Who is Neil Patel?
Neil Patel is an extremely successful blogger, website developer, podcaster, and blogging coach. President Obama gave Neil Patel an award for helping bloggers.
Patel ran blogging tips websites like Crazy Egg and Quicksprout. He no longer owns these domains. Today he runs NeilPatel.com. He also developed the Hello Bar.
According to reports, Patel is worth somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 million dollars.
Patel took over Ubersuggest in 2018 and has been improving this free SEO tool ever since.
How to Use the Ubersuggest Keyword Tool
Enter the keyword you’re considering using in the search bar.
Let’s use this post as an example.
I’ve written about Ubersuggest twice. It’s important not to use the same focus keywords as before. Since I’ve already used “Ubersuggest” and “Ubersuggest” Keyword Research Tool, I needed to find a new focus keyword. Otherwise, it would be as if I am competing against myself for readers interested in my keyword at Google.
According to Patel’s tool, there are at least 170 searches for my focus keyword, Ubersuggest io, per month. Also, the tool calls the SEO Difficulty “Easy.” The best part: Ubersuggest io says there’s an 81% chance of my ranking in the Top 20 for this term.
Suppose you need tags or want to see options for focus SEO keywords.
This is your Ubersuggest dashboard. If you want to see keyword options, click “Keyword Ideas.”
These are the Top 11 for the keyword term Ubersuggest. Let’s do some competitive analysis. Can I beat the competition? I’m on the list at #10. I have a Domain Score of 25. Can I beat any in the Top 10 which would put this new post on Google’s page 1? Yes. There are some with a DS lower than 25. Do you see how we analyze the competitors? Patel’s tool, Ubersuggest io, makes it easy.
How to Use the Ubersuggest io Traffic Analyzer
The traffic analyzer tool offers an overview and an analysis of top pages and keywords.
Go to Ubersuggest.com. Click Traffic Analyzer Overview. Enter the domain name in the URL.
Look what happens what I enter Neil Patel’s domain name, NeilPatel.com, in the search bar.
The Traffic Analyzer gives an overview of Patel’s blog: His Organic Keyword, Organic Traffic, Domain Score, Backlinks, and Referring Domains. The tool also shares his organic traffic value.
Today, SEO tools exist which can tell you the amount of readership. Large search volume isn’t enough. You also have to consider the difficulty of competition.
Your ability to use Ubersuggest to conduct competitive analysis is a relatively new feature of Ubersuggest.
If you click Top Pages, you will see the estimated number of visits your top posts
If you click the View All button, you’ll see all the keywords people typed into Google to bring people to your site.
Have you heard if you update a post, you get fresh traffic since Google likes updated posts? You can update your posts with these keyword tags.
If you click Keywords, you’ll get a list of the top keywords people use to find your site each month. Also, you’ll find your position in Google’s Search Engine Results Pages for those terms.
Once again, since Google likes updated content, you can add these keywords as tags you didn’t use when you originally published your post the first time.
