That's good question and not one I can answer for you. Primarily because I couldn't find any Russia search data out there.
Let's wait and see if some of the members with experience in Russia care to step up to the plate :)
Overture has a good search data, but it does not apply to the Russian language.
However, I Russian search and internet market is huge.
There are many ways to do it, some of them are more complex than the other. Assuming you have a list of keywords you can just analyse whether all characters in a given keyword belongs exclusively to the Russian (Cyrillic) alphabet. This might require some thought if you support other foreign languages that are not based on ASCII characters.
Have posted your question on [forum.searchengines.ru...] we wait and see if somebody there update us on this issue.
Thank you so much, I greatly appreciate it.
If you are a member and if there is a reply, would you please provide a link or post it here too? So I can receive a notification?
Thank you for your help.
I've got one reply so far.
This service let you list keywords to see the search statistics for the period of a month on this very search engine (rambler.ru):
Even this SE is not the biggest in Russia, it shoud still give a hint.
We wait to see if someone replies with more general stats there (i'll post it here if more replies arrive).
If you need more help "sticky" me on this.
Another reply arrived saying that one can use SpyLog service for this.
You see the results of a short research done by me below:
You can order "Branch monitoring" report from here:
where you ask them to monitor the sector you are interested in.
Here are three kind of reports that they offer with prices
the first one "basic" is free of charge :-)
thank you so much, I greatly appreciate it.
I am going to study them.
One more reply arrived:
Same keyword stat tools for
Yandex (russian no. 1 SE)
I think based on these three keywordtools you can make a reasonable estimate that you need.
This is so valuable
