Keyword Discovery – New Features

The folks at Trellian have updated my favorite SEO tool, Keyword Discovery.  (Yes, fair disclosure, that’s an affiliate link and I certainly appreciate anyone who uses it.)  Keyword Discovery is my keyword tool of choice, so much more that a cheepie like me pays a monthly fee.  In addition to the detailed keyword research I can do for new clients and to update ongoing clients, I use it to very quickly get a sense of what I might be up against competition-wise when quoting for a potential client.

Here are a few of the latest upgrades to Keyword Discovery, more or less in Trellian’s own words.

KeywordDiscovery Updates:

1. More Keyword Data Options

– With every keyword database you now have the ability to search through
even more data. Along with a recent update a new “Historical” option has
been added to every keyword database view search volume data from August
2006 onwards.

– US Regional specific dataset is now available.
The US keyword database has over 868 Million searches in the 12 month
database and over 1.6 billion in the 2 year historical database.

(Editor’s note.  This will come in handy if you have a website that ships ony to the USA!)

2. Three New Features and Three Improvements

– Adult Filter
This function removes adult based keywords from the search results.

(Editor’s note.  This follows a welcome change I have noticed in Google image search results!)
– Remove Spaces
This function allows searching for search term with and without spaces.

– Domain Score
This is for domainers who are interested to know the search counts for .com
based searches.
For a detailed explanation please see:

– Keyword Density Tool Upgrade
A range of extra filtering, sorting, stop word list and view options have
been added. If you liked the keyword Density tool before, you will be
impressed with the all the new options.

– Export Function Upgrade
You can now select the database for search counts at the export prompt.

– Import Function Upgrade
You can now import directly to a project.

3. New Features Added to the API
For API and Enterprise users only, the API has received a few updates
including the addition of:

– phrase match option
– plural searches
– all regional databases
– all historical databases

All these are incremental changes, of course.  The best part is that you can get recent keyword research to find out what is new in how people are searching, and you can get the high-volume historical research to know what keywords have stood the test of time (and better choose long tail keywords).  Plus, there are a number of country-specific databases.


  1. Sorry for asking this-are you reseler of this product? Is it really that good? To my knowledge there are tens of such 'keyword' products.
