    Keyword research
    Hi all:

    I first began my little affiliate marketing sideline in 2002. Since then, the availability of some of the most prevalent keyword tools has changed.

    Could you give me your best recommendations for keyword research? I'm on a Mac, so any PC software won't work for me.

    Thanks in advance,

    Here are some good threads from the past on it, Alison:

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you most kindly. I really did try a forum search, but got so many results that I didn't know where to start.

    I'm off to read. Thanks again.

    It seems that almost all the info out there seems not to recognize that Overture is dead. There is discussion about it, but nothing definitive. Many still recommend sources that USE Overture's out-of-date data.

    Is Wordtracker the only major tool that does NOT use Overture data?

    I've also used Google's tool, but it doesn't give counts as far as I can tell. Am I missing something?

    Yup Overture data is over a year old now. Never liked it much anyway cause it didn't differentiate between singular/plural or the order of words in a keyword phrase.

    WordTracker is my favourite source for keyword stats.
    KeywordDiscovery is OK and provides a second opinion.

    Googles tool provides relative popularity but not number of searches.

    11,798 is also worth a try.
