I'm just starting so don't want to spend money on products until I'm actually making money. What free tools would you recommend for the following actions?
1. Monitoring the competitions keywords, their ranking, and the potential traffic they might receive and estimated value. I know SEMRush and SpyFu offer this. They limit the number of keywords you can see to 5. Is there any other services that might offer more, even if it means splitting the job between two services?
Also, is there any services that offer intelligent keyword services? Such as maybe when you pick a keyword they offer other long tails as recommendations...
