      Hi!

      I'd also recommend to get started with the Google AdWords tool. Learn about all the metrics etc. Then you can always use some Firefox Extensions like SEOQuake.

      When it comes to spending some real money, I'd definitely recommend SECockpit. Market Samurai just stopped working for me.

    Of course, go with google since it is the one who provides data. All other tools are just relying to it. However, if you could use all those three or perhaps just 2 of them, then that would be fine. Why spend when you can use a free tool such as the GKT.

    The GKT plays an integral part in my research, although it is not the only keyword search tool needed by far in my opinion.
    I have been using Market Samurai for the past 6 months or so.
    If you have any doubts try using the Google keyword tool to research the title of your post which is "keyword research tool". Compare that to "keyword search tool", and see if you can come up with definative results comparing search traffic vs. competition, and the logical choice between these two keywords. They are very close, yet so far away when closely compared.
    Before you spend a dime on anything though, be sure you understand the concept of keyword research, and the implications of competition for those keywords. Pick your battles carefully.

        Jim,
        I do not profess to be an expert, so I try to apply what little common sense I have. All of my experience has come the way of hard knocks. If you are new you are probably suffering from information overload. I would urge you to simplify things and keep it simple to begin with. What confuses most of us is what to promote. My initial thought was to promote a common item that most everyone owns in a price range of $100-$500. The dissapointment was overwhelming when I was not able to drive any traffic without paying for it, and that little paid traffic I did get did not convert. Little did i know that I was competing in a market that was dominated by big dogs, with much more experience than I will ever have.
        I ran across one of many videos that was offering some product, and although I did not purchase the product I did take away some good ideas regarding market selection. Since then I have concentrated on finding products/services in underleveraged markets with manageable competition.
        I first search for a product, not a keyword. The search for keywords comes later, and is a part of the process. Once I find a potential product, only then will I research to see if I can compete with the keywords necessary to drive traffic via a first page Google rank.
        To locate a product I may use search terms such as " does work", or "how does work" to see what people are searching for, and needing a solution to a problem. This will give me ideas to start with, and then I can look to my affiliate networks to see if they have corresponding products to fill this potential need. I will also check to see if a potential product has an independent affiliate offering that may not be offered through my affiliate networks. Then I will search for those products to see what the competition looks like.
        After this I will use Samurai to do some indepth research for hundreds of potential keywords, the search volume, and the competition. I do not rely on just the keywords that any tool will suggest. I may sit on the porch with a notebook and a cold drink and think of all the keywords a potential customer may use to locate a particular solution. I paid good money for my keyword search tools, but they sometimes miss some winning keywords. Keep them relevant, these need to be terms people are actually using to search with to find the solution you offer.
        Remember, competition should be manageable. YOU get to pick what you promote. You will spend many hours building a site, and promoting it. It's worth it to spend a couple days researching your product/service selection before moving forward, only to discover your competition is overwhelming, and much worse, that you do not have the conviction and resolve to work hours on end promoting your site.....which is a whole 'nother deal in itself.
        This is actually the short version of what I do, but I hope it gives you some insight as to where you might start. Good luck!

    I use both Google adwords tool and Market Samurai. Both awesome tools. Market Samurai will give you all the info you will need for a specific keyword. Does in depth keyword research along with showing to the top 10 results for a keyword and all the competition you will face. Even has a tab for getting some backlinks.

    I would suggest Google AdWord Tool. But for better results, you can use those three.
