the count column is described as the # of times the keyword has been searched for in the last 60 days. These numbers look very, very low to me. I know that I must be mis-understandign SOMETHING. Any help would be appreciated.
For example, MSN has more older women using its service, and as the stock homepage to every IE user on the planet the majority of MSN searchers are probably users who never bother to change it (i.e. novice users).
Dogpile is a niche metacrawler engine and most of its users are probably more advanced, and thus not looking for 'email' and 'cell phone'. 'linux' returns 4832 hits on WordTracker, and I highly doubt more people care about linux than cell phones in the overall internet world.
So part of our research should be on the use of engines and not just numbers of searches (which, theoretically, could change dramatically overnight anyway). MSN is more of the layman engine, Google is a little more techie, and Yahoo is in the middle of the two. Engines like Vivisimo likely have a very techie/advanced userbase.
