    get market samurai (free trial) then watch the videos they have up. It will help you a lot and give you a lot of insight into keyword research. Also, a quick search here on bhw will give you many threads on this topic

    or you can start by taking some sites in a niche where you think you will want to enter, and search for the keywords this sites are ranking for in ahrefs.com - there you can see the keywords and the exact search volume etc

    Another good way to find nice keywords is to go to jumptags.com and take a look at the "500 most recent public jumptags". If you like some keyword group/niche, you can go further and click on the username to see all the bookmarks the user have done. chances are you will find a lot of related keywords/pages/etc

    if this doesn't satisfy you, you can also search in the forum for other keyword research threads

    of course everyone wants a lot of traffic that means you will rank for a lot of long tails. If you start out trying to rank your inner pages you may find you can rank for your main keyword easier...

    usually use Google keyword tool. Enter basic phrase, then see suggestions. Choose some of the best suggestions and insert them in keyword search box. Do it a few times and you will have a good list of long tail keywords.
