    Google Adwords keyword tool is the best free keyword analysis tool to find competition. Also check marketsamurai, long tail pro to find the competition of the keywords. Semrush.com is the best competitor analysis tool.

    You can use Traffic Travis. It shows the competitor sites for the keyword that you're trying to rank for. There is a free version that you can download off the Traffic Travis site.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!

    right so type the ruddy keyword into the search field on Google (and Bing perhaps) and voila the/your competition for said keyword appear right b4 your eyes as if by magic...

    Now you have to do some more typing to try and beat the competition that appear for your keyword by providing better than they do. Simples as Alexandr says >

    To me you seem to be over complicating things needing a tool to tell you what you can see already...

    Along with the suggestions above you could try Keyword Spy too (http://www.keywordspy.com/). I think they offer a free trial.

    Search the word in quotes ("your keyword") to see how many results come back, and what the first page results look like. If you see over 100,000 results, and Amazon or wikipedia pages in the top results, try modifying your keyword search until you get one that's under 100k, and no strong big boy sites ranking at the top of page 1. Other SEO tools can tell you how many backlinks your top competitiors have (if it's under 200, you may be able to easily out backlink them).

    Google Adwords Keyword Tools is for PPC, but it can be used for SEO purposes too.

    As the tool is based on searches in Google search engine.

    how the ruddy nora will that show the competition then?

    Or did Google adwords tool suddenly start telling you who is 1st for this search term or that and who is second and who is third and so on?

    Search engine results clearly show you who is where for a search phrase/term as it lists them in it's preferred order. The trick then is to identify what is preferred, and why, for a particular search term (yes it differs from one to another) by a particular search engine and then better the results you see with something superior in order to out rank.

    Now you might say oh but you can rank without being superior (like the silly black hat games recently with "Mr Cutts paypay loans") but we are talking about sustainable results.

    So just use the search engines to find the competition for any given phrase (keyword research) and then the real hard work begins as you apply the keyword research to real search (as if all that is involved in the keyword research is easy sheesh).

    Bearing in mind of course during your initial keyword research there you will indentify and uncover your competitions keyword phrases and then you have to work out what it takes to beat them when it comes to what they target.

    Finding the competiton is really just "the begining of keyword research" IMHO.

    I like using ahrefs.com. There are free and paid options, but I have found all my answers using the free version.

    Paul gets these back to you super fast. I'd barely finished paying when the reports started rolling in.

    Thanks again Paul!

    Hey guys, i typed in Google search "my keyword" in quotes and it came back - about 22,220 results would you say that is achievable to get a high ranking for?

    Thanks :)

    That is an excellent sign the term is easy to rank for (anything under 30,000 a month is great). Just check the page 1 results to analyze the competition. Is it dominated by Wikipedia, Amazon or You tube links? Or do the competing sites have hundreds of heavy duty backlinks? If they do it may be hard to rank. But if not, with some aggressive backlinking your site will rank easily, given the lo competition number.

    I personally use Google Keyword Tool or otherwise, Google Insights, Google Trends and Google search engine itself is a GREAT tool if you know how to use it and your brain together.
