Yea, title pretty much says it all.
Just looking for a localized (city) kw tool.
Have you looked at Places Scout? Expensive, but a great lead generator.
Unless I misunderstand what you are looking for, you can just use any keyword tool that you would use for typical research. For instance the Google keyword tool will give you information on localized search terms. All you have to do is include the city name in the query.
You may be able to find some other tips here,
Hope that helps,
Places scout is the best
place scout is really the best
When looking at a local market I want to compete in, I often look at the competition. Look for someone who is either clearly doing SEO, or has a very solid grasp on the market. Then I'll use a tool like Ahrefs, and see what keywords are currently bringing them in traffic. (They're getting rid of that tool in a few weeks, so I'll have to find another).
I've found reverse engineering the competitors holds on the market is a great strategy to either use or build off of.
And then of course, as people mentioned you can use the Google Keyword Tool. On the left column, just make sure you make it include the city name. If you're trying to go for multiple cities, you can enter all of them in separately and it will show any of the matches in the results. It doesn't help with showing you additional locations, but if you generally know the list of places; it should speed things up a decent amount.
Hope that helps. ~englandrm
Great advise. I quit spending money on expensive tools years ago. Look at your competition to see what they are doing, then do it better. The Google keyword Tool is valuable, if you know how to use it.
I use Sem Rush for keyword research, it supports a lot of languages, but it is paid service (about 80$ per month).
