    An experienced one would take up to 10 minutes only while newbies can take up to half an hour or more.

    It hardly 5 to 10 mins. There are search tools i.e google keyword tool where you will find 100s of similar keywords with their search rankings in just f mins.

    I tend to spend about 2 hours to gather 5 GOOD keywords for a microniche site. I typically don't even start the site until my keywords are chosen. Then, for the next couple weeks, those keywords are my focus. I then slowly add more keywords to other pages of the site over the course of, say, 1 new keyword, every other week or so.

    It really depends on a niche.
    Normally it may take a day to get a bunch of main 20-25 keywords if any seo tool is not used. If you do careful keyword research you have to analyze your competitors, count kei, competition etc, look through the SERPs, there is much work to do. I am not saying the more time the better.
    In case of usage of any good tool for keyword research I can reduce this time to 3-4 hours per 20-25 good keywords.
    But again, really depends on the SEO strategy.

    It takes 10 minutes to search keywords but it takes several hours to analyze which keywords to choose.

    Cheers.

    Keyword research is the very basic and essential SEO activity and I prefer to spend a fair amount of time on it and apply different methods where possible. Of course number one source for me is Google AdWords, but I also look through Wordtracker's database, related searches from search engines, go for competition research and more.. I mean it really depends on how much time you have at your disposal, but the complex approach makes it possible to discovere real gems sometimes (although I am not saying it can be done faster). And, needless to say, I always check out number of searches, competition for every potential keyword and calculate keyword efficiency index. So, it may take you half an hour, as well as a couple days, but if you go not only for keyword research but for keyword analysis - half an hour will obviously not be enough.
