Keyword Research - Frequently Asked Questions

by 1033 replies
Hi warriors,

I am searching good free keyword research tool. Curently I am using this keyword research tool: Seo Book Keyword Suggestion Tool

It is not very bad tool, but this tool doesn't show competing pages and shows only a limited number of keywords.

Are there any tools which show competing pages and unlimited keyword number?

    Yep...MKT SAM is where it's at. No, its not free but as mentioned already...it will pay for itself time and time again.

    +1 for Market Samurai here, too.

    It does show the number of competing pages - for whatever that's worth to you - and allows you to analyse the backlink PR and anchor-text of the top 10 competition, plus any custom sites/pages you enter into it.

    The revamped Keyword Research module also generates up to 800 keywords "per pass" now, I believe - so long as you enter into it your Google Account login details.

      I bought both Market Samurai and MNF back in May this year. Got to say MS has been the quicker with updates when google decides to alter something and is always adding new functions.

    Market Samurai is probably the best for what u want to do.
    The free version is very good.

    I use Market Samurai. I think it is the best. Not only does it do a good job but it is regularly updated and maintained. And a fixed price too no monthly fee. The best way to describe it is that it takes the research you could do manually in your browser for free, and spend hours on and presents the essential results to you in seconds. If you value your time it is worth buying.

    WebCEO I used and got a refund - it's a bit slow and dated. It has a lot of feature but not convinced on the usefulness. MS is better in that you get results that matter much more quickly.

    I tried Wordtracker on a trial. Wasn't convinced when it came up with very long tail keywords and said 100+ visits per day. I think their data is slightly wrong and as soon as I distrusted the data I couldn't use it anymore.

    Only downside to MS is it Google-only data. No Yahoo/Bing is taken account of. But I do get some keywords where the traffic comes from Y and B and not G. So do some manual Y/B research as well or perhaps find a different tool for that if you need.

    Bear in mind there is no perfect keyword research solution, and there never will be because the search engines never release totally accurate data.

      Indeed. Wordtracker, as I understand it, takes (or used to take) their search volume data from small meta search engines, which almost nobody really uses.

      They may or may not have then extrapolated that data, somehow, in an attempt to estimate the number of searches you're likely to receive from the three big search engines - Google, Yahoo and Bing.

      Seems a kind of arcane, hit-and-miss approach, and based a little too much on guesswork, for my liking. And what's the point in that, when you can just get the data straight from Google (and ok, I know it's not completely accurate all of the time - but it's much better), nicely retrieved and presented into tables, ready to analyse, in a tool like Market Samurai?

      So that was a hunch or did you run some tests to check the accuracy? I am asking because I always wonder if there is no merit to those paid keyword tools, why do people still pay for those!

      Also, any thoughts on "Keyword Spy" from anyone ?

      Hope you don't mind me asking questions about paid tools on your thread. They are so relevant, I thought we can fit them in one thread rather than starting a new one

    I have just downloaded and istalled free version of Market Samurai.

    I did "affiliate" keyword research. I can say that this software is so powerful, that my computer even isn't that good to run this software without lag...

    I think that in the future I will buy MS.

      No kiddin', lol. Market Samurai had my desktop PC slow to a grinding halt whenever I ran it. Frustration to the max! Though this beast of a little laptop I now have sees it running almost as fluidly as beer passes my lips on a night out - just without all the ill after-effects.

      Seriously though ... it's a great piece of software. Although use of the Keyword Research module is free, it's worth buying if only for the addition of the SEO Competition and Rank Tracker modules. (Which, collectively, happen to be the only 3 modules I really use, anyway.)

    cat amongst the pigeons ... I know if your living is creating sites and posting them and getting high rankings immediately before the next project is important that the comparing ten site back link is very good.

    Can I just ask, except for the rounding and latency of the free google keywords tool, what is wrong with it as far as finding keyword volumes go? I am annoyed that in general research that Google has killed off the previous month data columns, but for a rough idea of Exact search volumes ... what is wrong with this orginal free tool?

    I use Google Adwords keywords tool and that works for me....
    I guess all other tools are fetching the stats from Google only so why not to go directly to the parent company....

      I think you are absolutely right.But there is a huge lack of technique to use Google keyword tool properly.That's why people are choosing different customized tools.I emphasize on Google trends, Google insight for search and Google ad-words keyword tool.I personally believe that these tools are enough to research keyword
