    After losing money when I created my site a year back, I realised outsourcing keywords is not the way forward as I will never actually be able to judge if they are good and will always be wondering whether the keyword provided is actually low in competition. So please some advice:

    1. Best way to learn KW research?
    2. Tools you recommend
    3. How to be sure is 100% low competition,

    Thanks!

    Lynda.com offers some good course but they will cost...and as for tools, Google keyword planner is one of the most common in use.

    Read through some of the on-page SEO or authority site guides here on Black Hat World. Many of them have a section dedicated to keyword research.
    Once you read through those guides as well as any others you may come across, start applying what you've learnt to a test website. Most of the keyword research guides here will answer your questions and more.

    Go through the threads in above comment and i prefer keyword planner, google.com and ubersuggest. Don't restrict yourself to these tools or any other tools, just explore as much as you can, read about it and learn more and more thing(without wasting too much time) and try to think from the user mind after learning about your niche and talking about competition, put your keyword in keyword revealer and check it's competition and best of luck for your next project.

    I think Long tail pro would help you in checking keywords.

    Semrush and keyword revealer are good option. If you want to make sure it's low competition, do a manual analyst of your top10 competitors in Google.

    Many keyword research tools to use such as Google keyword planner, Long tail pro, Semrush, etc like that. But you want to achieve good in keywords, just my suggestion is try to do research on your competition site keywords and also try to have related keyword, that is most related with that keyword that ever been good. This is one of the way that most of persons do.

    Try SemRush and Google Keyword Planner.
    Which will be the nice one for doing a low competition Keyword.
