One way is looking at my own logfiles using a tool called Webalizer I was able to find little treasure in the referer field of the logfile.
First I find a search engine, next I look for keywords and what kind of variable name is used for this search engine. Something like "&q=keyword" or "query=" is often used and I add it to the webalizer config file.
This is nice to find keywords that actually give me visitors, I can use this info to put these keyword in bold or in title or in <H1> tags but it doesn't help me to find keywords that are missing from my pages.
I've found a tool that get keywords from a search engine in real time but I don't thing it's a very used searche engine (AnalogX Keyword).
Some website that cover the same topic that I cover use "Extreme Tracking" (IIRC) and this tool show valuable stats publicly. I can see referer to some of my competitors, keywords typed, search engine used, ... but it doesn't work for all website.
Do you know other keyword tool that don't spam search engines with thousand of requests ?
What is the ideal keyword tool for you ? Does it exist ?
