Summary:

Traffic Travis is one of the best free SEO keyword research tool that is recommended for small SEO tasks like keyword research, link analysis, Website health check, competition analysis and PPC analysis. Price is reasonable considering the features available.


Traffic Travis is one of the best SEO keyword research tools if you need all in one SEO Tool. Traffic Travis review is completely based upon the usability factor, and I did extensive testing before writing this review.

Keyword Research Tool

Without any doubt, Google’s keyword tool is the best free tool available to conduct initial research to find potential keywords. However, if you need extra functionality for finding potential keywords and keyword rich domains, then Traffic Travis works perfectly.

Here to mention, I am also using Market Samurai that was better than Traffic Travis, but not now. It is one of the reasons that I switched to Traffic Travis to conduct my keyword research and track my websites.

Project Management

You can load multiple websites in Traffic Travis to track the performance, conduct keyword research, analyze backlinks and find potential backlink partners.

After the penguin update, it is a very handy tool to detect backlinks that are hurting your website rankings. You can simply analyze your backlinks and open in a browser to contact webmaster to remove those links.

Moreover, you can also find potential websites within your niche that you can reach to grab links. You can save the results in PDF or CSV.

What I don’t like!

One thing I don’t like is that you need to enter proxy to find backlinks and if you are not using a proxy, you will get warning from Google that you are sending too many automated queries.

Finding free proxies is difficult, and you need to invest $8 per month to get the proxies. It is something that should be provided with Traffic Travis or some source to find free proxies.

I also don’t like the keyword research ideas that were generated because tends to be more towards PPC campaigns than organic SEO. For example, I don’t find potential long tail keywords.

You may also find some bugs saying, “Oops! This is embarrassing.”

What I like!

Market Samurai is now very slow and lags often, but Traffic Travis is fast. Sometimes, you may not like the performance, but overall satisfactory.

You can evaluate all your website pages to check the SEO score and find warnings on each individual pages.

It is a good tool to conduct basic level research and analysis. However, it does not offer complete SEO solutions.

Comparison with Similar SEO Tools

If you compare Traffic Travis with other SEO tools like Market Samurai and Keyword Elite, it has slight edge on functionality and features. Market Samurai was way much better, but recently they made big changes, which ruined the software completely.

There is also a FREE version of Traffic Travis available that you can use before buying the pro version. Pro version will give you unlimited use of features, but FREE version is also comprehensive.

My Review

I would rate 3 out 5 based on usability and functionality, but I cannot ignore the fact that there is no alternative to Traffic Travis in such price. It is worth spending $97 because you can manage multiple projects with this handy SEO Tool.

    I think Traffic Travis is the best FREE keyword research tool. But when it comes to paid version, it’s not as good as Market Samurai or Long Tail Pro
