Top Alternative Keyword Tools to Google Keyword Planner
You should also examine which keywords your successful competitors are focusing on — your research may uncover valuable keywords you hadn’t even thought to target! To expand your list of existing high-value keywords, I recommend the following tools:
- Keywordtool.io: This long-tail keyword research tool can provide thousands of keyword suggestions from real user queries. I recommend running it on all product categories and sub-category names e.g. shoes, running shoes, and brand names (like “Nike running shoes”).
- Google Correlate: By correlating words and topics, this helpful tool can throw up keyword suggestions, including variants on more popular and commonly used search terms.
- Merge Words: By using this tool, you can expand your list by adding words like [cheap], [affordable], [expensive] and so on to the front (or end) of your keywords. e.g., [affordable Nike running shoes].
