Wordtracker vs Keyword Discovery

There’s an interesting thread over at HighRankings Forums on Wordtracker and Keyword Discovery debating the accuracy, pros and cons of each. I’ve been a Wordtracker user for at least 6 years and have been dabbling with Keyword Discovery off and on for 2 or 3 years. Both have their pluses and shortcomings.

Of course, when I need to outsource keyword analysis, I just go to Dan Thies over at SEO Research Labs, who by the way, should be the topic of the next Spotlight on Search interview.

Update: Aaron at his newly designed SEOBook site posts a link to a free link building video from one of Dan’s teleclasses.

I am curious if readers of this blog can help me out and provide any insight into your use of Wordtracker and Keyword Discovery for keyword research and analysis? Likes, Dislikes? If I were to switch to just one service, which would you recommend?

    I am not using WordPress , BUT can’t find a place to add this code to. They make it very difficult. I can’t really customize the look of the blog the way you did it.
