Keyword Research for SEO 125 Comments
Keyword Research for SEO

This post is about keyword research for SEO. Whether doing affiliate marketing, adsense, ecommerce, it really doesn’t matter, choosing the right keywords is vital.

To help you with this process, I’m about to tell you about aย  new tool that I’ve recently started using called AHref’s. This tool is very impressive and it’s only in Beta version too.

The thing I like about this thing, is that it shows you the anchor text of the backlinks that websites have, AND it’s super fast, the fastest I’ve ever come across. The reason knowing the anchor of the backlinks of a site is so helpful, is because you can get a much clearer picture of what that webpage is really targeting.

The best way to demonstrate how I use this tool when doing keyword research for SEO is with an example.

Let’s say I go through the Google keyword tool, and I’m looking for keyword in the acne niche. Once I find potential keywords, I need to then analyze these to see how competitive they are. So carrying on with the example, if I’m looking at the phrase “vitamins for acne” the site in position 1 in Google is this one:

Now if I was to use a backlink checking tool like SEO Quake (see image below) you can see that the URL has 500 backlinks. However what I cannot tell from this number, is what the anchor text of these backlinks are. If I know the anchor of these links, I can work out if this phrase of “vitamins for acne” is their primary agenda for this page or not.


This is where comes in. There is a paid and a free version of this tool, however I think the paid version is the one that allows you to see anchor text. When I placed this URL, it allows you to plugin exact URL’s not just the home page, ahrefs shows me the anchor text count in decending order for the page.

As you can see in the image above, the top anchor for the links coming into this page are infact “vitamins for acne”, however only 302 of them are this exact phrase, so not all 500 as we might have first thought if just looking at SEO Quake.

Now this is still pretty competitive, and not a keyword I would recommend targeting, as the search volume is not that high. However what you’ll often find when using this tool, is that pages ranking at the top of Google often are not even targeting the keyword phrase they are ranking for. When you look at the results, you’ll see the phrase way down the list, sometimes not even in the first 20. What this tells us is that that particular phrase is not their priority for the page, which makes them less difficult to outrank.

One thing to keep in mind is that if the sites at the top are hard core authority sites, like PR 6+, then be careful, because even if they are not trying to rank for a phrase but Google is giving it to them anyway, it is usually because of their authority on the general topic and they still can be hard to beat.

I am not an affiiate for this tool either, I just wanted to share something cool I am doing that I hope will help you also.

    Thanks Matt for the expert advice and tips. Just getting started with this IM endeavor and I find it very helpful when I can get insight from those that “know the ropes”.

    Wow that is excellent it will be really easy to outrank your competitors with that tool A hrefs. I quite agree that we need to be careful when it comes to competing with authority sites, like PR 6+that is just hard word competing with authority sites better go for the low hanging fruits Thanks once again .Matt looking forward to test the tool.Cheers!

    Nice post Matt. I picked up ahrefs a short bit ago and taking a test ride for a month for just under $12. They have a price program ranging from Free to $99 per month. I also see ahrefs as an excellent tool for building authority sites. Knowing how your competition is structuring their sites can easily get you there weeks and months sooner when chasing the big guys.

  6. August 20, 2011 at 9:44 am | Permalink

    Matt, I use and it gives me tons of backlinks and anchor text for my competitors. What do you think of this tool instead of ahrefs that you mention?

    Matt Carter Reply:

    I find Ahrefs is the fastest tool for doing this, and I have tried a lot of them, but if you prefer another, then by all means use what works for you!



    Ice Watches Reply:

    The other thing that should be pointed out Matt is the fact that Open site explorer’s paid version is $99 where as Ahrefs paid version starts at $11.99 and both have a free version.

    Thanks for the great blog using a tool like this certainly opens up more opportunities.

    Hi Matt,
    Previously I have tended to stay away from sites with as many as 5oo backlinks, they were just too hard to outperform, especially if they were above a PR3 rank. So the tool you suggest is really good, and as you point out really fast.
    So if a site with 500 backlinks shows 450 of them are off topic it may not be so hard to beat to the top ..
    Wahooooo thats great Matt.thanks heaps
    regards Jeff

    Matt, an excellent keyword tool to find anchor keywords. I will try this shortly. I might find it useful as I am having a couple of websites difficult to rank and I can now find out the competing website’s anchor keywords that they are ranking for and hopefully tweak my website.

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks heaps for all your help! I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled upon your program and the very generous free info you provide, especially as there seems to be an overwhelming presence of fake people on the net. A quick question if you will, it may be stupid so please forgive me – with the 500 links you refer to in the above article, why do you site yahoo links instead of google?


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Yahoo gives a better indication of overall links, although it is not perfect either, but we just have to do the best we can

    All the best

    Until this latest post of yours, I was unaware how important page rank was of the actual backlinks to these sites.

    Really like the tool – but here is my question.

    It seems to me that SEO Quake is almost useless. The number of links it show has no correlation as to the real number of links – as shown on ahref or other backlink analysis tools.

    Is this true for you too – that SEO Quake is WAY off?

    Matt Carter Reply:

    I don’t think any tool is that accurate with the number of links, probably majestic SEO is the best at the moment, where Market Samurai gets its data, but ahrefs is building its own, so I think you will see ahrefs do really well over the next few months. And ahrefs is the best for anchor at the moment already and its only in beta still!

    Kind regards

    Just trying this Ahrefs tool. Could you explain what the ‘removed’ backlinks are in the graph it shows for External Backlinks and why are backlinks deleted? I thought backlinks stayed so why are some deleted?

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Briluki

    Backlinks can easily get deleted. If a webmasters decided they don’t want your link on their site anymore they can remove it.

    Although I have built websites in the past, I’m pretty new at actually trying to market something via the internet. I certainly have not spent much time trying to get top rankings. Now, as I turn my attention to marketing, I can see the value of a powerful keyword research tool. You have shown how an analysis of a competing website’s backlinks could pay dividends in terms of rankings and sales. Thanks.

  53. August 21, 2011 at 2:56 am | Permalink

    Mat I agree with your comment regarding Market Samurai it has become slow and clunky. I can remember when I could talk to a customer on the phone and be running stats as we talked. No more unfortunately.

    But the wealth of other information it gives in the research is really important. I can also determine from the link analysis whether the top results have been achieved by accident or is there a definite SEO plan at work. That gives me more of an idea of what I’m competing against.

    I haven’t tried this href tool at all but I would question the value of having to open separate tools to get the info you want rather than have it all in one. Even if it is fast.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Well you don’t have to use it, but I have used every tool out there, and I can tell you from experience that this thing is fast and I way prefer it to MArket Samurai and anything else I know of

It is also amazing the amount of information you find when you read the comments from other people. Several had mentioned Market Samurai of which you gave your opinion as to how well it does or does not work.

    Hi Matt, thanks for sharing this, this is great information. However I’m confused. There are 3 main competitors to a niche I’m working on and they all rank on page one for the keywords I’m trying to target. But only one of them has any external backlinks using the ahrefs tool (208) how do the other two rank on page one with no backlinks?


    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi Elaine

    With ahrefs don’t look at the numbers, more like at the priority of the anchor text. Also I would need to see the keyword to really know, but one thing to keep in mind is that if a domain has done a 301 redirect to the domain rankings now, you won’t be able to see any of the backlinks.

    Kind regards

    Hi Matt.
    Several people including your good self have made reference to SEO quake in this thread but I’ve noticed that it no longer works with the latest firefox browser. However. SEO book still seems to work which is also a freebie for anyone experiencing the same issue with SEO quake and actually provides more data.
    I haven’t looked at ahref’s yet but I agree with you and others on the slow decline of Market Samurai which was my main stay for keyword research, but alas seems to be dying which is pity considering all the work the MS people have put into it over the years.

    This is great Matt,

    This is very like Majestic SEO, but looks so much more affordable and maybe easier to get the data in a usable format. I’ll be seriously looking at this to save some money over Majestic SEO.

    Market Samurai is supposed to do get the anchor text, but for this part of MS I’m sure they still use Yahoo explorer to get this data, which donโ€™t feel is particularly accurate compared to others. They use majestic SEO for the number of backlinks only.

    Thanks again Matt

    Hi Matt ,
    Thanks for this info . You probably know Market Samurai can do the same thing and I was wondering if this is not a better deal in the long run + you get the extra Samurai features ? I tend to keep my marketing costs as low as possible at all times but if you plan to do lots of analyses on websites and backlinks then I think Market Samurai is worth the extra buck or am I missing something ?

    thanks matt for your tips n adventoris.
    I very much agree with what you write is the most important part of online business is marketing seo with keyword selection is very appropriate, as we have a nice house but the people did not know we’re a nice house, that’s what happens with an online business today.

    Great tool. the free version also give you anchor text. I think that for test it is a great option. Howeber, if you work in SEO, you need more number of results that the free verssion show you.

    Really, I believe that the price is very competitive.

    Thanks for sharing Matts

    Hi Matt,

    I have to agree with some of the other comments, as a user of Market Samurai and with that I have access to Majestic SEO reports I see very similiar benefits without having to pay additional monthlu fees.

    However I will check “ahref ” out and open their free account to see if their reports are better.

    Wow thank you so much for such a useful info. I signed up and tested it. For me it’s now gonna replace yahoo site explorer and MS. I agree MS is so sloooow. Just getting it started takes ages!

    Thank you so much. I need to check your blog more often. You really give free quality info.
