Today, I want to show you how to make the most of the Ubersuggest Chrome extension.
From being in the SEO industry for over 21 years now, I know that it’s more convenient to do your SEO research while browsing the web or searching Google than constantly having to come back to Ubersuggest.
That’s why I created this Chrome extension.
So, what’s inside the Chrome extension?
Well, the easiest way to know what’s included (it’s free), is to just go install it and test it out.
I’ll show you how to use the Ubersuggest Chrome extension with this guide of tips and tricks.
Here’s what’s included…
When searching Google, you’ll see an overview within the search bar.
It displays the monthly search volume and the cost per click (CPC) for that keyword.
When you click the “view all” link, you’ll see a detailed overview for that keyword.
The graph breaks down the total monthly search volume. What’s cool about the chart is that it shows you both the monthly mobile searches and desktop searches.
And above the graph, you’ll get metrics on how hard that keyword is to rank for (SEO difficulty) and how competitive that keyword is from a paid advertising standpoint (paid difficulty).
Under the large graph, you’ll see two bar graphs. The first one breaks down whether people are clicking on the SEO results, paid results, or not clicking anywhere at all.
The second one shows data on the age range of all searchers.
Above the organic results, you’ll see a speech bubble that breaks down the average authority of the sites that are ranking (domain score) and the average number of referring domains the top 10 results have.
If you want a more detailed overview, you’ll see a graph in the sidebar that breaks down how many referring links each of the top 10 listings have.
Keep in mind the link metrics are based on referring domains. So, if a website has 100 links from the same domain name, it will only count as one. Because what really matters when it comes to SEO is how many unique, relevant sites you can get to link to you as opposed to having the same site linking to you over and over again.
When it comes to link-building strategies, remember to focus not only on quantity but also quality backlinks.
Even More Keyword Data
In the sidebar, you’ll find even more keyword data.
You’ll see a list of other popular keywords that are similar. This is a great way to generate content ideas using Ubersuggest.
You’ll also get metrics on each keyword—from how often it is searched (volume), to what it would cost to bid on that keyword (CPC), to how difficult the keyword is from an SEO standpoint (SD).
If you scroll to the very bottom of the screen, you’ll see a list of related keywords that Google provides.
Again, Ubersuggest provides you with data like search volume, cost per click, and SEO difficulty data.
Whenever you perform a search on Google, you, of course, see a list of websites that rank for that keyword.
Under URL, you see the authority of the website (domain score), how many Pinterest and Facebook shares the URL has, and how many unique domains are linking to that result.
What’s cool is you can click on the down arrow next to the link count and see the exact list of sites linking as well as their domain score and the anchor text they used for the link.
Pick Your Country and Language
The last feature in the extension enables you to change your location and language.
All you have to do is click the “Settings” link in the sidebar.
You’ll see a long list of languages and countries to choose from.
No matter what version of Google you are using, such as Google.com.br or even Google.co.in, you’ll see SEO data whenever you perform a search.
