    Hi,

    There really are so many tools you can use for this it is crazy. Market Samurai is ok, however in my opinion Long Tail Pro Platinum is the tool of choice for me. I like the fact it looks at more metrics than just what is pulled from adwords and bing. The first page analysis function is really good as well.

    I use platinum because I like the extra functionality so i cant comment on how useul the lower packages would be.

      Well, I am looking for market potential estimation (based on keywords trafic) and long tail indentification.

      Nothing major

  • A good tool would be Alexa, they have both a free and paid version. With Alexa it will break down the whole market for you, to help get a grasp of where you might need to be.

    I like using magazines, and the competition studying sales material that has done millions and reading magazines that my audience reads is the best things you can do.

    Focusing mainly on information product publishing, my top intitial research spots are:

    - Forums in my niche
    - Blog directories and articles (to guage which posts are gaining the most participation )
    - YouTube - again I study the videos for which ones are getting watched the most and comments
    - Amazon (of course....)
    - Google Search around my topics to find other products and offerings

    You will note this all centers around studying dialog and/or commercial activity - always start here THEN you can go find the best keywords to help target these areas as well as an opening to differentiate your offering within the competition.

      Yes. I wouldn't pay for a tool. All the information you need is out there for free. Most of what you need to look for is activity.

      I use google mostly:
      • Google Trends
      • Google Keyword Planner
      • Google SERPs

      Then I use things like what jbsmith said to pinpoint what's getting consumed:
      • SubReddits
      • YouTube
      • Blogs
      • Forums
      • etc.
