Getting top bids in bulk

Does Overture have a facility where I can paste in a whole list of keywords and I get the bids for the top position of each?

You can download a template from the direct traffic and enter in your keywords, titles, descriptions, etc. I believe there is also a setting that will position your keywords in the top spot. Be cautious, you can spend a lot of $$$$ quickly.

Not sure if I was clear enough. I want to get the bid prices for research, not actually bid for the top slot.

The direct traffic center has a bid tool where you can see all the bids by keyword. Also, after your keywords are approved by editorial, the interface where you manage your bids displays the top 5 bids for that keyword.

Actually, that is still not what I am looking for. Think there is a misunderstanding.

I want to enter a keyword list, then click a button and have it show the top bids for all these keywords.

It looks like the Overture tool lets you enter 1 keyword and that gives bids for phrases containing that keyword, but not a whole list of keywords I type in.

Or am I missing something?

Overture used to provide a tool like the one you describe in the Direct Traffic Center.

After the significant update/change at the beginning of October, it seems that tool is gone (or at the very least, moved to a discreet location).

Formerly, from the Manage Precision Match area, you could click "add keywords" then enter several terms. The step prior to entering creative showed you the top five bids for each of your proposed terms. It seems that now, you are sent immediately to the screen for adding your creative.

This doesn't really answer your question I know, but hopefully this will help clear up some of the confusion and one of the more experienced members has some insight into where this has gone.
