    I was using wordtracker(paid one) to find keywords and analyze competition. I have had success with it.

    I would like to test some of the other tools available such as market samurai, traffic travis etc.

    According to your experience, what do you recommend?

    Any input will be appreciated.

    I use market samurai and have had some good success with it. They offer a free trial to the full version. Watch the free video training they offer to help get you jump started with it.

    I have a gaming site that I run in my spare time and have used Market Samurai for keyword research - the video tutorials are great and once you get the hand of the software it has a load of other features as well that are nice.

    I'll be happy to hear of any other recommended tools from BHW members.

    The Pro version of Traffic Travis is the best tool I have used for this...very fast and no captcher's to enter...and there is a thread on here that shows you how to get a pro licence for free.

    Market Samurai for finding why they rank.
    Keyword Spy for taking their keywords
    Keyword Spy to find all the keywords they rank for.
    Compete or Quantcast for finding out their traffic stats and demographics
    SEOQuake for finding out their linking pattern ( good to know if they are still gathering links)
    Google Alerts, to find out where they are currently getting links and making moves.
