Why are they doing this for free? Won't it affect their sales?

They have a pitch to pay to get the longtail words :-)

So glad for the heads-up on this!

>>Why are they doing this for free? Won't it affect their sales?

How can the value of branding be measured? Brilliant marketing move on their part!

People who knew how to milk the free Overture tool for all its worth will know how to use this one for maximum worth too, but that doesn't mean everyone knew how, so not everyone will know how to do the same with this. This will more than likely bring them even more paid business, and their timing couldn't have been better.

I played with this tool into the wee hours last night. I've used the free tools that have been around in the past and they've been helpful but seeing this bigger scheme of things is so much better. I don't publish new pages as frequently as many do but I research the topic and put time into writing the article so it makes sense to be wise about what I choose to write about.

Overture's tool has stopped working - they want to gain a bigger chunk of the market by offering this service to ex-Overture users and then trying to convert them to the 'bigger, better' paid product

How to interpret the results? I am quite a newbie...
For example: "find singles" shows 67 searches for "find singles" and 17 searches for "find singles in your area". What does 67 and 17 mean?

Those are the estimated daily number of searches for the terms.

Daily? 67*30 = 2010, only 2010 searches / month for such a popular term? Are you sure about this?

Also, how accurate are these infos?
I just checked another very popular term (you can guess what...) and the following term is searched 59 times: "all day long i dream about s*x".
So, let's compare 2 terms: "find singles" with the above long phrase. They both are getting about the same number of searches?

OK, so it looks like the above example was not the best because actually the second term is a song I do not know... most probably everyone else does...

According to the description, the esimates come from 0.63% of the searches using Dogpile and Metacrawler.

Actually, that's not what the description says. It says that the searches they collect from Dogpile and Metacrawler "account for 0.63% of searches across all engines."

That's a very small sample for making long tail predictions. It's a very pretty tool, and, for terms with enough searches, when used it conjunction with other tools, it can sometimes be helpful.

I'd hate to see the Overture data... imperfect as it is... disappear.

I tried both keyword discovery and the wordtracker engine -- the results were quite different for the various keywords I used -- anyone have any idea (I'm sure someone does) why the diff? And, which one might be more accurate and helpful.

Thanks.
