Free Keyword Research Tool for Bloggers

Free Inline Keyword Research Tool

WordTracker recently announced the launch of a new free Firefox extension that aids you in doing keyword research while blogging. The keyword tool works with any publishing software, and helps you ensure you work selected keywords into the content. The tool sits to the left of the browser window, and as you type, it will search your post and does an analysis of the text in your content to see if any of the phrases appear.

How to Use It

You can manually select keywords that you think would be highly relevant and then try to work them into the content. And when it is not possible to fit in a whole phrase naturally, you can always try to sprinkle those keyword modifiers that make up the phrase into your post's content. For instance, in the above post I worked in the words software, free, search, and generator into the content quite naturally in only a 4 sentence blog post.

“Bloggers often don’t take the time to do keyword research for each article they write – they just want to get their story out there. Now, bloggers have instant access to relevant keywords so they can easily produce optimized blog posts. That’s sure to bring them extra traffic.” Said Ken McGaffin, CMO at Wordtracker.

And with this tool Wordtracker offers a free companion keyword guide for bloggers from my buddy ChrisG worth checking out if you are new to blogging or SEO.

Although Wordtracker (and it's rivals in general are only good for quickly gathering a couple of metrics), it's quite a nice addition to have a tool like this that encourages you to scoop up keywords you may not have thought of while actually writing a post. I'm all for it.

"Wordpress recently announced the launch ..."

You mean "Wordtracker", right?

oh man. Nice catch Mark. That sorta shows the power of Wordpress's brand (or that I was influenced by seeing the image of the tool next to their admin panel).
