There isn't a "best" one, they all have flaws.

I normally use Google Adwords Tools for the keyword research. IMO it is the best, although there are many more tools out there like www.adgooroo.com, www.wordtracker.com. Hope these helps

Joys to you

As above I use quite a few, then run them all through google just to get an idea of relative search volumes.

Normally, I do it manually using the Google's www.google.com/sktool/
or Keyword Discoverys free one at www.keyworddiscovery.com/search.html

Recently I've been playing around with MarketSamauri. Google it. I don't want this to be considered spam and I'm not in any way affiliated with. I've been using the trial version and I'm quite impressed. I'll probably end up buying it. It does a lot more than just keyword research. When you find the domain, if you type domain/dojo/ you can watch all the training videos for free.

I personally use Google's AdWords keyword research tool. I find WordTracker and the like have their numbers completely off.
It should give you a general idea of the popular and most competitive keywords in your industry, although you can also use the advanced search query 'intitle:' to determine competitiveness for each keyword.

I've tried a handful of KW Tools in the span of 6 years, five of them were previously mentioned in this thread. I find some of the free keyword tools to be fairly helpful, while others were not. There are also KW tools that I will definitely invest on a full version since it pulls accurate data/results.

I say, try out several KW tools and find out which ones work for you. I normally utilize 2 to 3 keyword tools when analyzing keywords. The key is to research, compare, and do more research. Hope this info helps.
