    The Overture Bid tool is no more.

    If you have an advertiser account with Ask, they have a good one.

    Your link has an extra http:// in it by the way so it doesn't work.

    Thanks but I'm looking for an alternative to the overture keyword bid tool... It gives you an idea of how much a keywords bid is.

    I've looked around quite a bit over the past week, the only one I've found is the ASK.com bid tool.

    Thanks for your help.:)

    I would have to create an advertising account with ask.com in order to use it, correct? I really don't want to have to create an account but if that's the only way to gain access to the tool, I will.

    Yes, you have to create an account. They have great quality traffic, though.

    You have to create a campaign and ad, then go to add keywords to it. :p

    I might sign up to use the tool, but Ask.com can't possibly drive much traffic can they?

    I guess you could sign up and then pause or cancel your campaign.
