The biggest problem with bought in databases is that the information is skewed by people checking on their own sites.
Exactly! How about going to the people themselves who we would actually want to reach? Or those off-line whose market research and targeting is independent of running keyword software?
>How about reading niche forums and sites like Yahoo and Google Groups? >How about going to the library (remember those?) and skimming through periodicals that have spent a ton of money on how to use language in their publications that will appeal to their target audience? >How about going to a "boring" textbook on grammar to refresh memory on what adverbs and adjectives are?
Anyone think users don't use adverbs and adjectives when they think and when they search? Think again!
