2. Keywords everywhere
If you aren’t familiar with Keywords Everywhere was a freemium browser addon that is available for both Chrome and Firefox. Unfortunately, this is now paid since 1 October 2019
Once installed, it displays the search volume for keywords right in Google’s search bar.
Why use this? There are so many reasons why this extension can help you optimise and grow your YouTube content.
Below I look at a few reasons for using this to grow your YouTube channel:
- Time Saver – You can quickly get the search volume for any keyword by going directly to Google and typing it in. This tool directly displays the search volume for that keyword in the Google Autocomplete section, as well as lists additional keywords. It also displays the cost-per-click (CPC) of the keyword and competition data. If you want to see more keyword ideas, just hit search, sit back and relax!
- Additional keyword suggestion – Once you search for a keyword in Google, it will also display Related Keywords on the right-hand side of the search results. These are the phrases that people often search for in addition to the keyword you typed in. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the search results, you’ll find even more keyword suggestions. It also displays the search volume for the keywords, so you don’t have to go and research them yourself.
- Available in Multiple platforms – this tool can be used on Google, Bing, Youtube, etc
- Download keywords in Pdf, CSV or Excel – Once you find your list of keywords, you can export them into any of these formats. This saves you from typing keywords one by one!
- Staring favourite keywords – This feature is available in the Google Search function. As you star the keywords you want, the tool will compile them into a list for later. Once you are finished with your keyword research, you can go to the extension icon at the top of your browser, click on “My favourite keywords”, and it will take you to your list of favourite keywords which you can edit and export them into a file.
- IT IS FREE!
