This site welcomes you with this slogan: “Get the most cost-effective semantically related keywords for all your SEO and marketing needs”. But what does this mean? LSI stands for Latent Semantic Indexing. It sounds very sophisticated but just means related terms. In LSI Graph you enter your keyword and it will generate related word options. This helps you include them in your content so that search engines understand what your content is about in-depth and position you better. Something a little annoying about the page is the advertising and they make you enter an email to access it. Other than that it is an excellent tool.

Just enter the URL in the search bar and you’re done. GT Metrix will give you a rating of your site’s performance and, as its name suggests, give you comprehensive graphs of your site. On the other hand, keep in mind that the process may take a while, depending on how many people are using this tool.

There are many keyword searchers. Answer the Public gives a twist to the other SEO tools. This tool focuses on the questions people ask in forums, Quora, social networks and transforms them into excellent keywords. You also have the option to search for “versus keywords”, these keywords are less searched and therefore less competitive. They do not serve to attract a lot of visitors to your site but to curate your content to those who already have some knowledge about the topic you are dealing with. These visits, although few, will make you appear in the first search options because they were made with less usual keywords. Of course, you have to decide wisely when to use them.

It’s an easy-to-use tool that lightens the burden of searching for good keywords and ensures you’re choosing the ones your target market already uses.

1. Exploding Topic

How can we know the topics that people in the world are talking about the most? Google Trends is the best-known option, however, to use it you already need to know what you are looking for. In a way, rather than revealing what is in fashion, it only confirms whether something is trending or not. Exploding Topics is innovative in this regard. It shows you all the new trends. Thus you have the opportunity to exploit keywords before everyone else to get one of the first places in searches. Although it’s not bullet-proof, maybe something will be trending just for a day, you have to take care of that.
