A keyword research tool is something that will help you analyze keywords to help you better choose one that will be the winner. Here you’ll find out the best free keyword research tools you can use whenever, to help you locate the keyword that’s going to boost your chances of making money online.

First up we got Wordtracker. Its a well-known, free keyword research tool that has a lot of traffic going to it because its been around for quite some time giving it a good reputation and standing in the keyword research tool area. At a first glance this tool is very elegant looking and has a nice simple, easy to follow layout that really anyone can follow. Once you’ve entered a keyword it will follow up with the top 10 keywords to help you refine your keyword and also supply with a rating of how competitive it is to how many people searched the term. As for the accuracy, it is fairly precise and will no doubt help you out when finding the perfect keyword.

Next up SEO Book. Although you have to register to use this keyword research tool, there’s no doubt it’s a good tool to use for finding keywords. The keywords they offer are based on how much they’ve been searched on a daily basis which can be useful in certain situations. A great thing about SEO Book is they not only offer Googles’ data but Bings’ as well. This can be good if you’re planning to do SEO in Bing as well. Another good thing is they offer is estimations for cost per click (CPC) and monthly value. However the only part that isn’t that convenient is the fact you must register to access this at all and some of the tools they offer give no explanation as to what they do which can be rather frustrating.

Finally we have Keyword Discovery. While the version they offer that is free is extremely basic, it will still give you a good amount of suggestions for keywords upon the topic chosen by you. However they do give you an annual search volume which may benefit you in some cases but can be inaccurate in others. This tool can benefit you if you’re not only searching for one specific search engine but for a whole bunch because this tool will browse over 100+ search engines! However the free version of this tool  will limit you to 100 or so results.

Given all these free research tools it may be over whelming to choose between them. These are just to give you the gist of your keyword and branches of it. If you’re looking for extremely valuable and accurate keyword research you’re going to have to spend a little bit of cash to do so.
