@fantasticode: thanks, I do realize that the current set provides perhaps some better actionable value. I am, however, thinking of KWs that don't really reflect trends as much. I do have (and had even more of in the past) quite a few perennial KWs that could perhaps be seasonal and yet they would return every year, as the seasons changed. One other thing that strikes me as important looking at some old KWs is that some of them did manage to survive through eHow and Amazon moving in and completely dominating the turf via host crowding. It just looks a bit weird that some KWs would survive in a climate like this and yet they do. There are no KW-targeted link campaigns I ever did for any of them, the pages are not optimized for any keyword and the ones that survived are no better linked internally than the ones that didn't. So, what makes them stick - that's the bit of a mystery I would love to unravel.
The actionable piece that I would love to get from all this is how to make more of those KWs to survive the inevitable eHow plague.
