I have been using overture for some years to obtain keyword numbers , its always good to get an indication of what people are searching for in cold hard numbers . ( http://inventory.overture.com )

1. is any other search engines allowing indications of searches done in their system ?

2. and the point of this post ...
heres a results page for widgets ... ( yes i have changed the keyword )

MY POINT HERE is I simply dont beleive 545 people typed in the full words " widget kingdom united " , this has made me lose trust in these results ... any thoughts ? on why it would throw this up ? its an unnatural wording of the term and i also dont beleive real humans would type out this full wording , most would simply type UK surely ?

Searches done in March 2007

not sure about the overture aspect, but as this relates to keywords, I thought I'd mention a pending addon that is about to be released, which generates keywords for you using categories etc, and also allows you to add "manual" keywords which then get added to the generated keywords.
We'll be releasing some kind of keyword bundle soon, and/or include the keywords-template-field addon with it. I'll post again when that's released.

If anyone's got any suggestions on the overture/keyword aspect, feel free to post here as per bluesky's question/issue.
