Keyword Difficulty

First of all, filter the downloaded keywords based on keyword difficulty of count less than 50. Keyword Difficulty above 50 is a little bit harder to rank. There Keyword Difficulty is calculated based on several factors such as competitors ranking, paid traffic, monthly search, etc.

Monthly Search Volume

After performing the Keyword Difficulty process, filter the remaining keywords list with a monthly search volume of at least 1000. If you filter lower than 1000 volumes, then the chance of getting traffic becomes very low. 

Google Trends

You will see Google Trends for every keyword on their dashboard itself, so choose the keywords which have good trends.


Keyword Finder will show both CPC and PPC for each keyword, so select keyword which has low PPC to avoid paid competitors.

Google SERP Results

You don’t need to search your keyword on Google to get the SERP page. Instead Keyword Finder itself shows the SERP page for every keyword on their dashboard. Check the top 10 results for your keyword by comparing the Referring Domains, Domain Authority, Page Authority, and quality score of competitor websites.

Repeat the same until you get the low competitive keyword for your SEO project. 

If you are not getting a top low competitive keyword, then change your niche and put the new keyword on the search box so you will get new keyword ideas for your project.

Competitor’s Domain Rating, Domain Authority, Page Authority, Referring domains, Backlinks are the most crucial factor to consider while choosing a money keyword.
