    I have been using keywordspy.com, they also show organic results (if any) along with history and each ad text that the competitor is using with what keyword. Forgot to add, that you can export your keyword results into an excel spread sheet.

    You can try seodigger.com - What it does is it accepts a url from the user and it shows the keywords for which that site ranks within the top 20 Google search results.You can sneak on your competitors blog or site and find out what keywords it ranks for highly in Google.Obviously you can also check whether your site?s keyword rank within the Google top 20.

    and adsspy.com - it can show you sites with the same advertising and statistics codes.

    I agree keyword spy is the most comprehensive tool for the sort of information you are looking for. Another alternative is keycompete.com its cheaper not so detailed as keyword spy but not bad either. Both of these are better than spyfu for most things involving PPC.

    I've used all of the above mentioned tools, and the one thing I have to say is that they lack an API. Really you can get a lot of the same information programatically by querying the AdWords or YSN API, and you can aggregate the data much faster.

    That being said, scraping live ads like these services appear to do does have it's own merits, and I would have to agree with what the previous posters said.

    Keywordspy and Spyfu have weaknesses- 2 week lag in stats. PPC cost numbers totally out of whack and usually to the high side. If you run into a marketer that is doing his job and testing ads like crazy, then they really get confused! Totally skews to the high side number of keywords and ads being runs as well as daily ad spend.

    There's only one true competition research dominator. compete.com - and it costs between $200 and $427 per month.
