    To be honest Bilal, I don’t really think that one should obsess over keywords too much. If you write good content, you are bound to include keywords in it naturally. Also users are more likely to share and link to good content, over content that looks like it is written for search engines.

    I can see the value of the tools you have listed, but feel that you probably shouldn’t use them too much.

      Chris@ Keyword Research is very important and one should not ignore it. If the traffic of a keyword is not known then you may waste your precious time on something that has no traffic.

      Yes i agree that one should not use the tools all the time, but you must use it if you are launching a new blog which really needs research. Without initial research a project can fail even at the introduction stage.
