Best keyword competition tool?

What's best for Google keywords: Spyfu, Keyword Spy or Compete?

Hey everyone!

I'm looking into purchasing a keyword competition tool.

Does anyone have a preference among the major tools, like Spyfu, Keyword Spy and Compete?

I'm looking for that which most accurately reports Google PPC keywords.

Thanks for your time,
Shayna

How about Google's own tool?

[adwords.google.com...]

How do you find the keywords your competitors are targeting using the Adwords tool?

ask for a short trial (or make sure you can cancel and get a refund) and see if they can report your own keywords to you, to make sure they work first. :-)

I use a tool called google.com, type a term in the box and search for it, if you see the competitor's ad, you've found either:

- a keyword they exact match bid on
- a longer tail version of, or a precise phrase match keyword they bid on
- a broad match of anything in the same language (or other language) (or a made up word)

Sorry, couldn't resist :)

As RhinoFish hinted, I don't think anything can accurately do this for you, short of a Google insider!

Thanks, chrism. :P

I appreciate everyone's feedback. We're just looking for a comparison between the major competitive keyword research tools, mostly. I see a lot of people are split between Keyword Spy and Spyfu.

I like SEMRush myself.
