    I would not put them that low but I would agree that no matter what you use you have to do a manual review after using any tool.

    I use kwfinder but under 20 difficulty is easy, anything above 20 is gonna be more of a challenge.

    Lol ok yeah maybe I was a little harsh. I think they can give you a very rough idea but A none of them have a websites/pages full backlink profile and B they can't understand intent like Google can now. For example Google treats queries such as "advantages to health insurance" very similarly to "do I need health insurance?". Where as text analysis from most keyword difficulty tools would treat them as very different queries if that makes sense :)

    Everyone else already said this, but the best tool is your head. Keyword difficulty estimating tools are useful for narrowing down giant lists of keywords, but are flawed. You will often see very difficult keywords rated as very easy and very easy keywords rated as very difficult.

    Look up potential keywords in Google. Are the top results relevant, quality results that people have clearly put effort into? It's probably a hard keyword. Are the top results mostly irrelevant or low quality? It's probably an easy keyword.

    OP, I find SEMrush helpful. KWfinder is good too. But you're the only one who can assess while using them. Figure out which tool works best for you.
