    Your preferred keyword research tool(s)

    I need to do keyword research for a small boutique featuring designer brands. I am aware of WordTracker.

    If you use another tool or combination of tools, any recommendations are appreciated.

    TIA.

    If you do a quick search you'll find quite a number of threads on this subject.

    I tend to use Google Trends in conjunction with the Google AdWords tool and sometimes WebCEO.

    I also use Google Trends for research. You can do research with your competitors keywords and how they are doing it.

    You're never going to find an exact number of searches. And that's not the point anyway. You have to keep in mind that tools like Google's Adwords Keyword Suggestion Tools and Wordtracker are not to be taken literally. You are supposed to look at the volume of keyword searches by volume relative to each other and major search terms. That will give you an idea of how frequently a search term is being used. The exact number isn't important unless you're conducting trend analysis over an extended period of time. Even then, the exact number doesn't really offer any useful information. A number within 5% - 10% (or maybe more) of the exact number is just as useful. Those rough numbers will clearly expose which terms are popular and which are not. The fact that Google's Adwords Keyword Suggestion Tools or Wordtracker showed no results for a keyword means that it's search volume is extremely low which is all you need to know. Whether it is 1 search or 100 searches doesn't matter. You now know what kind of volume it has and what to expect in terms of competitiveness and traffic.

    For example:

    Let's use these fictitious results for 'stymieebot'

    stymieebot 15000
    stymieebot clone 6000
    stymieebot repellent 5500
    stymieebot stickers 5200
    stymieebot t-shirts 4950
    stymieebot hoolahoop 300
    stymieebot mask 180
    stymieebot uzi 15
    stymieebot cologne 1

    What we can tell is 'stymieebot' is clearly the most popular search term related to 'stymieebot'. The number of searches could be 18,000 or 12,000 and it still would clearly be the primary search term we would hope to rank well for and the most competitive (most likely). 'stymieebot clone', 'stymieebot repellent', 'stymieebot stickers', and 'stymieebot t-shirts' make up the second tier of results. They're grouped relatively close together and their order really is irrelevant. Their order will almost certainly change month-to-month but their average search volume will most likely remain the same. They'll always be searched far less then just 'stymieebot' but still get a decent number of searches each month. Their numbers don't matter because we know how popular they are relative to 'stymieebot' and that they are searched often enough to be worth targeting. 'stymieebot hoolahoop', 'stymieebot mask', 'stymieebot uzi', and 'stymieebot cologne' make up the third tier of results. They're seldom searched for and either will be longtail keywords or ignored completely. The exact number of searches are irrelevant because relative to the first two tiers we can see traffic from these terms will be sporadic at best and can assume they will be easy to target.

    Although there are many tools available in the market but i will suggest you to use wordtracker and keyword discovery in combination with Google Adwords.. For a small website like yours, wordtracker is more than enough as it is providing a detail research for 30 words (in trail version), you just choose the keyword with best KEI ratio and start building your website.
