What is SpyFu?

SpyFu is a specialist keyword research tool with a host of useful features for anyone involved in SEO and/or PPC.

As the name would suggest, SpyFu enables you to ‘spy’ on your competitors keywords – helping you identify their search tactics and most profitable keywords.

What does SpyFu do?

In their own words, SpyFu “exposes the search marketing secret formula of your most successful competitors.”

With SpyFu, you can search for any domain and it will reveal every keyword they rank for on Google, and every keyword they’ve paid for on AdWords (now Google Ads).

These insights can be invaluable when you’re planning an SEO campaign, as you can see exactly what keywords your competitors are targeting – and which ones are driving the most traffic and conversions.

You can also track your own keyword rankings across Google, Bing and Yahoo, and there is a backlink tool included which highlights the ‘best’ websites to target for links depending on your target keyword.

It’s the keyword research toolset that really sets SpyFu apart though.

As well as reviewing your competitors keywords, you can also use SpyFu as a straight up keyword research tool. Input a seed keyword and it will produce a wealth of keyword data for you to use. It includes insights such as:

  • Top domains on that keyword-including their rankings over time
  • Stats like search volume, daily clicks and calculated value of an organic click
  • History of rank changes show you where (and when) to make the right move
  • A screenshot of every SERP lets you trust the results
  • Related terms to inspire new content
  • URLs of the exact content that ranks on the keyword you’ve searched
