Not sure if this has already been mentioned or not, but just in case.

Nope.. you're the first.

April figures were actually up 3 days ago.

Perhaps its a stupid question, but I've always wondered what search engine is Overture getting these results from?

It's not a stupid question. I've wondered the same thing as well.

they get the results from all of their partners,

so far the UK, that would include:

msn, aol, freeserve, alta vista and others.

I will let 1 of our USA friends answer in relation to Overture.com

As others have mentioned before - take these figures with a grain of salt. Automated programs that do searches are widely suspected of tainting the results.

Overture's USA Partners include:

Yahoo, MSN, Lycos, AltaVista, Infospace, CNET, iWon, Excite, Web Crawler, etc.

Of course their Former Partner list is almost longer now ;)

Overture numbers are still a good indication of Yahoo and MSN popularity (the rest aren't worth counting IMHO).

But, the point is if Overture increases popularity then so must Yahoo and MSN.

I see an average CTR of less than 5% on Overture....which means 95% for their partners. Now that is worth having!

I assume it's the same in Germany, isn't it?

So the partners in Germany are now
Yahoo.de, T-Online.de (ISP), Altavista.de, Lycos.de, Fireball.de, MSN.de, AOL.de, Freenet.de (ISP), Dino-Online.de, Tiscali.de, GMX.de ...

Does anyone monitor key word trends on Overture? (I don't have time). It would be interesting to hear the observations of anyone who watches Overture words.

Oleon,

Over DE still provides such a low volume of traffic that one wonders where all the German searchers go. My bet is Google.
