Jaxxy keyword finder is transparent as the others but provides fewer stats for free. For more results, you will need to purchase they paid plans.

Moving on to the more intense illustration #2, you will find that Jaaxy has limited the list of related keywords. 

This tool wasn't that helpful, so I didn't really use it to it's fullest features. I was seeking completely free tools as a fresher. 

It provides an average search volume of 3391. Traffic as per first-page ranking, QSR (Competing sites), KQI (quality of the keyword), SEO and, domains that are related to the keyword. 

Not much of a comprehensive tool, but nothing to lose in giving it a try!

How to the results

This keyword tool can be a little complicated for beginners. But nonetheless, if you are determined enough to learn the metrics, then you can surely go ahead. 

In my opinion, I think this keyword tool is more specifically for professionals. However, the reason why I suggested it, is because of its vivid and deep features and the results it provides.

In the first illustration, you can see I have searched the same keyword 'overthinking'. The organic results for volume and search stats differ. 

You can also see the CPC right below and towards the right CPC distribution and trends for a year.

Secondly, the related and phrase match keywords searched. Notice the phrase search is higher than related search.

The last illustration is clearly about organic results and URLs that are ranking for this term.

In summary to this Keyword, I can certainly say it can be the chosen one but at the same time. Give all a try and see which provides more results and accuracy.
