Before going into the review, let me clear you few things. Mangools is the brand behind the development of KWFinder. Apart from it, there are two other tools SERPWatcher (To analyze SERP results) and SERPChecker (The rank tracker tool).

All the three tools comes under a single roof, Mangools. You can buy either Basic or Premium or Agency plan and you will get access to all the three tools.

KWFinder Review

I came across this long tail keyword research tool a few years back, and on that time, the tool did some basic keyword research, but now the growth of the tool is exceptional.


Long Tail Pro Alternatives

When I looked for some Long tail pro alternatives, I found KWFinder is best one and bought a subscription package to test its results.

Not because of its pricing, but because of its performance, I can say it's a greater alternative to Long tail pro keyword research tool.


When you open the homepage, you will get this search box. The tool claims

  • No installation needed
  • No AdWords accounts
  • Instant usage

There are three types to find long tail keywords. They are

  • Suggestions keywords
  • Auto complete keywords
  • Question type keywords

I started testing with a keyword "search engine optimization" and choose the country  United States ( you can choose any country) and finally language as English.

It is simple right? You can get a lot of keywords within seconds. Just a click, I got 10+ easy to rank keywords.

The above results are based on Suggestions keywords. The below are the results for Auto Complete and question type keywords.

If you look at the results pages, you can find various parameters by which the tool puts a value on a website.


In this review of KWFinder, I tested some random keywords to show you a demo of how this creative long tail keyword research tool works.

You can see the keyword "affordable SEO packages" values 29/100 which are not a hard keyword to rank and this is how the tool calculates difficulty value.

The parameters found in the screenshot and their explanations.

Search history for past 12 months - Find the search volume for the past 12 months, and you can rank for the keywords search volume which is improving month over month.

Google SERP - The top 10 pages are ranking for the keyword.

DA / PA - Domain Authority and Page Authority obtained from Moz.

MR & MT - MozRank & MozTrust of the URL.

Links - Number of external authority-passing links to the URL.

FaceBook and Google Plus - Social signals of the URL to determine the importance of the URL

Estimated Visits - Estimated visits per month on this SERP position.

On the left side, I got around 700 keywords for which the KWFinder shows the difficulty score based on the above parameters like ( DA/PA, MR, MT )

KWFinder Options

There is a Filter option in the keywords search results page, and you can use this one to do awesome stuff to find the most profitable keywords and you can drive millions of traffic from search engines. For Example, there is an option to include keywords of your own.

If you're running an Amazon niche site, you might come across the buyer intent keywords which is helpful to drive more sales to the niche keywords.

You can include those keywords in this "include keywords" options and tool will show the long tail low competition keywords.

I did a search with a buyer intent keyword - Cheap.

You can learn above such things from Mangools blog where they written awesome SEO guide for beginners and I bet surely you'll learn something new through those tutorials.

Now, I got two low competition keywords.

Few members requested to run some amazon niche site keywords, and here it goes.

I was going to deploy one of my website for this keyword, yet I choose the keyword to show a live demo of how the tool finds long tail keywords.

I choose the keyword "Himalayan salt lamps" and choose the buyer intent keywords "cheap." The awesome is I got three low competition keywords out of six keywords.

Remember I used only one buyer intent keyword. You can include as many buyer intent keywords like (best,cheap,affordable) and create a list of 10-15 keywords to start a perfect Amazon affiliate niche site.

If you want a long tail keyword, you enter the number of keywords to 3 -5 in the filter results option and do a search for excellent long tail keywords.

List and Export

There are two options at the bottom by which you can select a group of keywords and create a list. The list will be saved, and you can check it whenever you needed. You can find the competitiveness of the keywords after ranking your websites later.

You can choose the keywords and export it in CSV Format. There is an option to export the metrics of the keywords too. You can do it to show the keywords to your clients or share with your writers for productive works (learn more).

Import Keywords

If you have a bunch of keywords, you can import those keywords and find the difficulty of the keywords. Sometimes you need to rank for keywords based on Google autocomplete keywords.

KWFinder Support

You will get live support from the developers right from the website. You can drag and drop the chat window as per your convenience since the default right corner will hide the keywords when you're in chat.

I had few issues with the Keyword difficulty value and contacted him for possible solutions. To my surprise, he comes up with the insider reasons that caused the bug, and he promised the bug will be resolved and it was fixed within 24 hours.

KWFinder Pricing

KWFinder Pricing is simpler. There are two options either monthly or yearly.

As said earlier, you will get access to all the three tools ( KWFinder, SERPChecker and SERPWatcher)

There are three plans you can choose from

  • check
    Mangools Basic
  • check
    Mangools Premium
  • check
    Mangools Agency

The limits across each plan is highlighted.

The above pricing is for monthly payments. However, if you choose to go with yearly payment, you can get some huge savings.

As said earlier, you can get an account with any of the above three plans and get access to SERPWatcher and SERPChecker tools.


With a modern UI, supportive developers and one click to find long tail keywords, I think KWFinder is a must have tool for Internet Marketers and SEO agencies to be the best long tail keyword research in the market.

I hope this KWFinder review is live up to the expectation and if you have any questions, please let me know in comments.

  • Morten Ruus says:

    Hello Mohan

    Great review.

    I wonder do you know where kwfinder gets their search volume from?

    A lot of the keyword search tools I have seen like market samurai and long tail pro have stopped working after Google no more gives away the search volume for free.

    Will this also be a problem for kwfinder in the nearest future do you think?

    Best regards

    • Mohan Raj says:

      Hello Morten,

      When tools like Market samurai and Long tail affected by Google AdWord restriction, KWFidner was not affected and worked like charm. Yes, KWFinder get search volume from Google AdWords and few other sources.

      There is no chance of problems with KWFinder in future since the developers are taking this project on a serious note.

  • Dee Mcchristie says:

    I am starting to launch my new affiliate website and reading your post gave me more ideas of what should I do to make it work effectively. Thank you sharing your ideas. Hope I can see more affiliate marketing tips from you. I need it badly as a newbie marketer. 🙂

  • Andy says:

    rankbrain has cheaper plan , only 5$ per month and you can have up to 200 keywords search and analysis per day.

  • Gaurav Verma says:

    I change my blog SEO title with KWFINDER Suggestion. The title score is 34(not hard), after implement on my blog , my ranking is decrease.

    • Mohan Raj says:

      KWFinder helps to find long tail keywords with less SEO competition. As per your statement, the KW difficulty value is 34. You can write a blog post using the long tail keyword and with a moderate Keyword density around 2- 2.5% , then your new blog post will rank higher on Google.

      If there is no backlinks or less keyword density, then even a keyword with score 20 can’t be ranked. Since you changed the SEO title, I suggest you to include that keyword in that blog posts and I’m sure your site will rank.

  • Andrew says:

    How would you compare KWfinder to Market Samurai (MS) tool? Which tool is superior as far as SEO Competition and keyword difficulty in building niche sites?

    Also, is KWfinder a good alternative to replace both Google Keyword Planner (GKP) and Market Samurai (MS)? If I were to get the KWfinder tool, can it help me find high demand/low competition profitable niches? I like to move away from GKP and MS.


    • Mohan Raj says:

      I didn’t used Market samurai personally, so I can’t able to make a statement about it. But KWFinder is absolute gold mine, they bring updates every week adapting to required needs.

      Yes, you can replace both GKP and MS with KWFinder since it gets search volume from GKP only. When tools like LTP and MS got affected by Google limitations to show keyword volume, KWFinder worked flawlessly.

      Most of the times, the keyword difficulty score is accurate and I can say it’s better than most keyword research tools including Ahrefs latest keyword tools.

  • Rakesh Kumar says:

  • Joseph says:

    Hi Mohan,

    Thanks for the KWFinder coupon code. Your awesome!

    I was wondering if you’ve ever heard of Twinword Ideas? It’s an AI-powered keyword research tool.

    Keyword tools often give too many unrelated keywords. So, we developed an AI-powered tool that filters unrelated keywords. Just by moving some sliders, you’ll get a filtered keyword list ready to plug into your campaign for testing.

    Thanks again for the coupon code!
