    What do you guys use for keyword research? I have a few keywords/terms that I am going to try and rank for, but I want to know which one is likely to be more valuable... I have used wordtracker in the past, but it's expensive and (once again) I havnt got the budget for it yet:)

    I use Google Adword keyword tool as it's easy to operate but now switch to Market Samurai as this is more reliable and latest.
