It would be pretty funny if google brought out something similar. If you where to take a look around update time how many of the ten searches do you think would be link:www.yahoo.com lol
What I find interesting with the ATW feature is to watch the spread of languages. I've seen quite a few french and german queries. Also remarkable how many people seem to use the url investigator, i.e. typing in urls.
I wish that they would have a function that you enter a search term and they spit out back how many times it has been searched and from where.
I wish that they did some analytical breakdown, ala Google zeitgeist and Lycos top 50.
>spit out back how many times it has been searched and from where
awcabot, I don't think you'll ANY search engine that'll give you those numbers. If you do, I would like to hear about them. Agreed though, it would be interesting stuff.
But if Google or Fast charged us, say $1.00, for such a keyword report, would they make some profits?
This search shows some weird stuff but its unedited. Watching these searches can do two things for you, it can help you find a new market to throw up a site for because a lot of people are searching for the keywords, maybe new ones? And secondly you may find new sites on the net or new interests from someone elses search phrases.
Cool little tool, I think every search engine needs one of these. But I was pressing the f5 button with windows side by side and i didnt see any of the results move up just a little bit, ie see the same keyword twice within a refresh which makes me wonder if it just randomly pulls up some results for a db somewhere compared to live results which were really searched for.
Interesting thought. I fail to see the need for that though. Since ATW is practically an Overture property at this point it wouldn't make much sense to develop a second suggestion tool.
Also it's certainly more interesting to see the search terms at Fast's portal partners, as with those you'd get a grip on local searches done in specific markets.
This could be a seriously nerdy sort of solitaire to play when really and truly bored. "Catch your Query" it could be called. (If anybody packages the idea and makes millions of dollars off of it, I want credit at least ;) )
ps. we all had the idea ;) I started doing it before I read the rest of the thread.
Couple of new games for those who are board:
How many times do you have to refresh b 4 you get 10 results that don't contain "link.all:"
Anybody got 10 results all containing link.all:
Took me over 30 views to get 10 proper search results and a couple of times i had 9 of the 10 results contain link.all:
Also, funniest and strangest (non porn related cause we all know how weird those searches are) search result is fun to here about:
I can never get over this one i saw a minute ago: www.google.com :)
