If you are wondering what’s new… well, let’s just say the changes have made keyword research much better and a lot easier. And on top of that, later in this post, I’ll even give you a sneak peek at the new changes that we are making to the extension that will be released within 30 days.
So, what’s new?
Who says keyword research should be limited to Google?
What most people don’t know is that YouTube is the second most popular search engine and has been exploding.
On top of that, Amazon is the largest e-commerce site in the world and SEOs are doing Amazon SEO and Amazon ads… so why not have access to keyword research there, too?
Now, when you go to YouTube and perform a search you’ll see data on suggested keywords as you perform a search.
And if you want more details on any given keyword you searched for, just click “view all” next to the search bar and you’ll see something like this:
It breaks down search volume over the last 12 months as well as shows you if a keyword has any seasonal trends.
You can also see how competitive a keyword is to rank for, its cost per click data, how many people even click on any of the listings, and even the age range of the people who search for that term.
Also, what’s interesting is that you can see data on whether a keyword is searched more on mobile or desktop devices and the breakdown. This is important because mobile searches tend to not convert as well… so ideally you want to go after keywords that have more desktop searches when possible.
Now on the right side of any YouTube search listings page, you will also see more keyword suggestions.
It’s pretty similar to what the extension already shows on Google… this is more so our version for YouTube.
But with Amazon, we didn’t want to impact your user experience too much, so we decided to provide keyword data in the most unobtrusive way possible…
Anytime you perform a search on Amazon, you’ll see keyword data on the suggestions.
There is also one other important change made to the extension that you may have already noticed if you use Google on a regular basis.
When you search on Google, there is now traffic estimations under each URL.
This traffic estimation is for organic search traffic and it is done on a domain level. Eventually, we will tweak it to be page-based and even show you the other keywords each page ranks for… but for now, we are providing you with organic traffic estimates for each domain.
And if you are more of a visual person, in the right-hand sidebar you can also see the traffic estimation for any result in the top 10.
So if you want to know traffic data in addition to keyword suggestions when you perform a Google search, make sure you install the Ubersuggest Chrome Extension.
But the best is still to come…
My goal is to make major releases to Ubersuggest every month if possible… every other month if all doesn’t go as planned.
The next big one is introducing competitor analysis features within the extension.
Right now if you click on the “Ubersuggest” logo within your Chrome browser you see something like this:
Now, that’s not really useful.
So, within the next 30 days when you click on the “Ubersuggest” logo within Chrome, I am thinking of showing something like this:
For any domain you’ll be able to see the following metrics:
Domain metrics – you’ll see a quick overview of each domain. From the number of organic keywords a site ranks for to their estimated organic traffic, domain score, and even number of backlinks.
Historical traffic – you’ll see an organic traffic chart of the last 6 months to any given site.
Top pages by country – want to know the most popular pages on your competitor’s site? This table will show you just that.
Top keywords by country – you’ll also be able to see the most popular keywords that drive traffic to that site.
If you already have the Ubersuggest Chrome extension installed, you may need to reinstall it because we now show you data on YouTube and Amazon. That means you’ll have to grant Ubersuggest permission to show you data on those two sites.
