- 5 Should You Join The KW Finder?
If there’s a better keyword research tool than the KW Finder then I have yet to find it.
But be warned..
It’s very addictive and I had to literally claw myself away from it so that I could write this review. 🙂
Update: I conducted an interesting little KW Finder test that resulted in a website that now makes over $300 per week!
I’ll tell you all about it in a minute..
- I should mention before we get started that this post is a review for the KW Finder tool from KWFinder.com
Right now they’re offering a free account here which gives you 5 daily searches to tryout the tool.
Do you remember last year when Google stopped giving out exact search numbers?
And started showing approximate numbers like this..
Well that really threw a spanner in the works for a lot of us people who do SEO.
I mean 100k – 1M could mean anything.
Does the keyword get 110,000 or 999,000 searches per month?
There’s a huge difference.
So I was pretty bummed out as were a lot of other SEO’s.
But a week later while I was reading through the Warrior Forum I heard about this new keyword tool called the KW Finder.
So I decided to check it out.
The first time I tried it I almost spat out my coffee with excitement when I saw it was showing the exact search numbers.
I thought “Hell YEAH, we’re back in business!”
So right off the bat here’s the main reason that I love the KW Finder tool..
If I search “best keyword tool” into Google’s keyword tool I get this..
Not that helpful is it?
But if I put that same keyword into KWFinder I get this..
BINGO! 480 searches per month. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
It also tells you how many visitors you can expect to get as well as how difficult it is to rank for the keyword.
(As well as a whole bunch of other stuff that I’ll get into in a minute.)
It even has a nice little color code based on keyword difficulty.
After using up my free daily credits I decided to signup for a premium account and do a little test..
My KW Finder Test
I wanted to see if the keywords it was marking as “easy” really were easy to rank for or not.
So I picked a niche which happened to be about getting rid of moobs.
I typed in my main keyword which gets over 40,500 searches per month but is very competitive.
So I didn’t want to go for the main keyword.
But the KW Finder tool gave me over 700 keywords to consider.
Out of those 700 there were literally HUNDREDS of low competition long tail keywords to choose from.
Look at all the greens!
I felt like a kid in a candy store. 🙂
So on with the experiment..
I picked 100 long tail keywords that the KW Finder tool had marked as easy.
And I decided to create a brand new website and write a 600+ word article for each one.
Zero backlinks and zero social media.
Just a new domain with 100 articles posted on it.
Luckily because I’m into health and fitness I was able to write the content myself.
And with the help of
a little a lot of coffee I was able to write and post the articles in less than a week.
Each article had at least one picture or video and linked to at least 2 other posts on the site.
I also monetized the site by adding a banner ad to a Clickbank product and by linking to the product in the content.
After posting the articles I completely forgot about the website for a month while I focused on another website.
1 month later..
So I couldn’t believe it when I checked my rankings a month later and found that I was on page 1 of Google for almost every single keyword.
With zero backlinks or promotion.
But it gets even better..
Because the website now gets over 250 visitors per day.
It get’s even better..
Because when I logged into the Clickbank account I had setup for this website I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this..
The little niche site that took me less than a week to create and had zero promotion now makes me $385 per week!
That’s an extra $1,541 per month in my pocket thanks to the low competition keywords I found using the KW Finder tool.
Ever since I found the KW Finder tool I feel like I’ve stumbled onto some kind of secret weapon.
There are literally thousands of niches out there so it’s like a goldmine of opportunities.
The KW Finder is just a tool so you still need to put in some action.
But not that much. 🙂
I mean it took me less than a week to build a site that now makes me an extra few hundred dollars per week.
Apart from hosting there’s not many things I’m willing to pay monthly for but the KWFinder tool is one of them.
Even if Google started sharing exact keyword data again I think I would still continue to pay for the KWFinder because it’s much better.
You can create a free KW Finder account here but I’d recommend the premium account because it gives you 700 related keywords per search which is what you really need if you’re going to find all the little golden nugget long tail keywords.
Anyway super happy I found the KW Finder tool and very thankful for all of the new keyword opportunities it’s given me.
What Is The KW Finder?
The KW Finder is an online cloud based keyword research tool to help you find tons of juicy keywords to rank for and start getting traffic from.
Traffic = $$$
No matter what niche or market you are in this keyword tool will help you discover some worthwhile keywords you can target.
Every time I login to the KWFinder tool I feel like I’m entering a goldmine and every time I use it I find more keywords to rank for and start profiting from.
It’s the only keyword research tool that I use and recommend.
Let’s delve deeper into what the KW Finder tool actually does and how it works.
A Clean And Intuitive Design
The first thing that you’ll notice when you start using this tool is just how clean and fresh the design is and how easy it is to figure out.
After just a few minutes of playing around with it you should feel right at home and on your way to finding some profitable keywords.
Another thing that I like is that everything loads fast.
With other keyword tools it can take ages for keywords to load but everything with the KW Finder tool seems to be instant which is great if you’re impatient like me.
On the left hand side you have the keywords and their metrics and on the right you can see the current top 10 competitions for any of those keywords and see how many links and shares they have.
If the top 10 sites for a keyword have lots of links and shares then that keyword is probably going to be more difficult to rank for but this will be reflected in the “Keyword Difficulty Score”.
The KW Finder is easy on the eye and it loads fast so top marks there.
Oh yeah and it’s also mobile friendly!
3 Ways To Find Keywords With The KW Finder
When you first login you’ll see a search box with 3 options..
This is your standard keyword research tool.
You enter in your keyword and it will instantly generate up to 700 related keywords from the KW Finder database.
99% of the time I use the “Suggestions” to find keywords.
The Autocomplete tool uses Google’s autocomplete suggestions to find keywords.
You know where you type something into Google and a drop down appears with a bunch of suggestions?
Well that’s what the KW Finder tool is using to find keywords when you search using autocomplete.
It also appends and prepends your keyword with different letters to find even more keywords from Google suggest.
The “Questions” tool is similar to the “Autocomplete” tool however instead of prepending letters in front of your keyword it puts question keywords such as how, what, where, why and when etc.
These question keywords tend to have lower search numbers but they’re also lower competition so they can be easier to rank for.
Which one to use? Most of the time I use the standard Suggestions tool as it loads instantly and gives the most number of keywords.
Now and again I’ll dig deeper and use the “Autocomplete” and “Questions” tools to find some extra juicy keywords.
One thing that I really like about this tool is that it estimates based on the search volume and position in Goolge how many visitors each website is getting from that keyword.
As you can see the KW Finder estimates that the website ranking number 1 for the keyword “keyword tool” is getting around 17,843 searches per month.
17843/30 = 595 visitors per day.
Of course, this number is just an estimate but I can tell you based on my own rankings that the KW Finders “Estimated Visits” calculation is pretty accurate.
It’s pretty fun to look at a keyword and say..
“Hey, if I can rank number 1 for this keyword I can expect this many visitors per day!”
Keyword Difficulty And Serp Checker
The KW Finder tool analyzes every single keyword that it finds and gives it a difficulty rating.
The tool looks at the top 10 of Google and analyzes the competition.
It then gives it a number between 0-100 and a color rating.
If the websites ranking at the top have lots of links, shares and a high domain authority then that keyword is going to be more difficult to rank for.
Just because a keyword is competitive that doesn’t mean you should ignore it though because if it’s competitive then a top ranking could be very profitable.
From my experience the keywords that the KW Finder marks as very competitive aren’t necessarily impossible to rank for but they will just take a bit longer.
If you see a green keyword with a score between 0-30 then there’s a good chance that you can rank for it within weeks and there’s tons of them!
The Serp Checker
The “Serp Checker” is another tool that’s integrated into the KWFinder.
It’s basically a competitor analysis tool that looks at almost 50 different metrics to determine the level of competition of a keyword.
This is what gives you the keyword difficulty score.
If you’re serious about ranking for a keyword then you should take a look at the serp checker for that keyword to see just how strong or weak the competition is.
It gathers data from MOZ, Majestic, social media websites and puts it all on one screen and comes up with a SEO competition score.
It also gives each website ranking in the top 10 a score so you can see how difficult it will be to out rank each website.
The Results Filter
The results filter is something that I use often. The filters are;
Search volume: Maybe you only want to see keywords that get more than 1,000 searches per month?
CPC: This filters based on the average cost per click of the PPC results. Maybe you’re looking to do some PPC advertising and want to find keywords that cost less than $1 per click. Well then just set the Maximum CPC to 1 and the KW finder will show you all the keywords with an average CPC of less than $1!
Or maybe you’re looking to monetize with adsense and want to find keywords that have a high CPC so that you can get some of that adsense moolah.
PPC: You can also filter by PPC competition. With 0 being the least competitive and 100 being the most competitive.
Include and Exclude keywords: Maybe you don’t want to see any keywords with the word “Free” in them.
Well all you need to do is add “free” to the exclude word list and the KWFinder tool will remove all those keywords.
Number of words: The general belief is that the more words in a search term the easier it will be to rank for it.
The KW Finder lets you filter for a Min and Max number of words.
SEO Difficulty: If you only want to see the green labelled easy to rank for keywords then put 30 in the MAX box and the KW Finder tool will only show you keywords with a difficulty rating of 30 or less!
So those are the filters and they really help you to drill down and find those gold nugget keywords.
How about filtering for keywords that get more than 1,000 searches per month and have a difficulty rating of less than 20?
By doing that you’ll find a bunch of keywords with some nice search volume that you can rank for quickly!
Search Related Keywords With 1 Click
The KW Finder tool really helps you to expand and find new keywords with their 1 click “search related keywords” button.
For example, I searched “keyword tool” and one of the keywords was “seo keyword tool” and after clicking the search related keywords button it opened up a whole new wold of keywords that I didn’t see from my original search of just “keywords tool”.
Every time you find a nice keyword just click the button and you can find more and more keywords.
I’ve found some of my best keywords doing this.
Search By Country Or Language
You can use the tool to find keywords based on location and language.
Maybe you only want to see the search volume for a keyword from UK searchers.
For example, if I search “best keyword tool” in the KW Finder you can see that worldwide that keyword gets 480 searches per month.
But if I select United Kingdom from the location box and do the search again you can see that there are 27 searches per month for that keyword from people from the UK.
If you’re looking for local keywords or you only want to target people from a specific country then this feature will be very helpful to you!
The KW Finder Results Box
Let’s take a look at the results box. It’s very self explanatory..
Suggestions: The first column is your list of keywords. Depending on the membership package you signed up for you will see up to 700 keywords here!
Next to each keyword you have the “search related keywords” button which I talked about above.
Trend: The next column is called “Trend” and it shows you the search volume trend for the last 12 months.
This is a handy little visual tool whether the keyword is gaining or losing searchers.
Many keywords go through cycles so the trend may go up and down.
Generally though if you see a keyword that was getting lots of searches a year ago and has consistently declined it’s because the keyword was a fad and people are losing interest in it so you may want to avoid keyword like this..
But some keywords are gaining searches like this..
You can target these keywords early while the volume is growing fast.
Search: The next column is the average monthly search volume for that keyword over the last 12 months.
You can click the top of the column and it will sort the keywords based on search volume so you can see the keywords from the list that get searched the most..
CPC: The next column is called CPC and this shows you the average cost per click for that keyword if you were to advertise on adwords.
Again, by clicking the top of the column you can sort from highest to lowest or vice versa.
This is great if you plan on doing some PPC adversising as you can find some nice cheap keywords.
And it’s also good if you like to monetize with adsense because if a keywords has a high CPC and you can rank for that keyword then you know that there is money being spent via advertisers so you will make nice money when people click on your adsense ads on your site.
Another thing to note is that if a keyword has a high CPC then that means the keywords is profitable.
If people are spending $3 per click then they’re probably earning more than that in profits.
If you can rank for these keywords and get free traffic then you know there’s money to be made.
PPC: The next column shows you the competition of the PPC results. A higher number means there is more competition for that keyword on adwords.
DIFF: The last column and one of my favorites is the difficulty rating column which I’m sure by now you know all about.
The cool thing is that by clicking the top of the column you can sort them from easiest to hardest!
The Right-Hand Side Of The KW Finder
On the left you have the keyword tool which we have been through above and on the right you can see more details for that keyword.
I like that you can see the search volume for each month.
And it also inserts a SERP Checker snippet which shows you the top 10 of Google for that keyword so you can instantly get an idea of how strong the competition is.
You can also click the “Analyze SERP” button and it will take you to the SERP Checker tool where you can dig deeper into the competition.
The number 1 ranking has 13,428 links and a page authority of 74!
As you can see the keyword “keyword tool” is very competitive and just by looking at the top 10 I can tell that this keyword would be extremely difficult to rank for and would take quite some time!
Right now the KW Finder ranks number 11 for the term keyword tool and I’ve seen it in the number 10 spot a few times.
I think they deserve to be #1!
So think of the left hand side as the keyword tool and the right hand side as a quick way to see the strength of the competition.
KW Finder Search History
There’s also a “History” button which shows your last 100 searches.
You may have noticed that on the left of each keyword there is a check box.
When a keyword takes your fancy you can tick the check box and click the “Add to list” button and add the keyword to a list for later.
If you’re in a bunch of niches then this is a great way to keep all your nice keywords grouped together.
You can add up to 1,000 keywords to each list.
Once you’ve created a list you can access it by clicking the “Lists” tab.
The KW Finder tool makes it super easy to export keywords. Just click the check box of the keywords you like (or all of them) and then click the “Export” button.
You can export to clipboard or CSV.
So this one has been a HUGE timesaver for me.
I recently found an Amazon products keyword list on somebody’s blog with about 500 keywords in it.
Unfortunately that keyword list didn’t have any search volume metrics or anything, just the keywords.
So I opened up the KW Finder tool and started typing them in one by one to see how many searches each keyword was getting.
After doing about 50 I realized that it was going to take me ages to check all 500!
And that’s when I realized there was an “Import” tab.
So I clicked it and this is what I saw..
Then I just copied and pasted the remaining 450 keywords and clicked the “Import to KWFinder” button and Voila within seconds it showed me the search volume for all of the keywords!
The import function is a huge timesaver if you have any outside keyword lists you want to get data on.
The KWFinder Support
Thankfully I haven’t had any problems with the tool but I did email them once and got a reply within 45 minutes and they do have a chat box on the site which regularly shows that someone is online.
After checking out their blog at https://mangools.com/blog/ you can see that they reply to comments and are helpful.
So I’m confident that the support is great and if you do ever have any issues they will be around to help.

Should You Join The KW Finder?
Well first of all I just wanted to give a quick update on the website that I set up for my experiment.
There’s been a lot of reading so I’ll give you a quick reminder about the experiment.
Basically, I found a bunch of keywords using the KW Finder tool with a really low difficulty rating and built a site for those keywords.
The keywords were such low competition that I ranked fast and started making around $300 or so per week.
The last screen shot was from March and as of right now it is October and the website is still making money despite not touching it for months!
Whether you want to use the KW Finder to find lots of low competition keywords or you’re a seasoned SEO pro and you’re not afraid of a little competition I 100% recommend the KWFinder tool.
