A keyword research tool on its own is very limited. You might find that one tool offers search volumes, while the next SEO tool offers something completely different.

But when you combine them together in a systematic process, you can perform effective SEO without spending a penny.

2. Keyword Sh*tter
3. Keywords Everywhere
4. Search engine auto suggest (not just Google)

You’ll learn the pros and cons of each tool, how to use them, and we’ll finish off this section with a step-by-step tutorial on how to use them together.

    Your first on the List GOOGLE CORRELATE has been shut down on 15th of December, 2019. The action has been taken by google due to low usage. Just commented to help someone out.

    Hi Sam,

    Love your tutorials, totally worthwhile watching simply because they're so informative.
    Tell me Sam, would I be able to build a blog or authority website on WordPress, whereby I have little understanding about the content and outsource all of the articles which would be written by a researching writer?

    Cheers,
    Peter

    Hey Sam, I have watched over 50% of your videos and I keep asking you many questions in the comment section but you did not reply.
    By the way, I am a beginner in blogging and do not have any money to invest in Ahrefs, but its on my first priority as soon as I make my first 99$.
