    Looks like it is down, maybe for good?

    Does anyone have any alternatives besides wordtracker that are free? Or even paid ones as well?

    It's not working for me. I just heard Yahoo officially quit supporting it. Jensense had reported this last month that Yahoo was going to do it....I hope they replace it with something else. Dumb move on their part!!

    I still don't get any results from those pages, nor can i load actual inventory.overture.com itself, perhaps it is just getting hammered to hard?

    JenSense.com reported last month that Yahoo was no longer going to support it. It looks like they finally got rid of it. Hopefully, the new Panama will eventually have one integrated.

    I hope they keep it up, or put up something similar. I have multiple scripts that rely on the suggestion tool...

    Hey there,

    I wanted to confirm that YSM's public keyword research tool (formerly known as the Overture’s Keyword Selector Tool- KST) continues to exist today and will continue to exist until we replace it with an improved product. Unfortunately, the responsiveness of this free tool is diminished due to the volume of hits it receives each day, therefore browsers may time out and error pages may appear but it doesn’t mean that this tool has been removed.

    We do have plans to offer a new public keyword research tool, which would be hosted through Yahoo! and available to our API partners. We plan on making this new tool available later this year.

    To answer your question--data for the previous month should be updated by approximately the middle of the next month. In other words, January data should appear by the middle of February.

    I'd have to say that after nearly 18 months from the original post, the inventory.overture keyword tool is still down and most sem's have moved on to other better tools. While the overture tool was pretty decent it was always a tad buggy and slow loading.

    You'll do much better using spyfu or another similar free service

    cheers
