The Ahrefs keyword explorer is great for keyword research. Since ahref’s link database is arguably the largest, they have what I consider the most accurate keyword difficulty rating of all the tools. One of the best features of this keyword research tool is that it will tell you approximately how many links you’ll need directly to a page to rank for more keywords.
This is another very popular tool but the difference here is you can actually get keywords for other major search engines like YouTube, Amazon and Ebay.
