    I've checked some of them and have a bit of experience. For me, SEMrush is the absolute best.

    This tool is gonna let you analyze the keywords of all the competitors of your SERP.

    KWfinder is also great for keyword research.

    if you are new to seo, just go for the keyword that no one going after.

    the very low competition keyword that have about 500 global search per month, but with high CPC
