I have not purchased any tools yet nor do I plan on doing it until I start making money.
Find words Intitle:"kw" with less than 700 competing sites
Find words that can get ranked using ezine articles
Find kw with less than 20,000 competing sites in quotes
Find kw's less than 100,000 comp. sites in quotes
and on and on..........not one seems to take into account the number of backlinks the #1-3 spots have pointing back....all of which you should do.
Can anyone offer some clarity?
