Blogging and Vlogging

Best keyword research tools for YouTube: Blogging and Vlogging is something similar and dissimilar to each other Ask me How? It’s similar as it both provides information and knowledge we search for some queries and we get a result isn’t

And its dissimilar as because the form of contents comes in different ways what I mean to say is we get content in the form of articles in blogging and we get content in the form of videos in vlogging but both provide information.

Let say we have searched “ what is Digital Marketing “ in Google and same in YouTube as well so we will get tones of result in the search result but do you know the search volume, search result competition, keyword bidding  is different in both the platforms and here is why the Need for keyword planner for YouTube came into existence.

You know what initially when I was new to the world of blogging I didn’t new the difference of both and I used to use keywords from Google keyword planner in my YouTube Video and ultimately I didn’t get any result you can find my YouTube channel here.

I am using Tubebuddy for the last 7-8 months and I am really happy with their insights data , Tubebuddy is one of my favorite and best tool . I will not say that if you use tubebuddy your videos will fly high in the sky but definitely you can get some helping hands from tubebuddy to rank your videos higher .

Note: To be very frank and based on my experience keyword research tool will definitely help in doing SEO for YouTube .But the real truth is there is Algorithm of YouTube which is Somehow selective bias HEHE and the reason why I am telling is until and unless your video are Unique or something you know totally different from others , video which are not there in YouTube  so you can definitely expect some return from YouTube but if video are not different not unique then you are struggle a lot .

I have seen many you tubers with great skills but you know what they struggle and I have seen many you tubers with little skills they have lakhs and millions of followers I hope you will agree.

Even let me share you a small incident before some days one of the you tuber Let say X whom I follow went live and someone asked her a question who do you follow on YouTube and she said the name let’s Say Y  and I have also searched the youtuber whom she follows i.e. Y and Guess what I have seen? You tuber Y had only 28000 Subscriber and know you tuber X who follows you tuber Y have more 1,50,000 Followers yes this happens in YouTube.

Now let me make you happy  in one sentence ((: “ Any video can go viral “

vidiq interface

I feel tubebuddy and Vidiq are similar to each other but they are you know different company . Why I am telling they are almost similar is because :

1.They are both YouTube certified

2. Tubebuddy and Vidiq are both browser extension.

3. There user interface is also almost identical to each other

Vidiq is cheaper as compared to tubebuddy what I mean to say is there prices for different plans are lower as compared to tubebuddy but you get additional feature and extra benefits in tubebuddy.

You Can See the pricing Below

Ahrefs Interface
Ahrefs Interface

It is a great platform when it comes to SEO. It doesn’t only help you with Keyword research it has different useful and instant helpful tools you can think about and of the tool which I like is the Broken Link Tab in ahrefs i will talk about this tool in details later.

you know seo is not limited to Keywords , seo is a broad factor. Seo have different elements or you can say SEO comprises of following factors


2.Long Article ( in Case of blog)

3.High Quality content

4.Market Trends

5.Engagement (Time)

6.Location based keywords

7.Local Business


9. On page SEO

10. Off page SEO

Now you might me thinking why I am telling the web search seo factors ? And the reason is you know ahrefs had both keyword planners for web search as well as For YouTube Search as well.

And Ranking of YouTube Video Depends on :

1.Watch Time

2.Keywords and proper Tags


4.Luck ( This Is not official ) ((:

What can you do with this tool?

Tools and Features

  1. Competitive analysis

2.Keyword Research

3.Backlink research

4.Content research

5.Rank tracking

6.Web monitoring

The Things which I like about ahrefs is they have detailed information about a particular topic or say keyword What I mean to say is let say you have searched for What is PPC and you will get the result in terms of

  1. Ranking
  2. How Many social share the article got
  3. Domain Rating and referring domain
  4. Organic traffic and many more.

And their biggest drawback of ahrefs is they don’t have any test drive ((:  Which means they don’t have any trial version or free version.T he only thing they provide is a 7-days trial version with 7 $. If you want there 7 day trial version you have to pay 7 dollar.

Ahrefs Trial Version
Ahrefs Trial Version

It should have a free trial version which most of the platform gives and moreover their regular plans and pricing is very costly as well which is very difficult for a newbie to purchase their plans. Sad )): Worried )): Don’t Be I have good news for you but till then you have to wait for a month.
