The Cost of Keyword Research

Keyword research is essential to me in trying to obtain the best results possible from the SERPS and in maximising traffic to my sites
I went to update my subscription at KeywordDiscovery – the yearly subscription is now nearly $600 per year. Although I believe this to be good value for money I spent some time to find a similar tool that is just as comprehensive or more so for a lesser cost. Wordtracker appeared to fit the bill, it is cheaper at $280 approx but does not seem to have the full toolset.

If anyone has any advice as to the best tools for keyword research it would be much appreciated. I will hold back on the $600 for the time being.

    I’d recommend this tool:

    Free, but probably not as feature rich at the other programs you’ve mentioned. I’d be curious to learn what features you value that this one doesn’t have.

    I suggest you try WordZe, see if you like it :) , at $35 a month, that’s cheaper than keyworddiscovery :)

    Thank you for the comments. I ended spending the rest of the day on this. The SEOchat tool is good for a free one but as far as I could make out only gives keywords by count.

    I signed up for a month with WordZe, excellent tool and spent a good few hours on it. It has some extra features that KeywordDiscovery does not have but also lacks I couple of features that I am keen to use:

    1) Regional UK specific data base option

    2) Export of all data including KEI

    Thanks again for your input, most helpful.
