Is wordtracker worth the subscription?
How does it compare to Google and Overture's?

I think wordtracker is worth it - for one thing, you can get it just for one day.

What I often do is save up a bunch of keyword searches, and look ahead on markets I'm interested in, then get Wordtracker for a day or so and run them all through :)

I've used and recommended webmaster-toolkit - cool site. Frankly, I'd like to rebrand some of the tools and offer them to some of my own customers - wonder how much that would cost, and if it's available?

An interesting thread, for sure. But... As I research this, I go to Google and do searches. Then I check the page source. Many of the top pages don't even have keyword meta tags.

Any comments?

Welcome, Treemont! :)

Those are smart sites! There's not much need for the keyword tag.

When we discuss keywords or keyword phrases here, we're not discussing how or what to put in the Meta keyword tag.

We're talking about which keywords to target on the page as a whole. You don't need the keyword tag, but you still need to focus on very specific keyword phrases on each page of your site.

You need to focus them very specifically within your visible text copy that people will read, as well as in your Title tag, and the hyperlinks pointing to your pages.

Hope this helps!

Ok. Just checking. I've had Elsmar.com online since Jan 1996 (originally qs9000.com) but only last December did I decide to take on advertising and 'promote' the site with any seriousness - so I'm still working out some of my understandings of what's going on.

Thanks for the clairification! I appreciate it!

I have written a tool called Keyword Harvester that uses Google Web Services to find keywords that are releated to yours. You can use this list to inspire you as to words you might want to target. You can get Keyword Harvester for free at www.chrisclark.com.

The Keyword Harvester requires the .NET Framework 1.0 to be installed on your machine.
