Have you been using it a lot? Using a program to query it? If so, they've banned your ip temporarily. No worries...like said, it's temporary.

If your using a program...make sure it pauses 4 to 5 seconds in between queries and you'll be fine.

An associate of mine is having an issue with it - and so is his colleague; they both work from home and live near one another. I live about 5 miles away, and have no problems.

Are you in the UK Matthew?

GranMatthew, Have you been using a program to make automatic queries to Overture? Like The Dowser or similar?

I have been using the dowser one week ago and now I can not enter on Overture Keyword Suggestion Tools.

Yes, what I figured out what that they are banning ip numbers from those requesting to much from their tool. That is what has happened to me.
