If you have been actively doing keyword research recently using Google Keyword Planner, you might have noticed that Google has stopped showing detail search volume and only gives a range of search volume.
This has taken place for every account that does not spend a substantial amount of advertising dollars.
One solution I found is to use SEMrush.com. I have contacted them in regards to how Google’s update has affected their data and here is their response.
The easiest way is to use the Keyword Difficulty Tool. You can copy and paste up to 100 keywords in one go and the tool will give you search volume of each keyword (screenshot below).
Please note: I know it has been reported that SEMrush’s keyword difficulty is on average higher than other tools such as Ahrefs. This is because each tool has its own unique way of determining the keyword difficulty. I have compared SEMrush keyword difficulty with other keyword research tools for my own sites and my SEO consultation clients sites. I found any keywords below “70” keyword difficulty value in SEMrush are easier to rank keywords. I also use my own Keyword Difficulty Checker and it provides pretty good results. In case you are interested, here is a test I conducted to see how my own Keyword Difficulty Checker performed.
