Keywordspy is absolutely totally and utterly a pointless piece of crap. Its what happens when some idiot has learned about how the internet works and then tries to make money from other people who don't know. Keywordspy won't get you anywhere at all except slightly poorer than you were before. It serves no purpose except to make some moron money...which is why you will be able to find hundreds of purile comments on the internet about how fantastic this software is. They go like this.

"Hey everyone, this is a great forum/blog/site and by the way I just found this great piece of kit that will make life so much easier for you. I don't work for the company or i don't get paid for writing comments like this on web-forums for people to read , but its called keywordspy...yes thats right KEYWORDSPY and its great. My life is sooooo much easier since i found it. Remember its called Keywordspy an its great"

You CAN'T get a better rank because you copied someone's keywords...the internet doesn't work like that and the owner of keywordSLY knows it and makes money cos you don't.
