The most ample keyword data for you
3 new research methods & more features out in Rank Tracker
Keywords are the foundation of any SEO campaign. Optimizing for the most cost-effective, relevant search terms is sure to bring you the desired rankings and traffic and save big in the meantime, both time- and money-wise.
Obviously, the more of the right keywords you can target, the better. Alas, finding those gets increasingly difficult: with Google Autocomplete closing its API, many free keyword tools (like Übersuggest) may stop working — unable to get the data they were built upon.
But here's the good news: even after the API shutdown, Google Autocomplete will still be available in your Rank Tracker. And here is the even better news: in today's update, we've added 3 new keyword research techniques to Rank Tracker's 17 existing methods, letting you get even more valuable keyword ideas right from Google:
And that's not all — read on to find out which other improvements in Rank Tracker's keyword research functionality are out today!
1. Find and analyze terms you already rank for
Ranking for keywords you haven't been specifically optimizing for (and probably haven't even thought of!) is surprisingly common.
What if you could have a list of such keywords? That would let you assess all of them comprehensively, pick the most profitable ones, and further optimize your pages for these. would require much less time and effort than trying to get to the top for keywords your site isn't even listed in Google for. A bit of keyword-targeted on-page SEO will get you a long way — and can save you months of hard SEO work.
The latest version of Rank Tracker lets you quickly import keywords your site is already listed for right from Google Webmaster Tools.
