2 Best and FREE Keywords Tools of All Time - No Further Searching

You don't need a score of keywords tools

This post may not be the right one for you if you’re looking for a hundred keywords research tools. You may quit reading if you must get a dozen of KEYWORD TOOLS that will waste your time and lure you into paying ignorance.

But if you’re just in need of one or two ever-consistent tools that work for all niches and all blogs out there, digest and apply this known but underrated guide.

First, why do you think a blogger needs 20 keyword competition tools? Be it free or paid, you could be wasting your time and money in the long run.

Well, I was easily fooled by those posts too, in my early days. When I searched for keywords planner or keywords finder, some gigantic posts filled Google's first page.

Their titles can wow you truly.

  • Latest list of complete keywords tool 202...
And so on…

You must have seen that too?

I nearly dished my blogging ambition because of information overwhelming back then. Most of them just feed us the same posts with a few or no twists.

Well, I’m here to save you the same pain I went through before I knew what to go for finally.

I know what may be in your mind.

If I must choose only one out of hundreds of those tools, out there, I might have been paid for an advertisement. Am I right?

Well, I’m here to surprise you.

You Don’t Need Other Keywords Tools Than Google

Yes, you heard me.

You don’t need all SEMRush, SECockpit, Ahrefs, SpyFu, KWFinder, Serpstat and so on.

One way or the other they aim to make money from you in the long run.

What if you had one that cost you nothing and worked better?

#1. Google "Search Related To"

In fact, this is what I resolved to after years of using others. I don’t claim others didn’t work. They worked fine. Yet, you don’t need them. They’re just exploiting your ignorance.

Let me explain…

When you’re out for keyword research, all you want are ideas around what Google and other search engine users are looking for.

Google has records of those users. How?

Look at the picture below.

Google Search related to section

That’s called the related-search snippet.

If you search for certain terms on Google, it will give you some results. Below the results, you'll find these related phrases and terms.

This is originally designed to help you if you want to write posts around the keywords you search for.

This is not just ordinarily related posts, it gives you ideas of what people are looking for but Google believes no good or enough information is available on (at least for now).

These are your takes if you’re seriously ready to help searchers and mean to rank for those keywords.

How to Explore "Google Search Related to”

As already said, this gives you what to write on. You don’t need to care about what they’re not looking for because they don’t care if you write otherwise.

To get the in-depth information around these related searches, click on each of the links in this snippet and see more on the other side of your pages.

Copy them to Wordpad or notepad. Then, sort things out in order to form perfect blog titles.

Aside from this, find ways to blend the keywords (phrases in the search-related snippets) into your posts' descriptions and main bodies. See why search description can be golden in helping you rank well.

That’s the only way Google and any other search engines will rank your posts. When next searchers hit the Search button, you're more likely to be right before them.

Having said that, while blending the keywords in your posts, avoid keywords spamming (filling the pages with the same keywords). I suggest you use synonyms in certain places. Google is fast at learning languages than humans.

#2. Google "Search Suggestion or Autocomplete"

This is the brother to “Google Search Related to”.

To use this in your keywords planning assignment, visit Google search and type in a few words from the phrases or sentences you’re targeting.

It looks like this.
Google Search Suggestions

Is this familiar?

I bet it is.

This is also called “Google Autocomplete

Just as the "Related to", it works fine in guiding you on what readers are looking for online.

Google remembers their findings and you can create your posts around those keywords.


If you've noticed in this post, I didn’t talk about Google Adword Keywords Planner and Search Console. Some internet savvies might even be expecting them to be included. I used these too and it deserves a new post. Subscribe to receive that.

With months of using the Search related Snippet, I hardly remembered Google Adword Keywords Planner and Console. The ones discussed here worked well for me and it’s easier to use.

Do you think you will miss anything in your keywords planning projects if you use the “Google Search related to”? Do you think using other keywords tools helps you rank better? Share your experiences with us. Leave a comment below.
