    Hi Guys :)

    I'm just about to kick off my first Adwords Campaign. I have a small set of Internet Marketing Tools that have helped me build up a solid list of Keywords that I'm going to be targeting - but crucially, I figured that if I want to beat my competition I need to find out what Keyword's they're using in their Adwords Campaign.

    I have a list of about 13 websites that will be my biggest competitors - and I would love to know a cheeky method that'll be able to help me to find the keywords they're using in their Adwords Campaign. I've searched for their website in Alexa, and have got a healthy list of Keywords that way, but just want to stay one step a head of them and really need to find out the words they're using.

    It would be cool if anyone could shed some light. I would prefer if the service was online and free, of course. But hey, I'm all for compromises!

    Thanks in advance!!! :D

    I managed to find the solution I'm looking for. If anyone has come across this post because you're in the same situation, then I'm using Keyword Spy's free trial. It's giving me what I want so far :)

    No it hasn't. They want to charge me $90 to find out the rest of the Keywords. I'm still in the same predicament. :(

    Why would you want to know what keywords they are using? Do you think that you can outrank them using the same keywords? I mean, if your account is new and you have no keyword history, well good luck trying to outrank them. They may be paying .20 while you will be paying a heck of alot more for those keywords with no history.

    I dont get your mentality. Its not about what others are using but rather what keyword conversion vs the ones that dont. You should be testing yoru own list of keywords not trying to find out what others are using.

    Besides, you can use the adword preview tool to find out exactly. Are you new to this?

    I thought I made it obvious I was new in my thread, not to mention my post count.

    I'm all for criticism, so thank you for your input. My "mentality" is simple - to find Keywords I can use in my Adwords Campaign.

    I quite understand your post. I'm not even going to answer why I should be worried about what keywords my Competitors are using, this I feel is pretty simple.

    :D :D :D
