can you give ideas on how you can actually defeat your other competitors with your single word tags?

what i mean is that isn't it we have a single word, two word phrase, three word phrase and a four word phrase for keywords... and we can't deny that those single word keywords are really difficult to rank... now my question will be how can you actually compete among the other websites having that same keyword which considering that it is only a single word...

thanks...

Honestly, one-word keyword phrases are usually entirely too general and convert very poorly. The 2-4 word phrases are more specific, more qualifying, and convert at a much higher rate - and are also easier to rank for.

I wouldnt even advise someone to optimize for a single word...

There might be exceptions of course, but in general its not a good idea.

I'm not sure which one you're referring to... but I use and recommend WordTracker. It is the industry standard for keyword research, and the closest thing to "accurate" we have.

When i clicked on the link given in the first post of this thread ie;http://www.pixelfast.com/overture/

My anti virus alerts me with following :-
detected: Trojan program Trojan-Downloader.HTML.Agent.ij URL: http://www.pixelfast.com/overture/ Unsafe page


Maybe there is some malicious code on this link.

Try using http://tools.seobook.com/keyword-tools/seobook/

This has approximate searches of keywords per day :
Google, Yahoo and MSN including the wordtracker searches itself...

That pixelfast link was the "standard" back in the day when Overture ruled the FREE keyword search world. However, since Overture died so too did the pixelfast resource.

The tool Cooluks provided is an excellent tool. I use it from time-to-time but for quick analysis on keywords and niches, I use the free WordTracker tool:

http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/key ... -tool.html

This tool will give you the top 100 keywords with DAILY estimates. The data is based on 90 days of history.

For a full year's worth of history, use Keyword Discovery's free tool:
http://www.keyworddiscovery.com/search.html

You'll get the top 100 keywords but the numbers shown are for the entire year. Take the number and divide by 12 to get the est. monthly figure (or by 365 to get the est. daily).

The Keyword Discovery tool is excellent when you need to do research on seasonal niches - when your niche is "out of season."
