I’ve been searching for good tool to help me better understand market potential, branding and where people are getting traffic from. Here are a couple that have been particularly helpful so far:
Similar Web – Lets you type in a web address of ppl who have a similar product or might be marketing to a similar demographic as you. It give you a breakdown of where all their sire traffic comes from. It is pretty awesome – http://www.similarweb.com/
Google AdWords – I learned you can set up a free account with Googles AdWords, start filling out an add application as if you are placing an add, When you go to put in your key words, it will tell you how often they are searched for. This is great data for branding, creating names for youtube video’s if you want them to be found higher on the search lists and for website optimization. Once yo get this info you can just close the page and don’t have to pay anything. https://adwords.google.com
