Using the Keywords Everywhere Extension for Google

As you use Google’s search engine, you can immediately see all the keyword level data associated with your query.

For example, if your keyword is ‘how to be consistent’. You can immediately see all relevant SEO data including:

1.     Main Query’s Keyword Level Data

Straight off the bat, you can see the keyword level data of the main query. The SEO data here is pulled from Google Keywords Planner.

2.   Query Suggestions’ Keyword Data

Our tool also shows the SEO data of the other related query suggestions.

3. Search Results SEO Data

Keywords Everywhere shows the link metrics from Moz as well, letting you in on the ranking websites’ domain authority, backlinks, search traffic, and more.

4. Main Keyword’s SEO Difficulty

In one of the first main widgets, you can find the main query’s SEO difficulty whether on-page or off-page.

4. Search Volume Trend

You can see the search volume trend over the past week, month, year, or even the all-time trend– as far back as 2004.

5. Related Keywords

This is a great widget for finding other related keywords and comparing their volume, CPC, etc. Notice how there are star icons next to each keyword.

You can click that to add certain keywords to your list of Favorites, which is a great way to document and organize your keyword discoveries.

6. People Also Search For Widget

This is another great widget you can look into to find more keyword opportunities and add more context to your content.

7. Long-tail Keywords

Here goes all the specific keywords with lower search volume but potentially lower competition as well. Some marketers intentionally target low search volume keywords to rank faster, convert better, and slowly but surely build authority.

How to Customize Your Keyword Research Process Using Keywords Everywhere

Keywords Everywhere does feed a lot of keyword insights, but you can also adjust the SEO data you can see on display to your liking. It’s important that you do so not only to optimize your keyword research process but to also make it efficient and cost-effective.

Note: Every single keyword level data displayed by the tool costs 1 credit. For example, the section below accounts for 8 credits.

Whether or not you’re actively doing keyword research, for as long as the extension is toggled on, every keyword level data displayed will cost credits. Thus, if you’re not officially working, you may deactivate the extension by toggling it off:

If you want to further save on credits, you can also just limit the keyword level data on display and just show the ones that you need. To do that, just click “Settings” in the section above.

You’ll be redirected to the same page where you validated your API Key. As you scroll down on that page, there are a lot of features you can calibrate to your liking. Let’s cover every section from that page.

1. API Settings

From here, you can open the dropdown menus above to change the ‘Country’ and ‘Currency’.

If you want to pull keywords from specific countries or change the currency on display for the Cost Per Click data, you can make the necessary changes in this section.

2. Data Source

You can either source Data from Google Keyword Planner only or a mix of both Google Keyword Planner and Clickstream data.

3. Enable/Disable Metrics

You can limit the insights you can see per widget by toggling on only the metrics you want to display.

For example, if you only need to see the Volume and cost per click, you can toggle on just those two and toggle off the rest. After a quick refresh, your widgets and keyword level data will update accordingly.

For example:

4. Metrics Highlighting

Using highlights is also a great way to optimize your keyword research process via Keywords Everywhere.

Especially if there are very specific metrics you’re looking for, you can toggle on and set the metrics you want to highlight and also choose the highlight color you want to pop.

After refreshing the SERPs, you can immediately see the highlighted keywords that match your settings, making keyword research extra convenient.

5. Supported Websites

As long as the Keywords Everywhere extension is toggled on, our tool will generate insights whenever you browse any of the platforms listed below.

However, if you don’t need keyword data on all of these platforms, you can just enable the ones you need and disable the rest. This is one way you can save on Keywords Everywhere credits.

6. Credit Usage for Widgets

You can choose which widgets you want to activate as well. For example, if you don’t really need the Trends widget, you can choose to toggle it off.

You can still see the widget, but it will no longer fetch the search volume and other metrics, so credits will no longer be used up.

7. Miscellaneous Settings

There are more settings you can modify to refine and personalize your keyword research and make credits usage more efficient. Just use the features that make sense for you.

General Keyword Research Tips

Take note that keyword research is more than just collecting terms and phrases. Don’t forget the overarching goal of content creation– creating content that solves a deeper problem.

The force behind every keyword is user intent. You can use keyword research as a tool to better understand the goal of the users. Write content based on your understanding of their pain points or what they’re looking to achieve.

Your success in content marketing is based on how you’ve helped readers or viewers become successful.

With that in mind, research and implement keywords sincerely and strategically. Follow the general keyword research tips below for a more thorough coverage:

1. Use the same language as your audience speaks

With the rise of voice search, you need to hone in on using natural language as that’s becoming the standard in search.

2. Stop overusing exact match keywords

Keyword match types still matter, but don’t cram awkward phrases for the sake of exact matching because Google has gotten so much better at understanding context.

For example, if there’s a keyword “ web design company Texas”, go ahead and add that missing “in”.

3. Embrace long-tail keywords

Keywords Everywhere feeds a whole list of long-tail keywords you can maximize. Use that to your advantage.

Some marketers turn away from long-tail/ LSI keywords that have a lower search volume, but that essentially means low competition.

Also, long-tail keywords usually have stronger transactional intent, which means hot SEO leads.

4. Use various contextual keywords

You don’t have to limit the target keywords per post. Feel free to use as many contextual keywords as you can based on the data from Keywords Everywhere. That allows you to more effectively cover the topic’s depth and breadth.

Nuanced context is increasingly becoming a signal of rich and valuable content, in the eyes of both users and search engines.

5. Avoid Keyword Stuffing

Again, focus on natural language use and don’t overload your content with keywords. The main priority is still to successfully satisfy the user’s query in a seamless and engaging way.


Keyword research is and will always be an indispensable aspect of content creation, SEO, and digital marketing. And with our keyword research tool, you can now easily analyze your competition and discover high-quality keywords you’ve never thought of before.

Up your keyword research game with Keywords Everywhere and make the process so much easier and literally more accessible.
