    Which PPC spying program do you think is better, Spyfu or Keyword Spy and why do you feel that way?

    They both have their time and place in keyword spying.
    The other picks up where the other lacks.

    I recommend both.

    It's hard to say whether one of these is really better than other. Both of them are a good piece of software with different disadvantages, generally I try to use them both as they seem to compliment themselves nicely.

    I think keyword spy is better because it gives you more updated results

    KeywordSpy is better, surprisingly my client was amazed to see that the keyword data in her Adwords campaigns reflects KeywordSpy reports.

    on Keyword Spy you can check the history of the keywords per domain.( dont remember about spyfu).

    so the keywords that your competitor use month after month those are profitable keywords for sure. you collect all your competitor keywords that he use lets say on the last 3-6 months ( only keywords that repaet over and over each month ) and start with them.

    If I would like to compete in the top positions for my profession in my area, would either of these programs help me to see the keywords the other guys are using that are getting them ranking higher than myself.

    I know I still need to do SEO, etc for rankings as well but wondering if this would also help since I am not using PPC, etc.

    Thanks

    Well keywordspy is better than spyfu, imho.
    But, you should look at semrush also. it rocks.

    What about KeyCompete? It's a highly competitive service at a nice price, but no one ever mentions it, yet it's clearly playing in the same ballpark as SpyFu and KeywordSpy.
