    Hi, I'm looking for a reliable tool or website to check keyword ranking difficulty on google.
    I've been using traffic travis and other online services, but results are sometimes different.
    What do you guys use to see how difficult a keyword is to rank on google? thanks

    Most commonly these tools analyse the top 10 results for the keywords and based on the metrics of the top 10 resulting pages it will say how difficulty is it. As far i tested, traffic travis is good.

    Tbh, i found none to be really correct nor effective.

    I use gkp + Sb + Market samurai free version + ahrefs. Nothing can beat that for now.

    This question is asked every few days so try searching and you will find plenty of results :)
    I like ultimate niche finder, although I find it crashes a lot, needs private proxies and glitches. I like being able to drop in a term and expand it, chose from the list, expand again and again, until I have a few thousand then filter stuff out. works for me. It's difficulty rating can be set to rate 1000-2000 keywords at a time. I read somewhere it is working on getting into top 3. It also glitches sometimes, and you would want to double check manually before doing anything but it is good for a quick idea of a lot of keywords. I also use keyword revealer to double check or if I only want to quickly look at 1 or 2 keywords. It doesn't do mass evaluations. It's rating is for top 10 and its score is an average of those top 10 so can be skewed. It displays those top 10 results so you can evaluate as well. Having used it for a couple of months I am now getting to the point where I can see the score and have an idea of how hard it would be for me.
