    So quite a few people who know my niche and my struggles have said I picked one of the worst niches to start out in (dating).

    With that in mind I want to try a new niche.

    Can you guys give me tips for what I should be looking for in terms of analyzing my comp?

    Also what sort of figures should I be looking for to deem the keyword a 'goer'?

    How many exact searches vs. how much comp- what figures should I be looking for in the comp as overall in no indicator but rather top 10-20 right?

    Another also- what is the best recommended tool for this? I downloaded traffic travis the other day which seems ok but others say market samurai. I can also do this easily manually with GKWT/manual searches right? It's just these problems lay it out in a nice neat fashion? Kind of like manual rank searching vs. using a tool like rank tracker.

    Is there a working version of samurai on this site? cos I have a semi working which I didn't get from BHW and it only seems to do rank tracking and everything else just gets jammed/doesn't work.
