SEO Tools for Keyword Intent, Audience

AI is upending keyword research and analysis for search engine optimization.

I’ve addressed AI’s ability to generate new terms and identify search intent for an existing term. Yet the industry continues to innovate and evolve. Here are three AI tools for analyzing keywords, target audiences, content, intent, and more.


TermSniper identifies search intent for any keyword and suggests content tips for optimizing. Type a keyword, and the tool will provide an analysis.

I typed “best web hosting.” Here’s TermSniper’s analysis:

The primary search intent of this search term is to find and compare the best web hosting services available in 2024. The secondary search intent is to get recommendations and reviews of specific web hosting providers from trusted sources.


  • Tone of voice: Informational
  • User’s next action: Continue research
  • Webpage format: Listicle
  • Expert author needed: Not necessarily
  • Brand authority needed: High to medium
  • Incentive: Yes, various offers like discounts and promotions are common
  • CTR boost: Yes, the use of numbers like “2024,” specific terms like “Top Picks,” and mentions of well-known brands

The tool pulls keywords that can match the search intent. For “best web hosting,” those keywords were “best,” “bluehost,” “wordpress,” and “millions.”

TermSniper scores the related keywords from 1 to 100 depending on how many high-ranking pages include each in their page copy and meta tags. The tool recommends adding words scoring 20 to 100 into your meta title, H1, and first paragraph. Add words scoring 1 to 19 throughout the rest of your page in a natural fashion.
