    Word Tracker

    I'm considering using Word Tracker to find the most appropriate keywords for a few of my own sites. I have a large list of relevant terms but want to select the most appropriate terms for search engine marketing.

    Has anyone any experience of or comments on Word Tracker?

    Did you find it effective?

    Is it worth purchasing if you only have a few sites or is it more appropriate for someone who does SEO professionally?

    Would paying a professional to provide keywords be a better option?

    Thanks,

    Fergal

    I think you should save your money, and use a free tool such as NICHEBOT which takes use of wordtracker..DigitalPoint.com also has some great tools also..

    Thanks

    tbase, thanks a lot for your suggestions, checking those sites out now. Nichebot appears to be an excellent resource, gives exactly the kind of information I need.

    BTW really like your onseo site, especially the "Google SERP Position Check" tool. Had been looking for one of those. Recently went to an SEO training workshop and asked the tutor for exactly that, he said he wasn't aware of any. Good luck with your site development.

    Comments from anyone else on benefits of outsourcing keyword selection would be welcomed.

    Glad I could help..

    As for OnSEO.com...those tool are still being developed..I just put those up for testing, and will be "finishing" the halfway done site I have there soon.
    I have been developing an SEO Tool bar lately, and the website was put on hold.My SEO Toolbar will incorporate many of the popular keyword tools that are out there, and many other feature.I have a rather long thread about it here SEO Toolbar thread

    Check it out if you would like to test the soon to be released beta.

    Thanks

    Proudirish.com, do you use Adwords? If yes, they have a pretty handy keyword tool too. Maybe it's not very accurate, but it does give you some picture.

    Paid for Wordtracker includes multiple search databases, plus a KEI index. Certainly worth paying for. I don't believe you get those on the free Wordtracker, so I would be very surprised if they are being covered elsewhere in free tools.

    Wordtracker

    I paid for a wordtracker subscription myself and have been using it for nearly 6 months.

    IMO wordtracker MUST be used in conjunction with overture keyword finder. One is for the meta-engines while the other for gross search numbers.

    The results in WT that I've used are excellent on my sites and it's very, very easy to construct a top ten page when you track the right words!

    Didn't mean to sound like an ad.

    I purchased a 1 day subscription for Wordtracker, just to try it out and see if it's worth the money, and I am very impressed. It's very comprehensive. I've looked everywhere to find a free keyword search that does that kind of job, but the free ones just don't compare.

    So, I say, it's definitely worth the money if you're serious about getting the right keywords. The keywords in free tools seem way too general to me.

    I've used Wordtracker for all my campaigns. I've tried Nichebot and while it's good, it doesn't do near the stuff that WT does. Then again it's free so...

    Thanks to everyone for your most informative responses. Next time I've a couple of days free I'll purchase WT and see how it goes.
