Overture.fr [fr.overture.com] has gone live now.
Although reach through partners is rather slim by now the introduction of the bid tool and the suggestion tool are good news for webmasters targeting France.

For a current list of partners see this past thread:

So, that is the US and the UK we have for suggestion tools, and now French. Excellent.

And don't forget the german tool, getting better all the time with the collected data behind it growing steadily.

This is probably a problem with the french tool to keep in mind: I suspect the underlying database is very slim at this time.

Thanks for updating the list :)

Fascinating to look at keyword stats, yes?

right on, thanks for the urls!

Can someone who knows French and seo answer this question for me? The english overture tool is not as valuable to us SEOs because of the fact that it eliminates/combines plurals and pushes terms to their 'match driven' equivalent. So we end up not looking at exactly what searchers search for.

Is the same problem evident for the French version? Are the terms I'm looking at true searches, or are plurals and others pushed together?
