Type in any search phrase, and SpyFu will show you:
- The top organic and paid search results
- The number of advertisers who have purchased that term
- Other terms also bought by these advertisers
- Clicks per day and cost per click
A useful keyword density tool that provides a visual display of the most prominent keywords for any site, along with a keyword frequency and density table. Note that this tool works much better with IE than with FireFox.
Google AdWords: Keyword Tool
Enter a search phrase, and this Google tool will display related keywords along with advertiser competition and search volume; average cost per click and ad position by bid amount; and global search volume trends over time.
A subscription-based service (free registration required) that provides daily reports of your site's ranking for keywords you choose across all the major search engines. A great tool for monitoring the results of your SEO efforts. For one-off or periodic checks, I still like the search engine rankings tool from Mike's Marketing Tools.
Finally, Backflip is still my favorite tool for organizing marketing research, and Free Essential Tools for Blogger Blogs from Quick Online Tips is a must-have list of tools for business blogging.
