See search volumes for any keyword on YouTube for 171 countries

The best way to get consistent views for your videos is to do keyword research. That means knowing what your viewers are searching for.

By processing large amounts of clickstream data, our YouTube Keyword Tool shows reliable search volumes for any keyword. Compared to other tools that assume arbitrary numbers from Keyword Planner, this is the only tool that shows you real search volumes!

Link opportunities

Not from the U.S.? No problem. You can also see search volume numbers for any keyword in 171 countries (yours is likely in it!).

You can even see the average monthly number of clicks on the search results. If the clicks are low, that means searchers are not satisfied with the search results. Translation: an opportunity for you to capture those clicks with an engaging video.

Find and prioritize the best keywords using filters

Make your workflow more efficient. Use our filters to find the best video topics for your channel. You can filter by:

  • Search volume — shows you how many times per month, on average, people in a given country search for your target keyword.

  • Word count — the number of words in a keyword or phrase

  • Clicks — Some searches result in clicks on multiple search results, while others might have none. ‘Clicks’ shows the average monthly number of clicks on the search results for your target keyword.

  • Clicks per search — shows how many different search results people click, on average, after searching for this keyword.

  • Return Rate — a unique Ahrefs metric that compares which keyword gets more repeat searches using a relative scale. For example, a keyword with a Return Rate of 3 simply means that it gets searched more often than a keyword with a Return Rate of 2 (and not merely being searched 3 or 2 times a month.)

You can even include or exclude certain terms. Say you’re only looking for “how to” keywords. You can use the Include filter to show keywords with “how to” in them.
