Hi, I’m Ben! I founded Keyword Chef in 2021, but the story didn’t start there. See, several years earlier, I discovered niche websites and have been building them ever since.
While building my own niche websites, I discovered a keyword research strategy that worked extremely well. In fact, the first time I tried this new process, I was able to win the Google snippet within minutes. Other times, I was able to earn affiliate commissions 24 hours after clicking publish.
Of course, not every article I wrote ranked instantly, but most of them ranked very fast – and it didn’t require any link building or shady tactics either.
After developing my skills in finding and identifying low competition keywords, I thought the process could be automated.
Unlike other tools that require time sorting through thousands of keywords while hoping to find anything useful, I wanted something that would give you good keywords straight away. I wanted a tool that would find low competition keywords as fast and as easily as possible. No garbage keywords, useless metrics, or cluttered screens. A keyword tool that just worked.
This is when I started programming Keyword Chef from scratch. After 6 months of development and working with a private beta group, I did a soft launch to my Affiliate Niche Builders Facebook group.
When I launched, Keyword Chef didn’t have all the perks it does today. It didn’t have the Bulk SERP Checker Tool, keyword clustering, or PAA keywords, but people loved it.
Today, I’m still continuing to improve Keyword Chef. The goal is not to create just another keyword research tool, but to create something that bloggers and niche site builders love using.
What Makes Keyword Chef Different?
Unlike other SEO tools, Keyword Chef is primarily focused on bloggers and those publishing blog-type content. While other keyword tools may boast about their large keyword databases, we know that more keywords aren’t always better. There are lots of keywords that are too broad or too competitive to rank for, so we automatically remove these keywords for you. The keywords leftover are high-quality keywords with clear search intent that you’re excited to write about.
We also took a unique approach to competition analysis. Other tools use backlinks as the primary metric in keyword difficulty scores. While this can work a lot of times, it has shortcomings. For instance, such metrics often don’t take into account how optimized competitors are or even if they are targeting the right keyword.
This is why Keyword Chef introduced SERP Score. The SERP Score counts the number of easy to outrank sites on the first page search results for a keyword. SEOs know that the easiest way to find underserved keywords is to look for forums and other user-generated content sites. With the SERP Score, Keyword Chef will automatically highlight these keywords for you, so you never need to check the SERPS manually.
Using the built-in filtering methods and SERP Score, Keyword Chef finds keywords that you can find and rank for as quickly as possible.
