What is The Best Keyword Tool? Here is my Top Pick!

Having a great keyword tool at your disposal can be a GREAT asset to your success online. But since there are SO many, the question is, what’s the best one?

Here is the answer:

Jaaxy: My #1 pick as being the best one (And it’s free).

I’ve been in online marketing for many years. Through that time, I have tried many different tools and I am certain you have tried at least one of these too:

Yeah there’s a bunch and the whole reason I even tried them out was because I wasn’t happy with them, and switched to others people were telling me to use, but because they were never really that useful and the SEO game changed, they all became useless to me…

Some of them were paid, while other like Google’s was free. But it wasn’t until I started using Jaaxy that I stopped looking around for better alternatives.

You see with most other tools on the market, there exist a number of different “problems” (in my opinion) which I feel Jaaxy makes up for and when you start using it, you’ll understand why…

But perhaps you may not know what the issues are with these existing options, so let me tell you. Here are…

1. They are TOO complex:

I’m a pretty simple guy, so whenever I use any sort of program, including KW tools, I want there to be simplicity. One of the major problems I see is that many of them are just too complex to use. They provide way too much information which can actually confuse, such as providing WAY too many stats and numbers, which causes you to wonder which one to focus on.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying it’s bad, but it’s almost like a smartphone with all these fancy features and out of a 100 people who use it, I’d venture to say MOST of these people will never even use it to 10% of it’s full potential. 

Often times with these things (Keyword Country is a perfect example), you get far too many selections/options and it’s all bundled up in a way that makes it difficult to find your real goal:

  • Your KW’s popularity (how many times it’s searched for).
  • It’s true competition.

I don’t know about you, but when I look for KWs, that’s all I’m really interested in. To filter out how I want it to show through many different options just makes the whole process annoying and makes me worry that I am doing something wrong.

Complex = bad. 

How Jaaxy makes up for this: 

Jaaxy does have pretty much every feature most of the other options on the market have, but it’s not all bundled up and it’s much easier to navigate and understand the whole system.

All you do is enter your keyword and it tells you the exact competition and how many people look for it. There’s no need to filter anything out.

You are given the best accuracy right off the bat. If you want to go further and see things like:

  • Insights on your competition.
  • Where you could capitalize on ranking on your keyword.
  • Seeing hot trends.
  • Seeing if domains are available.
  • Seeing if there’s affiliate programs available.
  • Did I mention it’s very accurate in giving great SEO numbers on competition? 
  • And more…

You could do that with Jaaxy as well, but in most scenarios, you won’t even need to worry about this. Long story short, Jaaxy is VERY simple to use.

In fact, here is a screenshot (had to downsize pic) of a search I recently did:

2. They are too pricey:

I’ve seen ones that charge you nearly $100 a month to use them. Frankly, I find this to be TOO much, especially since I know that I’ll never use it to it’s full potential (or figure out how to…).

How Jaaxy makes up for this:

Jaaxy currently provides people with 30 free searches before it offers an upgrade for either $20/month or $60/month. Personally I find the $60 too much and use the $20 feature. It fits me perfectly. At the very least, I’d recommend trying the 30 searches and seeing how you like it. They don’t ask you for a CC or any personal info.

3. Most of them have outdated metrics:

Places like Market Samurai (which was once considered to be the best!) do not provide the most up to date #’s on search volumes and competition. The world of keywords is constantly changing. Trends are rising/falling and with that, you have people looking for things in a different manner.

So basically, certain metrics which at one point were relevant, are no longer viable. I’ve seen way too many tools out there that simply do not show you:

  • Accurate search volumes.
  • Accurate competition #’s.

And I know that because when I compared them to Jaaxy’s stats (which did prove to me it shows accurate results), I was given completely different numbers.

And since those numbers are really the most important (trust me, the other metrics are just a distraction!), you need a tool that provides accurate results and doesn’t distract or confuse you with the other metrics.

How Jaaxy makes up for this:

Well I think I already said why, but I will do it again: It’s as accurate as can be, period, especially with it’s competition numbers because it takes it STRAIGHT out of Google. How much more accuracy do you need? 

4. Not mobile friendly:

Rarely will anyone ever have to use their mobile phone to look for keywords, but I’ve had scenarios where I was in social gatherings and was asked/consulted about some online business ideas. Had I used the other options above, I would have had issues logging in and checking the KW stats on my phone. Not with Jaaxy though…

How Jaaxy makes up for this:

It’s completely mobile friendly. With no laptop/computer/tablet present, I simply took out my phone and logged into Jaaxy and showed people how potentially successful their ideas could be. Or maybe I have a KW/niche idea pop into my head and have no way of checking it so I can use the mobile option to find out if it’s good before I forget.

So while doing research on your mobile phone is rare and really optional, just having it there makes life a lot easier. Because if you do online marketing seriously like I do, you WILL have ideas pop up often, and that may happen when you are not in front of your laptop. 

5. Here’s the truth behind finding successful keywords:

When you become good enough at finding profitable keywords, you will understand that these tools are really optional to use and that in reality, your imagination is the BEST keyword finder out there.

However, these tools come into play when you need to: 

  • Find out how many people look for your keyword/s. 
  • What the real competition numbers are.
  • Giving you additional ideas. 
  • Filter out which of the ideas match with a keyword that gets searches and can thus be profitable.

To do all of that, you really don’t need the fanciest, most expensive tool out there to get GREAT results. In my experience these things actually end up doing quite the opposite. With Jaaxy, I have seen some incredible results through maximum simplicity, many times.

While everything I write here is my opinion, that opinion is based on many years of trial-and-error research, testing out different tools, actually making money from the results I’ve gotten with Jaaxy and learning from success & failure and what I can say is that in this business, simplicity is key and in my honest opinion Jaaxy is the best out there.

My final thoughts:

Out of the different options I have used over the years, this one has been and still is the most consistent in terms of what works, what provides me with good data that I can actually do something with and profit off and using it is very easy. I very much love this program and the people who made it.

  1. Vitaliy,

    I use Jaxxy for my keyword research. I also use it to see if the post is ranked in Google. This lets me know what keywords are actually working. 

    I am just getting used to the new Jaxxy as the changes made some things look different.

    I did like the color code on KQI, now you have to just look for the ones that say great, I have not used any that are normal yet.

    For those who just use the WA tool, the Jaxxy tool has a lot more options and gives you a better idea of where your keywords ranked after you have applied them to your content.

    I have never used Jaxxy on my phone, I think I will give it a try when I am out sometime. Does all of the functions, and works the same as the laptop side.

  2. I have used Jaaxy just for the 30 search trial but have not returned to it since. I liked it for what it was but was not sure if I felt like paying for that service when I had access to the WA keyword tool for free. Although I do see that Jaaxy has more benefits like insights on competition, I am currently not sure about it yet. My question is, how would you say this tool compares to WA’s keyword tool? Would you recommend I switch to this one for better results or is WA’s tool good enough?

    • Hi Arie, anyone who uses both WA and Jaaxy has this same question, so the short answer is that the only area where they are nearly identical is on the actual keyword searches, meaning they’ll give you pretty much the same information to go by. 

      Everything else you mentioned in terms of bonuses and extra stuff, Jaaxy provides and WA’s keyword tool does not. Since the people who made WA own both the WA keyword tool and Jaaxy, they are making changes right now from what I know to phase out the WA tool and make Jaaxy the primary one.

  3. As a Jaaxy user myself, I am in total agreement with your article. I agree that the $60 option is a bit much, but it might be good if you’re into purchasing and selling domains, which Jaaxy can help out with as well.

    One thing I really like is the green / yellow / red indicator for each keyword. Talk about simple! It really shows you at a glance the overall quality of your potential keywords.

    • Agreed Andy! I normally don’t look at the colors, but for beginners, this will be a good way to filter out their searches.

  4. Thanks for this review! I have been looking for an awesome keyword tool for my website, for some time already, I came across a few and I tried them. But I wanted to find more keyword tools because there might be better services out there. You seem to like Jaaxy a lot. After my trial for Jaaxy is over, how much must I pay for Jaaxy.

    • Right now, there is an expiration period where the $19/month will no longer be available, it’ll bump up to $60. I would recommend you lock yourself into the $19 option while it’s available. I currently use the $19 myself.
