You’re most likely aware that keyword research is a very important part of the SEO process. You can’t really optimize a page without knowing what you’re optimizing that page for. This morning I learned that WordTracker is currently offering a free 7 day trial to the full version of their Keyword Research tools.
To take advantage of of your free trial you’ll need to create an account and WordTracker will ask for your credit card information. The credit card request is to prevent people from registering for one free trial after another and WordTracker will send you a reminder as the trial is expiring to either cancel or register for a monthly subscription.
If your keyword research is limited to a site or two the one week trial is more than enough time to build a list of keywords so this is probably a good time to take a look at what WordTracker offers, especially if you’ve never used the full version before.
If you prefer not to give out your credit card info you can always use the Free Keyword Suggestion Tool WordTracker offers. It doesn’t have everything the full version does, but it can still be a valuable tool when doing your initial research.
WordTracker also offers a free keyword research guide. The guide walks you through the process of researching keywords for a fictional company and what to do with those keywords. I read it a couple of years ago when first learning about keywords and found it helpful. It’s filled with lots of tips and insights into keyword research and is definitely worth a read.
If you have some keyword research you want to do or have always been curious about what WordTracker offers give the free 7 day trial a spin. If you still find keyword research confusing read the guide. It’s a quick read and does give some good tips and techniques.
