    Hi, I've been playing with the Market*Samurai software to find niche KWs, however I rank #1 in Google for a one word keyword that I found through this software - with not much in the way of traffic from it. Yet, MS predicted 306 hits a day from that keyword. You can see the thread here:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/member-downloads/19109-get-m-arke-t-amu-rai.html

    My question is - What keyword software programs do you guys use to find niche keywords, and are any of them accurate at predicting your daily traffic? Also, are you guys getting the return for a phrase (i.e. you target "shitty keyword" and get traffic for it, not that everyone's actually searching for "keyword shitty")? Kinda hard to type what I mean, I hope you guys get it!

    Thank you!

    I wasn't real impressed with Market Samurai, and Google's Adwords tool is severely lacking in data.

    Depending on what exactly I'm trying to do, I use the G keyword tool, the SEO book keyword tool (free version), Keyword Elite (good prog), and now thanks to madinaz, Micro Niche Finder. If you want to rank for "keyword shitty", that's what you have to target; even if it doesn't make sense.

    Most searchers would look for "red wagon". So, it would stand to reason that you will never see any traffic for that popular term if you are busy trying to target "wagon red".

    Yeah basically I was targeting "red wagon" but not ranking for it, yet ranking number one for other keywords with the same amount of competition, using the same tactics, the only difference was that they were "one word keywords".

    Oh and yeti_racer, did you buy Micro Niche Finder?

    keyword tools only tell how many searches are done on the word worldwide
    But when a user searches the net he/she gets geo targetted
    So the tools don't tell you all

    I always go for keywords with over 100 searches a day which is 3000 searches in adwords.

    Are you sure you have not made the mistake of thinking adwords showed DAILY searches?

    Common sense. There is no "good" keyword tool that exists that will give you accurate counts, so you kind of have to go on experience.

    I use GK to get ideas, for example I would find out the synonyms for a medical technician and then I take all these keywords and spin them into different combos throughout my pages.
    Eventually you will get a sense of what kind of keyword phrases will get hits, but I don't know of a mathematical formula.

    Usually I just write the articles first adding more general keywords, then when I go over it the second time to proofread I will use latent semantic indexing.

    I did not. I was lucky enough to get in on of of the giveaways that madinaz did here and score a free copy. That being said, I've been using the crap out of it since I got it, and I REALLY like it. The SOC (strength of competition) feature is my favorite. It will analyze your KW in quotes, allintitle, allinurl, and some other stuff and give you a score for how much competition there is for the keyword. It's saved me quite a bit of time finding good long tails. Worth the money in my opinion.

    I use keywordtopia. It takes data (small cost per query) from Wordtracker. I have found this to be a good tool, but common sense along with actual queries that have quotes around the keyword on each search engine for checking the actual competing pages is good too.

    Peace,

    wordze... the have a nice api and you can grab the keywords by http request, very useful. But no so useful if you look for real niches, they dont show many results for "where to buy a fridge in alaska" etc.

    But the api unfortunately only shows the estimated / real kw query count, but not more informative numbers (as in the html page) ==> for automatically created landing/doorway pages ok, but not for semi-manual niches.
