Can anyone please give me advice on how best to research keywords.
I already check competitors sites to compare keywords and have been using the google adwords keyword tool but find this quite unreliable.
I also compare the level of competing websites by using allinurl: allintitle: and the allinanchor: search terms.
Is there a site or tool that accurately shows how many times a phrase is searched for per month apart from the google adwords keyword tool as after a couple of months research I found a keyphrase which it claimed was search for locally 14000 times per month. Upon getting my site to the top of google for this search term I find I am only receiving approx 30 visitors per day?
The site is well written, clean, advert free and in my opinion looks quite professional so I don't understand the low volume of visitors?
Thanks and any helpful advice will be greatly appreciated.
