    Best Keyword Research Tool
    Hey guys,

    So I have had a bit of a search for information about effective keyword research tools. Does anyone know of any good tools or free tools outside of wordtracker...there is something i just dont like about that software.

    Cheers

    Andy

    Have you tried doing a search on ABW? The query "keyword+tool" returns 142 results including this recent entry: http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread...t=keyword+tool

    Good place to start

    Someone recently suggested to me Google's Search Based Keyword Tool, and that it was pretty accurate. I am finding that to be pretty true. google.com/sktool
    I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Bud Lite than Kay.

    For me it is often my wife ;-). Without meaning this in a bad way, but she is a typical Internet user in my opinion and I see so many things happening that get mentioned in discussions - it's almost perfect for creating adwords ads, picking domain names, or finding keywords.

    Hi Andy,
    i would recommend googles key word tool. u can find it at https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
    i also found an article comparing Google vs. Wordtracker
    netprofitstoday.com/blog/keyword-tools-google-vs-wordtracker/

    check it out- it should help you decide between the two or if you want to find a different tool alltogether.
    Good luck!!

    There's an interesting article today at MediaPost:SearchInsider [not an affiliate blog]
    The Days of Guessing at Keyword Research Are Over

    This article offers tips on how to engage your target audience in meaningful ways because the ability to understand human response and search is more complex than the choice of a handful of keywords.

    There's also the Urban Dictionary, the "free dictionary," wiktionary, and videos on You Tube. Hope I'm on the right track.

    Awesome! She must have some great insight. You should nominate her like they did Jason http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=128359



    Regarding keyword tool, I used to use wordtracker when I had my pc but now I find the google adwords tool much easier and more accurate. Then I will also add my own keyword in.

    I agree with this quote.

    Yes keyword tools are great like Google, Keyword Spy and etc.

    Use your friends, what you see on the media to think of other ideas of hottest trends. What people would actually search for.

    From there look for an offer than can match that. You will be highly successful if you keep thinking outside the box and not focused to much on hoping a keyword tool is the end all.

    Cheers!
