Free Keyword and SEO Tools for 2021
#1
Here's a list of free keyword tools and tips for a variety of resources. Some of these free resources have limited free use so be sure to check before you use them up.

Bookmark this page: Instead of having a bunch of browser bookmarks I put my favorite keyword related tools here. You can do the same and add your own favorites and comments below.

 
Keyword.io - I often start my searches here.  Generally uses "suggestions" from the drop down options for Google, YouTube, Bing, Amazon, eBay, Play Store, Instagram, Twitter. I like it because of the filters and the ability to filter for questions.

RightRelevance - finds trending topics. Sort of a "poor person's" Buzz Sumo. added June, 29, 2021
https://www.rightrelevance.com/
 

Soovle most popular keywords for Answers, Bing, Amazon, Wikipedia, Google, Amazon, Yahoo and YouTube all with a single search.

Semrush Free Option - Keyword Magic Tool

Uber Suggests - Creates lists of keywords and gives useful info for each.

Google Trends

Google's "People Also Ask" - Here's a good article about what it is and how to optimize for it:

Keyword Tool Dominator - Amazon, Bing, eBay, Etsy, Google autocomplete, Google Shopping, Walmart, YouTube
https://www.keywordtooldominator.com/keyword-tools

 
QuestionDB - Questions folks asked on Reddit.
https://questiondb.io/

 
AnswerThePublic - You only get two free searches a day now. Make them count.
https://answerthepublic.com/


AlsoAsked - These are questions people have asked...possibly the main benefit is actually for copywriting. I tried it and the first time it worked great so I created a free account. I've tried 6-7 searches since and it just "hangs". Will try again.
https://alsoasked.com/

 
WordStream - IMO the closest to a real "LSI" (co-citation) tool. Instead of just giving lists of keywords with the same root word, it gives related words too that don't share "root" words.
https://www.wordstream.com/keywords

 
LSI Graph - Also includes "semantically related" keyword phrases along with some other good info. Really good for creating web pages about a subject.
https://lsigraph.com/analysis/

 
Keyword "Sheeter" - Creates BIG lists of keywords based on the same root keyword:
https://keywordsheeter.com/

 
Side-by-Side SEO Comparison Tool - Enter two or more URLs to compare the SEO of the pages.

Spyfu - Competitor analysis tool can also be used to find the most beneficial pages on a site. What is the highest ranked Reddit page in Google for your keywords? Can you post a link on this page in a NON-SPAMMY way?
