6 best answer the public alternatives


Ubersuggest is a freemium keyword research tool own by Neil Patel which you can use to do keyword research and find content ideas for your blog.

Apart from keyword research you can also use this tool to find link building opportunities and competitor analysis and also perform a website audit to find out all the technical issues of your website and you can get much more details to improve your website SEO.

But when it comes to the keyword research what I really like about this tool is that it is a free tool which allows you to do three searches for free everyday and after you enter any seed keyword in the tool you will get the search volume,

cost per click, the search trend in mobile and desktop searches and the average competition for that keyword in both organic and paid SEO, and different variations of the keyword in the form of questions, prepositions, comparisons, suggestions and related keywords.

What’s more interesting about this tool is that you can also enter any competitor domain name of your industry and find out what are the keywords that they are ranking for so that you can target your competitor keywords and create better content than them and outrank them in a search results.

One of the main things that I love about this tool is that it is very simple, easy to use and very beginner friendly interface, and you can also download the Chrome extension of the ubersuggest to get the keyword ideas recommendations whenever you search any keyword in Google right on the search results page which will save you a lot of time doing keyword research in a tool and this tool is also getting updated quite frequently with new features.

It has a 7 day free trial which you can try if you want to and it also has a monthly subscription of only $12 and a lifetime deal of $120 which is a wonderful option if you want to go for a paid subscription.

By the way I have written an article on Ubersuggest review which you can check it out here.
