    Is there a way that your wonderful Google Tracker could be adapted to do the same for the "new" Yahoo so that we could see the results side by side?

    :rolleyes:

    Probably not going to happen unless they open up their API. Inktomi has an API, but it's six-figure price-tag (plug monthly fees) to get access to it. So for a free tool, it doesn't really make sense. If they open up their API like Google does, it will be added the same day. :)

    Another option is "screen-scraping" (downloading the actual result pages), but there is so many keywords being tracked right now that it would be a huge bandwidth overhead, and probably would get the IP addresses banned by Yahoo because of the volume of requests required for all the keyword tracker users.
