    google adwords tool - it's free.

    I use exact match to check for competition but i use broad match when i am looking at overall traffic....that's just me.

    hope this helps :ranger:

    I find some info and want to share here with you and other member on BHW.
    For free, Let try WhatsMySERP! It is completely free and allows registered users to have 10 domains and 25 keywords per domain.I am sure you will be satisfied with.
    Some other with fee: PowerSuite's Rank Tracker. There is a small fee once a year to keep the program updated.If you want to be cheap, CuteRank used to work okay.

    I like Traffic Travis, it's a fairly simple program but I feel it gives you a lot of the key base metrics. I then assess who the real competitors are and if I deem necessary I might check them out on Ahrefs or Majestic seo, sometimes more, depends how big the campaign is.

    I personally HATE market samurai. It's difficult to use, slow, and hard to move data around the way I want ... if even at all possible. Depends on the situation.
