I came to use the overture keyword tool this morning (http://inventory.overture.com/) and I have seen it times out on me.

Is anyone else seeing this as well? Has this been planned maintenance by overture or is it something more serious?

If you can share any information on this I would appreciate it.

The reason of this tool is to know keywords for which you don't rank, but may rank.

What I said before: all your competition know the same keywords? And then what will you do?

So, looking for those who you are already being found is a bit useless.

far from it, for example you can see which keywords you don't rank well for but could and then you can seo your pages more to get more traffic from those keywords. Thats just one use.

I am sure this tool has always arranged keywords incorrectly. However using ur noodle will work out the correct term the user is looking for.

Thank you YahooSarah for confirming my findings. We have a good relationship with Yahoo spending tens of thousands of pounds each month on PPC, therefore I asked our account manager to see what they could find out. After they spoke to the technicians my original post is what they came back with.

I feel that keyword research and topic matter are what this whole "gig" is about. You may find a niche market that has minimal traffic with clickable users, sometimes volume can cloud over value.
Interest is everything, if you can maintain the interest of your user then you have succeeded.

Look at how long your user views your pages as opposed to the number of pages they visit.

My two cents...
