For a normal google user, Google is just a way to find the answers of their queries. Mostly they insert their queries in search bar and search for what they want. But for bloggers or content writers, it’s not just a search engine, it’s more than a search engine, a powerful tool which helps us to win the competition.

Now, let’s see How to Use those free Keyword Difficulty tool to analyse the difficulty of a keyword. And how hard is it to rank for.

Using Google Keyword Planner, I’m using a dummy keyword which seems to have fair number of good search amount, with low competition and good CPC as well. For your information, when Google Keyword Planner gives you a Low competition keyword itt means google is regarding people for advertising that keyword.

The keyword I’m using is ‘protein rich food’ which has a fair amount of 8,100 monthly search, Low Competition and CPC for $3.12.

Open up your Chrome Browser in Incognito Mode(Ctrl+Shift+N) and go to Google. Here, Incognito mode is very useful as it’ll avoid showing personalized result like News, Images, Youtube Videos, Ads and so on which Google displays after collecting our search data and preferences. Then open up Excel or Spreadsheet with five columns as Keyword, Total Results, Results with allinurl, Results with allintitle and lastly Results with allintext.

I’ll explain what these terms mean just as we move on.

After this, conduct a normal research in the keyword ‘Protein Rich Foods’ and fill total returned result under ‘Total Results’.

Now the first column is filled, and it’s turn to fill up the other columns using special operators to extract the best results out of google to analyse the keyword difficulty. Special operators to be used are:
  • allinurl – Displays all results with keyword appearing in URL.
  • allintitle – Displays all results with keyword appearing in Title.
  • allintext – Displays all results with keyword appearing inside the article.

Conduct a search in Google using these operators as shown below:

• ‘allinurl: protein rich foods’, note the number of results containing ‘protein rich foods’ in URL and enter in into the spreadsheet under ‘Results with allinurl’ column.

• ‘allintitle: protein rich foods’, note the number of results containing ‘protein rich foods’ in Title and enter it into the spreadsheet under ‘Results with allintitle’ column.

• ‘allintext: protein rich foods’, note the number of results containing ‘protein rich foods’ inside article and enter it into the spreadsheet under ‘Results with allintext’ column.

Finally, fill up your observed data as shown in the picture below:

I’ve shown only one keyword research technique. Find similar keywords and search them  just like this keyword. You can do the same with your sub-keyword and LSI keywords.

No it’s time to know the reason behind these data collection:

According to my experience, keywords with than or nearby ‘Total Results’ of 1,000,000 has good possibility for ranking on the 1st Page.

If ‘Results with allinurl’ and ‘Results with allintitle’ are less than or nearby 1000 then you have high chances of ranking on the 1st page with a 2000+ words in-depth blog post, proper image optimization, High Flesch Reading Score, Quick Load Speed, Good Social Shares, Efficient Inter Linking and several high DA, PA Backlinks.

I’d suggest to not try for a keyword where ‘Results with allintext’ is 50% more than the ‘Total Results’. In our case the percentage is 460%, so it’s better to avoid working on this keyword.
