Is there a tool, hopefully free, where you can copy or upload a list of keywords - up to 40 say.
You select 'exact' or 'broad' matching.
It would return in a nice grid that you can copy and paste into Excel or Textpad easily: 1. Monthly search volumes (Google, Yahoo) 2. Competing: web pages indexed (Google, Yahoo) 3. Competing: in headings 4. Competing: in URL 5. Competing: in page title 6. Competing: in meta tags
You could return up to 300 results if you wished.
You could then further refine by clicking on the keywords on the left in the grid and it would perform the same analysis as above (it auto performs 'broad' match).
Wouldn't this be the best tool to find niche or just good keywords or is there something better?
With a little development you could use the webservices toolkit of the fee based keyword selection tool. You would then be able to upload a list of keywords. But only the competition based on webpages indexed would be available.
