My Favorite Keyword Tool - and Its Free !

By
Mortgage and Lending with i Cantu Media LTD

Years ago I used to subscribe to paid keyword banks. These are subscription services that show you what keywords people search for. You can learn a lot about your audience and what they are typing in to find real estate services, new home purchases and rental information. There is a number count for every keyword search such as:

New Home Sales             45,000  Searches per month
Luxury Condo Rental     54,500  Searches per month

... and so on.


I used to use Wordze and Wordtracker. They are great services but I found the metrics to be a little

lofty. The numbers get confusing when you think about how many people look for certain things

and how often per month. Sometimes the searches looked very low and then sometimes they didn't

look popular enough.

 

Google has a free keyword tool too that is pretty good but again.... the numbers of searches for

certain criteria seemed very low. I know that in the New York and Chicago markets the number for

luxury living is very high. So I just used these services as a rough guideline when I created sites or

created web media.

 

Google hit the wall recently with their keyword tool upgrade. I thought it was perfect the way it was before. It used to be very simple to use. Now there are sliding menus and it keeps the material you are searching for out of view. Overall this can be very frustrating for someone who doesn't have time or patience to fumble through the confusing navigation.

 

Now, I found something I like even better. And the best part is that it's FREE to use.
