Keyword Canine is a software developed by Jonathan Leger and his team and it is a masterpiece among all the software developed by him. I have been using this software for the last several years and I can say with conviction that I just cannot do without it.
Keyword Canine is a piece of software used primarily for keyword and niche discovery. Apart from that, it is also used for competition analysis, link building and backlink analysis. Jon and his team are in the process of releasing version 3.0 for this software very soon. So, through this Keyword Canine 3.0 Review, I have decided to bring out, to my esteemed readers, the features, benefits, pros and cons of the new version of this software.
Version 3.0 of Keyword Canine software has launched on 01-Oct-2015. Go and check it out now!
If you have used KC 2.0 or earlier versions, then I would like to mention that KC 3.0 has been revamped so extensively that it is no more just a keyword analysis tool. It has now become so much more!

Keyword Explorer is made up of 2 sub-modules; a) Explore Keywords, and b) Analyze Keyword.
The option “Explore Keywords” allows you to get a list of related keywords for a given keyword along with Level of Difficulty to Rank, Monthly Search volume for a given Country, Approximate CPC, etc.
After getting a list of keywords through Explore Keywords option, you can click any keyword to further analyze that keyword. Or, you may directly enter any keyword phrase in the input field and press “Analyze Keyword” button.
The above two screenshots show all the information that will be shown to you by KC 3.0 for a particular keyword phrase. You can see that we get extremely in-depth information that will help us to decide whether a particular keyword can be used for our content marketing or other campaigns for generating sales or revenue.
All backlinks related details about your domain is revealed including breakdown of links into DoFollow & NoFollow, EDU & GOV links, Unique C-Class IPs, total links including pagelinks & sitelinks, anchor text breakdown of links, details of linking pages with anchor text per linking page.
You can track and monitor the ranking for any number of keyword phrases per domain. Also, you can find the rank for multiple search engines and for multiple countries.
The search engines that are allowed to be monitored are:
Using Search Digger, you can do very effective keyword mining. Input keyword phrases and press “Get Suggestions” button. You will get a highly relevant list of related keywords which you may download and/or further analyze.
You have an option to search keywords from Google, Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, Ebay and YouTube. You may select some or all these sources while searching for related keywords. This is an extremely powerful functionality.
This option is an excellent tool for finding out the keywords that are used by your competition and then emulating it. You can specify how many keywords should be returned by this menu option.
Any of the keywords that are found can be further explored in order to find variations or for improving the chances of ranking those keywords.
For a software that is so power-packed, it currently costs just $47/- per month. To be very honest, softwares that have even part of its features cost much higher. So, without a doubt, the price is a steal for this software. There is an even more cheaper option when you pay yearly. You pay $297/- per year which is a saving of 47% over the monthly subscription offer.
My Recommendations and Suggestions
As an internet marketer and online service provider, I have been using Keyword Canine for the last several years. And, I have been using Keyword Canine 3.0 from the day of launch. And, I am extremely happy with it. What I have seen in the last many years is that if the product is from Jonathan Leger, then I don’t have to think twice. I can be sure that his products would be highly useful.
So, I can honestly recommend this tool for the target audience that I mentioned earlier.
