    all those tools work good but they are just the first step,and you will need to check the competition manually afterwards to make sure that the keyword is good

    I already own and use Ahrefs, Secockpit and KWFinder, but I recently tried Keyword Revealer and I think this last one is better than other the others about to calculate (more and less, not exactly of course) the keyword difficulty. I tested Keyword Revealer with the websites I builded, so I exactly know if they were easy or hard to rank

    But some keywords have shows good number of searches on ahrefs and kwfinder but 0 on semrush. You think semrush is correct? I'm just confused , don't wanna rank the wrong kw

    About the number of searches, it can vary from a tool to another, usually I use at least 3 tools and I take as real the numbers shown on most tools.
    Usually Keyword Revealer and KWFinder shown an exact number of searches (the same number as google adwords tool in the past), but ahrefs and secockpit often shown a wrong searches number.
    Anyway the difference is not very high, so I think it's not so important, better to take care of the keyword difficulty

    I use Ahrefs, Semrush and Keysearch, & sometimes Moz mainly, but have access to others too.

    With time you'll get a hand of which keywords are the really good ones, but don't just rely on 1 or 2 tools.

    According to your experience, what will be the main things to look at in your competitors analysis on a keyword ?

    Kwfinder is fastest and have same results with keyword revelear but keyword revelear has title description h1 and tags in results which makes it better but it works very slow sometimes.

    semrush is garbage
    revealer's numbers are too low
    kwfinder seems to be most accurate

    Hear good things about ahrefs, only use SemRush and a couple of lesser-known ones.

    I look at all of them though to get moreso a "Range" and narrow down the accuracy.

    Have to agree that Keyword revealer seems to be really slow to fetch data, troublesome if you have many, but overall it's good

    Kwfinder is more reliable one for research keywords difficulty :)

    KR is the best for me, but their pricing is way too expensive. At least for me.
