I may not be a Yahoo marketing executive, but wouldnt you think it would be easier for advertisers to find keywords to bid on with such a tool? At least google understands still.

Wasn't Yahoo promising a while back to offer some other public tool in the future?

I didn't remember that until you said it Marcia. My yahoo rep (as early as last year) even mentioned something would be available for free. He could have just been pandering to me though.

Even with old data it was a very handy tool since it provided actual numbers. The GOOG tool is nice but the Y! tool was a much better starting point IMHO.

Yeah, doesn't the Adwords tool do the same thing? Maybe the Overture one was better?

The Adwords tool JUST started doing the same thing (providing quantitative query estimates) after Yahoo!'s tool went offline.

Coincidental timing here?

me things so...
