    I'm thinking to buy one of these tools (or maybe some other) for getting keywords from competitors adwords campaigns.

    Which one you can recommend ?

    For a start you cant buy SEMRush. It is a subscription service.

    It is expensive. You must be either a professiona, rich or over optimistic. I would go for the latter.

    Semrush is far best for me. i will not say anything more because all this tools show a demo of their data,so you can compare them anyway.

    If you're using it purely for PPC, get Spyfu. You really can't go wrong, and there's a lot you can learn looking at other people's campaigns closely.

    Their USA/UK data is very very good, and will save you a lot of trial and error on your campaigns.

    I bought keywordspy for a non-usa client I'm researching at the moment, and I think it's shit.
    The data is very dirty (eg 'whinnee the pooh' in terms related to a specific industry software).
    Compared to other services on the market, it's a hassle to use for the insights it provides and the amount of weird shit in the data.
    That could've just been the vertical/country I was dealing with, but I wasn't too impressed.

    There are some other features I like, but overall it's not something I'd suggest you spend your money on given there's alternatives.
    The affiliate reports are decent, I suppose.

    Haven't used SEMrush too much myself so can't comment.

    Wordstream is also good, but a bit more expensive.

    Go with Spyfu.
