    The SEO Keyword Hound has been in development for more than a year. It grew from a mixture of internal needs for a SEO tool and a realization that such a great fit didn’t exist in the market.

    “We were battling with improving SEO ourselves and couldn’t find the right solutions. We had to use many spreadsheets and develop small tools”, explains David Rashty, founder of CreativeMinds.

    One of the hurdles is the lack of tools that track keywords in an efficient and easy to use way.

    “And SEO Keyword Hound solves that: it lets you manage keywords on the same page the content is, letting you focus on improving your SEO,” says David.

    Marcin Dudek, lead developer responsible for the project, is confident on the power of the tool: “I’m convinced it can revolutionize the general level of SEO across the WordPress pages.”

    He also highlights its potential: “When we add our planned integration with cloud services, it will be even better.”

    Important Questions

    I’m a beginner. Where do I start?

    I’m an expert. What can I expect from the SEO Keyword Hound?

    You can expect a fully-fledged keyword KPI tracker with extensive tools to compare statistics such as keyword density, CTR and bounce rate to those of your opponents.

    SEO Keyword Hound uses data from Google Analytics and Moz, and provides handy shortcuts to fetch this information.

    I use Yoast SEO. Can I still benefit from the SEO Keyword Hound?

    Most definitely, as Yoast SEO and the SEO Keyword Hound have very different scopes and complement each other.
