular alternatives to Ahrefs is called SEMrush. It performs many of the same functions as Ahrefs and is also a program that you need to make a paid account to use if you want access to all features. It runs SEO audits of your blog and looks for backlink opportunities. This is all in addition to generating the keywords that your blog needs in order to flourish.

SEMrush has fewer plans to choose from than Ahrefs does, but it also has a huge amount of add-ons that make it worthwhile. Its Writing Assistant and Social Media Helper, among other things, make it great.
