Alternative Keyword research tools?

There are powerful paid and free alternatives like SEMRUSH, Ahrefs, Google Keyword Planner, etc in the market. At this moment, let’s leave them for another day and explore how “Keyword Everywhere” really works.

What is “Keyword Everywhere”?

“Keyword Everywhere” tool is a browser addon and supports both “FireFox” and “Chrome” browsers.

This tool enables “Search volume, CPC & competition data on 16 websites useful for Internet Marketers!


What do Search volume, CPC and Competition mean?

Here are the detailed explanations of these terms.

Search Volume:

This is an average of the total searches that people have performed for a particular keyword per month over the last 12 months.

For e.g. a search volume of 1000 means that people have searched for this keyword an average of 1000 times every month for the last 12 months.


The Cost Per Click (CPC) is the amount that advertisers are paying for a single click for this particular keyword in Google Adwords.


The competition is a gauge of the number of advertisers that are running ads on Google Adwords for this specific keyword. The number goes from 0 to 1, with lower values signifying less number of advertisers and higher values signifying more advertisers.

How “Keyword Everywhere” get Search Volume?

Only Google releases their search volume. Even Amazon, YouTube, and other websites do not release this volume. Therefore “Keyword Everywhere” shows the Google Search volume whenever you run a search on YouTube, Amazon or other non-Google sites.

All tools that show volume for these sites (including paid tools) use the Google volume to estimate what volumes would be at these sites.

That way, you don’t need to copy and paste keywords into the Google Keyword Planner. The data shows up in your Chrome browser. Very cool right.

I updated the API Key, but unable to see the data

Please try to uninstall the add-on and then reinstall it. You do not need to regenerate the key – you can use the same one that was sent to you.

Isn’t it working like a builtin feature in the browser itself?

Update : Keywords everywhere is not a free tool anymore

They introduced a credit system and they charge you for buying credits to enable search results. As per their website “One credit gets you the volume, CPC and competition data for one keyword”. For details, you may visit this page.
