    Today i analyzed a keyword on both MNF and TT both gave me different result

    Traffic Travis said it was "RELATIVELY EASY"

    Micro niche finder said it is "VERY HARD "

    which one to believe ?

    Thanks

    TT seems to get the most respect along with Market Samurai.

    I use traffic travis and I don't think MNF is very trustworthy.
    Btw, why don't you manually check for competition? I always do that before finalizing on a keyword.

    I agree with harry, must check manually before finalize it, make sure that you have selected such decent keywords :)

    There is no definite answer. It depends on the kind of niche your are targeting and the type of site you are building. I have both TT & MNF, sometimes the result will vary according to the niche and site. Experience will be the key.

    finally i found out after i fond a keyword using GKT (google keyword tool) I did a competition analysis on TT and it gave me relatively easy and did the competition analysis on MNF and it gave hard (never go for it red sign ) ,Then i did a manual analysis and bought a the domain did on page and off page SEO and now it is on the fist page of google .

    Moral of the story never relay solely on single keyword tool and also do some manual competition analysis . If i was relaying on MNF i would have not gone for that keyword

    And TT wins hands off

    I like Traffic Travis. It is not a super robust software, but it gives you a good start in the right direction for your sites. I use it when I first create a site, then analyze comp, get some of there links, find some more unique links, then from there build out my own campaign for it.

    I have both Traffic Travis and UNF, I think UNF is better when giving you keyword analysis.

    i use seo quake plugin for the firefox and did a search on the google for the keyword and the seo quake gives the page rank number of links domain age and all the stuffs that you need to know , and did a back link analysis on the domain that is ranking for that keyword using majestic seo (free membership) , That is it you need to see if there is any authority site (if there is more that 4 authority site in google search result I will not go for that keyword ) and you will also develop a gut feeling weather to go for a keyword or not after some experience
    hope this helps

    I love TT. Its usually fairly accurate.
