Authoritas (formerly Analytics SEO)

This tool is particularly well suited to SEO teams that don't require a great deal of precision or specialization. For example, this tool provides a very user-friendly way to do keyword research, but might not be well suited to someone that needs exact search volumes or keyword difficulties. The tool offers a great bang for your buck, but isn't the most capable tool out there. Still great!

Google Trends

Google Trends is appropriate in so many scenarios, but I definitely suggest it for content ideas and inspiration. Many people utilize it after already writing their content to add in popular phrases or words, but that is not enough. The platform should be used prior and during the content creation process so that you can use the data to see what your audience/customers are interested in at the moment and create the content based on their interests. It can help, but I find it much less appropriate to use it after your article, eBook, etc. is already written. Maximize on this useful tool by ensuring the topic you're writing about is relevant in the first place before simply adding in popular keywords. An article that's written based on what's trending will be far more successful than an article that solely has popular phrases added to it.

  • Google Trends allows me to identify and qualify search terms that my client's need to optimize their websites and social media content for.
  • Google Trends shows me what people are talking about in a specific location over a specific period of time. This is a great way to know what I should be posting on social media.

Google Trends

  • Top charts: would be nice to include top charts for the current month.
  • Explainers: would be good to have some information buttons next to graphics and charts to show in depth what criteria go into making those charts.
  • More images: would be interesting to see trending image searches.

Google Trends is very easy to use. you just search for a certain keyword or phrase, and it tells you how often that keyword or phrase is searched, where in the world it is searched, and over the last decade, how often it is per year.

I haven't needed to use any support for Google Trends. However, I've used Google's support in general and it's a hit or miss. Usually, there's a long wait or they don't understand my problem. They are the only ones that can help, so sometimes I feel stuck. They prioritize paying customers for sure.

Alternatives Considered

Authoritas (formerly Analytics SEO)

If price isn't a factor, Analytics SEO doesn't stack up very well to competitors like Majestic, Moz, and SEMRush. If we consider pricing, however, I would say that this tool is one of the best, if not the very best, out there. This tool is extremely powerful for how much it costs.
Nathan Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Trends

I like using Google Trends because it gives you a clear visual of seasonal trends and compares multiple queries at once. However, I do prefer using other systems like SEMRush and Ahrefs because they are more detailed in the information they give you regarding your website and how specific keywords about the website in question.
