    Which Keyword Tool Do You Use?
    I was looking at both WordTracker and Keyword Discovery. I know there are other similar tools out there. Both offer free trials.

    Word Tracker is $299 a year.
    Keyword Discovery os $600 a year.

    Do you pay for a similar tool? I haven't decided if it's worth it yet.

    Wordtracker offers all the resources we have needed.
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
    to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
    isn't and die to find out there is.

    Well I hate the companies that charge for keywords. They are good for ppc affiliates maybe I dont know. I went looking and stumbled on to this and I am sure not many people are using it for keyword discovery until now that is....

    Firefox has a free extension that scans a page to generate keywords, sorts them by weight and recurrence. It's called KGen and it generates: affiliate, keyword, forum, tool, marketing, abestweb, nyfalcon, network, thread, program for this thread page along with the generics: then, which, etc. It is useful and free.

    WordTracker's pretty good, but I've caught it missing off some of the long-tail keywords/phrases (IOW, it'll say there are "0" searches for some long-tail phrases, even though my logs show SE referrals coming in on those exact phrases).

    Ever since I've spotted this, I've had some doubts as to its accuracy, at least on the terms that don't get many searches. There are enough searches for these phrases that it'd be good for maybe a sale every 2 months, per term. Not blowing the doors down, you wouldn't think, but multiply that by 60 such phrases, and it'd amount to a sale a day. Depending on the product(s) in question, that could be serious money.

    WordTracker is good.

    The Overture Keyword Selector Tool is also good, but it doesn't always work and the data is not updsated regularly.

    You always have to consider the sources of the data. WordTracker uses data from searches in Dogpile and Metacrawler. The Overture tool uses searches performed in Yahoo properties.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    Keyword Discovery's free tool has way more capability and information than we can even have time to target. The numbers just need to be crunched against the competition with thorough competitive analysis. All any of them are good for is comparative figures for demand, then we're on our own for what we do with their data.

    Added:
    They're a starting point. Then there's:

    -Finding synonyms
    -Finding related phrases (not the same as synonyms)
    -Query expansion (definitely worth a Google search to read up on it)
    -Writing "verbose" text with rich vocabulary usage
    -Watching logs and/or stats to see how the target audience is searching
    -Wash, rinse, repeat

    Are you referring to the free service or to the paid service ?
