    I have used Google Adwords to research certain keywords to see if there is a demand for a certain business model.

    However, I wondered what other tools BAF members may recommend for the same purpose?

    Below is my hierarchy to select keywords:

    1. Google search engine - I put myself to user shoe. Public user will refer to search engine, instead of adword. Most of the time user will follow search hints.
    2. Visit competitor site - I believe competitor has make some keywords research, by visiting their site, it can reduce my effort to do analysis from scratch.
    3. Adwords keyword- I use it to analysis keyword competition
    4. Adwords Contextual Targeting Tool - Target similar keywords.
    5. Google analytics and webmaster - review and plan for the following month.

    You can use Word tracker keyword tool which is very efficient tool for SEO, but it is paid tool if you really have budget just go fo it. If not just do research on search engine you will number of keyword suggestion from the websites having same theme as your website.

    Bing is work closely with yahoo and Facebook, and the most important majority user still depend on internet explorer, Bing do collect lot of user data. It is worth for us to spent time on Bing webmaster tool to analyse their keywords and search query.
