The facts are in from unbiased, 3rd party research groups and the majority of searches on the web are done via Google. I have had great success with search engine traffic due to free information from Overture’s Keyword Search Tool. Of course there are many searches done on Google that are also done on Yahoo. For instance: If “widget” had 1,738 searches through Yahoo; Google on the other hand might have had 8,867 searches for “widget”. In this case, “widget” goes from being of medium importance to maybe being the central focus of SEO for my site.
All internet entrepreneurs, like my self, that practice effective SEO, could really, seriously use a tool like Overture for Google. If anyone knows of a free tool like this PLEASE let me know.
The problem I have with alot of the software out there is that it simply pulls keywords from related site’s meta tags. I mean c’mon I can do that myself!
