Is the Yahoo overture gone forever? Here’s what to do about it
Inventory.Overture.com – where did it go?
I was hoping it didn’t come to this, but I’ve been monitoring Inventory.overture.com since last night and still haven’t been able to access it.
So what does this all mean?
The Internet is a fast animal and change is everywhere. We all need to learn to adapt and grow as needed, and that is what we are doing now regarding Inventory.Overture.com and its market research.
So, I have put together some FREE keyword tools that are working. Some of these use the overture database, but that’s fine as they are still working at the moment.
I recommend using these tools in the order I recommend, as it gets more “complicated” as I go through the list. Please note that these are not affiliate links!
This overture-based tool seems to keep working. I recommend using it first as it will give you the same results as Inventory.overture.com. Just type your keyword phrase in the box in the upper left corner and click GO.
After this, you will be asked to enter the security code to verify that it is a human doing the search (not a robot!). Write the security code they give you and click search.
You will see that your screen is divided into 2 halves. What we are looking for is on the right side of the screen. If you get an error message or a server busy message on the right side of the screen, just click the try again button or retry the search by typing your keyword phrase into the search box at the top left. from the screen and click go.
If this tool doesn’t work, go to the next tool below.
2. VRE toolbar
This tool also uses the Overture database. To use it, simply type your keyword phrase in the search box and click Suggest. If you get an error message, keep clicking Suggest until the results are displayed.
If this tool doesn’t work, continue to the next one below.
3. Country of domain
This tool is valuable and gives you 2 different database results for your key phrases. To perform a search, type your keyword phrase in the search box and press ENTER on your keyboard. There is no search button that you have seen, so you will have to press ENTER to search.
Look at the results as they appear on the right side of the page. This is what you should base your market research on.
If that tool fails, this is your next best option.
4. Taxi niche
WARNING: There is a photo of a scantily clad woman on this site. It’s nothing we don’t see on broadcast TV every day, but I just wanted to let you know before you click the link.
However, as a tool, Niche taxi works very well. Just type your keyword phrase in the search box and click OK. Don’t forget to check the box below the search box that says “I accept the Terms and Conditions of nichetaxi.com”. From there, Niche Taxi will give you a list of results. You can then further narrow your search by clicking on the results and “drilling down”.
A great function of Niche Taxi is that it advises you on whether or not you have found a niche. However, don’t worry about this. Many times they will say that you don’t have a niche, even when you do. Just focus on search terms per month.
If this tool doesn’t do it for you, this is your next best option.
5. Classic bot niche
Type your keyword phrase in the search box and click search. You will get 10 results with numbers indicating how many searches were done in the last month. From there, you can click on the words to go deeper into the niche.
This site only offers 10 results at a time, so it is not the best. But it’s FREE!
6. Google keyword tool
This is the research tool that Google has created. While it has many great benefits, such as access to the Google database, the results that are displayed are often difficult to understand or understand.
This latest tool is something that could end up becoming the new “free” keyword research tool should the overture officially close. I don’t want to confuse you too much and spend too much time with this unless it is necessary.
Here is a brief overview of how to use this tool. The only problem with this is that you don’t get actual numbers of searches per month, you get a chart showing 1-5 based on monthly search volume.
Halfway down the page, you will see a box that says: “Please enter one keyword or phrase per line:”
In the box below that line, write your keyword (s). Note that you can do more than one keyword search at a time, but I recommend sticking to one.
Type your keyword phrase in the box and click Get more keywords. From here you will see 4 rows of data.
Row 1 is the results for the keywords. Row 2 is the monthly search volume. Row 3 is the number of people competing in this market, and row 4 is something we don’t need to know at this point; D.
The main thing you’ll see is Row 2. Row 2 tells us how many people have searched for that term in the last month. The longer the green in the box, the greater the number of searches.
Look out for higher search volume for your main keyword and then lower search volume for your niche keywords within those phrases.
For example, using “Make money”.
The term “Make money” has a search volume of 5 (basically, this means that the search volume box is completely filled). But, other keyword phrases like “Make money from home” and “Make money working from home” have less search volume.
It’s important to note that the search volume ranges from 1 to 5. You won’t see these numbers, but you can tell by looking at the amount of green in the boxes below Row 2.
For what we are doing, you can ignore rows 3 and 4 entirely.
And this is how you use the Google Keyword Tool.
So there you have it. Go ahead and start looking for that perfect niche.
