The important information on the billing page is the number of keywords you can look up per day, the rank tracker terms. For annual pro plan, the keywords per day limit is 2500, the rank tracker terms limit is 200. For starter plan, the limits are lower(800?).
On the “Keyword Research” page, you can input a domain, then it will retrieve the authority information of this domain, and give you two numbers based on the authority information. You can rank keywords easily whose KC is below the two numbers and rank keywords with KC in the range of the two numbers with more efforts.
Below, you can get keyword information in different ways. You can input 1-5 seed keywords, and tell LTP how many keywords it will suggest for each seed keyword(up to 400). Then click the “RETRIEVE” button, it will pull all suggested keywords below. For example, if you input 2 seed keywords and input 20 for “Suggestions per keyword”, you will get 40 suggested keywords with their KC, Volume, Bid, Words, Rank Value, etc.
