Has Yahoo now removed the Overture keyword suggestion tool as well? I can't seem to access it at:
inventory.overture.com
or their UK page:
[inventory.uk.overture.com...]

Anyone else having the same problem?

[inventory.overture.com...] is still working in the US.

Bid Tool has been gone for a while for me however.

I believe it has moved to [inventory.overture.com...] although it is still somewhat sporadic at present.

I'm having difficulty in the US. When I can get to the tool (which is rare), I only get results for the most common words -- for example, "book". But if I put in something like "concrete", which has a narrower search volume, I received a 'no results available' message.

They said quite some time ago that they would be stopping support for that tool very soon. Maybe soon has finally come.

The UK version is working great up here in Canada - I've noticed the tool going down for a few minutes from time to time for years however... I think it's caused by the high spammer/scraper search load?

Free keyword suggestion tool of WordTracker. You don't have to register on wordtracker for using this interface.

[freekeywords.wordtracker.com...]

Thanks for the link to the free wordtracker page, I used to use them a fair bit when they offered 1 day access, and gave you 3 days, now it is a week minimum I just don't use it.

And yes the UK suggestion is working for me today as well, thanks for that - I did not know it existed.

Hi there,

Thanks for all the feedback.

With the launch of the new Sponsored Search system, the Keyword Selector Tool is no longer supported by Yahoo! Search Marketing. Thus, the data it would show for the current month is not reflective of the true volume of traffic on our network.

We plan to soon adjust the tool to show information from January 2007, as this is the last month from which we can provide search data. In the interim, we recommend that you use the more robust forecasting capabilities in the new Sponsored Search to gain insight into expected performance.

With our new Sponsored Search system now in place, we’re looking at the different needs across our advertiser base to develop new, more tailored keyword data tools in the future.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Hope this helps out.

All the best,
YahooPete

I can't believe Yahoo made a blunder like this. If you're concerned with non-advertisers using the keyword suggestion tool, than keep the same tool but make sure that its only accessible by advertisers. I tried Overture's new version of the keyword suggestion tool which is available for advertisers, its awful. The old tool was great, why couldn't they have just retained it? Pointless.

Nooooo... why would Yahoo make obvious mistakes like this (bid tool and now the keyword tool)?

Everybody and his dog were using the keyword tool, why not cash on it's popularity instead of pulling it out from the market?

Yahoo could make a mint with tunneling people from that service to their other webmaster related services and the possibilities in that regard are endless.

People are not going to use the new tool that's for advertisers only, instead, all the other keyword tool providers will get an avalanche of customers.

You have to admit that if AdRank is determined not only by bid, than bid tool is almost useless. However, Yahoo is copying Google, but at the same time is losing all the advantages they had towards G. They are just becoming a shade of Google, without anything specific.

Actually using the new keyword suggestion tool and spending a lot of time with it, it is much more useful then the old one, and can really get you an extremely extensive detailed list of words.

Ain't that the truth! Google passes wind and Semel's office smells for days.
