Here’s the problem:
But that changes today.
Keywords Everywhere is a powerful keyword research tool that helps you find the best keywords for your campaigns.
It provides accurate metrics right where you need them.
The best part? It has a completely free version.
In this article, I will show you how to use Keywords Everywhere to boost your search traffic step by step.
Your keyword research process is about to get a whole lot easier (and more powerful).
What Is Keywords Everywhere?
Keywords Everywhere is a freemium SEO keyword research tool that makes it fast and easy to do powerful keyword research directly from the Google search results.
You read that right. No need to login to any SEO tool online.
You simply install the Keywords Everywhere Chrome/Firefox extension and you can see the most important keyword search right there on Google.
It displays keyword suggestions so you can find the best keywords for your SEO campaign.
To get access to more advanced features, you can opt for a premium account. This is done through purchasing credit.
Thankfully credits don’t cost a lot so if you opt for the premium tools, you get tons of valuable data without breaking the bank.
How To Use Keywords Everywhere The Right Way
Keywords Everywhere makes keyword research simple… You just need to know how to use it. Here’s how to use Keywords Everywhere for effective keyword research.
Step 1: Set Up Keywords Everywhere
You need to download and install the Keywords Everywhere extension. They have extensions for two web browsers:
Once you have installed the extension, you need to decide whether you want access to the premium features.
If you only want the free features…
…your setup is done and you don’t need to do anything else.
To get access to the premium features you need to get an API key. This includes making yourself a Keywords Everywhere account.
Click on the GET API KEY and type in your email address.
You will receive an email with your account API key. This is important because every purchase you make is attached directly to this API key.
Click on the link in the email to access your API key.
Now copy the API key and open Keywords Everywhere. Click Settings.
Paste the API Key into the API settings box.
Click Validate and your API is set up correctly. Now you just need to purchase credits so you can access the premium features.
Open Keywords Everywhere and in the bottom right click Purchase Additional Credits.
Choose the number of credits you need and checkout. In my experience, just $10 of credits will last most people 6+ months.
A word to the wise:Don’t buy more than you need because credits expire after 12 months.
Your credits will be added to your account. Now you just need to turn on the premium features. Open Keywords Everywhere and click on the toggle.
There you go! You are ready to start using Keywords Everywhere.
