It's a free tool, all I did was to install the Chrome Extension in my Google Chrome browser, then whenever I search for a word on Google or YouTube, it'll show me the keyword volume, CPC and competition.

Yes, from the screenshot above, you'll see that there are over 387 million results for the keyword I typed above. Someone is the first, and someone will be the last.

6 Basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Tips That Every Beginner Should Know

- Write Long Posts

Google loves long posts and you should love them too if you want to be Google's friend. There is a saying that 'content is king' meaning that your content is the first factor that search engines consider while indexing your posts.
Also, the more specific your post or answer is to the user's query, the most likely you are to rank high.

- Use Keywords

When looking for articles on search engine optimization (SEO), you probably visit the site on the top of the search engine results because of the keywords you enter.
That is one of the basic tips of SEO service experts apply while writing their blog posts and it makes them appear on the top of the results.

Optimize the post title, meta, heading, sub-heading and minor-heading tags

This is another important tip. This is the first thing a Google user sees and if it is written well, it'll motivate him/her to visit the site.
While writing your post title, ensure that:
- All post titles are unique per page
- The length of the title is no more than 70 characters

- You include target keywords in the title tag
Blindly creating post titles without including keywords don't really help, you should include keywords that are relevant to the topic you are writing about.

- Backlinks are important too

A backlink is when a website or blogs mentions another by linking to it. This is another great SEO tip, it shows that your contents are relevant and deserve to be displayed to the search engine users.
This is an SEO guide for 2018, from the latest updates by Google and other search engines.
If you are in need of a site to get quality backlinks from, you can check out LinksManagement.com, they are experts in the field and have been proven to be of great help to many other people.
Other types of links that matter are internal backlinks (link from one page of your site to another), if you visit any page on Wikipedia, you'll notice that they are experts in this.
You should also be linking to other authority sites that publish contents similar to yours. When they are getting traffic from a site, they'll trace the source of the traffic and in some cases, can appreciate you by giving your website a mention too.

- Make your site to be mobile responsive

This is another tip on getting the best SEO optimized websites. Majority of website traffic comes from the search engines and for you to benefit fully from the traffic, you'll have to put the mobile users into consideration.
Another basic factor is the time it takes your site to load. Use templates that load fast and test it with this tool for doing that.
