There are numerous SEO tools out there and my are of interest is on those SEO tools which takes care of particular problem. For example, earlier I talked about one tool call SEMRUSH which let us find long tail Keyword with high CPC. Today I will be reviewing a long tail Keyword suggestion tool known as Hittail which I also mentioned in my earlier article: How to use SEMRUSH and here I will be sharing review and why this tool is so important in post Panda stage.

HitTail review: It’s a big deal SEO tool

To be honest, my first impression of Hittail was not great. I thought this tool was useless and after using it for a while, I never used it. My mistake was I just signed up for the tool but never put it to work. But after a while, when I used this tool, I was amazed to see improved ranking for some of my popular Keywords and my blog started getting more organic and targeted traffic. So, let me explain What is Hittail and what is the use of this SEO Keyword tool?

Hittail Keyword Tool review

Post Panda age, Google started giving more importance to niche and authority blogs. For example, if you are writing about only “WordPress” related topic on your Blog, it will be easier to rank but when you are using a multi-topic blog, you will have to fight hard to create an authority and get good ranking in any niche. For example, here at ShoutMeLoud I cover Facebook, SEO, Blogging and so on. Now, due to topic diversity it takes time for a topic to get authority and ranking. Where as, on WphostingDiscount, I write about WordPress hosting and one way to create authority and improve ranking over time is, write content based on related Keyword which drive more traffic.


More over, Long tail keyword is the most profitable and easier to rank for, as it solves user queries and hittail SEO tool is an answer to it. Hittail analyze your current keywords which drive traffic to your blog and suggest more related long tail Keywords based on that. All you need to do is write content based on those Keywords and see your ranking improved and Overall improvement in authority. Here is an example of my traffic report for few Facebook Keywords which I found using Hittail and published few posts on SML and see how my old and new posts started driving more Facebook related Keyword traffic: (1 day traffic report)

    Hittail seems a nice tool to find long tail keywords, but I still prefer google adwords tools as its a lot easy as well as free of use. But still will give this tool a try.

    • says

      Mayank, I agree to your point as there are methods like using the google search operators to find whether if you can rank using the long tail keywords, so rather than depending on paid tool we should get techniques which will help us in longer term.

    Till today I have been using Google’s keyword tool (now keyword planner) and must admit is quite useful besides i have tried market samurai keyword tool and it was amazing as well.Definitely would love to give it a try.

    Although I’ve not tried Hittail’s article writing services, I can definitely say that it is a must-ave tool for those of us operating blogs and econmerce websites. Hittail has help me to figure out which topics are doing well on my blog and in short order too. Hittail combined with with Google Analytics have both help me to focus on certain keyword phrases and not spend countless hours trying to rank for the impossible. Yes, there are some free tools on the market, but paying for Hittail each month is more than worth it.

    It is kind of a little bit pricey for novice and starters to online business. I think it would be great if they have a package that is just one time payment. As for me I purchase two keyword related tools from Brad Callen namely 1) Keyword Elite 2.0 and 2) Niche Finder. Both products are one time payment and they work.

      Being novice there is plenty of experimentation left so let us experiment with Harsh’s recommendation, if suits then have to take its suggestions seriously to build our blogs.

    • Santanu says

      But I think for a newbie blogger like me, Google Keyword tool is best and evergreen. And its free for lifetime also.

      • Rahul says

        Hi Santanu,

        Well the experience of using Hit Tail was actually useful, It provided us with recommendations of words and helped us to target more keywords which we actually did not realise.

        Even if you are a newbie blogger, there is no harm in exploring hit tail, I am sure, it would have bought good results for your efforts.

        Harsh’s advise is precious, try to follow it ;-)

        • Santanu says

          Thanks Rahul, I am learning day by day and I know how Harsh is helping a newbie blogger like me.

          Thanks a lot for this blog and all efforts.
