Just wondering what people's opinions were on the best keyword research tool.
We've had a subscription to keyworddiscovery.com for over a year now, their selling point at the time being that they covered more search engines than wordtracker. At first they had the global database, and monthly overture stats.
Since then they've introduced premium versions, both global and national. I'm very interested in Australian stats, so it sounded good.
The premium version means that it is "cleansed" of inflated stats from automatic tools. I guess this means their own searches as well.
But for a recent project, this is what I got:
keyword phrase = "tax planning".
Global premium said 652 searches
Australian premium said 1 search - for a four word related phrase.
Global historical (uncleansed) said 118,177 searches.
Monthly Overture Australia stats said 288 searches.
Beats me how Overture Australia gets 288 searches per month, but Australian Premium only gets 1.
We like to give clients reports on keyword statistics, so they can customise their page content, and at the beginning of a project, to decide on pages.
What is everyone else using for keyword statistics, especially if you are Australian?
