Keyword tools

One of the best ways to get visitors (prospects) to your site is via search engines. Web users find your site through search engines by entering keywords or key phrases. Nothing beats a site that ranks high on search engines for selected keywords.

However, you should know which keywords net surfers use on search engines. For example, if you have a site that provides Boiler Repairs and sells Boilers for homes and offices in the UK, you should research to know which keywords your prospects might employ.

Through the keyword tools listed on this page you can discover additional, and probably better, keywords based on your selection. Thus, taking our example above, the keyword tools would not only list out keyphrases based on “Boilers” but also synonyms that would help you in understanding visitor search patterns. You can then construct keywords based on those which were listed by the services and develop the web page content accordingly

Know which keywords your competition uses

The services below are not ‘direct’ keyword discovery tools so to say. However, they can help you know which keywords your competition uses and you can then eat their lunch. The Alexa tool provides a decent list of the keywords while Compete, at the time of writing, gives only the top five (you can pay to access more data).
