I have seen many people asking about free keyword tools and niche finders. There are a lot of great paid tools out there to help you drill down to a specific niche. These tools are great because they save you a lot of time. There are several free ones you can use that may take a little more manual digging to get to the right long tail keywords. Then there are some that take a little less work.
