    aahh.. i should have noticed "Phase to Broad Ratio" column in MS. as google keywords have the "exact" keywords column..

    i should have crosschecked it with other tools..

    ya, MS and MNF using google keywords data, result should be same.
    MS shows daily search, while MNF & G. KE show monthly search. Yes you must x-check data because MS/MNF not always pull accurate data.

    MS has a drop down list which you can choose either broad, phrase or exact match. About "Phrase to Broad Ratio", you should put 10%~15% to filter out weird keyword sequence.

    Also taking off the synonyms option in goog keyword also helps you to shuffle through the shit sometimes, getting to searches with just your keyphrase in there

    One vote for MNF!

    Well, it actually depends on what kind of data do you expect from these tools.

    IF it's for FULL and DETAILED data, then I guess nothing can beat MS.

    But if it's for looking some micro niches with low competition, just go for MNF. It's named MICRO NICHE finder for a reason obviously. Heh..

    Yeah, agree with you.

    All in all, you can always do the research yourself if you want. Use all the techniques of looking for niche keyword bla bla bla by analyzing here and there. Yes, you can always do this manually.

    But the bottomline here is the automation. We want to simplify and make everything easier. TIME is the most precious thing someone could have when doing IM business. Here is where all these software come into place.

    Gooogl Keywords is no hassle quick search, especially with the other G-tools like statistics and trends...and afterwards to groom ya niche you do more research with the other external special tools anyway..

    With MNF you have to watch out for keywords with the 's... When I first started using MNF I thought I had discovered a bunch of gold mines, turns out it was only a glitch.

    A little bit of "pulse.ebay com" is always good also, and don't forget the good old amazon-hunter...

    All seem to be a little over inflated results IMHO.

    start with google, then move to MS or micro nich finder to see the sweet ones.
