    You would use a Samurai as a good tool????
    What has the old world come to?
    A Samurai shopping at a market????
    The code of bushido does not allow for such things!

    Give me your Head! lol

    It's a good tool, but it has a ton of information that might be confusing if you are just starting out.  The problem for a new person is going to be analysis paralysis if you aren't careful.

    I have come to the conclusion this tool can be too complicated and follows a particular pattern. I'm new to all this but I do think finding the most appropriate keyword is an art rather than a science. You need to be creative and think laterally and what works for one may not for another. I'm going to rely on my own research and methodology. Thanks guys for all your views though, did help me to form an opinion.
