With the tremendous increase in the consumption of video content in the last few years, it is no wonder that YouTube is the second most widely used search engine on the planet.
With increased opportunities comes a much higher level of competition when it comes to video content. There has been a phenomenal rise in the quality and the amount of content, particularly on YouTube.
Therefore, if you need to stand out from the crowd in your niche, it is absolutely vital that you are knowledgable and skillful and your video content is really top-notch.
There are many software tools that can help you to achieve it for various different use cases. KeywordSearch is a tool that promises to assist you in keyword research for your videos so that you come up with content that will end up in a good number of targeted views.
Is it really good enough to help you improve your channel's metrics? Let's find out in this review.
Dashboard, User Interface, and Features
Once the initial sign-up is done, there is a very short onboarding where you are asked about what type of user you are to assist in a more personalized experience.
Once that is completed, you are welcomed to the main dashboard where you can enter your primary keyword to fetch the data.
By default, the search setting is mapped to the United States and English, but you can change it before running the search if you would like to.
You can get all the details on the related keywords to your main keyword, the average search volume of each keyword, the recent trend, etc.
If you select any specific keyword, the row expands to show a lot more details including the Ads that are run for that keyword, the YouTube videos for it that rank & the number of views for each video, related YouTube channels, and similar keywords, etc.
You can save a list of selected keywords in a separate collection to keep everything organized and for you to search easily for future reference.
Apart from searching for keywords, it is also possible to do a general search on the YouTube channels related to any specific keyword.
You will see the list of channels along with the videos they rank highly and the keywords their videos are optimized for.
This is a fantastic feature to find many lesser-known YouTube channels that are doing well for your primary keyword, particularly if the search volume is quite low.
There is also a huge list of targeted audiences available to have a look at and get an idea of whom you should target for your specific product or service.
This could be extremely useful for someone who is very new to setting up YouTube Ads and not sure about the right type of audience to target.
The Ad Spy is another interesting and very useful feature that gives a detailed analysis of the Ads that are run for any specific keyword.
You get all the best performing Ads for that keyword with the number of views spread across various timelines. Also, if the ad is still live, you can view the video and also the landing page that the ad leads to.
On the flip side, you can see the best-performing ads for any general category and see the exact keywords they are targeting to get a such high number of views.
There are two paid plans with the base plan costing $97 per month that allows for only keyword search and the higher plan costing $147 per month that lets you do ad spying in addition to keyword & channel research.
If you are a business or an agency that doesn't do YouTube Ads, then the base plan would suffice your needs.
To wrap up, if you are looking for an easy-to-use tool that will help you to grow your YouTube channel, KeywordSearch is certainly a good choice for that.
Of course, the quality of your content determines a lot of your channel's growth, but KeywordSeach will help you in that process and show you many hidden details which might be extremely difficult if done manually.
