Cancel your SpyFu.com and KeywordSpy.com accounts. We have discovered what we believe to be the best free keyword research tool on the market. It’s called PPC Web Spy and it blows away any other keyword research tool you have used or are currently using. Download it free from Brad’s website:
What’s great about this tool is the fact that it doesn’t require software or any type of membership; it’s a simple plugin for your web browser. Once installed, you simply visit Google.com, punch in your desired keywords and you’ll see a cool little button appear under each of the Sponsored Ads. When clicked, you’ll see a list of the keywords this competitor is buying, where they rank and how much they are spending for each search term.
You’ll also see a dropdown menu in Google and can enable this amazing free keyword research tool to display the destination URL of the ad. No more right-clicking titles and pasting/truncating URLs in the browser.
We have also been playing around with a new geographical keyword tool called Keyword Everywhere. Punch in your keyword and select a state or multiple states and this tool will automatically generate a list of geo-targeted search terms. Saves me a TON of time in Excel.
