I took up the offer of a 7-Day free trial to piece together this Wordtracker Review. With the most influential names in the industry praising it – the likes of Aaran Wall (SEObook), Perry Marshall (Author of ‘The Ultimate Guide to Google Adwords’) and Danny Sullivan (SearchEngineWatch) on there knees, taking up a free trial doesn’t seem too much to ask?
I’ve already been familiar with Wordtracker since I was introduced to their
free keywords tool
which I generally use for some preliminary and general keyword research. Their free tool with give you a generalized list of the top 100 keywords based upon your original seed word. You can then click on each keyword produced to see the results of it has as a seed word.
The Wordtracker Review
Upon first impressions of the full works however, it is an altogether more serious affair. You can piece together much bigger and more comprehensive lists – the free tool skips a few keywords – and then use data that isn’t so generalized. Geo-targeting keywords for example? Yup.
For a webmaster trying to target country-specific users, such as online store owners, this opens up a whole new dimension to keyword research. Although data based upon the whole internet is useful, it’s better to know what customers on your doorstep are typing!
There are other tools and settings you can evaluate keywords on too – although the total lists are limited up to only 1000 keywords. For all but the most exhaustive keyword users, it’s more than enough. And of course, all the keywords can be exported and imported to other accounts such as Google Adwords.
Wordtracker also provides dozens of guides, articles, e-Books (such as Aaron Wall's SEO book: 50 Kick-Ass Keyword Strategies) and a newsletter. The newsletter is well worth subscribing to; the mailouts aren’t frequent enough to pester you and the content is some of the best I’ve seen on the net. The last mailout included an analysis of press releases as a link building strategy.
Would I recommend Wordtracker – definitely. You can take advantage of there free tool anytime, but with the free trial, accessing the comprehensive tools for a week is a blessing. If you’re like me and don’t like to tweak keyword choices over time, then a subscription makes little or no sense anyway.
