KWFinder is a keyword research tool that helps SEOs discover search terms they can easily rank for.
It’s used by AirBnB, Adidas, Alexa, and countless other huge companies to improve their search engine visibility.
Interested in using it yourself?
Because today I’m going to show you how to use KWFinder while covering its pricing, features, and alternatives.
Let’s get into it!
How to use KWFinder
Begin by signing up for a free account from the homepage of KWFinder.
You will need to enter in your email, a secure password, then verify your email afterward.
This will bring you to the Mangools dashboard where you can choose which tool you’d like to use, KWFinder in this case, among upgrading your plan and other options.
Click the KWFinder shortcut under “App shortcuts” and it will forward you to the keyword research page.
Enter in a search term, select the language and location, and hit “Find keywords.”
The results page displays keyword ideas on the left along with metrics like:
- Trend analysis
- Search volume
- Keyword difficulty
Switching over to the “Autocomplete” option will give you alphabetical keyword suggestions.
I talked about using this method called alphabet soup in my post on coming up with blog ideas if you want to learn more about it.
Similarly, you can opt for the questions tab where it will display keyword suggestions in the form of questions.
These are great to use as header tags to break up content and to add more insight.
Selecting an individual keyword will display the keyword difficulty and search volume trend on the right.
Below this are the top results for that search term in Google. Use this to study the top performing websites and how they are producing content, doing their SEO, etc.
You can also click the checkbox next to keywords to either add them to a custom list or export them out as a CSV.
This is useful when if you wish to add search terms to other software.

Who doesn’t know Neil Patel? He acquired the SEO tool Ubersuggest in recent years, and it’s easily one of the best keyword research tools on the market.
Especially because it’s free.
Ubersuggest will allow you to analyze any search terms to find out more about its search volume, trend, and who’s ranking for it.
I love using this to check out the top performing content for any keywords, and planning how I can replicate their success.
You can read my Ubersuggest review to learn more about how to use it properly, as well.
Besides that, you can also use it to view the overview of any domain which covers its backlinks, total traffic, and rankings.

Another free SEO tool you’d be crazy not to use is Google’s keyword planning feature in the Google Ads platform.

It will give you the option of either discovering new keywords or receiving search volume forecasts for specific terms.
Keyword ideas from this tool can be used for generating organic traffic or placed into Google Ads campaigns.
I use this as the fundamental tool for my keyword research, and every SEO should have it in their tool belt.
